This is a Starlight UNdinner Theatre show — or “Starlight Lite” as Linda is calling it. Only $20 includes a dessert buffet and beverages - AND a real “garage sale” fundraiser before and after this one-hour show. There will also be an author/cast/director “talk back” after each show (except Saturday the 14th because I’ll be at the Riverwalk party!)
As you may know, I also design the program for Starlight, and it warmed my heart to read the comments in the actors’ bios and the director’s note:
“Thanks to Jane for trusting me and Starlight with her beloved play. It is very dear to my heart for many reasons, and I am so excited to be on the other side of the footlights directing it 19 years after playing Rag Baby! Chris and Angie could not be more perfect as Teddy and Rag Baby. An absolute joy to work with, they bring great ideas, energy and depth to their roles... It is a beautiful allegory about loving, taking risks and living life to the fullest, versus succumbing to your fears, living in isolation and avoiding love and life’s adventures.” - Linda Granger
“Any show where I can work with Angie is a treat. She’s exceptional on the stage, professional in her preparation and puts you at ease during the performance. Thanks to Jane Zussman for the delightful script, Linda for trusting me with Teddy, and for her friendship….I hope everyone will enjoy the show and take away from it all of the wisdom that is so evident.” - Chris Klaver
"At the very first reading, I became quite enamored with this beautiful little tale that Jane Zussman has created. I laughed, I cried and as a grown-up that’s not ashamed to admit she still talks to her dolls, I fell in love with these two characters. What an honor it is to work within the parameters of all this local creativity! May your hearts always hold tight to their childlike wonder no matter how battered and torn they may be.” - Angela Dill
