Introducing…BENTLEY!

BENTLEY poster for blogThe 26th season of shows produced by local faith-driven theatre company, all for One productions, is soon to begin. But behind the scenes we’ve been hard at work all summer to ensure that our audiences will enjoy the same excellent, family-friendly, thought-provoking and values-rich fare they’ve come to expect.

To all those characteristics, one should add:  unusual.  Fully three-quarters of afO’s offerings are either area premieres (no other company locally has done it yet) or world premieres (no one else has EVER performed the work).  This is a fairly unusual category for any community theatre to boast of, but afO is producing its EIGHTH world premiere in the past ten years! In fact, our current season’s opener, Bentley, is the second premiere to grace afO’s stage this calendar year. (Sam Ward’s one-man musical, David, was performed just this past February.)

We will introduce Michael Wilhelm and give him a chance to tell you a bit about the inspiration for this delightful comedy-drama, in a later post. For now, here is a list of the cast members (who are already in rehearsal and having a blast getting ready for our September opening):
