Second Generation Theatre Presents Regional Premiere of THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA

Second Generation Theatre presents the regional premiere of "THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA" at the Lancaster Opera House June 2-18th.

Set in 1953, "THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA" follows Margaret and Clara Johnson as they vacation in Florence, Italy. When a gust of wind blows Clara's hat right into the hands of a young Italian gentleman, neither age nor language nor familial disapproval can stop their whirlwind love affair. As Clara and Fabrizio fall into each others' arms, Margaret must grapple with the question of whether to disclose Clara's devastating secret to Fabrizio's warm, passionate Italian family.

"PIAZZA is such a beautiful show- it speaks to everyone on the most basic level of familial relationships- mothers, daughters, fathers and sons." said Kelly Copps, Second Generation Theatre's Artistic Director. The show will close the company's two season run at the Lancaster Opera House as they now prepare for a move to their own permanent home at the Shea's Seneca Theatre in South Buffalo.

THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA is directed by Loraine O'Donnell with music direction by Allan Paglia. The production stars Debbie Pappas Sham (Margaret), Kelly Copps (Clara), Steve Jakiel (Roy), Matt Witten (Signor Naccarelli), Katy Miner (Signora Naccarelli), Marc Sacco (Giuseppe), Rebecca Runge (France), Leah Berst, Christopher Andreana, Lucas DeNies, and introducing Anthony Lazzaro (Fabrizio)
