Hypnotta, The First Table Reading

Updated: Dec 9, 2020


"The Science Times" c. 2008 Doug Auld: Religion in Uniform Art Series; Oil on canvas, 40 x 50

As family and friends gather around a table to share stories, laughter, and a great meal, the holidays remind us that together we have so much to give and receive. This Sunday our small group of family and friends will sit in the comfort of their homes with a hot coffee, tea, and/or a peppermint hot chocolate to enjoy the story of Hypnotta the musical.


Before a show, movie, or play actors gather around a table to read the script aloud. Each person plays a different role or one person can read several roles. Sunday, December 13 at 1 pm EST we will have the first ever table read of Hypnotta. Close family and friends will meet via Zoom to read the entire play along with hearing the original 18 songs written for the play.


Hypnotta is written to be a stage show. We have seen many movies and shows, but I felt this would be a unique way to express an unusual topic. Unfortunately, theaters have been on hold and will continue into 2021. But that doesn’t stop the show, I would like to take this opportunity to open the Table Read of Hypnotta to a small audience who can listen in and share their comments and feedback after the reading. We have limited space, but you can email me to reserve a spot at the Table Reading: dougrauld@gmail.com.


This opportunity will give me the ability to hear the show outside my own head, evaluate the story for its peaks and valleys as well as a "real time" length of the show. The songs will take up 1 hour and ten minutes and I estimate another hour or so of dialogue added.


Thank you to all who will be participating in the Table Read and to all those who have supported the musical by signing up on the website. I look forward to sharing how this story will unfold. Please share the site with your family and friends so we can get the message out to those who will enjoy the spirit of the story!


And remember, "hypnotta is a word, not a word you ever heard but when you hear it, you hear it."


A special thank to our cast for participating in the Table Read for Hypnotta, the musical.
