Our 2016 Season-The Quick Change Room
Ashfield Community Theater is pleased to present The Quick Change Room, a raucous backstage comedy by Nagle Jackson. Subtitled "Scenes from a Revolution, the play tells the fictional account of a Russian theater troupe coping with the changes brought on by the collapse of the Soviet Union. Though the setting is Russia, it could well take place anywhere in the dog-eat-dog, bottom-line-obsessed world of theater at the mercy of fickle audiences and uncertain finances.
The performance is directed by Chris Rohmann. Rose Carragher is the Stage Manager. The Producer is Jackie Walsh. Costumes are by Marcine Appel, Michael Fitzgerald designed the set, Chip Roughton designed the sound, and Stefan Topolski designed the lighting.
In the cast are: William Spademan, Sue Davis, Caroline Ludvik-Johnson, Philip Isermann, JazBlain, Nellie Boyd-Owens, David Knowles, Sue Tracy, Kip Fonsh, and Barbara Friend.
Performances are May 27 & 28 and June 3 & 4 at 7:00. There is a matinee performance at 2:00 on Sunday, May 29. All performances are at the Ashfield Town Hall on Main Street (Rte 116), right in the center of Ashfield. The Town Hall is wheelchair and walker accessible; parking is free on the street.
This production is supported in part by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Commission through Local Cultural Council grants.
For twenty years the Ashfield Community Theater has produced high quality plays performed by regional actors and enjoyed by thousands of audience members from all over southern New England.
