Belfast — Midcoast Actors' Studio announced the cast of its spring 2019 production, the Tony Award-winning play “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.” Performances run April 26 through May 5 at the Crosby Center, 96 Church St.

Based on the 2003 novel by Mark Haddon, and adapted by Simon Stephens, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” follows the story of Christopher Boone, a 15-year-old math savant who talks in loud declamatory sentences, doesn’t “do chat” and can’t stand to be touched. When he discovers one night that his neighbor’s dog has been murdered, Christopher sets out to solve the crime, embarking on an exciting journey that will change his world forever.

“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” which won five Tony Awards in 2015, including Best Play, will be directed for MAS by Suzanne Ramczyk. Robbie Carroll takes on the lead role of Christopher Boone. Giz Coughlin plays his beloved teacher, Siobhan. Christopher's parents, Judy and Ed, are played by Danielle Bannister and Jason Bannister. Rounding out the cast are Eric Sanders, Peter Conant, John Hamer, Beverly Mann, Monicque Deschamps and Sarah Joy, who each take on multiple roles.
