William Randolph Hearst: A Staged Reading (New Date!) (Free - All Welcome)

Course Description:

William Randolph Hearst, castle builder, yellow journalist and consummate philanderer was, for many decades, a man of limitless ambition and wealth. Join us for an illuminating staged reading featuring Hearst and those who knew him best, including Phoebe Hearst, his indulgent mother; Julia Morgan, the architect of Hearst Castle; Marion Davies, his showgirl mistress; and Joseph Pulitzer, his arch enemy. This special viewing of a life performance recorded in late 2020 will be introduced by writer/director, Carol Marquart, and followed by a Q&A session with the actors. Offered in partnership with the Monterey County Theatre Alliance (MCTA).
