River City Repertory Theater's Bob Busieck, Patric McWilliams: Little Foxes to open June 29 at the Strand Theater
Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes is considered one of the few true classics of the American theatre, says River City Rep founder Patric McWilliams. The drama will be the premiere production of River City Repertory Theatre, Shreveport’s first professional theatre company fully sanctioned by Actors’ Equity, the national union for theatre professionals.
Foxes is one of numerous memorable plays by Lillian Hellman. According to rivercityrep.org, she was born in New Orleans and her writing displays a cutting knowledge of the South. Other Hellman plays include Toys in the Attic and the Children's Hour.
Foxes - featuring actors from Los Angeles and Phoenix - will open Thursday, June 29th, at The Strand Theatre in downtown Shreveport. The performance schedule:
June 29, 7:30 pm
June 30, 7:30 pm
July 01, 7:30 pm
July 02, 2:00 pm
$25.00 for Adults
$20.00 for Seniors and Students 18 and under.
Reservations may be made by calling The Strand box office at 318-226-8555.
