The Brooklyn Opera House has selected the cast for its second community theatre production of their inaugural season, Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some). The performance dates are scheduled from Dec. 3-5th. Rehearsals will begin Nov. 1.
The 2021 cast is as follows: Josh Gerard, Rachel Lakose and Rob Hanlon. All three are from Brooklyn and alums from the BOH’s production of The Odd Couple.
This show was written by Jim FitzGerald, John K. Alvarez, and Michael Carleton, who all performed in the production as themselves in the world premiere at Cape May Stage in Cape May, N.J. on Nov. 27, 2003. Instead of performing Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, these three actors will perform every Christmas story ever told - plus Christmas traditions from around the world.
“These three nailed it during the reading at the audition,'' said Deborah Kennedy, co-director of this upcoming production. “This show is fast, funny and a bit quirky. When you read a show, you start to think of actors that are able to handle the type of humor in the script. These three were perfect for the production and are all wonderful people to work with. They are all fully committed to this production and are willing to give 110 percent - heart and soul.”
This show requires audience participation, so audience members who are up for a bit of adventure are encouraged to sit closer to the stage. For more information, visit www.brooklynoperahouse.com.
