That’s me with Natalie Newman, a very talented actress who had the lead role of Percy Sutton in the Mill Mountain Theatre production of “Spitfire Grill” in October 2008.
This is just clowning around for the camera.
I believe Ann Karner — who played Effie — took the photo.
I have never counted myself an actor.
So I was shocked when, in the fall of 2008, the artistic director at Mill Mountain Theatre in Roanoke, Va. called me to ask if I’d play a non-speaking part in the upcoming production of “Spitfire Grill.”
Sure, I’d be honored.
What I didn’t realize was this was a BIG non-speaking part — that of “The Visitor,” the long-lost son of the grill’s owner who went AWOL during Vietnam and has been living in the woods ever since.
There were actions to learn! Heck, I even had to learn to enter on a musical cue.
