Several Footlighters members are working on the Gazebo Players' production of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale this summer. The show is directed by Marianne Phinney. Christine Grudinskas is the Assistant Director. The cast includes Footlighters Barbara Schapiro as Paulina, Cameron Small as the Clowne and the Sound Designer, and Cynthia Small as Old Shepherd. Past member Ben Madeiros plays Polyxenes. The sound operator is Tony Liapis.
The show will be performed in three parks this summer: Medfield's Gazebo Park, Choate Park in Medway, and Bird Park in Walpole. For more information, see the Gazebo Players' website at www.gazeboplayers.org.
Paul Collins and former Footlighter Diana Doyle are part of the cast of Lend Me a Tenor at The Center for the Arts in Natick (TCAN). Paul plays Tito and Diana plays, surprisingly enough, Diana. The show runs June 13 - June 27.
