Repeat Offenders Are Not So Offensive OR Blasts from the Pasts

February 13, 2012

New talent is the lifeblood of any good community theatre. But old friends are like tasty comfort food. When you see each other, it’s like coming home for both actor and director.

 

Marcella Borrowman

 

Marcella played Ouiser in Midvale Main Street Theatre’s production of Steel Magnolias last year. When I first saw her at auditions, I was so excited to work with her! She is a pro. She is a director’s dream. She is playing Scout’s neighbor, Miss Maudie Atkinson. She is on time, memorized, amiable, interesting, and engaging. From my place in the lighting booth, I watch her smile encouragingly at the kids. She is the storyteller and her down to earth portrayal draws me in every time.

Stone Kalisa

 

Stone Kalisa was in Hairspray! and All Shook Up! And since knowing him, he just gets taller and taller. He is playing Tom Robinson. I am so impressed with the way he understands the character. He is respectful and you can see that he and Atticus both have faith that the law and the truth are on their side. He just tells the truth. I love seeing this guy who was a kid play a mature man. (He’s still a kid, but he’s tall enough that he can PLAY a mature man…) He’s a talented actor and I’m happy he’s in the play.

 

Sterling Young

 

Sterling Young played the lead in last year’s production of All Shook Up! He has a fantastic voice and he can charm the pants off audiences. He’s hilarious back stage, but it’s been wonderful to see him find his serious chops with the role of Sheriff Heck Tate. Another director’s dream, he’s always there and willing to do anything that we need. I love working with him, and it’s not just because he’s sporting a handsome mustache. (I lie. It’s totally the mustache.)

Come and see us this week!! Get your tickets at the door for only $10. We’ll save you a drink and some delicious nachos!
