Theatre Suburbia presents Kris Thompson’s Brand New Old-Fashioned Summer Meller Drammer. Winner of this year’s Meller Drammer Script Submission Contest, The Man in the Locket, contains all the necessary elements for summer time fun, a chaste young heroine in danger of falling for the villain’s dastardly deeds, only to be saved by the dashing young hero. Set in a small town circus, with all sorts of strange characters, some good and some evil, the show will take you through the paces of the traditional meller drammer fare.
The cast of characters are headed up by Adrian Collinson as the dastardly Sir Malcolm Tent a most villainous gentleman, Tyler Eckert as the dashing and heroic Flick, as well as KiKi Cummings as the chaste young Maggie Blessing, a damsel in distress. The cast is rounded out by Marylynn Coryell and Pamela Branstetter as Fester and Chester the Clowns, Victor Gomez as Apollo the Strong Man, Marylin Faulkner as Brunhilda the Bearded Woman, Jane Almquist and Ray Kroulik as Myra and Archie Sinclair, who seem to be a little too chummy with Malcolm Tent, Krystal Graham as Lydia the Fortune Teller, Mildred Johnson as Catalina the Russian-Romanian Bareback rider, Jack Coryell as Stephan Blessing and Ringmaster Charles played by Ian Collinson. All of these characters perform as Alice Smith masters the piano undertones of the show. Tech by Claudia Avila and Nicholas Garelick, and directed by Elvin Moriarty and Judy Reeves.
