101 Dalmatians opens Friday at Tift Theatre


 Are you seeing spots? Head to the Tift Theatre for the Performing Arts Friday and you surely will.

The Tift Theatre Sizzlin' Stage Summer Camp presents its inaugural production, Disney's "101 Dalmatians," beginning Friday evening at 7 p.m. There will also be a show Saturday evening, also at 7. Tickets are $10 and are available at the theater box office.

Based on the novel "The Hundred and One Dalmatians" by Dodie Smith, the screenplay was written by Bill Peet. The story hit the big screen the first time in 1961, but Disney rebooted it in 1996, starring Glenn Close as the iconic villainess Cruella DeVil.

The story takes place in London, as dalmatian owner Roger meets Anita, who also has a dalmatian, Perdita. The pair fall in love and marry, but their bliss is tarnished when DeVil, a fur lover, determines that her next coat will be made of – you guessed it – dalmatian. She sends her lackeys to steal the puppies sired by Roger's dog Pongo, and hilarity ensues.

Under the direction of Robert Reid Goodson, managing director at the Tift, this cast brings the story to life once again. The story will be narrated by Audrey Conner, Haley Kolze, Zahnni Daniel and Zaria Mavenyengwa. 

Cruella comes to life as portrayed by Paige Wallace. Roger and Anita are played by Alyssa Wallace and Gwyn Conner, respectively, while Pongo and Perdita are played by Eli Brickman and Tessa Griffin.

Adding to the hilarity will be DeVil's lackeys, Jasper, played by Gage Wallace, and Horace, played by Rion Deloach. 

Other characters include Casey Mallow, Nanny; Katie Lott, Sergeant Tibbs; Hannah Davis, and police officer; Chelsea Todd, dog catcher.

Playing the puppies will be Ryley O'Neal as Patch, Madison Chambers as Penny, Gabi Hernandez as Lucky, Hannah Vaughn as Pepper, Gavin McDuffie as Spot; Chloe McDuffie as Dot; and Tye Williams, Ayumi Wallace, Reagan Perri, Sarah Mallow and Gabe Pinkowski.

The London dogs will be played by Goodson, Judy H. Thomas, Garrett Roberts, Alena Phillips and Andrew Burton.
