Theatre/Sewanee will present “Anton In Show Business,” a comedy by Jane Martin, Oct. 6 -7, and 12-14, at 7:30 p.m., with a Sunday matinee on Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. in the Tennessee Williams Center.
"Anton in Show Business" is a madcap comedy which follows three actresses across the footlights, down the rabbit hole and into a strangely familiar wonderland that looks a lot like the American theatre. In the tradition of great backstage comedies, Anton conveys the joys, pains and absurdities of producing Chekhov’s “The Three Sisters” in Texas.
Kalynn Harrington, Lydia Klaus and Kate Schumaker play the three actresses. They are joined by Marion Givhan, Alena Kochinski, Emily Riedlinger, Sarah Mixon, Will Burton-Edwards, Nick Govindan, Cameron Noel, Jonathan Herring, David Provost, Jack Riordan and Jim Crawford.
Anton In Show Business is directed by Peter Smith, with scenery designed by Elijah Brooks-Davis and Dan Backlund; costumes designed by Jennifer Matthews; and lighting designed by Liam Corley and Backlund. John Marshall is technical director, assisted by Chynna Bradford. Krystal Fowler is production stage manager. Admission is free and reservations are available at eventbrite.com
