Roaming around ACT this morning, here's what there is to report:
Early in the day for La Cris Jordan's The Ticket, and this group is throwing itself into the play rather enthusiastically. Vets Kaleb Hagen-Kerr and Amanda Williams play parents to Virges Matthew Middleton and Chris Ensweiler; Virge Sylvie Davidson plays Middleton's expectant wife.

With Williams playing hard of hearing, Davidson's expectancy and Ensweiler performing with a stutter, hilarity may very well ensue.
