The third and final production of the 76th season at Simcoe Little Theatre features “Race Day” by Norm Foster and Steve Thomas. The play runs May 4 to 14 with a local cast and crew directed by Tony Proracki with musical direction by Michelle Proracki.

Mr. Proracki says “the setting is a day at the racetrack along with a variety of characters who, for the most part, are there to bet on horses for a variety of reasons.”

“The musical score by Steve Thomas adds to the excitement of being fully engaged in a bet… on a horse… during a race,” said Mr. Proracki.

The cast features Maggie Baker as Rose (May 4, 6, 12, 14), waitress; John Dickson as bartender; Janet Dickson as Lucinda, a “channeler”; Hannah Dolson as Roxie; Tina Gates as wagering window cashier; Ashton Harding as Rose (May 5, 7, 11, 13), waitress; Susan LeBone as Sister Emily; Mitchell McGivern as Jordan Porter aka Shakespeare; Christy Miedema as Chester, a thief; Christine Schantz as Rich Betting Lady; Roselle Slaght as Rich Betting Lady; Sue Thompson security guard; and Mackenzie Tigwell as Gerard, a theif.
