Midcoast Actors’ Studio has cast its spring production, the Tony Award-winning play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Based on Mark Haddon’s 2003 novel and adapted by Simon Stephens, the play follows the story of Christopher Boone, a 15-year-old math savant who talks in loud declamatory sentences, doesn’t do chat, and can’t stand to be touched. When he discovers one night that his neighbor’s dog has been murdered, Christopher sets out to solve the crime, embarking on a journey that will change his world forever. Robbie Carroll takes on the lead role of Christopher Boone. Giz Coughlin plays his beloved teacher Siobhan. Christopher’s parents, Judy and Ed, are played by Danielle Bannister and Jason Bannister. Rounding out the cast are Eric Sanders, Peter Conant, John Hamer, Beverly Mann, Monicque Deschamps and Sarah Joy. Suzanne Ramczyk directs the production. Performances run April 26 to May 5 at the The Crosby Center in Belfast. For more information, visit midcoastactors.org or Facebook.
