has a love of theatre that began her senior year of high school as a member of the tech crew on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Coat
at Gould Academy, Bethel, ME. Years later, she became involved with the Lamoille Union Middle School drama program, helping
out wherever needed, and was officially dubbed Props Mistress for Annie Jr. Lisa joined WFP in 2014. She especially loves
hunting for obscure items and making the really unique ones by hand.
is excited about her fifth season with WFP. She has been
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.
is thrilled to be making her debut with Waterbury Festival Playhouse. She has
performed with Lyric Theatre, Stowe Theatre Guild, Shelburne Players, Lamoille
County Players, Little City Players, and Essex Community Players. Her favorite
roles include Roz from Moon over Buffalo, Rita from Lucky Stiff, Portia from
Cinderella, wife to her best friend and husband Mike, and mother to her two
amazing children, Bryce and Gabriel. Thank you Ali for always making that
drive to see me on stage!

Gene in Parasite Drag and Lloyd in Noises off. He was last seen in the Burlington
area doing a double-dose of Shakespeare - first as Prospero in Essex Community
Players' production of The Tempest and then as Lord Capulet in Vermont Shakespeare
Company's production of Romeo and Juliet. Prior to those roles, he played the
inscrutable-yet-menacing Martin Dart in Moxie Productions' The Receptionist. Other
favorite roles in Vermont include Sidney Bruhl in Deathtrap, Bruce in Beyond Therapy

Normally a resident of New York, Hugh loves to spend as much time as possible
hiking and skiing in Vermont!
is from Morrisville, Vermont and has appeared in several local theatrical productions
much to the chagrin of his ever-suffering wife. Hobbies include stopwatch operations,
insulting chickens and staying out of the court report. He would like to thank
President Obama for ruining the country and God for allowing pickled beets to be a thing.
It’s great to be on board for another season with the WFP. Rick’s passion continues
in set design/decoration creating a different place, time and mood has always been
challenging and exciting. You can check out Rick’s artistic services, stage works,

with such a wonderful cast and crew. She holds a BA in Fine Arts: Theater from
St. Michael's College. Other companies she has performed with include Lost Nation

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. Run for your Wife is just one of those
fun silly plays that makes for a great night out. Please laugh and enjoy and watch
while we try to raise the bar yet again.
is honored and bemused to be part of this eccentric gathering of talents before you this evening.
She would like to thank her family for fostering her furtive imagination from a young age,
and her husband for always being proud of this weird thing that consumes
so much of her time. Also for eel. Eel is great. Thank you, dear audience member,
for your time and energy this evening. And now for something completely different...
