Local playwright to see work come to life

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - A local man has written an original stage play, which is now being featured and performed by the Players of Utica.

Nicholas Priore is producer, director and writer of "With a Shrug." He says he has been a storyteller since he learned to speak, and has been writing plays since he learned how to write. Priore is excited for his newest creation to come to life.

"It means everything," Priore said. "It's the most important thing to me. It's infinitely more important than any New York City production, any kind of off-Broadway thing. To do something here at Players for people of Utica, for family, friends, that's the most important thing.

The show will be at 2 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Monday.
