Theatre Educator Co-Stars in Mad Horse Theatre Performance
When our theatre staff are not working with child actors, repairing costumes, or setting stage and lights here at the Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine, they are often participating in the regional theatre community themselves. Theatre Educator Allison McCall co-stars in a performance that opens tonight at Mad Horse Theatre Company in South Portland. From September 26-October 13 the company will be performing Radiant Vermin by Philip Ridley. Radiant Vermin (directed by Jake Cote) has been described as a dark, provocative, and fast-paced satire about the housing market that addresses the question: how far would any of us go to get our dream home?
Allison said, “At Mad Horse, I'm primarily an actor but I also stage manage, house manage, and run our social media. I'm very excited about bringing this play to Portland; it's so topical to the gentrification and homeless displacement that is happening, while not being too "on the nose" stylistically with the delivery. It's a three-person cast, primarily featuring myself and Joe Bearor. It's funny and quirky and dark, and I think it will leave audiences surprised and thinking in ways they don't expect.
Break a leg, Allison, and we appreciate your stage expertise!
