Kansas City Actors Theatre has announced the creative team and completed casting for Gardner McKay’s SEA MARKS.
Directed by Jan Rogge, the production features Darren Kennedy and Cinnamon Schultz.
The production team includes Gary Mosby (scenic designer), Elizabeth Sampley (properties designer), Sarah M. Oliver (costumer designer), Shane Rowse (lighting designer), Jonathan Robertson (sound designer), and Kyle Dyck (technical director).
SEA MARKS is Darren Kennedy’s first appearance with Kansas City Actors Theatre and Jan Rogge’s first time directing for the company.
An Irish romantic comedy that is a callback of sorts to the classic romance films of the 40’s and 50’s, SEA MARKS is the story of a fisherman from a remote Irish island who falls in love with a woman he’s seen only once. As he attempts to woo her by mail, she falls in love with his words. As these two people from very different worlds meet and fall in love, they realize they must also reflect on what it is to know who they are and where they belong.
“I’m a sucker for romance, especially by the sea,” says Rogge when speaking of what drew her to the project. “I’m especially thrilled to be directing two exceptional actors, Darren Kennedy and Cinnamon Schultz, who will breathe life into this charming and poetic love story.”
SEA MARKS January 10th – January 28th at Union Station’s H&R Block City Stage. For more information visit kcactors.org.
