Comedy-dance-song from River City Rep, Shreveport: Stepping Out opens Tues, Feb 19, 7:30 pm, Scottish Rite Temple

Nine women and one man in a dance studio, inhibitions amok, are the basis for the comedy called Stepping Out. It is the season opener for River City Repertory Theater. Patric Williams, artistic manager of the Actor's Equity-sanctioned company, is director.

Seva May plays Mavis, the dance teacher. Her class is comprised of some of the area’s most admired actors: Sherry Bouche, Janin Pou, Jodie Glorioso, Bonnie Gillen, Charity Schubert, Pat Maxey, Angelique Feaster and Jenni Loer. Peggy Byers plays Mrs. Fraser, the cantankerous rehearsal pianist. Bouche and Byers are Equity actors.

“STEPPING OUT” opens Tues, Feb 19 at 7:30 p.m. with additional performances February 20,21,22,23 at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee on Feb 24 at 3 p.m.

McWilliams said this week,"Our weekend shows are doing great business but we're trying to get Shreveport audiences attuned to a different performance schedule - meaning earlier in a week."

Performances will be at the Scottish Rite Temple, 725 Cotton Street in downtown Shreveport. Tickets are priced at $35.00 for the center orchestra and center upper tier and $25.00 for the side upper tiers.
