Things My Mother Taught Me E-mail

The Abbey Players Theatre is pleased to announce the cast for the upcoming Fall production of Things My Mother Taught Me by Katherine DeSavino. 

The cast consists of three newcomers to the Abbey Players stage:  Ryan Broussard will play  Gabe with Leigh Lupton and Lisa Harris as his parents, Wyatt and Lydia.  Gale Luquette and Rebecca Songne LeBlanc will play the roles of Carter and Karen, Olivia’s parents;  Lindsay LeBlanc will play Olivia.   And Linda LeBlanc will play the role of the quirky building superintendant, Max.

 

This comedy introduces us to Olivia and Gabe who are moving into their first apartment together. They’ve packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway across the country to start a new life together in Chicago. Their moving day doesn't go exactly as planned though and things become slightly more complicated when all of their parents show up to help! This brand new comedy takes a generational look at relationships and explores how sometimes parents unintentionally pass their best lessons on to their children.  This funny and touching show will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again.

The production opens on November 1, 2013 and will run weekends through Nov 23rd   with matinees on Nov 10th  and 17th at the Abbey Players Theatre. Evening performances will be at 7:30 pm and the matinees will be at 2pm. The play is directed by Shana Ledet Qualls who has directed several Abbey Players productions in the past, including A Christmas Carol, The Gingerbread Lady and Jekyll & Hyde. 

Tickets for the productions will go on sale October 10th and can be purchased either through our Web site or by calling the Abbey Players Theatre at 337-893-2442.

Treasure Island E-mail

"Treasure Island"

During the summer of 2012, the Children's Guild of the Abbey Players put on a chair sell-out version of  "Treasure Island," adapted by Rex Stephenson based on the beloved book by Robert Stevenson,

The spine-tingling adventure about trechery, treasure, and a young man's rite of passage had a cast composed of area children ages 11-17. The enthralling classic tale of Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver, and swashbuckling pirates excited both the young and the young at heart. The show ran from July 27 to August 11.

 

 

 
Rich Is Better E-mail

  Rich Is Better

By Jack Sharkey  
Directed by Mickey Atchetee
  
 

The Abbey Players is proud to announce that their spring production, Rich is Better by Jack Sharkey, will open Saturday May 21 and run Fridays and Saturdays through June 25. The comedy, directed by Mickey Atchetee, has a new face, Brittany DuBois, in the cast along with some veteran actors, Gloria Breaux, Scott Meddows and Judge Byron Hebert. Rehearsals have started and all cast members are excited about the production.

Nona, played by Gloria Breaux, is unaware that her husband Gino, played by Byron Hebert, owns the company where she works in telephone sales. Gino posed as a laborer during their courtship, afraid that Nona might marry him just for his money, and has not yet told her of his deception. When Gino’s secretary Pam, played by Brittany DuBois, shows up with papers that need to be signed he introduces her as a co-worker seeking advice on a romantic problem. Big hearted Nona insists Pam bring her lover to dinner. Pam cons her podiatrist, played by Scott Meddows, into meeting her at Gino’s home thinking he is making a house call. By the time the disastrous dinner party occurs, Nona’s misguided gossip has caused a strike at the mill. Nona is wondering why Gino isn’t joining the picket lines, and he inadvertently gives Nona the impression that Pam is his paramour. Things only get more confusing at the night goes on.
