“I think I’m looking forward most to seeing a lot of the people on stage for this production making their Niles North Theatre debut. It’s really cool that we have new faces in the show and working with all of them was phenomenal. A bit stressful, but they caught on very quickly,” said Simon Gebremedin, actor and assistant director of the production.

This exciting performance features Bryanna Plaisir as Nessa, Anaje Silva as Hannah, Nelson Mafany as Rich, Martin Wiviott as Joe, Rachel Kaufman as Patty Ann, Uche Nwansi as Lucy, Simon Gebremedhin as Rex, Andrew Lipin as Mr. Donovan and Kate Ecker as Mrs. Donovan.

There will be a community performance at 10 a.m. and also performances at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. that night. This show is one of their few performances that is FREE to all!
