Five Women Wearing the Same Dress coming to Marilyn I. Walker Theatre

A production opening soon at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts will showcase the talents of the graduating student ensemble.

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress by Academy Award winning author Alan Ball will be presented Dec. 1 and 2 at the downtown St. Catharines arts school.

The production focuses on a Tennessee wedding, and more importantly, the bridesmaids. One rebels, one prays, one eats, one lusts and one swears off romance forever. Trouble lurks everywhere for these colourful and disorderly women, and as the music gets louder and things get rowdier, they must come together to help one another navigate the storms of life.

Five Women is directed by Brock Professor Gyllian Raby and assisted by fourth-year student Tarndeep Pannu. Other students from the 2017-18 DART 4F56 ensemble include cast members Helena Ciuciura, Meryl Ochoa, Samantha Mastrella, Rebecca Downing, Candice Burn and Mark Dickinson. Set design is by Jillian Wardell, costume design by Sarah Marks, sound design by Naomi Richardson and lighting design by guest instructor James McCoy. The production is stage managed by Chelsea Wilson, Allie Aubry and Michelle Mohammed with Kaylyn Valdez-Scott as publicist and Adrian Marchesano and Mackenzie Kerr on the production team.

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress plays Dec. 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts’ Theatre in St. Catharines.

Tickets for the show are $5 and available through the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre box office at 905-688-0722 or on the PAC website.
