Announcing "Moonglow" Cast



Back row: Gary Barclay, Rikki Reid, Lora Ressler
Front row: Kiel Kellow, Bill Pickney, Carly Persons, Sue Wilson

 We are excited to announce, along with sponsor Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, the cast of the upcoming heartwarming comedy “Moonglow”, written by Kim Carney, and directed by Ann Harper.

“Moonglow” follows Maxine, a feisty, bitter Alzheimer's victim who doesn't want to move into a nursing facility. But when she meets Joe, a widower who shares her love for dance, her outlook begins to change. Although the two clash when lucid, their hazy memories overlap, and they begin an affair that rejuvenates and fulfills them. But can these lovers - played simultaneously
by an elderly twosome and a young, vivacious couple - stay together despite their families' wishes and their fading vitality?

The cast of “Moonglow” includes TAPA veterans Carly Persons, Rikki Reid, Lora Ressler, and Sue Wilson. Persons return to the stage after appearing in TAPA’s fall comedy, “Money Matters”, which was directed by Reid. Wilson was most recently seen in “To Kill A Mockingbird”, and while Ressler hasn’t been seen on the TAPA stage in awhile, she’s delighted to return. Making their stage debut is Kiel Kellow, Gary Barclay, and Bill Pinckney.

This sweet and funny show opens May 4th with a Gala celebration and runs through May 20th. Friday & Saturday shows begin at 7:00 pm with Sunday matinees starting at 2:00 pm on March May 6th & 20th.  Tickets are $15/person and available at Diamond Art Jewelers, 503-842-7940.
