"An Awful Night of Crap," a one-act created by the company members of Hobo Junction Productions, began rehearsals late last night, under the direction of Theatre-Hikes' own Bradley Baker. The play was written in collaboration by Travis Barnhart, Kristi Parker-Barnhart, Ben Hertel, Dan Krall, Josh Zagoren, and I; as head writer and the company's Literary Manager, I was responsible for taking each writer's contribution and weaving it together into one large, messy, hour-long comedy that stayed true to its name while also providing its audience with some unpredictable entertainment.
In addition to Parker-Barnhart, Krall, Zagoren and I, the cast includes Jamie Campbell, Dylan Jost, Richard Paro, Mike Rice, Zach Stinett, Maggie Suma, Chris Waldron, and Tamara White. The production will be stage-managed by Holly McCauley, who collaborated previously with Hobo Junction on our latest full-length production, "In Pursuit."
"An Awful Night of Crap" will premiere at Mary-Arrchie Theater's Abbie Fest XXIV on August 17th, with additional performances potentially taking place on the 18th and 19th, depending on audience reaction.
