Everyman falls for a free-spirited bartender: Prelude to a Kiss @ MLP, Shreveport, Feb 10 - 13
This fast paced production, says Luke Eddy, follows a whirlwind romance through a young couple’s meeting, wedding and a bizarre twist of fate that tests the newly minted vows of their marriage… and their sanity.
At the center of this grown-up fairy tale is the likable everyman, Peter,
played by Josh Rabalais. Peter shares the details of how he comes to fall in love with a free spirited bartender named Rita, played by Emily Slazer, and how an Old Man, played by Centenary professor Dr. David Bieler, turns the couple’s world inside-out. Along the way we meet Peter’s kooky, suburban in-laws, portrayed by Donnovan Roe and Lauren Morrison; his flamboyant best friend Taylor, played by Barry James Acosta; Marion Paton and Meghan Horan as Rita’s delightfully off-beat wedding guests Uncle Fred and Aunt Dorothy; Sandy Rather as the Minister; Natasha Sebeyran plays the Old Man’s daughter, Leah, and Erika Lunsford is Rita’s co-worker, Tammy.
Co-directed by Centenary College seniors Destin Bass and Scott Gibbs, Prelude To A Kiss is being staged in a black-box configuration to create an intimate environment for the play.
The show will open Feb 10th and run for one weekend only with performances Feb 10th, 11th and 12th at 8:00pm and close Feb 13th at 2:00pm. Standard ticket prices are $15 for
adults, $12 for seniors and military, $10 for children under 12.
Tickets: 869 5242.
