The presentation of Box and Cox has been a tradition at Thalian Hall for 35 years. All this time, Executive Director Tony Rivenbark has directed and performed the role of Mr. Cox, with a variety of memorable actors playing Mr. Box and Mrs. Bouncer (including Tommy Hull, Don Ansell, Jason Hatfield and Suellen Yates). Rivenbark is only directing this round, casting Shane Fernando as Cox, Paul Teal as Box, and Caitlin Becka as Mrs. Bouncer.
Tony Rivenbark is the Executive Director of Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts. He was recently honored with the creation of a Roman bust now on display in the lobby, in recognition to his 35 years of service to the hall. Rivenbark tells us about the Main Attraction Series that just launched a new season. Details at ThalianHall.org
