Cast announced for STEAL AWAY at Black Theatre Troupe

A Folktale, set in Chicago during the Depression, this farce is the story of 5 upstanding church ladies who raise funds to send young Black women to college by holding bake sales and the like. But when they are turned down at the bank for a loan to send another young woman to college, because the White bank manager doesn't think "colored girls" need an education, the ladies decide to join in Tracyada's scheme to rob a bank! This uproarious comedy features Amani Anacaona as "Tracyada," Cynnita Agent as "Blu," Shonda Royall as "Sutty," Cherylandria Banks as "Stella," Sylvia LaVonnté as "Jade," and Lydia Corbin as "Red." STEAL AWAY will be directed by Walter Belcher.

STEAL AWAY will be performed September 15 through October 1, 2023 at the Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center, 1333 E. Washington St., Phoenix, AZ 85034. 

Tickets are $50 and are on sale at or by calling 602-258-8128.
