A romantic comedy by Alfred Uhry, the author of Driving Miss Daisy, is the next production of ICT MainStage. The Last Night of Ballyhoo opens Friday and runs through June 1 at Irving Arts Center, 3333 N. MacArthur Blvd. Cast members include Greg Phillips, Brandi Andrade, Shannon Rasmussen, Dena Dunn, Rachel Robertson, Edward Treminio and Travis Ponikiewski. Former MacArthur High teacher Bruce Coleman will direct. Set in 1939, the play tells the story of the Freitag family as it prepares for Ballyhoo, a debutante ball for the Jewish community. Forces conspire to pull the family apart and relationships are tested. The question is: Will they do some soul searching to come back together? Performances are at 8 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and May 30, and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $16 to $21 with $5 student rush tickets. Call 972-252-2787.
