Attleboro Community Theatre Presents "American Strippers"


Attleboro Community Theatre is thrilled to continue their 61st Season with American Strippers, written by Kevin Broccoli and directed by Megan Ruggiero (Pawtucket, RI). In this clever commentary on mythology, the Greek goddesses throw Aphrodite a bachelorette party at Americana, a male strip club in the heart of Texas, but Hera, Queen of the Gods, is none too pleased about this and leaves Mount Olympus to break up the party. The club is jointly owned by Paula Bunyan and none other than Dionysus, God of Wine, Fertility, and of course, Theatre. Americana is “staffed” by American folk legends, including but not limited to, Johnny Appleseed & Davy Crockett. Anything is possible when mythologies unite! The locally-based and very talented cast includes:
Jay Are Adams as Mr. Henry/John Henry (Riverside, RI) – ACT Debut
Vivienne Carrette as Athena (Providence, RI) – ACT Debut
Brandon Harrington as Johnny/Johnny Appleseed (Attleboro, MA)
Jason Karol as Billy/Pecos Bill (Medway, MA)
Emily Lamarre as Sally Ann Crockett (Attleboro, MA)
Bob Lively as Casey/Casey at the Bat (Attleboro, MA)
