Morris Theatre Guild has announced the cast for its next show, “Escanaba in Da Moonlight,” by Jeff Daniels, produced through Dramatist Play Service. The director is Sue Burich with Christine Johnson as assistant director. The cast includes Joe Baima (playing Albert Soady, the father of two sons) and Gary Talsky and Matt Pasternak (playing Reuben and younger brother Remar.)
When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp, 35-year-old Reuben brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to tag a buck.
In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, “Escanaba in Da Moonlight” spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror and heart, as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.
Joining the Soady family are cast members Bill Gillespie, Jim Welch and Christine Johnson to complete the story.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. March 6, 7, 13 and 14; and at 2:30 p.m. March 8 and 15. Tickets are available online at morristheatreguild.org or by calling 815-942-1966.
