This British farce within a British farce has become a classic. This was the
first show to be performed on the Waterbury Festival Playhouse stage and it is
back with a vengeance. Doors, sardines and women in their underwear what more
could a theatergoer want. Go deep inside the backstage soap opera that is
live theater. Experience the other half of the show, the one only the actors
know about. This is a mad paced romp, and is appropriate for anyone who can handle
a little foul language and a lot of suggestive behavior.

playing in the dark backstage since high school and has stage
managed productions throughout college and then with the Valley
Players in Waitsfield, VT after moving here from upstate NY.
When not playing in the theater, Kathryn can usually be found
at her job as an environmental laboratory analyst in Williston
or singing with St. Michael's College Liturgical choir.
Occasionally she is even at home in Underhill with her husband,
Jake, and their houseful of loving critters. She thanks her
parents (both English teachers) for passing on their love of
theater and her husband for his loving patience.
has stepped on stage at Waterbury previously in Sisters Rosenzweig, Rough Crossing,
Monday will Kill You and most appropriately in the Drawer Boy. He also shows up
on Shelburne Players stage, at the Off Center, Middlebury Actors Workshop, and
any other venue in the local area in need. Great to be back as the
theatre comes back as well. Onward.

hails from Morrisville, Vermont and is no stranger to theater,
though she is a first-timer with the Waterbury Festival
Players. She dropped off the face of the local theater scene
for a while, but you may have seen her last summer as Dorothy
in Stowe's production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie." While
not on the stage, Caney is a student at the University of
Vermont, studying communication sciences & disorders and
currently starting the graduate school application
process (yikes!). She can often be found tinkering away on
some time-consuming arts and crafts project, or frolicking
merrily in amber fields of grain. She would like to thank her
goofball family for...well, everything
in her first show with the WFP, is very excited to be working with the Noises Off! crew!
She is no stranger to the stage catching the theatre bug as a little girl in Iowa, when her
dad let her tag along to rehearsal. She holds a BFA degree from the University of South Dakota,
where she studied theater. Her favorite roles include Sheila in 'A Chorus Line,' and Helena in
'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

is a retired, frustrated journalist who likes to stay busy ...
and loves fabrics. And history; and theatre.
is returning to WFP once again which can only mean one thing: He's a glutton for
punishment. Kidding aside, he loves the theater, loves the stage, and loves
working with such a fun and creative cast. He graduated from Johnson State College
in 2010 with a BA in theater arts, got married last year, and just had a baby
boy this past winter. From "Macbeth" to "Garry Lejeune," it has been a fantastic ride so far!

She is an ensemble member & dramaturge with The Roadsters

It all comes down to the show. All the building and rebuilding, planning and
organizing comes with one great reward. I get to sit with an incredibly talented
group of actors and we get to create a show. This is the third time I've directed this show
and it never ceases to amaze me how different they can be. We set a high bar in 2006 when Noises Off
opened the playhouse. Watch while we try to raise the bar yet again.
has appeared on the WFP stage every year since the
theater opened in 2006. She is happy to reprise the role of
Dotty in Noises Off, the theater’s inaugural production.
Ginger is very excited to play the role of
Joellen in Parasite Drag. This play unfolds like the petals
of a flower to reveal layer after layer of a dysfunctional
family bound by memories and desperate need. When she’s not
doing theater stuff, Ginger enjoys gardening, catching up with
her kids, spending time with her husband George and being a
2nd hand store junkie.
