Cedar decided to produce the play at the end of the school year and recruited fellow thespians, who have all worked professionally, as cast and crew. The group recently returned from The Fringe Festival in Scotland where they performed in Elizabeth Swados’ “Runaways.”  The cast features Riley Ceder, Miya Chua, Whitney Davis, Brian Ioakimedes, Noah Prestwich (also Associate Director) and Riley Smith (also Associate Producer).  It is directed by Libe Barer. Set and costume design is by Ruby McCollister. Production assistant is Elizabeth Goodrich.

Ceder said he chose Komen because there is breast cancer in his family and he wanted to do something to contribute to the cause.

If you cannot attend, please consider donating by mailing a check payable to Susan G. Komen for the Cure to Riley Ceder at 4434 Strohm Avenue in Toluca Lake, Ca 91602.

Email to reserve tickets.  $20 adults/$15 students. Performances will be held at The Complex Theatre  6476 Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood on Friday September 4th at 7:30pm, Saturday September 5th at 2 pm and 7:30pm, and Sunday September 6th at 2 pm.
