The Vagabond Players
By Daniel J.Sullivan
Directed by Miles Lavkulich
Holiday cheer abounds in this hilarious, madcap comedy. Set behind the scenes of a struggling theatre’s annual slapdash production of A Christmas Carol, Inspecting Carol tells what happens when an aspiring actor of somewhat questionable talent arrives to audition and is mistaken for the inspector from the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor, he is given a role, and the accident-filled, error-laden production that follows will leave audiences rolling in the aisles. Comical characters, witty repartee and ingenious jokes! Don’t miss it!
Directed by Miles Lavkulich, Inspecting Carol stars Michelle Berg as Zorah Bloch, the founding director of The Soapbox Playhouse and Richard Wiens, Sheldon Landry, Denise Brookson, Diane Tzingounakis, and Deborah Merrick as the quintet of highly individualistic characters who make up the founding members of the society. Corrine Out plays Karen Emery, the beleaguered managing director who quails under Zorah’s thumb, and Jeremy Heynen is Wayne Wallace, the aspiring actor with no training and even less talent who ends up being cast in the show. Faith Hurd takes the role of Betty Andrew, the real inspector for the National Endowment for the Arts, and the talented cast is rounded out by James Hughes, Wynn Siu and Veronica Berg in a variety of equally amusing roles. Comical characters, witty repartee and ingenious jokes! Don’t miss it!
