Casting Update Announced For The Contemporary American Theater Festival's A LATE MORNING (IN AMERICA) WITH RONALD REAGAN
The Contemporary American Theater Festival at Shepherd University will produce the world premiere of Michael Weller's A Late Morning (in America) with Ronald Reagan as part of its 2018 season. This play is a result of a collaboration between Weller, director Sam Weisman, and actor Tim Matheson. Initially, Matheson was to originate the role of Ronald Reagan. However, due to an unexpected scheduling conflict, Matheson is no longer able to be a part of the project and the role will be recast.
CATF will share an update on final casting when it becomes available.
