PerformInk is Chicago's entertainment industry trade publication.
The Actors Gymnasium has announced the cast and design team for “All the Time in the World,” an original circus-theatre production written and directed by Kerry Catlin, with original music by Kevin O’Donnell and circus choreography by Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi.
Part of Actors Gymnasiums Winter Circus, the production will feature David Corlew, Kathleen Hoil, Megan Mallouk, Lindsey Noel Whiting, and members of Actors Gym’s Teen Ensemble.
The creative team includes Sully Ratke, costume designer; Isaac Schoepp, rigging designer; Tracy Walsh, dance choreographer; Kristof Janezic, lighting designer; Catherine Allen, production manager; Jamie Crothers, stage manager; Damian Portz, assistant stage manager; and Griffin DiStasi and Emma Isaacs, production assistants.
“All the Time in the World” tells the story of Trudy, a young girl who lives a hectic life with her very busy family, and who also has an imaginary friend. When Trudy’s imaginary friend is suddenly too busy to play with her and leaves to join the circus, she and her parents enter the circus paracosm to find more time and reunite Trudy and her imaginary friend.
“Every winter for the past ten years I have looked forward to our Winter Circus,” comments Artistic Director Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi. “This collaboration with some of Chicago’s top performers and designers, combined with the talent of our celebrated Teen Ensemble creates a little homegrown magic. It gives our community a moment to come together and celebrate our humanity in a way that only circus and live storytelling can do.”
“All the Time in the World” runs February 16 – March 24 at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St. in Evanston. For more information visit actorsgymnasium.org.
