Cedartown, has been cast as Diego in the stage production of The Frog Prince which is being produced by WonderQuest Sept. 28-Oct 6 at Brenau University’s Hosch Theatre, 429 Academy St., Gainesville.
WonderQuest is the young audiences division of the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, a nationally recognized collaboration between Gainesville State College, Brenau University, theatre professionals and the north Georgia community. This is the first on-stage role for Stephens, a graduate of Cedartown High School, who was on the construction crew for numerous GTA shows last season, and was employed this summer as a carpenter to build the set for The Frog Prince.
“With just four weeks from casting to opening, preparations and rehearsal for this show have been a brilliant challenge,” Stephens commented. “I am thrilled to be working with Gay Hammond, a visionary director who makes this a tremendous learning experience.”
Nearly 6,000 elementary and middle school students will be in the audience for WonderQuest’s school matinees. Tickets for family performances of The Frog Prince are $10-12 for adults and seniors (65 and up) and $6-7 for students, and are now on sale through the GTA Box Office, 678-717-3624, or online at www.gainesvilletheatrealliance.org.
