Schoolhouse Arts Center Announces The Cast Of NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP

Schoolhouse Arts Center Announces The Cast Of NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEPThe Schoolhouse Arts Center is proud to announce its cast for the spring 2018 production of "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep". This show is written and directed by Jerry Walker and produced by Danny Gay. The play is licensed through Leicester Bay Theatricals. This play took first place in the Northern Maine One Act Play Festival in 1997.

They are called the best four years of our lives...and they are, but that four year trek is also dangerous and confusing. You will find all of the things that young people, especially high school students, need to know, want to ask, get stressed-out about and complain about. Between the familiar items of teen angst and adolescence will come those moments of pleasant memory, deep identity, shocking surprise, and utter devastation, as your onstage 'child' reaches out for comfort, help, direction--approval; wanting to belong to something/someone. The scenes and monologues in this on-target theatrical, will have you laughing one second and crying for ...well, a considerable length of time. The play is about teens and how each action or word spoken by anyone has either a positive or negative effect on someone else, even oneself, and we come to find out that no word or deed is harmless or without consequence. Adults and youth alike, will see themselves in the halls of this school, in the lives of its students; in both the hopes, and the shattered dreams of high-schoolers not so very different from those adults in their lives around them who have walked this path before in a slightly different era but with all the manifestations of expectation, desire, dreams, and despair that haunted them. This is one fine and timeless play.

The show takes place using a sparse set of a school hallway, a swing set, a park bench and streetlamp, a door, and a hospital room.Taking on the roles of 29 females and 24 males are: Emily Eberhart, Diera Abbott, Matthew Cote, Benjamin Abbott, Emily Buddemeyer, Gerald Davis, Camryn Graffius, Taylor Price, Michael McFarland, Josh Macri, Emily Thompson, Brittney Tibbetts, Hannah Macri, Brett Davis, Ashley Mcbreairty, Valerie Sanborn, Zoe Peters, Ben Macri and Cristina Mcbreairty.
