"Take Me Out" runs Sept. 29-Oct. 8 in the Judy Bayley Theatre.

The Nevada Conservatory Theatre opens its 2017-18 season Sept. 29 with Take Me Out by Richard Greenberg in the Judy Bayley Theatre. Andrew Paul directs.

Darren Lemming, the godlike center fielder of the New York Empires has announced he is gay. The friendships between the star and his diverse, but conservative, teammates become strained. When the talented, but aggressively bigoted, pitcher Shane Mungitt is added to the team, his racist and homophobic attitudes bring the simmering conflicts of the team to a tragic boiling point. Through the lens of America’s beloved pastime, playwright Greenberg probes the veins of racial and cultural tension that underpin our society and shows how the love of a game could unite, or divide, us all.

The cast includes Cameron Bass as Rodriguez; Shane Cullum as Toddy Koovitz; Brandon Dawson as Kippy Sunderstrom; Joshua Horton as Davey Battle; Marcus Martinez as Martinez; Alexander Medlicott as Jason Chenier; Jacob Moore as The Skipper/William H. Danziger; Mario Peoples as Darren Lemming; Garrison Quizon as Takeshi Kawabata; Darek Riley as Shane Mungitt; Equity Actor Marcus Weiss as Mason Marzac; Ryan Baker as U/S Mason Marzac; Johann Heske as U/S Sunderstrom; and Tavius Strickland as U/S Davey Battle.

The production and design team include scenic designer Trevor Dotson, lighting designer John Wampler, sound designer Rosalie Chaleunsouck, costume designer Judy Ryerson, technical director Brian Smallwood, dramaturg Lezlie Cross, and production stage manager Emma Slaney.
