West Michigan Wednesday: “Death of a Salesman” at Central Park Players in Grand Haven 

One of the things I love most about my home is the location! I love living in West Michigan and enjoy many activities around town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that this area has to offer.

Join Grand Haven’s Central Park Players for this weekend’s production of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”

Here is the blurb from the website:

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!

This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling young adult book, and has become a holiday staple for groups across the United States! Features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas carols, and a lot of laughs!

One of the things I love most about my home is the location! I love living in West Michigan and enjoy many activities around town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that this area has to offer.  

“Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” opens this weekend at Central Park Players in Grand Haven. I am so thrilled to be playing Frances in  this production alongside a very talented and hilarious cast.   

 As always, here is the blurb:

“During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.” 

The show runs October 9-11 and 17-18 at Lakeshore Middle School in Grand Haven. For more information and to purchase tickets, call: 616-850-6566

I’d love to see you there!

Everyone will be performing a special number, including The Mistletones, Suzy and the Snowflakes, the Reindeer, the Elves, Mrs. Claus, and yes, of course, Santa himself! It’s an evening of entertainment and fun, complete with staging notes and two commercials.

The classic animated television special, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS comes to life in this faithful stage adaptation where Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the other Peanuts grapple with the real meaning of Christmas.” 

Also, I am playing Lucy in the production of “A Charlie Brown Christmas!” It has been so much fun bringing these classic characters to life! Rachel from Rachel Kaye Photography stopped by a rehearsal last week and snapped some fun shots. She was so kind and let me share a few sneak peaks with you today!!
