Benchmark Theatre presents

A Kid Like Jake

February 16 – March 24, 2018

Benchmark Theatre announces the regional premiere of Daniel Pearle’s A Kid Like Jake as the first production of their sophomore season, opening February 16th. This also marks the first show in their new, permanent space, The Bench at 40W, formerly The Edge Theater.

Alex and Greg Wheeler have high hopes for their son Jake, a bright and precocious 4-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to GI Joe. As Alex and Greg navigate their roles as parents, a rift grows between them, one that forces them to confront their own concerns about what’s best for Jake, and each other. Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.

The cast under the Direction of Warren Sherrill features Antonio Amadeo, Adrian Egolf, Martha Harmon Pardee and Madison McKenzie Scott.

The production opens Friday, February 16th and runs through Saturday, March 24th with performances Friday – Saturday evenings at 8pm and Sunday evenings at 6pm. The production will take place at the company’s new home at 40W in Lakewood at 1560 Teller Street. Please visit to purchase tickets and send any inquiries to
