Glenbard North to present 'Marie Antoinette' May 2-4
Glenbard North Theatre will present its spring production, "Marie Antoinette," May 2- 4. Humorous and haunting, this show is part play, part fashion show, and all attitude.
In David Adjmi's contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France's love affair with the Royals sours as revolution brews. Even the most fashionable queens go out of style. For Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal.
From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of "Liberte! Egalite! Fraternite!" in the streets, "Marie Antoinette" holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death. How's a queen to keep her head in the middle of a revolution?
The cast includes Demi Dumovich as Marie Antoinette, Chris Talia as Louis XVI, Eric Norman as Joseph, Alex Lazzara as Fersen, John Flynn III as Dauphin, Janielle Caluanan as Polignac, Dyeato Paye as Lamballe, Dennis Mathew as Mr. Sauce, Sam Ferengul as Mrs. Sauce, Angel Belmonte as the Sheep, Charlie O'Leary as Revolutionary 1, Jarred Baligod as Revolutionary 2, Pavel Paunov as Revolutionary 3, Joshua Baker as a Royalist, Gael Rojas as Guard 1, Jose Montalvo as Guard 2, Dominic Frusolone as the Goat/Male Attendant, Nora Beckett as Female Attendant 1, Katie Pérez as Female Attendant 2, and Sarah Loster as Female Attendant 3.
