Both shows were recently cast - here's the lineup of actors, beginning with the announcement by my pal Bil Neal:
It's my tremendous pleasure to announce the cast for Crimes of the Heart at ARTS.Now it's over to Brian Cook, who sent out this announcement:
I was impressed by the talent of all who auditioned, and encourage all of the folks whose names aren't on the following list to keep coming back. I'd love to see you all on our stage at some point, and wish I could've done it this time.
Terri Tagmeyer will be our CHICK
Amy Browning will be our LENNY
Amy Knell Carlson will be our MEG
Jamie Mathis will be our BABE
Jason R. Kretzer will be our DOC
Dylan Clark will be our Barnette
I'm also delighted to announce that our Stage Manager will be Leann Haines.
Personally I am humbled to have these talented folks commit to this project, and a little overwhelmed by the work load ahead of each of us. I hope you'll each plan on seeing the results of our labor in August.
