Rover to Present Youth Production OUT OF THE FRYING PAN
Rover Dramawerks is pleased to present its second youth production of 2017, the classic comedy Out of the Frying Pan by Francis Swann. 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 are just one weekend, August 3-5, 2017 on Thursday and Friday at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.
A group of would-be actors share an apartment above that of a Broadway producer who is casting a show. When he comes upstairs to borrow a cup of flour, the kids aren't going to let him leave until he sees their work, but their performance of a murder mystery is so realistic that the cops show up, with hilarious results!
The talented ensemble cast is made up of youth actors, ages 10 to 18: Madi Brady, Shelby Breda, Carrie Bronsky, Savannah Fuller, Malina Funes-Kendrick, Ileana Rayne Garnand, Blake Jackson, Julia Le, Amelie Lopez, Coleman Shickman, Miles Shickman, and Jimmy Teeling.
Lindsey Humphries serves as director, with Elizabeth Serafin as stage manager. Set and lighting design are by Maxim Overton with sound by Chris Berthelot. Costume design is by Sakura Brunette, with props designed by Kacee Cochrum.
Ticket prices for Out of the Frying Pan are $14.00 for adults and $12.00 for students and seniors. Group rates are also available. Tickets may be ordered online at www.roverdramawerks.com, and season punch cards and season samplers are still on sale for Rover's 17th Season.
