The West Side Show Room is producing the comedy Waiting for Godot which while waiting for a new home will be performed at the Nordlof Center, 118 N. Main St., third floor.
Four performances will be held all at 7 p.m. with the first being on June 13 and following performances on June 14, June 20 and June 21.
This will be the fifth play for The West Side Showroom, which was founded by a diverse group of theater artists who are committed to bringing locally produced theater to downtown Rockford.
Veteran Rockford actors David Causey, Alex McIntyre and Carolyn Cadigan will be joined by Rockford youth Ella Hill and Nasir El-Shabbaz who are both making their West Side Show Room debuts.
Hill and El-Shabbaz will be alternating the role of “boy” with Hill performing in the Saturday shows and El-Shabbaz taking the role in the Sunday shows.
When asked how she feels about playing a boy, Hill stated, “I don’t mind being cast as a boy. If someone is good at acting and they get a boy role that is what they are good at, and that is what I believe is right.”
Hill, in fourth grade at Washington Academy, has done seven shows with Children’s Theater Project.
Tickets are available for $15 online at thewestsideshowroom.com/tickets or $20 at the door.
