(January 15, 2018 – Kenner LA)  - Back by popular demand each year and Carnival spirit inspiration, Rivertown

Theaters for the Performing Arts will bring back locally written And The Ball and All for two weekends again this February.

This year we’re pleased to announce New Orleans comic actor extraordinaire, Sean Patterson (The Odd Couple, The Producers, Hello Dawlin’, Ditzyland, Steel Poinsettias) will be guest-starring as Becky Allen’s nemesis, Verna LeBlanc!  Even if you’ve seen …And The Ball And All before, you’ve never seen it like this!

The outrageous, affectionate chronicle of Y'at social customs must be imbued with immortal energies, because it keeps coming back and audiences still love it since 1995.  Much of the humor grows out of local references, such as -- "She's got more rolls than McKenzie's" but even if humor drives the play more than plot, at its core, The Ball is a Y'at comedy of manners -- or ill-manners!  It's a remarkable and enduring achievement for writer/director Ricky Graham and the krewe.

Becky Allen, Sean Patterson, Yvette Hargis, Rebecca Taliancich, Leslie Claverie, Mandy Zirkenbach
