In light of the recent national tragedy, The Pavilion, Craig Wright's nostalgic drama, will open at Globe Theatre's Cassius Carter Centre Stage on Sept. 20 instead of the previously announced Sept. 15. Globe executive director Craig Noel directs, his 226th helming for the company.
The Pavilion is a place husband and wife Peter and Kari remember from their high school years when they were named "Cutest Senior Couple." Returning to their small Minnesotan hometown for a 20 year reunion party, they find themselves again at the pavilion, looking back on the past, while realizing how far the present is from what they had dreamed for themselves. Wright is also the author of Molly's Delicious and a Christian minister.
The Pavilion features Mark Moses as Peter, Tracy Ellis as Kari and Minneapolis' Stephen D'Ambrose as the Narrator.
Designing the show are Kent Dorsey (lighting), David Ledsinger (sets), Christine Dougherty (costumes) and Paul Peterson (sound). Raul Moncada is the stage manager.
