As Buffalo Gal Shuffles Off...

... we give you the last (poetic) words from Director George Werther... Buffalo Gal, won’t you come out tonight? Was the call to our intrepid six. There was Amanda and James, thespians two, Joining Jackie, Deb, Roy, Dan in the mix. They met at a theatre down Williamstown way To see if life could imitate art. Of course Debbie said that, as she only could, We thought it was a pretty good start. Now Debbie is Karolina, her first time on stage, And her Debbie performance was ace. She knew all her stuff about Dionysus et al, She even cleaned up sacred space. Then there’s Jackie, or Chris, our “director” supreme. ‘Bout Amanda she’s not very merry, Chekhov’s her thing, ‘bout orchards and stuff, Eve

We heard they had lots of cash on hand as the impacts of the Greek debt continue to bite. They'll have an election to contend with but all should be well before they fly home via Sri Lanka.

Buffalo Stampede!!

Tonight the warm, funny 'Buffalo Gal' opens! CHOOKAS to our amazing cast and backstage super crew !!! Well done to everyone who's had a hand in bringing this play to life. Director George Werther and Assistant Director Brian Christopher looked amazingly relaxed at all full dress rehearsals, and justifiably so as the show just sparkles.
