The Boys Next Door opens April 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 & 19 at 7:30 PM and April 6 and 13 at 2:00 PM
"The Boys Next Door," is a poignant comedy centering on four mentally challenged men living together in a neighborhood group home. For them, life is alternately confusing, threatening, and wondrous, but for Jack, their social worker, life has brought him to the brink of deciding whether to continue in his job or go in a new direction. "The Boys Next Door" is a heartwarming play that reminds audiences that we all have hopes and fears, dreams and disappointments, and that we aren't so very different from one another.
Director Donna Seage states "This is a very talented cast and we hope you will join us for this wonderfully touching and hilarious production that offers us an interesting, honest look at how we deal with the mentally challenged in our society. The cast of "The Boys Next Door" includes: Jonathan Higdon, Michael McGee, Justin Winton, Brad McCrary, Mark Dixon, Rae Ellyn Kelley, Steven Luster and Susan Higdon.
