Just 12 actors will perform 57 roles in A.R. Gurney’s “The Dining Room,” in Riverside Military Academy’s Sandy Beaver Center Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18 and 1 p.m. Oct. 20. Admission is free.

Riverside cadet cast members include Elijah Holyfield, Demarko Hooper, Stephen Wechsler, Robinson Whitaker and Sekayi Williams.

Community cast members include Bailey Armour, Catherine Bailey, Claire Bailey, Elizabeth Bishop, Kayla DelPizzo, Ivy Gerrell and Libby Sayre.

The action of the play takes place in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household. Interrelated scenes that are sometimes funny, touching or rueful combine to create an in-depth portrait of the upper middle class.

The actors change roles, personalities and ages as they portray a wide variety of characters from little boys to stern grandfathers and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids.

The various scenes ultimately coalesce into a theatrical experience of compassionate humor and abundant humanity.
