What do you think of yourself? Ever ask yourself that question? Actors do it all the time because you can’t ‘become’ someone else without changing your attitude, thoughts, actions, and beliefs.
How can you play stupid if you’re smart? Act mean if you’re sweet and compassionate? How long can you last speaking with a new accent? What about impersonating another character while being in character yourself? Sound confusing? You’ll see these performers take it all on and kill it…well kill someone at least.
Valerie Boyce (Rosa Lee Hayford) shares that she and Rosa Lee share a love for animals and kind-heartedness. Oh, and they also can both shoot a gun. Could her sweet and innocent act be fake?
Bridget Yeager (Vlouptua Amore) loves playing the bad girl of the show because she’s not in everyday life. The character is boy crazy and self-centered so unlike Bridget, but they do both love to act. Could this bad girl have turned really bad – bad enough to kill?
Diane Brosius (Beulah McKade) only got into her mean-to-the-bone character after repeated nagging from Director, Cheryl Crabb. Could this murder be done just because someone’s mean enough to kill?
Finally, there’s Clay Glenny (Reuben McKade) who’s smarter than his character acts. He’s sweet and good natured, but could he just be dumb enough (I mean smart enough) to commit murder?
I guess you’ll just have to wait and see which of the Hollar resident’s hidden personality and desires created a murderer.
Welcome to the Hollar! R-ACT Theatre Productions is back with another audience participation murder mystery. Cheryl Crabb thoroughly enjoyed directing this production and is thankful for such a participative cast that was willing to change their blocking many, many times. She also bribed them during rehearsals with food to keep everyone happy too.
When asked for some insider information on the show, Cheryl shared of the many laughs the whole group had during rehearsals. It also seems that there’s a lot of contradictions between actors’ personalities compared to their show characters. Quiet Bridget Yeager as Voluptua Amore is vamped up like never before while sweet and positive Diane Brosius plays the meanest of them all – Beulah McKade. There’s also sleazy Seymour Simpson played by Eric Armstrong. Other characters Cheryl describes are sweet Rosa Lee, laughable Reuben McKade, and dim-witted Zeke. Then there’s Luther Drummer – the Benedict Cumberbatch of the hollar.
All in all, it’s one motley group of misfits and someone’s gonna git it. Get your tickets today so you can find out who – and WHY!
