Parkway Playhouse Family “The Storrs”

WARNING:  There will be more sequels to this post than there are Die Hard movies because the cast of A Christmas Carol is filled with family connections.  Today, though, we feature Will and Rob Storrs, because Will’s* other show The Complete History of America (abridged) opens tonight (7:30 pm ~ Burnsville Town Center).  Yes, that’s right–he’s rehearsing for two shows at once.  (And he’s not the only one: many of the young actors in A Christmas Carol are also in Mulan.)Image

At the last rehearsal, Will gave director Andrew Gall (and the rest of us) some good belly-laughs, so his performance tonight is sure to do the same for you.  In fact, when Rob was asked what it was like to be in the same cast as his son, he just laughed.

* The show is also McKensie Pauley, Ryan Robertson, and Jenny Martin’s… and probably Haven’s too, since she’s doing props. Break legs! (Anyone know where that phrase comes from?  The answer will be revealed in a future post…if no one spills the beans in the comments–which you should feel free to do.)
