"It happens occasionally in regional theatres that actors with special ties find their way back home and, give extraordinary performances with a lot of heartfelt emotions," said Ginger Poole, MMT's Producing Artistic Director.
...
The link between MMT's education programs and opportunities to be part of a professional cast is a unique strength of regional, professional theatres and especially MMT, Poole said.
...
"The season honors the traditions that have made MMT so much a part of life in Roanoke," said Ginger Poole, producing artistic director.

"Mill Mountain Theatre's 51st season will honor the traditions that have made us so much a part of life in Roanoke," said Ginger Poole, the professional theatre's producing artistic director. "One of those is big, musicals that consume the stage and fill the hearts of audiences. Another is seeing talented youth on stage in shows that challenge them to reach for new goals. In 2016 we will perform shows that match those expectations and that we know audiences will love."
The season also will see growth of the Mill Mountain Music series that premiered as a limited experiment in 2015. "Sold-out houses convinced us that there is a demand for easy, casual evenings listening to familiar music performed by professional singers and musicians," Poole said. In 2016, the series will grow to three concerts, each performed for two consecutive nights. "Tickets are still cheap, the bar will be open and the evenings will be fun," Poole said.

"The titles and dates are still under wraps," Poole said.

"Many people remember this story best from the 1981 movie that starred Katherine Hepburn, Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda, but the original stage version, which opened on Broadway in 1979, established the play as one that challenges audiences to examine their own personal relationships," said Ginger Poole, MMT's Producing Artistic Director. "Inevitably, you come away from this play with new insight about how your life is intertwined with others'."
MMT has cast its production with the two lead actors - Peter Thomasson playing Norman and Lourelene Snedecker - who have worked together in previous productions and will bring a special sense of understanding of the characters they portray, Poole said.

Poole is in the show, herself, playing the role of Chelsea, the grown daughter whose long-running conflict with her father is a key part of the story.

"Coupled with special events that draw connection with our community's growing recognition about the impact of domestic violence, it is clear that now is the time to produce this show here again," Poole said.

"It is especially appropriate that Mill Mountain Theatre marks its 50th season with both what our audience has come to expect - high-quality live entertainment - and a couple of new ventures intended to grow the core of downtown Roanoke as an entertainment venue," said Ginger Poole, MMT's Producing Artistic Director.
