This year's Gaslight Teen show is a comedy called Everybody Love Opal, directed by new Gaslight Teen sponsor, Tammy Wilson and Assistant Directed by Bailey Wilson. Bailey Wilson is also acting as set designer. This is Tammy's directorial debut at the Gaslight, having Assistant Directed The Audition, which was taken taken to the Oklahoma Community Theatre Association's annual competition.  
Opal Kronkie is a middle aged recluse that lives in a tumbledown mansion near the city dump. The general disarray of her establishment is aggravated by the fact that she "collects things" - anything she can tote home in her little red wagon, she does. Hilarity ensues when three up to no good scam artists on the run from the police show up at her house and concoct an elaborate scheme to get their hands on Opal's money. There are lessons to be learned for everyone, though.
The cast: Gabi Nelson, Joshua Beebe, Nolan Riggin, Carol Jarrett, Wyatt Wilson, Peyton Wilson and Simon the Cat.
