Casting Announced For The New Colony's SMALL WORLD
The New Colony, under the new artistic leadership of Fin Coe* and Stephanie Shum*, is pleased to announce casting for its world premiere of SMALL WORLD, a twisted comedy in the happiest place on earth, co-written by Jillian Leff and Joe Lino and directed by Andrew Hobgood*.
SMALL WORLD will play March 27 - May 4, 2019 at TNC's resident home, The Den Theatre's Upstairs Main Stage, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. Tickets go on sale Monday, February 25, 2019 at www.thenewcolony.org. The press opening is Monday, April 1 at 7:30 pm.
It's the end of the world...maybe? There's no way to confirm for three cast members trapped inside their attraction at the happiest place on earth. The music won't stop, there's a body in the moat and one of the group is impaled under a smiling animatronic. Can they force their way off the ride? And what waits for them on the other side? It's a world of hopes, it's a world of fears. It's a small world, after all.
Comments Co-Artistic Director Fin Coe, "We're getting back to our roots with Small World, a show that is getting the full New Colony Process; our Ensemble fell vocally in love with the concept, we greenlit it, and we've hit the ground sprinting - working with the playwrights to generate and polish it for this season. It's a gonzo workplace dark comedy gem, with all our signature weird humor and wild action."
The production team for SMALL WORLD includes: Sotirios Livaditis (scenic design), Uriel Gomez (costume design), John Kelly (lighting design), Erik Siegling (sound design), Jennifer Wernau (props design), Zack Meyer (violence design), Zoe Benditt (dramaturg), Megan Johns* and Zach Weinberg (assistant directors), Doran Konja (script supervisor), Lila Gilbert (production manager), Evan Sposato (technical director), Monica Brown* (stage manager) and Cedar Larson (assistant stage manager).
