Rover Dramawerks Presents SMOKE & MIRRORS
Rover Dramawerks continues their 18th Season with the comedy thriller Smoke & Mirrors by Will Osborne and Anthony Herrera. Performances will be at Rover's theatre in Plano, located in Ruisseau Village at 221 W. Parker Rd, Suite 580, at the northwest corner of Parker and 75. Performances run May 10-26 on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.
Power hungry film producer-director Hamilton Orr (played by Kenneth Fulenwider) has lured his timid screenwriter Clark (Chuck Moore) into a scheme to get rid of Derek Coburn (Ben Scheer), the insufferable star of their multi-million dollar movie. And what role does Hamilton's wife Barbara (Laura Merchant) play in all this? No one on this isolated island is what they appear to be, and twists and turns abound as the talkative local sheriff (played by Steve Roberts) unearths one surprise after another.
Rover Executive Artistic Director Carol M. Rice serves as director, with Cecily Warford as stage manager. Set design is by Rustin Rolin, lighting design is by Catherine M. Luster, and sound design is by Jason Rice. Sakura Brunette provides costume design, with props designed by Sara R. Jones. Fight choreography is by Joseph Taylor II.
Thursday, May 10 is Preview Night, with all seats $10.00 in advance online or "pay-what-you-can" at the door. Following the show on Friday, May 11, Rover will host their First Friday INSIDERS reception, where patrons can meet the cast, director, and designers.
