Isadoora Announces Cast for Striking 12
Isadoora Theatre Company is thrilled to announce the cast for its upcoming production of Striking 12, music by Valerie Vigoda & Brendan Milburn, book by Rachel Sheinkin. Directed by Janet Anderson, the musical will play February 9-12 and 16-19 at Juniper Hall at Birch Creek Music Performance Center. Thursday through Saturday performances will be at 7:30pm with Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.
The cast for Striking 12 features the talents of Ann Birnschein, Lauren Gilmore, Andy Hall, Hervy Hodges, Hans Ribbens, and Anne St. Henry. All are veterans of Isadoora productions; most recently, Ribbens appeared in Isadoora’s Eclipse of the Soul (October 2011) and Hall appeared in the company’s Waiting for Lefty (May 2011). The other four last appeared in an Isadoora production in the company’s 2009 musical, She Loves Me. The band will include Janet Anderson, Annie Barles, Michael Bleck, Craig McClelland, and Bruce Newbern.
Striking 12 is the story of a grumpy guy who resolves NOT to celebrate New Year’s Eve. His plans are interrupted by a door-to-door saleswoman and accompanying inspiration to read Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Match Girl. When he finds the story to have a less-than-happy ending, he is moved to make someone else’s holiday, which in turn makes his own.
Advance tickets for Striking 12 are available for reservation by calling Isadoora Theatre Company at 920.493.DOOR (3667). Tickets are $17 for adults and $14 for students. For more information, visit Isadoora’s facebook page or their website at www.isadoora.com.
