Toledo Rep to present ‘Moonglow’ May 8-11

Posted May 8th, 2014 by Elizabeth Cottle  Category: Arts & Entertainment


Special event performance “Moonglow” will be presented at the Toledo Repertoire Theatre Mother’s Day weekend, May 8-11, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter. A comic-drama written Kim Carney and directed by Paul Causman, the play will feature Madge Levinson as Maxine, a woman at the onset of Alzheimer’s disease who is unwillingly moved into an assisted living facility after a kitchen fire and an incident that injures her grandson. Maxine’s attitude begins to change once she meets another elderly resident, Joe, played by Guy Sutherland, and the two discover a mutual connection having both danced at a popular Detroit ballroom in the early ’40s. Through their diseased fog of confusion and sometimes humorous remains of a memory, a relationship is born. “Moonglow” is based on a true story of the author and her own mother and addresses the experience of making unsettling decisions of how to care for elderly parents.

The cast also includes: Jeffrey Albright as Greg; Vickie Jackson as Diane; Thomas French as the sailor; Alana Eddy as the girl; Cindy Bilby as Benita, and the stage direction will be narrated by Carol Ann Erford. Performances Thursday through Saturday will begin at 8 p.m.; Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Tickets cost $15.

This program has been approved for 2.5 continuing professional education for social workers. The Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter is an approved provider of social worker CPE by the State of Ohio Counselor, Social Worker & Marriage and Family Therapist Board #RSX059702.
