16th Street Theater announces the cast of the world premiere of playwright-in-residence J. Joseph Cox’s KOALAS directed by Josh Sobel September 20 – October 27, 2018 at North Berwyn Park District’s 16th Street Theater, 6420 16th Street in Berwyn.
We are thrilled to be featuring three Artistic Associates: Ed Dzialo who leads the cast as Ray Slinger, Michele Di Maso who plays next-door neighbor Gabby and Esteban Andres Cruz as Theo the koala. Newcomer Leo Sharkey plays 10-year old Natalie/Nate as well as Young Ray, and Michael Holding takes on the role of Ray’s brother, John.
A family comedy by J. Joseph Cox about heroes and their shrinking territory, KOALAS takes place over one week in Fresno, California in the spring of 1999 and explores the changing definition of what it means to be a man.
