CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield Arts Studio Theatre Inc. (CAST) is making final preparations to bring its 2018 season opener to the stage.
The Glorious Ones will be presented Feb. 22-24 and March 1-3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students. ?
Tickets are available online at www.ClearfieldArts.org, at the CAST office Feb. 19-20 and 26-27 from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., and at the box office 30 minutes before each show. Doors will open at 7 p.m. each night.
?Both slapstick and serious, the musical tells how the troupe came to be and how it captured the public’s adoration with its bawdy comedy… before changing artistic fashion altered its way of life.
It follows seven archetypal characters – the charismatic leading man, the sly harlequin, the quack doctor, the old miser, the voluptuous leading lady, the devoted dwarf and the elegant Moon Woman – as they search for immortality and love.
In their search for glory and fame, the characters are thrown out of France by the religious court because of their “lewd” performances.
The leading man, Flaminio, struggles with the court’s decision and how it affects his life as a performer.
Smutty and nutty, yet sentimental and deeply moving, The Glorious Ones has “one hand on the crotch, and one hand on the heart.” This show contains some adult content, and would be rated PG-13.
This production is directed by CAST Artistic Director, Gayle Gearhart, with Stacey Norris serving as assistant director. Pianist is Dana Neeper.
Greg Norris is designing the set, with Steven Kumm designing lighting and special effects. Actors include Lew Duttry, Doug and Illona Fye, Amanda Hertlein, Ethan Shearer, Mason Strouse and Haley Wallace
