Director Linda Bower are pleased to announce the cast of the upcoming “Moon Over the Brewery” by Bruce Graham.
The role of Miriam, a waitress/artist, will be portrayed by Melissa Joseph of Fremont. Her precocious daughter Amanda will be played by Kaitlyn Phillips of Woodville. Tim Bolton of Fremont and Cyrus Foos of Gibsonburg have been cast in the roles of Walter, Miriam’s boyfriend, and Randolph, Amanda’s childhood imaginary friend, respectively.
Phillips and Joseph are both making FCT main season debuts in this production. Phillips, 17, is actively involved in her drama club at Woodmore High School, and most recently appeared at FCT as Teen Fiona in Fremont Community Teen Theatre’s “Shrek the Musical” this past summer. Joseph, a member of the National Guard and Service Coordinator for a senior living complex, enjoyed a return to FCT during Play in a Day 2013, and most recently was part of the stage crew for “The Drowsy Chaperone” in May 2014.
Bolton and Foos are well-known veterans of the FCT stage. Bolton has been on and off stage for over 50 roles at FCT stage in his spare time, most recently appearing in a leading role in November’s production of “Be My Baby”. While only 18 years old, Foos has also appeared in numerous roles on the FCT main stage, most notably as the young leads in “Over the Tavern” and “Our Town”. He also most recently appeared in FCTT’s “Shrek the Musical” in the beloved role of Donkey.
Director Linda Bower says, “This warm and funny play will touch the hearts of all who have ever felt lonely or different.”
In addition to the four actors, a great deal of original artwork will be seen onstage in this production. Director Bower and costumer Sue Stotz designed and pieced the quilt, “Miriam’s Dream,” which will be featured in the show and then raffled off at the close of the production. In addition, Bower’s husband Michael has been busy creating the many paintings which will be displayed on set.
Produced with permission from Dramatists Play Service, Inc., “Moon Over the Brewery” will be presented January 16-18 and 23-25, 2015.
