The Actors' NET of Bucks County production of The Man Who Bought a Country, slated to open Aug. 17, has been pushed back a week, it was announced by NET Co-Founder and General Manager Joe Doyle. It will now open August 23rd.

Doyle, who wrote the book, music and lyrics for the musical about the life and times of Founding Father Robert Morris – for whom the Borough of Morrisville is named – said one of his lead performers had to withdraw from the show due to “personal reasons” just days before the scheduled opening. The role has been recast and requires sufficient rehearsal time for the new actress.

“While I am sad to announce Kyla Mostello Donnelly withdrew from the costarring role of Mary Morris,” Doyle said, “I’m happy to report Allison Deratzian of North Wales is stepping into the role. We expect the transition to be seamless and the show will be ready to open for a five-performance run August 23 through 26 as part of the Morrisville Business Association-sponsored Revolutionary Weekend.

The musical also costars Steve Lobis of Morrisville as Robert Morris Tom Orr of Ewing, NJ as General Washington, Nicholas Pecht of Hamilton, New Jersey as Benjamin Franklin, James Petro of Hamilton as the Marquis de Lafayette and playwright Doyle as John Adams. NET Artistic Director Cheryl Doyle directs the cast of more than 30.

Show times for The Man Who Bought a Country are Thursday, August 23 – Saturday, August 25 at 7:30 p.m., with an additional 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, August 25 and the final performance Sunday, August 26 at 6 p.m. All seats during the week’s run are priced at $20 and can be reserved by calling the Revolutionary Weekend phone line at 1-866-REV-WKND.
