Sixth Street Theater Rehearses for Upcoming Comedy About Theater

WALLACE—There is a lot more to the theater experience than is seen on the stage.

And most of it is pretty hilarious.

The Sixth Street Theater’s upcoming production “Here We Sit” will give you a glimpse into the life of the theater. Using a variety of different scenes to portray different aspects of the theater experience, this production shows scenes such as a director melting down at rehearsal, an actress melting down during a performance, an audience member demanding to be an audience of one after driving through a snow storm to see the play, and the trials and tribulations of two old ladies attending the theater.

The production is directed by Joy Persoon, and the cast includes Sixth Street veteran’s Ken Bartle, Cheri Bartle, Shelley Hodgdon, Vern Hanson, Carol Roberts, Kimara Eisler, Tiffany Carney, Cindy Bachman, Aimee Kinsey, Zack Whitfield and David Walter.

New comers joining the cast include Chad Carlson, Dee Gilcrease, Jason Gilcrease, and Amber Crystal-Rose Hansen.

This play is for mature audiences only, and is not recommended for children under 14 years of age.

The play opens Friday, November 6 at 7 p.m., with theater goers invited to a special Opening Night party at 6 p.m. complete with refreshments.

Other evening performances will be on November 7, 13, 14, 20, and 21, with matinee performances at 2 p.m. on November 8, 15, 21 and 22.
