Essentially a play about putting on a play, Light Up the Sky revolves around a group of New York theatre folk who attend the opening of their new play in Boston and features multiple hilarious plot twists.

The cast is comprised of Stevenson students John Holliman, Rachel Keenan, Nora Long, Ebi Short, KJ Renfroe, Aaleiah Poindexter, Naomi LaRonde-King, and Malachi Broadus, as well as Stevenson alumnus Ben Tschirgi and Towson alumnus Sean Kelly.

Light Up the Sky is a comedy, with quirky, funny characters. But, as amusing as they are, the characters are real, and that’s what makes the play great,” Chambers said. “We have a terrific ensemble of 10 actors who have been working hard for weeks.”
