Corbin Bleu (One Life to Live, High School Musical), Colleen Zenk (As the World Turns, Thurston) and Randy Brooks (The Young and the Restless, Another World) lead the cast of Michael Slade's newest play, "Family Shots," making its world premiere this week at The Loft Theatre in Dayton. The production runs January 22 – February 8, 2015 and will be directed by The Human Race's producing artistic director, Kevin Moore.

Charming family patriarch Sam Baker (Brooks) lies in a hospital bed, recovering from an apparent heart attack, but his wife, Marsha (Zenk), won’t stop making the crisis all about her—much to the dismay of their son, Aaron (Bleu). The young photographer wonders why his parents even stay together while he and his husband, Malcolm, deal with their own issues as newlyweds. Intimate, yet universal,

"Family Shots" is a funny and touching comedy about marriage—its joys, challenges and responsibilities—and what's worth fighting for.
