The Verona High School Spotlight Players will be returning to the VHS stage this November with the Neo-Futurist play, “Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind: 30 Plays in 60 Minutes.”
The show, which was the longest running show in Chicago’s theater history (running from 1988 to 2016) features an ensemble of 20 students: Sofia Albanese, Aidan Azarowicz, Kate Bernard, Nicholas Boake, Faith Brolly, Leila Brolly, Emma DePaul, Sofia Greco, Jack McHugh, Grace McMahan, Mike Murphy, Sophia Nuñez, Ian Ostermayer, Lauren Ryan, Abby Schust, James Shorten, Madison Suk, Luca Tedesco, Amanda Visone, and Sarah Wynne.
The show is under the direction of Steven Munoz with assistant director Alyssa Lipesky, assistant producer Olivia Tedesco and stage manager Stephanie Zimany.
The 30 short plays call for audience participation, as the order of the plays will be determined by audience members. The show will run from Thursday, November 18 to Saturday, November 20 at 8 p.m., with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets will be available online in November.
