A.C.T. Announces Cast, Creative Team for Volleygirls Premiere

The American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) has announced the cast for their upcoming production of Robert Ackerman’s Volleygirls, March 12-28, to be directed by W. D. Keith.

Featured MFA Program students include James Bigelow (Coach), Nick Gabriel (Dirk, Ref, Phil, Ben), Kelsey Venter (Jess), and Cat Walleck (Sally, Carla, Lauren). Featured Young Conservatory students include Zoe Burnbaum (Crash), Madeleine Kelley (Jocelyn), Caitlin Martin (Liv), Arianna Papalexopoulos (Marisol), Katie Rich (Ingrid), Jacqueline Toboni (Katie), and Colin Woodell (Xavier).

The creative team will feature Lilana Duque-Pineiro (scenic design), Callie Floor (costume design), Sara Huddleston (sound design), and Ian Smith (lighting design).
