What do you hope the audience takes away from this show?
I hope that The Game's Afoot provokes the same laughs for the audience, along with some serious frights and gasps that it provided to me when I first read the play.
How did you get involved with theatre and LTA?
I have personally been involved with theatre since I was in first grade when I played a blade of grass in the spring pageant at St. Mary Gate of Heaven Catholic School in Queens, NY. What is it they say? The roar of the crowd, the smell of the grease paint? I was hooked then and there. So here it is, 57 years later and I'm still doing theatre. In 1984, I came to the Washington area to live. It was LTA where I first did theatre in this area and to this day, I consider coming home whenever I do a show here.
What advice do you have for others wanting to get involved with theatre?
No matter what your interests, there is a place in the theatre that will satisfy anything you can imagine. Don't be shy! Call a community theatre and tell them you are interested in working on a show. Believe me, they will be happy to have you!
