Theatre Sewanee presents “Ring Round the Moon” Nov. 14-16

Tennessee Williams Center

Sat, November 16, 2013 - 7:30 pm

“Ring Round the Moon” is a playful romp, a charade with music. It features plots and counterplots involving ballet dancers, butlers, millionaires, and a multitude of other charming intriguers. A frivolous comedy—pure fun.

Heading the large cast is Oliver Crawford as twin brothers Hugo and Frederic. He is joined by Pagie Wilson as an innocent young ballet dancer and Sarah Weldon as her overbearing, brassy mother, along with Charlotte LaNasa as a spoiled millionaire and Hyatt Pyle as an eccentric patron of the arts.

Elise Anderson will appear as an empty-headed mistress of the millionaire, played by Peter Smith, who has been carrying on a not-so-secret affair with her lover’s secretary, played by Cody Snead.

Karen Pelfrey Smith is the dowager aunt of the twins, with Megan Quick as her faded companion and caregiver, and Jack Russell as a crumbling butler aided by Audrey Tchoukova and Alex Linton as bumbling footmen.

“Ring Round the Moon” is directed by Peter Smith, assisted by Beckett Scott. Scenery and lighting are designed by Dan Backlund and costumes designed by Josie Guevara-Torres. Courtney World is the choreographer with stage management by Ruth Guerra and technical direction by John Marshall, assisted by Samantha Gribben.

Admission is FREE and reservations (recommended) can be made by e-mailing
