Starlight Theatre has announced casting for the fourth show of the 16-17 Starlight Indoors series, FIRST DATE.
Directed by Caroline Gibel, the production features Lauren Braton (Casey), Shea Coffman (Aaron), Francisco Javier Villegas, Andrew Schmidt, and April Strelinger.
“I am so fortunate to make my Kansas City directorial debut working with these five incredibly talented performers, several of whom will be familiar to local audiences,” Gibel said.
“We wanted to create something that captured all the joy, pain, honesty, comedy and heartbreak of the dreaded first date,” the show’s creative trio of Austin Winsberg, Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner explained in a published interview. “We believe the feelings Aaron and Casey experience during the date are universal. All of us are looking for love and acceptance and constantly searching for ‘The One’!”
FIRST DATE runs February 3rd-26th. Tickets range from $36 to $56. For more information visit kcstarlight.com.
