Adirondack Theatre Festival has announced the premiere of Calling All Kates, which is set to run June 14 – 22, 2019 at the Charles R. Wood Theater in Downtown Glens Falls. A leading professional theatre in the Capital Region, ATF is dedicated to new plays and musicals. The season runs June 14 – August 9, 2019 with all performances at the Wood Theater.
Calling All Kates was featured in ATF’s 2018 season as a developmental reading, and was one of the most well-attended readings in the theatre’s history.
The romantic comedy musical is based on the true story about a young man (Marc) who plans a honeymoon around the world only to have his fiancé break up with him, leaving him with non-transferrable and non-refundable plane tickets. Marc does a social media search to find someone with the exact same name as his ex to travel the globe with him.
Calling All Kates stars Zoe Jensen (Off-Broadway: We are the Tigers), Josh Israel (ATF: Front Page Flo), David Rowen (Off-Broadway: Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds), Mac Myles, and Hannah Berggren. Designers include Shane Cinal (Scenic), Jolene Richardson (Costume), Jeff Small (Lighting), Brandon Reed (Sound) and music direction by Mark Christine. Choreographer Nathan Mittleman returns to ATF after working on Front Page Flo during ATF’s 24th season.
The writers, Emily Goodson and Jeremy Schonfeld return to the Adirondack Festival after collaborating on the musical Spun during ATF’s 21st season. In addition, the two also collaborated on the musical Greta with Director Chad Rabinovitz.
Tickets are $34-45 and are available at the Wood Theater Box Office, online or by calling (518) 480-4878. Many performances sell out, so ATF encourages individuals to purchase tickets in advance.
Performances are at 7:30 pm Friday June 14, 15, and 18 – 22, along with a 2 pm matinee performance Wednesday June 19.
