When: Sunday, January 20, 2019
Time: 6:00 pm
Where: Emerald Coast Theatre Company

It’s been said life is a delicate dance. Emerald Coast Theatre Company continues its 6th season by presenting the Northwest Florida premiere of Mark St. Germain’s poignant 2014 play, “Dancing Lessons,” January 17 through February 3. 

The performance runs Thursday, Jan. 17 (opening night) through Sunday, Feb. 3 and will be staged at ECTC’s performance space located at 560 Grand Boulevard (upstairs) in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, located in Miramar Beach, Florida. Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on Sundays. Curtain time on January 20 is 6 p.m. Running time is 95 mins. This production is appropriate for ages 13 and older.

Theater patrons are encouraged to come early (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) to browse artwork by local artists showcased in the ECTC Lobby Gallery curated by Lori Drew, founder of Lowkylzart. A portion of proceeds from each sale benefits ECTC and its education outreach and scholarship programs.

Tickets are $30 for adults; $28 for seniors (55 years old and up) students, and military. Purchase tickets online at emeraldcoastheatre.org/tickets or call (850) 684-0323.

This play tells the story of Ever, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, who seeks the instruction of a Broadway dancer to learn enough dancing to survive an awards dinner. The dancer, Senga, however, is recovering from an injury that may stop her dancing career permanently. As their relationship unfolds, they’re both caught off-guard by the discoveries —both hilarious and heartwarming — that they make about each other and about themselves.

​“This comedy has both humor and heart,” said ECTC producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher. “It provides fun characters from different worlds and brings those characters together in a humorous way — all while reminding us that our humanity is beautiful. I can’t think of a better way to warm winter and hearts as we near the ‘season of love.’”

The New York Times said it is a “touching and entertaining” play that is at once a “fish-out-of-water comedy, an odd-couple romance and a compassionate, understanding-autism homily.”

Nathanael Fisher directs a two-member cast featuring Adam Silorey as Ever and Caitie Moss as Senga. Both actors make their ECTC debut with this production.

Adam Silorey comes to ECTC from the Detroit area. He most recently appeared in the original cast of Blue Gate Musical's production of “Stolen: A Musical Mystery.” Silorey has performed at the Walt Disney World Resort and has appeared in theaters from Cincinnati to Virginia Beach. Some of his favorite roles include: Georg Nowack in “She Loves Me,” Richard Hannay in “The 39 Steps,” J.D. in “Heathers: The Musical,” Trigorin in “The Seagull” and Count Dracula in “Dracula.” He earned his BA in theater performance at Cedarville University, and holds an MFA in acting from Regent University.

Caitie L. Moss, who hails from Wytheville, Virginia, counts the following among her favorite regional credits: “Sweeney Todd (Mrs. Lovett), “A Chorus Line” (Kristine), “Little Shop of Horrors” (Audrey), “Hairspray” (Penny), “The Marvelous Wonderettes” (Suzy), “Elf: The Musical” (Charlotte), “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” (Dorcas), “Show Boat” (Ellie), “The Tempest” (Ariel), “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” (Sally), “Cats” (Sillabub), and the national tours of “A Christmas Carol” (Lucy & Mrs. Fezziwig) among others. She holds a BFA degree in musical theatre from Lees-McRae College.

Costume design is by ECTC associate artistic director Anna Fisher. The production is stage managed by Bridgett Bryant. Set and lighting design is by Anna and Nathanael Fisher.

All professional mainstage productions schedules are Thursday (opening night) through Saturday at 7:30pm with Sunday matinees at 2pm (unless noted otherwise).
