Covid-related delays and frigid temperatures could not dampen the spirits of the actors auditioning for Pat Cook’s “Those Crazy Ladies In The House On The Corner.”
From those auditions, a high-caliber cast was chosen by Director Steve Fillmore and Assistant Director Peg McConnell.
“Crazy Ladies” is the story of three eccentric, nearly hermit-like sisters who happily live in their family home. Are they really crazy or do they live life on their own terms?
Portraying the sisters are three talented Playhouse Civic Theatre veterans. Dora is the ornery one, Lydia is the reasonable one and Maggie is the ethereal one. The sisters are visited regularly by Doc Lomax (Rich Riedmaier) who cares for the sister’s health and welfare.
And, that is not an easy job!
Doc introduces nurse Jean (CJ Perry) into the household. Is she there to take care of the sisters or is she keeping a secret?
You’ll also meet Lydia’s selfish son Phillip (Rich Kihlken) and Jean’s boyfriend Calvin (Devon Perry) both adding fun and drama for the family. Portraying Jessie, a mysterious visitor, is Trish McCartney. What is her secret? And rounding-out the cast is the always delightful Dre Wallace playing Blue the delivery person.
