Sofia Gadbois, Elliot Davis, Jared Gilman, and Charlie Rousmaniere
A huge shout out to co-directors Terry Sands and Mary Curtis and the outstanding cast and crew of the Annisquam Village Players for once again creating a fabulously wonderful summer theatre event. The cast is stellar, the production flawless, and every act left you wondering, how can they top that! The children in the audience were especially mesmerized, rooting audibly for Peter Pan (played by the tremendously talented Elliot Davis), and grumbling loudly at the villainous and hilarious Captain Hook (featuring Rick Gadbois). Three Cheers and a Standing Ovation for All!!!
It was a joy to see families working together both behind the scenes and performing on stage, including the funny, fun, and talented Rousmaniere’s Will, Charlie, Julia, and Jack (Dana, when will we see you on stage?); the always entertaining Rick Gadbois with his beautiful and accomplished daughter Sofia (what stage presence!); and the charming Think Pink Flamingo, Lidi Sands, with her adorable son, Baby Rabbit Alex Sands.
With an extra special shout out to Terry and Mary for their superb direction and casting, Krisitna for her beautiful choral direction, to Chicki and her crew for yet another year of ingenious sets, to Deej Viau for brilliant choreography, and to Cem Uslu and orchestra for exquisite music. And with a special note of appreciation to Linette and her helpers for their always kind assistance to all.
An extra, extra shout out goes to costume designer Hanna Anderson and the very adroit costume committee for their utterly fantastic ensembles. Every costume was pitch perfect and beautifully executed. Hanna grew up in Annisqaum and now lives in Boston. She is only 21 years old. We’ll be saying—we knew her when…
And, to AVP’s newest stage manager, GREAT JOB Deb Michel!
