The Brooklyn Community Theatre production of “The Alibis” is slated for April 29 – 30 in the comfortable 225-seat Brooklyn Opera House.
Written by Jonathan Dorf, Tyler Dwiggins, Kathryn Funkhouser, Patrick Greene, Mora V. Harris, Carrie McCrossen, Ian McWethy, and Jason Pizzarello, “The Alibis” features a cast of 22 local actors and actresses who will keep you on the edge of your seat while you try to dig through all the alibis and figure out who done it.
Directed by Josh Gerard, the play centers around eccentric billionaire J. Leslie Arlington who is murdered, and a clueless detective who finds the suspects are all reluctant to admit their alibis . . . because they were all committing other ridiculous crimes at the time. You never know what's coming next when your suspects include disgruntled chefs, teen detectives, and vengeful divas, but one thing's for certain: Every alibi is absolutely absurd.
Cast List in order of appearance - Ryan Emerson, Tristan Taylor, Molly Clayton, Alli McCammant, William Manatt, Travis Williams, Rob Hanlon, Heather Ochs, Jeff Britts, Rachel Lakose, Traci Williams, Isaiah Williams, Lorelai Gerard, Harrison Hershey, Emily Britts, Kaylin Hatfield, Abby Smith, Addi Day, Jamin Manatt, Alaina Holmes, Adelyn McDonald, Lexi Williams.
The backstage crew includes: Props/Costumes – Kim Hawkins, Gracie Shook and Raven Hawkins; Sound – Whit Gerard; and Lights – Shadlee Hazelwood
“I have never laughed so hard during rehearsals,” said director Gerard. “This cast is dedicated to putting on a funny and fantastic performance that is also family friendly and suitable for all ages.”
The 2.5 hour performance with intermission is sponsored by The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.
Showtimes are April 29 at 7 p.m., and April 30 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door and can be purchased online at https://www.brooklynoperahouse.com/events.
