The SAG-AFTRA San Francisco-Northern California Local presents a staged reading of selected scenes and songs from the new musical, Gold Mountain, by critically acclaimed SAG-AFTRA actor, composer and playwright Jason Ma. Gold Mountain is directed by nationally renowned director (and SAG-AFTRA member) Alan Muraoka. Proceeds from the reading will benefit The SAG-AFTRA Foundation. The reading features local SAG-AFTRA actors Michael Ching, Brian Rivera and Colin Thomson. 

On display at the theater will also be the traveling exhibit, The Chinese and the Iron Road: Building the Transcontinental, on loan from the Chinese Historical Society of America. A reception will follow the reading. 

Gold Mountain is a love story set against the backdrop of a pivotal event in America’s history – the construction of the first transcontinental railroad – and celebrates the striving immigrant spirit, the redemptive power of love and the ultimate nobility of self-sacrifice. The 2016 ASCAP/DreamWorks Musical Theatre Workshop selected Gold Mountain for a performance at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills last February, directed by Muraoka. The play was recently named a finalist by the East West Players (EWP) and New Musicals Inc. (NMI) for their joint initiative to develop a new musical.

He has been a teaching artist in both New York and Los Angeles, and has over fifteen years of real world theater, film and major network television acting and audition experience.
