Niagara Gazette — In “Spirits of 1813,” which is a free outdoor production being held July 19 and 20 and 2 p.m. July 21 (at which attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs) the young actors enhance the cast of The Marble Orchard Players of the Lewiston Arts Council, which is sponsoring the event.
”I am most excited about the teens and the children in the cast,” said Eva Nicklas of the Arts Council. “They’ve made such a commitment between all the rehearsals and learning their lines.” The other local young actors in the production are Brodie McPherson, a 2013 Lewiston Porter grad who is planning to study theater and Geri Posa, also a theater student.
Who knows where it all will lead for the young actors? Some are already on their way.
Faith Walh is starring in “Madeline’s Christmas” at the Theater of Youth during the holidays, and both Mill.
Gentile, a Lewiston-Porter High School junior, is directing an upcoming production for the Royal Princess Festival at the Lewiston Library. Says Nicklas: “I expect to see him on the Broadway stage.”IF YOU GO n WHAT: Sound of Music n WHERE: Artpark, Lewiston n WHEN: The musical opened Thursday and runs through Friday n MORE INFO: Call the Artpark box office by phone at 716-754-4375 or visit online at www.artpark.net.
