Kitchen Theatre Company's second show of the 2016/2017 season isPrecious Nonsense by Rachel Lampert directed by Sara Lampert Hoover, on stageOctober 16- November 8.

Kitchen Theatre Company's outstanding cast for Precious Nonsense includes Broadway veteran Lydia Gaston* (Angelina), original Precious Nonsense cast member Eric Brooks* (RDC Carter), KTC favorite Emily Jackson, and five other New York City-based actor/singers making their Kitchen Theatre Company debuts:

It's 1939, and the Depression has reduced the Carter Family Savoyard from a thriving theatrical company to a troupe of four singers. When a theater manager insists that they perform a full version of Pirates of Penzance, anyone and everyone is recruited to make it happen. Precious Nonsense is a backstage/onstage, tour de force for seven players, packed with mistaken identities, romantic entanglements on the boards and in the dressing rooms and a do-or-die determination that gender-bending role-playing. Fun for the whole family. (Ages 7+)

The creative team includes: Sarah Frank (Set Designer), Erik Herskowitz (Lighting Design), Lisa Boquist (Costume Design), Thomas Conroy (Music Director), Jen Schilansky (Stage Manager) and returning director Sara Lampert Hoover, who was at the helm of the play's world premiere in 2004.

Precious Nonsense has the co-producing sponsorship of Tompkins Trust Companyand sponsorship of Cornell University Recruitment and Employment Center, Big Red Bullet and the media sponsorship of Lansing Star Online.
