[GHENT, NY] – The Ghent Playhouse presents the Capital District Community Theatre premiere of musical “Fun Home.” Winner of five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, it is based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir. “Fun Home” runs March 25-April 10. Tickets are on sale now at
This groundbreaking production introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family who connect with her in surprising new ways. Moving between past and present, she relives her childhood playing at the family’s funeral home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. “Fun Home” is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
Real-life mother and daughter Helen Annely and Rosalyn Annely play Adult Allison and Young Allison; Noah Fey Hamm is college-age Allison; Amy Fiebke plays Allison’s mother; Jeffrey Jene is Allison’s father. Other actors include Ely Loskowitz, Brayden Huneau, Quinn Miller and Connor Eastman.
Joanne Mensching is Musical Director. Kelly Seinkiewicz is Choreograher and the production’s co-directors are Michael McDermott and Michael C. Mensching.
