Union Street Players is proud to announce the cast for our Tulip Time production, Tulip House, by Stephanie Alexander. This is the world premiere of Tulip House, which was awarded first prize in USP’s playwriting contest last year. The play tells the story of a modern family who agrees to take part in a reality television show in which they live like a Pella family in the 1930’s. Through the experience the family learns many lessons about themselves and their community.
The cast and production crew include many faces familiar to USP audiences, a few faces we’ve not seen in a few years, and we’re very excited to have two Central College actors making their USP debuts.
