The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park’s Off the Hill family series production of JOAN THE GIRL OF ARC by Darrah Cloud will be performed at The Ludlow Theatre ~ Home of Circus Mojo at 322 Elm Street (Rt 8), Ludlow, Ky 41016. The show is open to the public and will take place on Friday, February 7, 2014; circus pre-show begins at 6:00 PM, show begins at 7:00pm. Seats are first come, first served and a donation of $2-$5 per person is suggested. Each family donating will be entered in a drawing for a free week of Circus Mojo Summer Camp!
The world premiere play, recommended for ages 11 and up, offers a new perspective on the classic story of the young woman who helped save France. Playwright Darrah Cloud previously wrote What’s Buggin’ Greg for Off the Hill in 2011. “I was drawn to her because of her skills and passion for our work,” said Mark Lutwak, education director at the Playhouse. “We agreed that the story of Joan of Arc had a lot in it to speak to the youth of today.”
JOAN THE GIRL OF ARC will be directed by Playhouse Associate Artist KJ Sanchez, who recently directed the world premiere of Seven Spots on the Sun in the Thompson Shelterhouse Theatre.
“When I was a young girl, Joan of Arc was one of my first heroes,” Sanchez said.
Chelsea D. Harrison (Joan), Jon Kovach (Daniel), Rico Reid (Father/Captain Baudricort/High Priest), Shayna Schmidt (Denise) and Justin Weaks (Father Moreau/Dauphin) from the Playhouse’s Bruce E. Coyle Intern Company will appear in JOAN THE GIRL OF ARC.
Other production team members include Christopher Boone (Set Designer), Gordon DeVinney (Costume Designer), Jeremy J. Lee (Sound Designer) and Tracy Hoida (Stage Manager).
