Founding director Eric Krebs and artistic director Christopher Scott announced the creation of the new Equity theatre company last fall. The company launches with The Glass Menagerie in May.
Set for a June 5-28 run at the 47th Street Theatre, the cast will feature Becca Ballenger (Steel Magnolias) as Helena, Em Grosland (The Erlkings) as Flute, Sheria Irving (Romeo And Juliet) as Hermia and Jenny Strassburg (Echoes of War) as Titania.
Tamilla Woodard will direct.
The company's mission is to present "accessible, professional productions of theatrical and literary heavyweights that are widely produced and studied in educational settings at affordable ticket prices to help ignite the audience for live theater for the next generation."
