The Price

by Arthur Miller
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Dennis Hennessy
May 25th to June 12th, 2022

Brothers Victor and Walter Franz, who haven’t spoken to each other in over a decade, reunite to sell the belonging of their late father.  With Walter nowhere to be seen, Victor is left to haggle over prices with the octogenarian antique furniture dealer Gregory Solomon. Memories are dragged up and Victor is confronted with the story of his life, and the price we put on family, security, and life itself. This deceptively simple plot is handled masterfully by renowned American playwright Arthur Miller.

Featuring: Victor Raider-Wexler and Jan Rogge.

Spider's Web

by Agatha Christie
Location: Goppert Theater at Avila University
Director: Darren Sextro
July 13th to July 31st, 2022

KCAT returns to the wonderful world of Agatha Christie for the third time, with former Board President Darren Sextro directing. Spider’s Web is a parody of the detective thriller that Christie is instrumental in having created. Clarissa, the wife of a diplomat, is known for her drama-filled stories. When a murder takes place in her drawing room, she finds real drama much harder to deal with than her stories. Spider’s Web will be performed at the Goppert Theater at Avila University.

Featuring: Hillary Clemens, Cinnamon Schultz, and Matt Schwader.
