Tacoma Little Theatre has announced that Kent Phillips as one of the cast members for "Chapter Two." Phillips is a familiar face and voice to anyone from the Pacific Northwest. He's been the host of "The Kent and Alan Morning Show" on STAR 101.5 for the past 26 years, and is regularly seen on KOMO-TV.
Phillips is your classic over-achiever, in addition to his on-air responsibilities, he runs the Bellevue Civic Theatre, consults radio stations throughout the country and has various "business interests" that we just don't ask about.
"Chapter Two" will be directed by Alyson Soma, and brings together an A-list of talent from the Pacific Northwest for its four-person cast: Phillips, Brynne Garman, Robert Alan Barnett, and Holly Rose.
The Neil Simon play tells the story of writer George Schneider, a recent widower, who is encouraged by his younger brother Leo to start dating again. But this sends George into even more of a depression after a series of bad matches. Then Leo comes up with Jennie Malone and she’s a keeper. Still, it’s a bumpy trip on the road to Dreamland for these not-so-young lovers. But George and Jennie stumble on, overcoming both their hesitation on the rebound and emotional neediness.
Chapter Two will run Friday, March 14, 2014 until Sunday, March 30, 2014. Friday and Saturday showings are at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
Tickets are $22.00-$15.00 and may be purchased online at www.tacomalittletheatre.com, or by calling (253) 272-2281.
