The American Contemporary Theater Company – CATCO – opens its new season in October with “Escanaba in Love,” a play by actor Jeff Daniels.
There is, of course, a cast of terrific actors bringing the production to life on The Capitol One Theater stage and a cast of characters of a sort behind the scenes, designing sets, lighting and costumes…without whose expertise the show would not go on.
We recently attended a “Dress Parade,” a kind of costume review, and met with some of these talented people to talk about their work.
We talked with Cheryl Ruschau a member of the CATCO Staff and Stage Manager for “Escanaba in Love”; David Atkinson, a freelance artist who is a Lighting Designer for “Escanaba in Love”; Keya Myers-Alkire of the CATCO Staff, Master Electrician/Sound Engineer and Sound Designer for “Escanaba in Love”; Tatjana Longerot a member of the CATCO Staff and the Costume Shop Manager; Stephanie Gerckens a freelance artist and Set Designer for “Escanaba in Love”; Edie Wadkins a freelance artist and the Scenic Artist for “Escanaba in Love”.
CATCO’s “Escanaba in Love” opens October 15 in the Capitol One Theater in the Riffe Center downtown.
