Playwriting

In October of 2019, Nina's original 10-minute play "Disconnected" was accepted for the Columbia College Chicago event "Playwrights Aloud," a dramatic reading.

Productions

Nina's passion for storytelling and music merge in the form of musical productions. She's had the privilege of working with the Reel Kids Theater in Boulder, CO, using their space and talent pool to experiment with storytelling in stage form. Both productions pushed the boundaries between actor and audience, seeking to explore the endless engagement opportunities of immersion and interactivity.

Ghost in the Spotlight

Ghost in the Spotlight is short, two act musical about a ghost named Chelsea who has the opportunity to come back to life, if she can get someone to agree to die in her stead. It was performed in early August of 2017, and all proceeds from ticket and concession sales were donated, half to the Reel Kids Theater and half to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention.

Audience participation was heavily incorporated into the show. Audience members were pulled onto the stage and put into scenes that otherwise would have been monologues, or filling them into the ensemble. In addition, the seats were spaced apart to create a feeling of isolation, and actors would often wander through the audience, sometimes interacting with people or bringing them onto the stage.

This show was written, produced, directed and starred in by Nina Moldawsky, but could have never happened without the amazing support and collaboration of the cast and crew.

Clocktower

Clocktower is a one act musical that tells the story of a girl in a clocktower wondering who she is and why she is there. It was performed twice in June of 2016, and all proceeds from ticket and concession sales were donated half to the theater again, and half to a non-profit life-skills program for teens called Edgestrider Academy.

For this show we used the dynamic space of the Reel Kids Theater to make the stage wrap around the audience. The seats were set up diagonally to face two walls of the square space, and actors moved back and forth in front of them. To build off this immersion, the narrator would often sit down in the audience, sometimes speaking from there.
