"CTI Theatre will present the off-Broadway hit The Guys by Anne Nelson to benefit the Indiana “America Remembers Fund” for local fallen firefighters and their families.
The play is a vivid look at a fire captain, paralyzed by grief, who seeks the help of a writer to compose eulogies for the men he lost on Sept. 11, 2001.
The play stars Equity actors James Leagre and Miki Mathioudakis, and is directed by Jennifer Loia Alexander.
The Guys will be performed at the Wheeler Arts Center located at 1035 Sanders St. (across from the police station in Fountain Square). The play will preview on Thursday, Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. on a pay-as-you-can basis, and will then run Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m. from Aug. 11-27. Each performance of The Guys will be preceded by a musical set performed by top local musicians, including Jennie DeVoe, Cathy Morris, Jay Pinto and Deb Mullins. All tickets are $20. Firefighters will be admitted at no charge. All net proceeds go to the Indiana “America Remembers Fund” through Firefighters Credit Union. For information and reservations call 317-423-2999.
