Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven and settles down to write her autobiography. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy, omnipresent neighbors is a different matter. In an attempt to shoo them away, and gain some privacy, Myra invents a mad, homicidal sister—who is kept locked in an upstairs room, but who occasionally escapes long enough to scare off uninvited visitors. The ruse works well, at first, but complications result when the local handyman develops an affection for "Sister Sadie" (really Myra in a fright wig) and some of the more officious ladies decide it is their Christian duty to save the poor demented Sadie's soul. In desperation Myra announces that her imaginary sibling has suddenly gone off to Boston—which brings on the sheriff and the suspicion of murder! Needless to say, all is straightened

She has also appeared in local productions of Leading Ladies (Meg), Lend Me A Tenor (Maria), Dixie Swim Club (Lexie), The Odd Couple (Gwendolyn) and Anything Goes (Chorus and John). Another BIG Shout Out to all the The Trilogy Players for helping me live out my dream.


  



Ron Foltz

Ron Foltz is a relative newcomer to the Arizona stage, with most of his experience gained at theaters in the midwest. Locally, Ron has worked with director Don Bluth at Don Bluth Front Row Theater in Scottsdale, and most recently at iTheater Collaborative, performing in The Exonerated under the direction of Charles St. Clair. Ron has also performed in two reader's theater productions of the original play, If Loving You Is Wrong, by Arizona playwright Ioannis Skiotes. When not acting, Ron is an accomplished musician and vocalist and was the music supervisor for “The Last Dance,” a short film selected for the 2013 Cannes Short Film Corner. Ron would like to thank his mom and good friends Julie, Paul and Sean for giving him inspiration, support and assistance throughout the years.


Deb King

Both a newcomer to Arizona and a first time performer with Ghostlight, Deb King is hardly a new comer to the stage, having performed extensively in Illinois. A few of her favorite productions are Noises Off, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Nunsense, Cemetery Club, and Over the River and Through the Woods. Since moving to Arizona about a year ago, she became
an active member of Theater West in Sun City West. She can be seen in their upcoming productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat and Plaza Suite. She is thrilled to be a part of Ghostlight and working with this talented group of performers.


Elanna Donovan

Elanna Donovan has many years of acting experience on stage, in film and tv projects. Stage credits include Lost in Yonkers, Steel Magnolias, Glorias!, Shadow Box, Driving Miss Daisy, Talking With, a Botox babe with psychotic tendencies in the Good Body and most recently Exit Laughing. It's good to be performing again at Ghostlight with old and new friends.




William Stollar

Bill is a veteran of more than two dozen performances in venues from variety shows to stage plays to "Reader's Theater." He especially likes those in which he gets to show off his ability to affect dialects and play unusual characters. He even got a walk-on bit part in a movie starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. Although now on the far side of eighty years old, he is still hopeful to one day get to play the "hero" character who gets to kiss the girl. Good luck with that.



Fran Rose

Francine was born in New York City and received her degree in Theater Arts from Hunter College. One of the founding members of the Arizona Traditions Theater Club, she performed in The Curious Savage, Harvey, A Fine Monster You Are, Meanwhile Back on the Couch, and Bull in a China Shop. She had the opportunity to direct and perform in “Old Time Radio”, and The Wally Sherman Show, written by her husband, Robert Rose, as well as, direct the female version of The Odd Couple and A Fine Monster You Are. She has had the privilege of appearing in eight productions of Ghostlight Theater including the premiere production of Arsenic and Old Lace, as well as, the American premier of Alzheimers, The Musical, and in Moon Over Buffalo, playing Ethel. This is her second production with Ghostlight as a director, having previously directed Dial M for Murder. She is thrilled to be working with this talented cast and with all of Ghostlight family. Thank you Bob for your love and support.


Catie Hammann

Catherine Hammann is so excited to make her debut at Ghostlight! This is her sixth show as an Assistant Director. She is honored to work with Fran and learn from these experienced actors. She loves spending time with her husband and step daughter Kaylee. She is looking forward to many more shows!
