Le Petit Theatre’s regular season opens on September 6 with eleven performances of LOMBARDI.
Ron Gural will direct the play about the legendary Green Bay Packer’s Coach Vince Lombardi. A cub reporter is assigned to do a story on Lombardi and is quickly immersed into the very real life of the man on the football field and in his personal life – revealing the passion, the drive, and the unique ability of this powerful figure to push others towards perfection.
New Orleans actor Casey Groves will play the football icon and will be joined on stage by his real-life wife, Rachel Whitman Groves, who will play the part of the coach’s wife. Other local actors include Carl Palmer, who will play Jim Taylor, the Green Bay fullback and All American who played college football at LSU. Actors Kevin Songy, Ross Britz and Ian Lawrence will round out the cast.
Tickets are now available for eleven performances Sept. 6 – 21. Ticket prices range from $30-$50 with a special discount performance on Wednesday, September 18 at 8pm. Tickets for that Sept. 18 performance are $10-$20.
