Thanks to all who auditioned for Good People! Many incredibly talented people tried out for roles. We are delighted to announce the cast below:
Margie - Kate LaRiviere
Jean - Maria Stockman
Dottie - Sarah Stone
Kate - Tami Shearer
Mike - Christopher Ross
Stevie - Alex Nicosia
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. An insightful comedy of class and culture, Good People was a Broadway hit (Francis McDormand won a Tony for Best Lead Actress in 2011), darkly funny and surprisingly touching.
*Contains profanity and mature themes.
GOOD PEOPLE is presented by special arrangement
with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
Book by Nina Fason and Stephen Schwartz

The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock. Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife, just to name a few. It's a highly original look at the American landscape that's simply impossible to forget.

Originally presented by Lore Noto at The Sullivan Street Playhouse, New York City.
The Fantasticks is the longest running musical in American history. When it opened in the Sullivan Street Theater in 1960, nobody would have predicted that it would still be playing there in 2002! Its delightful story of romance, comedy, illusion, magic, and the bittersweet lessons of life has proved irresistible to generations of theater goers.
