Following virtual auditions on Nov. 22, director Kathy Hyland announced the cast for our next show, Rest Assured by Donald Payton. Thank you to everyone who auditioned!

Congratulations to Sharifa Andrews (Mildred), Hope Bailey (Miss Akers), Lily Billups (Jessica Morlock), Allyson Brickner (Martha Lanconi), Christian Hall (Mr. Morlock), Briana Harger (Mary Morlock), Lynn Hull (Mrs. Morlock), Jeff Kemeter (Dr. Brown), Dan Kuhlman (Joe Lanconi), Kenneth Perdue (Luigi Lanconi), Heather Schultz (Lucifer), Kyle Smith (George Plew), & Gail Stewart (Mrs. Schmaltz).

In this Donald Payton comedy, Mary and Joe fall in love, but they don't expect their union to cause a feud between their fathers that spills over into the afterlife! Her father says this marriage will only happen over his dead body! His father says if Mary and Joe don't get married, it'll be over his. When one father dies, the matter seems settled; that is, until the haunting begins and the hilarity ensues.

Rest Assured is slated to open February 5, 2021, and run through February 21, with shows scheduled Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m, and Sundays at 2 p.m. Ticket prices are $17 for adults, $15 for seniors & students.
