“Life offers you a second chance; it’s called tomorrow.” That quote speaks to what The PrimeTime Players’ spring play, The House of Tomorrow, is all about. Written and directed by Susan Shear, the play is made up of 28 scenes about folks our age who deal with a lot of changes and challenges but who still look to the future; to the tomorrows yet to come. The play’s scenes are about people we all know, things we experience; a couple suddenly forced to downsize to a condo; children dealing with their frail mother and who will take her in; a couple navigating the foreign world of online dating; a father encouraging his daughter to find herself and leave home at last; a woman frazzled by technology new to her; a man retiring at last from a job he never liked and a couple who’ve run out of things to say to one another.

While The House of Tomorrow is not a full musical, there are six songs written by Scott Williams, a London songwriter. Our musical director is Linda Griffin. As in The PrimeTime Players’ last two productions, an ensemble cast will take on the roles of nearly 50 characters of various ages. The cast includes Connie Ward, Casey Domalewski, Joan Cohen, Dianne Ashby, Tim Morsani, Susan Sterling, Sam Page, Sandi Mahanna, Shawne Cryderman, Sam Horowitz, Ron Andrea and Karen Moore. Our staff and crew include Linda Griffin, Alex Infald, Bill Trapp, Pat Andrea, Dick Fleming, Steve Shear, Susan Saunders, Sue Gehlbach, Marjorie Herrmann, Linda Wright and Gin Baber.
