Attleboro Community Theatre (ACT) is thrilled to continue its 62nd Season with MOM’S GIFT, written by Phil Olson and directed by Emily Lamarre (Attleboro, MA) and assisted by Bob Lively (Attleboro, MA).

Mom has been dead for eleven months and shows up at her husband’s birthday party as a ghost with a mission.

Like Clarence in It’s A Wonderful Life, she has to accomplish a task to earn her wings. Only what the task actually is, is a mystery. There are so many things to fix.

The problem is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her Anger Management Program.

One-by-one the family’s secrets are peeled away revealing a shocking truth that surprises even our ghost. The very talented and locally-based cast includes:

Kat – Ellen Robinson (Mansfield, MA) – ACT Stage Debut!

Mom – Elizabeth Parent (Albion, RI)

Dad – Johnny Bender (Attleboro, MA)

Brittney – Kimmi Roche (Attleboro, MA)

Trish – Karen DiOrio (Woonsocket, RI)

Kevin – Jay DiLisio (Attleboro, MA)

Mrs. Norquist – Anne Faiella (Norton, MA)
