Spring 2015

Our Spring 2015 Production will be “Prelude to a Kiss,” a modern comedy by Craig Lucas.

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Director: Russell R. Greene


Synopsis of Play:

Craig Lucas’ acclaimed romantic comedy is an allegorical adult fairy tale with a twist. For Peter and Rita the course of their true love runs smoothly, one might even say magically, until a single kiss from an elderly uninvited wedding guest changes everything dramatically! From that moment forward a very confused Peter must figure out what happened and rescue the terrified Rita from some very dark and powerful magic. Will he succeed and will it be in time?

The cast:





Jason Fenton

25-35. Our Hero and Narrator. Peter is an earnest intelligent urban professional who is not looking for love but meets his soulmate Rita and gets bulldozed by it.


Madeline Ford

25-35. Our Heroine. Rita an upfront graphic designer/bartender. She also wasn’t looking for love but gets changed, inside and out by what happens to her when she marries Peter.

Old Man

Henry Kettell

65+. The inadvertent bad guy in our fairy tale. A man with a body that is breaking down, he has no idea that kissing the bride will give him another chance to be young again and he finds he is in no hurry to end this gender-bending do-over.

Dr. and Mrs. Boyle

Karl Schmith & Elaine Lundin

45-55. Rita’s normal supportive parents. Happy that their daughter has found the man she loves.


Chris Dumais

25-35. Peter’s buddy and Best Man. Easy going and a good friend.

Aunt Dorothy

Francine Davis

40-50. Rita’s flowery, fluttery, but loving aunt.


Francine Davis

40-50. The Old Man’s daughter, as confused as everyone else by what is going on (will be played by the actress playing Aunt Dorothy).

Uncle Fred


45-55. Rita’s funny uncle.

Tom/Jamaican Waiter

Michael Barbagallo

20’s-30’s. The quintessential and cosmopolitan bartender.


Regina Harris

35-65. The female minister at Peter and Rita’s wedding.
