The Schoolhouse Arts Center,16 Richville Road in Standish presents one-performance-only of the World Premiere of Zachariah Stearn’s new one man show: The King Of Keys on Friday January 25 at 7 p.m. It is a combination of theatrics, music and heart.
With stories from his childhood to monologues performed with depth, to brand new never-heard-before original songs created by Stearn and local lyricist, Neil Ruecker, the King Of Keys is the raw performance of an entertainer who gives the audience a piece of his heart through his art. Proceeds from the show will go to support the purchase of new sound systems at the Schoolhouse theater in Standish.
Stearn is a national celebrity who grew up in Augusta. He began performing as a professional stand-up comedian at age 10. He has performed at venues across America and thrilled local audiences last year with an exciting stand-up comedy benefit at Schoolhouse. Anyone who attended the Schoolhouse performance of Beauty and the Beast in 2016 will remember Zac’s illuminating performance of Luminaire, the candlestick. Stearn directed Peter Pan and in 2018 Seussical the Musical at Schoolhouse.
He has entertained crowds on many stages across the southern Maine area. And last year was hired by Schoolhouse to be their artistic director. Stearn has been applauded in his new position as bringing new energy, new vision, and new direction to Schoolhouse.
