Penobscot Theatre Company proudly presents the Maine premiere of Becky's New Car, a fresh new comedy playing at the historic Bangor Opera House from October 17-November 4.
Playwright Steven Dietz expertly maps out this thoroughly original, insightfully comic ride down "the road not taken." Becky is married, in her late 40's, and working at a car dealership. When one night, by chance, she's offered an opportunity to step into another life-she takes it-and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn't dare.
New York based actress, Stacey Scotte plays "Becky." Stacey's New York credits include "The House of Blue Leaves," "Diminished Fifth," "Stormy Weather," work at the NY Musical Theatre Festival and NY Fringe. Regional Theatre credits include productions at Florida Repertory Theatre, Florida Studio Theatre, and Sacramento Music Circus. Stacey has also worked extensively on cruise ships including the Silver Shadow and Norweigan Star. Film/Television credits include: "Julie & Julia," "Me & Will," "Pretty Little Thing," "The Carnivore's Revenge," "30 Rock," "The Practice," "Unsolved Mysteries," "Zoobilee Zoo." Stacey was also a 5 time contestant on "The Gong Show."
The rest of the cast is comprised of Ron Lisnet (To Kill A Mockingbird), Ken Stack (A Christmas Carol), Brad LaBree, Allen Adams (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), Zoe Alexis Scott, and Alex Clausen.
