CAT Theatre Presents ENCHANTED APRIL, Beg. Tonight
CAT Theatre continues its 50th Anniversary Season with Enchanted April which runs from today, March 21 thru April 5, 2014. Enchanted April was chosen by CAT patrons as the show they would most like to see repeated from CAT's 50-year history. "The Enchanted April" was written by Elizabeth von Arnim and the novel was adapted to the stage by Kane Campbell. The 1991 film version featured Miranda Richardson, Alfred Molina and Joan Plowright.
Director Pat Walker says, "Enchanted April is a story about change and growth through the magic of beauty. The beauty of an Italian villa in April -- sunshine, flowers, sparkling sea -- works its magic on a few world-weary Londoners and leads them to find the beauty in themselves and the beauty -- and joy -- they had lost from their own lives. And who among us can't profit from such magic as this?"
Walker has chosen the following cast:
Lottie Wilton - Donna Marie Miller
Rose Arnott - Emma Louise Mason
Mellersh Wilton - Bob Murphy
Frederick Arnott - Scott Garka
Lady Caroline - Elisabeth Ashby
Mrs. Graves - Toni Cacioppo
Costanza - Susan Gerber
Anthony Wilding - Tyler Simpson
Enchanted April runs from March 21 thru April 5, 2014, with a possible one week extension. Closing out CAT's 50th Anniversary season will be another comedy, Leaving Iowa, which runs from May 23 thru June 7, 2014.
