More Offerings from Actors Core

by Press Release | Mar 5, 2006
More Offerings from Actors Core “Anton in Show Business” will be the fourth production from Actors Core. Last season brought “Greater Tuna” which was performed at the Ritz Theatre in Haddon Township and Triple Threat in Cherry Hill. An evening of one acts, “Lives of the Great Waitresses” played at the Sketch Club in Woodbury.

This season’s line up includes “Anton in Show Business” this March and April, “Beyond Therapy” in July and the fall brings a reprise of “Greater Tuna.”

This season's productions are being hosted by the Road Company, the resident theater company at the Grand Theater.

“They graciously opened up their schedule to allow us to perform there. We hope to continue our professional relationship with the Grand. It is also our vision to continue to perform at various theatres in the Delaware Valley as we are a travelling regional theater company.” say Randy Peterson, co-director of “Anton in Show Business.”

This savvy backstage comedy follows the adventures of a self-centered television actress, a jaded New Yorker and an enthusiastic ingénue who all arrive in Texas to star in a production of Anton Chekhov’s play “Three Sisters.”

“Anton in Show Business” takes you backstage in a fast-paced and remorseless look into the world of theater and it’s eccentric directors, inept producers, surgically beautified actors and egotistical critics. The all female cast of seven plays multiple roles including men in this hilarious comedy.

Cast members include the following local artists: T-Anne, etc. is being played by Brenda Kale of Marlton., Holly is played by Actor’s Core member Heather Mack of Oaklyn, Casey is Laura Bongiovanni of Carneys Point, Lisabette is played by Alissa Nelson of Philadelphia, Joby is played by Jennifer Walker of Collingswood, Actress #1 is played by Kristine Elizabeth Miller of Blackwood, Actress #2 is played by Kelly Aulenbach of Bellmawr.

The production is being co-directed by Actor’s Core members Ray Croce of Cherry Hill and Randy Peterson of Westville. Ray is working on helping the actors develop their characters through improvisation and Randy is focusing on the deeper character work by developing their motivation and relationship to each other.

Technical direction by Ray Croce, Jr. of Cherry Hill. Costume design by Heather Mack of Oaklyn.

Performances of Anton in Show Business will be held March 24, 25, 31 and April 1, at 8pm at The Grand Theater, 405 S. Main Street, Williamstown. For tickets and information, call (856) 728-2120.
