How did you first become involved with CTH? How many shows have you been involved with?
My friend from high school (from so many years ago) was involved in a couple of productions here and convinced me to audition.
I have been in over a half-dozen Radio Show presentations, but this is my first Main Stage production.
What are some favorite roles or theater experiences from the past, either with CTH or other groups?
I have done TV, movies, commercials, but this group of one-act comedies is my favorite, by far.
What do you like most about being involved with CTH?
A really good group of people. The folks behind the scenes (set design and build, costumes, lighting and sound techs, props, stage crew, producers and directors) are AMAZING!
Tell us about “The Love Machine” and why you like this show.
We are doing five one-act comedies from the writings of David Ives. They each have a different tone. I relish the opportunity to do about 10 distinct voices and characterizations.
What can the audience expect with this production?
Laughs and the exhilaration of live theater. Also expect safety and health precautions. Seating is limited due to COVID distancing, so get your tickets now!
