Below, Dallas, Jessica, Carling, Quentin, Summer, Chris, Jenelle, Dave, Colleen and Chelsea during the first rehearsals. Right away it was apparent that this group of actors had some major chemistry going on! And so, fabulous directors that we are, we encouraged them to improvise and some of the hilarious results have become a part of the script!


Dallas, Quentin and Summer

Marilyn and Aimée talk with Chelsea Braun’s parents after her audition. Chelsea, Jessica and Marilyn shared the stage in 2014 when they appeared in The Process which garnered good reviews in The Buffalo News and Buffalo Rising.


Chris Wylie’s improvisations had us all laughing throughout this rehearsal!
