Abilene Community Theatre presents Ripcord

News Release from Abilene Community Theatre



Abilene Community Theatre is proud to present RIPCORD, a dark comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire and directed by Tyler Sparks, as the first production of their 2017-18 season. Performances will be September 21st thru October 1st on ACT’s Main Stage.

In RIPCORD, a sunny room at Bristol Place Senior Living Facility becomes a battleground of wills and more between cantankerous Abby and chipper Marilyn. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.

The cast of RIPCORD includes Karen Reese as Abby Binder, Bobbie Trumbo Byrd as Marilyn Dunne, Brett Pascoe as Scotty, Shea Cheek as Colleen and the Woman in White, Nicolas Gooch as Derek, the Zombie Butler, and the Masked Man, and Adrian Johnson as Benjamin, Lewis, and the Clown. RIPCORD is directed by Madison Middle School theatre teacher Tyler Sparks, who is assisted by Gavyn Hardegree.

RIPCORD will be produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

RIPCORD will be performed on the Main Stage at Abilene Community Theatre (809 Barrow) on Thursday, September 21st thru Saturday, September 23rd, and Friday, September 29th and Saturday, September 30th with performances at 7:30PM, and a matinee performance on Sunday, October 1st at 2PM. Tickets are $15 for general admission, and $13 for seniors, students, and active military. Tickets will go on sale for current season ticket holders on September 11 th, and to the general public on September 18th.
