Chris here! I wanted to take this time to tell you a little bit about the actors in Lovesick. We have a pretty talented and funny cast in this comedic thriller and we start our engines on this play VERY soon. Two faces in this cast will be familiar to the ASF community and the other is a fresh face, new to the SWP game.
First up, we have the one and only, Alice Sherman, playing the character of Amy who is the wife of the character Billy in the play. Many patrons and regular audience members will remember the lovely Miss Alice in the production of Mary Poppins about two summers ago as the title character. Miss Sherman has also played Belle for the past couple of years in Geoffrey Sherman’s beloved adaption of A Christmas Carol. Currently, Alice plays Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Knowing Alice on a personal level, she is a gracious and caring actress who is always there to listen and truly has a heart of gold. Without giving too much away, the character of Amy is someone who you could argue cares a little TOO MUCH… So much in fact that the idea of murder is ignited in her brain and works it’s way through to her very soul.
Second, we have Jackson Thompson, playing the character of Billy, Amy’s husband. Jackson has been seen on the ASF stage in Merry Wives of Windsor where he played Fenton. He is currently in A Midsummer Night’s Dream playing Demetrius. On a personal level, Jackson’s wit is extraordinary and he is a very fast and quick thinker, which will come in hand playing the character of Billy. Again, without revealing too much, Billy has some secrets of his own that he will attempt to cover up real fast.
Last up, we have newcomer to the SWP game, Lilly Wilton, as the character of Linda. You all have met Lilly already via the previous SWP blog on Lovesick, but I’d like to tell you a little bit more about her. Lilly, like me, is a part of the amazing acting intern program here at ASF. She has been seen this year in the following productions: Comedy of Errors (Luciana), Cinderella (playing the title character herself!), Christmas Carol (Fan), and Midsummer Night’s Dream (Peaseblossom). Lilly is a super gifted and caring individual who will bring everything she has into the role of Linda.
So that is our brilliant cast! See ya on the blog space tomorrow!
