Director Stefan Lingenfelter and Producer Rik Medic have announced the cast for BLT’s next production, The Rise and Rise of Daniel Rocket, a drama by Peter Parnell. The featured players are Justin Anderson, John Carlson, Grant Clark, Molly Miller, Cody Nagle, Samantha Roth, Montana Simpson, Michelle Steiner, Allison Marie Torres, and Laila Tyler.
Sixth grader Daniel Rocket is firmly convinced that he can fly, a belief that causes him to be shunned and ridiculed by his schoolmates. However, it turns out that Daniel can fly, although, initially he does so in secret. When, at last, he demonstrates his talent to the others, he straps on wings in deference to their stubborn disbelief. From then on, Daniel soars to fame and fortune. A true original, this fresh and richly imaginative work explores the trauma of growing up from a unique and arresting point of view.
The Rise and Rise of Daniel Rocket runs March 9-11 and 13-17, 2018. Tickets will go on sale to the General Public beginning March 1.
