The Artistic Home has its cast and staff for the summer production of David Ives’ comedy in verse, THE SCHOOL FOR LIES, running June 28th – August 13th and directed by Artistic Director Kathy Scambiatterra. “I, personally, know what a joy it is to speak Mr. Ives’ text and fling your body and soul into his world. So, I knew that our ensemble would experience joy in working on the piece and we all could use a laugh right now as our country muddles through its own school for lies,” says Scambiatterra.
The cast includes ensemble members Devon Carson, Reid Coker, Brookelyn Hebert, Julian Hester, and Annie Hogan, along with visiting artists Averis I. Anderson, Ted James, Mark Pracht and Todd Wojcik. The design team includes Elyse Balogh (scenic design), Zach Wagner (costume design), Cat Wilson (lighting design), Joseph Cerqua (sound design/original music). Kayla Adams is the assistant director.
The Artistic Home’s theater is located at 1376 W. Grand Avenue. Tickets are now on sale at theartistichome.org.
