Saying Goodbye to the 2007-08 Professional Resident Acting Company

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 11:45 pm

 Season 30 is starting to wind down, we have one last week of performances of Greater Tuna and one more week of theatreschool classes. It means it is time to start saying goodbye to our five member Professional Resident Acting Company.   Autumn, Charlie, Nicole, Patrick and Sam arrived in Charleston in the beginning of July 2007.  They drove from West Virginia, North Dakota, New Jersey, Illinois and Wisconsin and moved into new apartments, met new roommates and within 3 days were teaching more than 60 kids in SummerStage.What an amazing 10 months we have had together. From Gershwin at Folly to Tick Tick Boom, Beauty & the Beast and Fiddler on the Roof to our family shows James and the Giant Peach and A Year With Frog and Toad these young actors have delighted audiences and enhanced our 30th season.  So where do they go from here?    Autumn Seavey will be performing at Hershey Park for the summer and then relocating to the D.C. area. Charlie Retlaff will be touring with Olney Theatre’s National Players, performing Shakespeare around the country. Nicole Nicastro will spend the summer at The Great Plains Theatre in Abilene Kansas and at Maples Repertory Theatre in Macon, Missouri . In the fall she will tour with Veggie Tales Live as Bob the Tomato. Patrick Tierney will be moving to Chicago to pursue acting a bit closer to home.  Sam Weber will spend his summer at Maine State Musical Theatre and then perform with the Oregon Cabaret Theatre through the end of the year.   For ten months they have given Charleston Stage and the Charleston community dazzling  and moving performances.    Along the way hundreds of young people enjoyed the classes they led and taught.  We will miss them and wish them well! 

Goodbye from Marybeth Clark, Associate Artistic Director
