The cast of the Hippodrome's latest show is composed of University of Florida alumni and students.
King O’ The Moon is the new show opening Friday night at the Hippodrome in Gainesville. Even though the play is a sequel to a show from the Hipp’s season last year, you don’t have to see the first one to understand and enjoy this play.
The play is set in the 1960′s, and actor Michael Crider says the show will appeal to everyone because it is centered around a relatable American family.
Crider has performed in more than ten productions at the Hipp. He says he has worked and studied under the director of the play, David Shelton, before and it was a great reunion to be working with him again.
Crider talked with Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Michal Higdon.
