Cast Announced for STONE SOUP at Stages Theatre Company

Stages Theatre Company (STC) presents Stone Soup, directed by Melanie Salmon-Peterson. This original musical adaptation based on the classic folktale, is written by Jeannine Coulombe, with music composed by Broadway's Michael Gruber.

Stages Theatre Company brings this story to life in a very unique way. Stone Soup is a charming story reminding us all that community is built one ingredient at time, and sometimes it takes a stranger to remind us what friendship is all about. As the outsiders start to make soup out of stones, each of the locals discovers they have something special to contribute to the ever-growing communal meal. During the show, as the table grows, the characters will be collecting food from the audience members as part of a community food drive, in partnership with ICA Food Shelf. We will be collecting non-perishable food items for our community during the performance. Monetary donations will also be collected at the Box Office, during regular Box Office hours.

In this brand new original musical, audiences learn if there isn't enough room at the table, it's time to build a bigger table. A little bit from everyone makes for a whole lot for all.

The complete local cast is as follows: Akinbemi Hernádez Abreu (Novus), Celia Birgy (Pinter), Taylor Breimhorst (Lector), Eli Cambridge (Nati), Lucy Daniels (Layers), Lynnea Doublette (Prind), Hailey Felt (Apuri), Clea Gaïtas Sur (Torun), Reginald D. Haney (Antigo), Katie Johnson (Wheels), Avaial Keeley (Joker), Sayer Keely (Decks), Hannah Paulsen (Chapeau), Bruce Rowan (Jidu), Lucas Schutz (Axel), Giada Strom (Jovana), and Tiahna Wolfe-Shields (Trucks).
