Louisiana Tech School of Theatre has announced its cast for Winter 2022’s live production of the dramedy Church and State by Jason Odell Williams, directed by Cherrie Sciro.

The cast members selected by Sciro, Assistant Director Katie Brumfield, and Intimacy Director Olivia Willcox include the following:

  • Brett Chase as Charlie Whitmore (Lake Charles)
  • Laney Goodwin as Sara Whitmore (West Monroe)
  • Blair O’Blanc as Alex Klein (Lake Charles)
  • Ian Taylor as Tom (Allen, Texas)
  • James Roberts as Marshall/Reporter (Dayton, Ohio)
  • Ali Fletcher as Single Reporter (Charleston, West Virginia)
  • Anna Fontenot as Reporter (Cypress, Texas)
  • Kaitlin Wiegle as Reporter (Mechanicsville, Virginia)

The play focuses on a Senate campaign and whether or not faith and politics can coexist in the wake of a school shooting that rocks an elementary school and its community. The cast deals with the hectic political landscape of legislature — and attempts to retain grace and some sense of humor about the trials along the way.

The play runs Feb. 2-5 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 6 at 2 p.m. at Stone Theatre on the Tech campus.
