It's 1944, the most violent year of the 20th Century, and Allotment Annie follows a dashing Air Force pilot (Carl Lindberg) and a timid and beautiful bartender (Kate Black-Spence) who start a war profiteering scheme that quickly turns to sex, betrayal and murder. While the rest of the globe is fighting Nazism and Fascism, this unlikely couple shakes up a small American town with their exploits and a strong dose of swing dancing and music of the 1940s.
Allotment Annie was originally created during InFusion Theatre's 4th Annual New Play Development Workshop in 2011.
Allotment Annie's cast includes Kate Black-Spence, Carl Lindberg, CJ Langdon, Amy Rapp, Mal Nees, Beau Forbes and understudies Michelle Jacobson and Jason Kellerman.
The production staff includes Majel Cuza, production manager; Jason Crutchfield*, stage manager; Dave Ferguson, set designer; Jenna Stworzyjanek, choreographer; John Kelly, lighting designer, Stephen Ptacek, sound designer; Rachel Sypniewski, costume designer; Devyn Mares*, prop designer; Jamie Bragg*, dramaturg/assistant director and Clare Tuft, casting director.
