Rogue Theater announces the cast of their upcoming show Alabama Bound.
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Director Stuart Champeau, brings to the stage Alabama Bound, written by Charlotte Higgins, monologues from five tenacious women, all living hard lives in Alabama.  Each of the women we meet has a unique point of view, it quickly becomes clear that these women are bound in the sense that they are tied to this place through their history and circumstances.  These memorable women whose voices are seldom heard, but when we take the time to listen, we hear the power, biting humor, tragedy and wisdom they all contain. And, although distinctly Southern, they are dealing with issues that are clearly universal and recognizable to all – aging, health, economic and class. Their stories make for a memorable theater experience.

The first story, 9-1-1, is that of Dixie, (new to the Rogue stage Lori Weir), a raucous, boozy police dispatcher whose long-awaited vacation with her no-good boyfriend is delayed by a desperate call from a child. In the second, Hey, Old Woman, Evelyn, (Lola DeVillers), an elderly nursing home resident, wryly observes life around her until a family secret is unearthed. In No Breathing Room, a housewife, Loretta, (Renee Kujawski), struggles to protect her limited domain from her husband and his tyrannical mother. Disease Dance tells the story of a young beautician, Alice, (Keri Grimsley), who finally realizes her dream of attending a socialite’s elite fund-raiser. And finally, in Unlucky Star, Dominique, (Carrie Counihan), an inmate in the Cheehaw State Prison for Women, tells her heartbreaking story.

Performance dates are July 17-27.  Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30. Sunday matinee at 2:00.  At The Depot PAC, 341 N. 3rd. Ave. Sturgeon Bay.  Tickets $15, available by calling 920-818-0816 or at Greco Gallery and Avenson Photography downtown Sturgeon Bay.
