Sheddin’ Cast and Creative Team

Horizon Theatre has officially announced the cast and creative team for the upcoming world premiere comedy Sheddin‘ by Thomas W. Jones II. Bebop meets hip hop in this follow up to 2009’s A Cool Drink A Water.

An all-star cast led by playwright Thomas W. Jones II as patriarch Walt also features Donna Biscoe as Walt’s wife Ruthie, Enoch King as Walt’s hip hop superstar son Trane, LaParee Young and E. Roger Mitchell as Walt’s backyard buddies, and Francesca McKenzie as Korean pop singer E’Boa. Walt, along with his jazz loving cohorts, has orchestrated a surprise for son Trane, just home from his first international hip hop tour. What Trane expects to be a welcome home party turns into a bid by Walt and his sidekicks to star as Trane’s opening act. The shock of such a proposal is compounded by Walt and Ruthie’s dismay at a little surprise Trane has of his own– a Korean pop fiancé. Sheddin’ is a side-splitting story of family, love, and following your dreams.
