DADDY LONG LEGS “This season’s must-see show!”

DADDY LONG LEGS “This season’s must-see show!”

“Samantha McHenry stars as Jerusha Abbott. Actors are seldom as perfect for a role as McHenry is for this one. She inhabits Jerusha like we all inhabit our favorite article of clothing. She wears her comfortably, believably, and is so genuine in her approach it’s as if the role was written with her in mind. McHenry checks through the emotional highs and lows of this character so convincingly she has the audience on the edge of their seats. McHenry’s brilliant performance is…quite special.”

THE NANCE (November 2-18). Kansas City premiere! New York City’s Mayor LaGuardia wants to clean up the city before the 1937 World’s Fair, and his biggest target is burlesque.

What happens when our nance is gay…and has fallen in love?

Directed by Michael Grayman-Parkhurst and Nicole Marie Green

Starring Andy Perkins, Katie Gilchrist, Timothy Michael Houston, Ashley Personett, R. …

What can you do with a mostly bare stage, two pianos, and a small group of talented performers? According to Spinning Tree Theatre’s production of FINIAN’S RAINBOW, you can tell a magical story that clearly demonstrates the beauty of diversity.

This cast is incredible. Not only are they immensely talented, but they also bring a perfect blend of passion and energy to the stage. On top of that, they are all very different; representing a wide range of ages and …
