Ponca Playhouse announces cast for “August: Osage County”

Ponca City Now - May 31, 2018 11:24 am

The Ponca Playhouse has announced most of the cast members for the upcoming production of “August: Osage County.”

The Pulitzer-Prize-winning play features 13 characters, numerous storylines running parallel to one another and enough family dysfunction and drama to fill a season of reality-based television.

The story centers around the Weston clan and an impromptu reunion after the disappearance of its patriarch Beverly.

“The story of this family is pretty universal,” says playwright Tracy Letts. “The dinner scene alone — in the theater, I can tell you that some people are howling with laughter, and other people are in tears crawling under their seats. They find it very upsetting to watch because it hits pretty close to home.”

“August: Osage County” will be presented at Ponca Playhouse at  301 S. First St on July 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, and 29.

The announced cast includes:

Violet – Karen Brown Mason
Barbara – Sam Stuart
Bill – Todd Stuart
Beverly – Eric Bay
Jean – Abriana Suprobo
Karen – Storm Fields
Ivy – Meagan Morrow
Mattie Fae – Paula Love
Little Charles – Blake Brown
Johnna – Tamara Campbell
Steve – Billy Elliott

Charlie and Sheriff Gilbeau have not yet been cast.

The first rehearsal will be at the Playhouse at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 4.

Members of the cast can pick up a script from the Playhouse box office on Thursday, Friday or Monday during office hours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“August: Osage County” is not a part of the regular Playhouse season. Tickets will be sold separately and can be purchased by calling (580) 765-5360 or can be purchased online at https://poncaplayhouse.weebly.com/

“August: Osage County” is written by Oklahoma playwright Tracy Letts and directed by Lance Garrett. It is sponsored by Hugh Pickens in memory of Dr. S. J. Pickens
