Stanislavskaya receives musical theater award
Katya Stanislavskaya, who wrote and composed the musical “Resident Alien,” recently won the ninth annual New Musical Award from the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company in Weston, Vermont.
Stanislavskaya, an assistant professor and director for the musical theater program at Western Carolina University, has recently wrapped up musical direction of the campus production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
“Resident Alien” is the story of a family of three, part of the third wave of Soviet and post-Soviet immigration to the U.S. in the 1990s.
Instead of a cash award, “Resident Alien” will be rehearsed, performed and recorded as a marketable CD. There will be two public performances, one at Weston and the other an industry-only preview in New York City.
