Quad C Theatre Announces Cast for "Light Up The Sky"

October 31, 2006 - Quad C Theatre will continue their 2006-2007 season with Light Up The Sky, a delightful comedic classic of the Broadway theatre by Moss Hart. Light Up The Sky revolves around a group of New York theatre-folk who attend the opening of their new play in Boston. The lead actress, the backer, and several others, are in seventh heaven at the prospect of a tremendous success which they hope for in the work of a young unknown writer. Gathered in a hotel room, these people go through their paces with tremendous gusto and many exhibitions of temperament. The opening of the play, which is a very earnest and experimental work, is such as to lead the cast, director and backer to believe it a flop. Instantly they turn against themselves, the production and the author, and savagely proceed to destroy themselves.

"The talent of the students and the dedication and creativity of the faculty and staff make Quad C a stand-out theater program," said Rosemary Andress, director of Light Up The Sky. "Actually, they just make Quad C a stand-out theater!"

The scenic and lighting designs for Light Up The Sky will be created by Craig "Yo" Erickson (Plano), with costume and makeup design by Andrea Throop (McKinney) and sound design by Pierce Purselley (Plano). The stage manager is Brittany Noll (Mesquite).

The ensemble for Light Up The Sky is comprised of student actors from across the Metroplex. These talented actors include David Lyman, Dan Schmoker, Eben Mahan, and David Cuellar from Plano; Preston DeWitt and James Chandler from McKinney; Ryan A. Maffei and Vanessa Bellew from Allen; Sky Williams from Flower Mound; Lindsay Neinast from Arlington; Colleen O'Connor, Anna Gilbert and Fernando Delgado from Frisco; William K. Lanier from Kaufman; Corey Cleary-Stoner from Anna; Aaron Slaughter from Richardson; Brain Kinkade and Matthew Johnson from Lewisville; and Elizabeth Robinson from Mesquite.
