Newly formed Glitter Bang Productions has announced the cast for Jesse Ray Metcalf’s (VIRGIN.).
Winner of the 2014 Best of Fest at KC Fringe Festival, (VIRGIN.) has been developed into a full-length production to be directed by Metcalf, and will feature Emma Carter as “Mary Sue” along with Ellen Kirk, Melissa Fennewald, Briana Marxen-McCollum, R.H. Wilhoit, Ai Vy Bui, Alisa Lynn, Damian Blake, J. Will Fritz, and Bonnie Griffin.
Conceived in honor of the holy trinity of classic teen movies, “Jawbreaker,” “Clueless,” and “Mean Girls,” (VIRGIN.) is the confession of a young girl bursting at her welded seams to score big in popularity. With a mother hell-bent on God-fearing normalcy, a flaccid father who will bend to her every whim, the fault is not on Mary Sue for what she had to do. At the cost of her friendships, her virginity, her innocence, Mary Sue has been chosen by God. Maybe the conception wasn’t so immaculate, but no one important knows that! Until now…
(VIRGIN.) will run September 7th – September 15th at SqueezeBox Theatre, 1519 Oak Street, Kansas City, Missouri. Tickets are $20.
