The House of Tomorrow is about us. In a world dominated by the young, this play instead finds its heroes and heroines in people our age; people who, while dealing with everyday turmoil and tension, changes and challenges, still dream about tomorrow. Written and directed by SaddleBrooke resident Susan Shear, with a cast and crew of SaddleBrooke talent, the play is a compilation of scenes about such things as a couple at odds with each other over their adult daughter who lives at home; a mother and daughter whose values are as far apart as the miles between them; a husband and wife at a marriage counselor’s office; a man and woman nervously exploring the world of online dating; a father hanging on to his independence and a mother whose daughter is moving away. Complementing the 28 scenes are six songs written by a well-known director in London and directed by SaddleBrooke’s own Linda Griffin.

The ensemble cast that portrays nearly 50 roles includes: Shawne Cryderman, Ron Andrea, Connie Ward, Joan Cohen, Sandi Mahanna, Dianne Ashby, Karen Moore, Susan Sterling, Tim Morsani, Sam Page, Casey Domalewski and Sam Horowitz. Our hard working crew includes Pat Andrea, Bill Trapp, Alex Infald, Dick Fleming, Steve Shear, Sue Gehlbach, Susan Saunders, Marjorie Herrmann, Linda Wright and Gin Baber. Susan Sterling is also the assistant director and choreographer.

The House of Tomorrow performs March 24 through 29, 2015, at the MountainView Cabaret Theatre. Seating is at tables of 10. Tickets are $24 including dessert/coffee/tea served at your table, available at the HOA 2 Office, 825-2818 or online at saddlebrooketwo.com.
