Sharon Playhouse Sets Star-Studded Casts for 2017 Summer Season

Sharon Playhouse Sets Star-Studded Casts for 2017 Summer Season

Sharon Playhouse has announced complete casting for its 2017 Season. The season kicks off with MINOR CHARACTER: SIX TRANSLATIONS OF UNCLE VANYA, created by New Saloon (Morgan Green, Madeline Wise, and Milo Cramer), followed by FAR AWAY by Caryl Churchill (Love and Information). The season will conclude with a new, intimate chamber production of Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN. In a shift that begins this season, Morgan Green (William Shakespeare's Mom) will direct all three productions, showcasing the talents and range of the rising director.

MINOR CHARACTER: SIX TRANSLATIONS OF UNCLE VANYA, an adaptation of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, is an irreverent mash up of six different English-language translations - from the dusty 1916 edition to Google Translate's whack results. A kaleidoscopic amplification of Chekhov's tragic comedy, each character is interpreted by multiple actors and through multiple translations in an athletic attempt to say one true thing. Created by New Saloon (Brooklyn-based theatre company made up of Morgan Green, Madeline Wise, and Milo Cramer), directed by Morgan Green, and featuring dramaturgy by Elliot B. Quick, MINOR CHARACTER will run in Sharon Playhouse's Bok Gallery from June 9 through June 25, 2017.

MINOR CHARACTER will feature performances from Milo Cramer, Jamal Crowelle, FerNando Gonzalez, David Greenspan, Kennedy Kanagawa, Caitlin Morris, Anne Troup and Madeline Wise.

In FAR AWAY, Caryl Churchill's fable about a world where the line has disappeared between the normal and the fantastic, beauty and horror, plain talk and poetry, Joan has just seen something she shouldn't have. Far from home, she hears screams in the night. She's uncovered a terrible secret that will change the course of her life. Churchill confronts our deepest fears, depicting a chilling world where everyone is at war, and not even the birds in the trees or the river below can be trusted. Directed by Morgan Green, FAR AWAY will run in the Bok Gallery from July 7 through July 23, 2017.

The cast of FAR AWAY will include Mia Katigbak, Gabriel Levey, MadeLynn Peterson and Madeline Wise.

The season will conclude with THE MUSIC MAN, written by Meredith Willson, in celebration of the musical's 60th anniversary as an American Classic. Under the direction of Morgan Green, Sharon Playhouse invites you to experience the story of a lovable conman who warms his way into the heart of small town American like you've never seen it. THE MUSIC MAN will run on the Sharon Playhouse Mainstage from August 4 through August 20, 2017.

THE MUSIC MAN will feature Robert Bannon, Jennie Boone, Arnie Burton, Myles Crain, Milo Cramer, Robert Johanson, Annie McNamara, Ethan Dubin, Rachel Eddy, Colin Gallaher, Tyler Gallaher, Lorelei Gnerre, Susan Hackel, Denise Johnson, Matthew Krob, Ben Langhorst, Helen Laser, Katelin Jeanette Lopes, Megan O'callaghan, Larry Owens, Jacob Pressley, Becca Schneider, Elizabeth Thomas, Daniel Walstad and Jessie Weil

Performance for the season will be Thursdays at 7pm, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm, and Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets, priced at $20-47, are available by calling the Sharon Playhouse box office at (860)-364-7469 or by visiting www.sharonplayhouse.org.

The Sharon Playhouse will for the first time be offering a complimentary shuttle from the Wassaic MetroNorth Train station to the Playhouse. Reservations required at time of ticket purchase.

With new management this season in Artistic Director Johnson Henshaw and Managing Director George Quick, the Sharon Playhouse is focused on emerging directors, bringing the best and brightest new talent from The New York to Sharon, CT to create innovative and exciting theatre on their intimate stages.
