FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2014:

A comedy written by Lisa Loomer and directed by Guest Director Adele Kuyek, produced by Teresa McKerral and by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. Rated PG13 (some swearing).

What’s wrong with nine-year-old Jesse?   He can’t sit still. He curses. He raps. You can’t get him into—or out of—pajamas. His teacher thinks it’s Attention Deficit Disorder.

Dad says, “He’s just a boy!” Mama’s on a quest for answers.

Is Jesse dysfunctional, or just different? A hilarious, provocative, and poignant look at a modern family and an epidemic dilemma. Are we so tuned into our 24/7 info-rich world that we’ve tuned out what really matters?

Adele has a wonderful cast for this show, with some brand new faces to Shuswap Theatre. The cast consists of:  Mama;Teresa McKerral, Dad; Randy Brogden, Jesse; Justice Skelhorne, Sherry; Cheryl-Lee Sager, Vera; Sheri Reynard, Natalie; Emmy Sim, Carolyn; Hilary Wallis, Mrs. Holly/Nurse; Lois Archer-Duell, Waitress; Joy Peters, Dr. Broder/Dr. Jinks/Dr. Karnes/Actor with ADD; Eric Reynard and Fludiity Flow; Annick Smith & Bonnie Birch
