Cast Announced for LUNA GALE at Dayton Theatre Guild

DTGDayton Theatre Guild is pleased to announce the cast of LUNA GALE by Rebecca Gilman.

The cast in order of appearance:
  • Kayla Graham as Karlie
  • Andrew Poplin as Peter
  • Cheryl Mellen as Caroline
  • Cassandra Engber as Cindy
  • Heather Atkinson as Lourdes
  • Tim Moore as Cliff

LUNA GALE is a very contemporary play about a veteran social worker who believes she has a typical case on her hands when she meets two teenage drug addicts accused of neglecting their baby daughter, Luna Gale. The social worker places the six month old baby in the care of her maternal grandmother, Cindy, who requests permanent adoption. Is it better for the child to be reared by a rabidly evangelical grandmother or eventually to be reunited with the rehabilitated parents? This is a play about moral dilemma, faith and forgiveness.

CINCINNATI, OH – Last December, more than 1,400 patrons packed into venues in Walnut Hills and Montgomery to enjoy the debut holiday performance of the NO PROMISES Vocal Band. The ensemble reprises its 2015 holiday hit with a five-city tour and a new record.

NO PROMISES returns to Cincinnati with “Christmas With No Promises” at New Thought Unity Center (1401 E. McMillan Street, Walnut Hills) on Friday, December 9 at 7:30pm, and Community of the Good Shepherd (8815 E. Kemper Road, Montgomery) on Sunday, December 11 at 6:00pm. Admission to the one-hour concerts is free; a freewill offering will be accepted. Reservations are not required, but it is recommended that audiences arrive early. Concerts in Dayton and Cincinnati have been filled to capacity.

The “Christmas With No Promises” tour will include six Ohio concerts in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Findlay and Toledo. The ensemble will perform selections from both Christmas and everyday repertoire, coinciding with release of their new record, “A No Promises Christmas.” Audiences can expect spiritual and secular holiday favorites, along with jazz and pop tunes from Manhattan Transfer, Andy Williams and Taylor Swift.

New Record
“Christmas With No Promises” coincides with the release of the ensemble’s debut album “A No Promises Christmas.” The ten-track disc was mixed by Ed Boyer, who has been responsible for the studio sound of NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” Universal Pictures’ “Pitch Perfect” and groups including Pentatonix and Home Free.

Comprised of all original arrangements, “A No Promises Christmas” will include fresh interpretations of sacred songs like “Silent Night” and “In The Bleak Midwinter” with jazz-infused treatments of tunes such as “Sleigh Ride,” Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” and selections from Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

The album will be available for $15 as a CD. Digital downloads will also be available.

NO PROMISES is a new professional a cappella ensemble bringing exhilarating vocals and breathtaking harmonizations to popular favorites of jazz, Motown and adult contemporary music. Hailing from across Ohio, the eight men of No Promises are jazz pianists, Broadway veterans, theatre producers, hair stylists and dads, with a passion for fine a cappella singing.

“Christmas With No Promises” Tour
Debuting with a Christmas album was no accident. NO PROMISES’ sold-out 2015 holiday concerts in Dayton and Cincinnati drew more than 1,700 patrons, with many regrettably turned away at the door. The group’s six-concert Ohio tour offers more seats and opportunities in new markets:
