The Windham Theatre Guild kicks off their Fall season with another winning comedy production. It’s Bedtime Stories written by Norm Foster, Canada’s most popular playwright, known for his familiar Neil Simon comedy style… opening Friday, September 14th at the Burton Leavitt Theater. WTG first introduced area theatre goers to Norm Foster with the production of Opening Night. In Bedtime Stories, Norm Foster does it again. The talented cast members create 15 characters in 6 vignettes.
In a series of scenes connected by time, place, and a most unusual radio broadcast, you follow interweaving characters in their comic struggle to find the meaning of love. The content of the show is meant for mature audiences.
Directing again for the Windham Theatre Guild is Michele Abbazia Gagne, a Willimantic resident and ECSU alumni. Last September, Michele directed the hit comedy Don’t Dress For Dinner for the Guild. Michele studied at Circle in the Square in New York City and has performed and directed in various areas of New England as well as NYC. She has performed in many Guild shows, and has been seen most recently on stage in Steel Magnolias, The Importance of Being Earnest and in the world premiere of Blessed Event. Starring in Bedtime Stories is Michael Siddell, Mike Lessard, Marina Cone, Jim Hetrick, Seth Roberts, Miriam Drew, James York, Chris LaCour, Anna Armagno, and Emma White.
