CURTAIN CALL: 'Hay Fever' cast brings laughter with talent, practice

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

At this point, the guests begin to arrive.

The guests find themselves at the mercy of their eccentric hosts and, though at times they find the Bliss family antics amusing, more often they find them ranging from odd to downright terrifying.

Iconic Iona Holder is the director of this comic masterpiece and has been putting the cast through their paces. She has really been emphasizing the importance of every word that Coward wrote and that the play needs to be performed as he meant it to be.

In other words, learn your lines and don’t rely on ad-libbing!

But she has a great group to work with. I’ve mentioned some of the cast members in previous columns but let’s summarize again.

The Bliss family is played by Tina Pittman, Steve Elliott-Gower, Maria Barber and Clay Garland.

Sasha Schafler, Scott Dillard, Robbie Lewis and Alexa Williams play the frazzled guests while Jamie Walsh Ferreira comes in as the house keeper (who used to be Judith’s former dresser).

Tickets are $10 for general admission (or whatever rank you hold including civilian) and are available now. Just head to www.milledgevilleplayers.org to purchase tickets in advance.

It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s fun! Each ticket is good for one performance on any of the four show dates. In other words, you don’t have to predict which showing you’ll attend. Tickets are good for any of the Thursday through Sunday performances.

And if you purchase your tickets in advance, it will save you time at the box office when you arrive.

Of course, tickets will also be available at the box office each night. In fact, if you are a student with a valid ID, you will be allowed to enter the Bliss family country home for only $8. That special deal is ONLY available at the box office the night of each performance.
