The Skin

of our


by Thornton Wilder

The Star Players offered Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth for this year's fall 2005 production. Shown here are cast members during the third act: Mr. Antrobus (Kyle Joyner), Fitzpatrick (Ned Boreham), Mrs. Antrobus (Nathalie Stecko), Sabina (Rebecca Miller), Ivy (Leanna Plyler), Henry (Alex Mitts), Bailey (Jean Kroutil).

This three-part allegory of the cyclical fate of mankind is an epic comedy-drama, first presented in 1942, is still popular for its relevance.

The Antrobuses (Kyle and Nathalie) speak to the Muses (Jean, Kristen, Leanna) while they freeze from the ongoing Ice Age.

Gladys (Chelsea Bullock) is highly favored by Mr. Antrobus (Kyle) over her brother, Henry (Alex). who keeps trying to impress dad.

A Fortune Teller (Leanna) shows, in vision, Sabina (Rebecca) the world as it really is.

Gladys (Chelsea) and Maggie Antrobus (Nathalie) emerge from the cellar after the war.

Sabina (Rebecca) and George Antrobus (Kyle) in close proximity even after a devastating war.

Henry (Alex), now a general of war from the other side, attacks his dad, George (Kyle) to continue their bitterness. Maggie (Nathalie) intervenes.

These Star Players were on a roll this show, acting, painting sets...probably the bright colors inspired them.

The winter 2006 production:
Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians"

The Star Players cast of characters for Ten Little Indians included Leanna Plyler, Rebecca Miller, Nathalie Stecko, Kathy Burgos, Kristen Cowans, Wes Freeman, Alex Mitts, Ned Boreham, Billy Roach, Chris Ford, Mr. Orr director.

The play was another in-the-round production, the audience surrounding the actors on the stage in close proximity. Here Vera (Kathy Burgos), Madame Wargrave (Leanna Plyler), and Emily Brent (Rebecca Miller) weigh the evidence.

Chris Sedwick and Kristen Cowans played Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, the help in this house on an island setting.

Dr. Armstrong (Nathalie Stecko), Mr. Rogers (Chris Sedwick), Fred Narracott (Billy Roach), General Mackenzie (Chris Ford), Emily Brent (Rebecca Miller) and Vera Clathorne (Kathy Burgos) await the next murder.

Phillip Lombard (Alex Mitts) and General Mackenzie (Chris Ford) aren't trusting anyone.

Wargrave (Leanna) keeps Marston (Wes Freeman), Armstrong (Nathalie), and Vera (Kathy Burgos) on track to discover who killed Mrs. Rogers (Kristen).

Emily (Rebecca) holds a figurine while Mackenzie (Chris) remembers the past.

William Blore (Ned Boreham) should not be alone.

Wargrave (Leanna) comes out as the killer who holds the life of Vera (Kathy) at the end of her rope.

At least no one died for the curtain call.

Stage manager Leanna Lowry provided lights for the actors earlier, but Chris can't get a light now.
