Limelight Theatre Announces Cast of Second Samuel | Arts & Culture
Limelight Theatre of St. Augustine announced the cast of its next main stage production--Second Samuel, a heartwarming comedy set in the Deep South. Directed by Stephen Pigman, this play by Pamela Parker is about family, community, diversity and strength with a unique blend of Southern charm and humor. The play's title, Second Samuel, comes from the name of the rebuilt town of Samuel, Georgia (General Sherman burned the first one to the ground during the Civil War), where the men spend their leisure time at the local watering hole and the women are found gossiping at the beauty salon.
Set in the 1940s, the inhabitants of this sleepy southern town prepare for the funeral of one of their most beloved citizens. But their serenity is suddenly shattered when dark secrets are revealed and the folks of Second Samuel are in for a summer they will never forget!
The cast of the show is:
· Chris Pritchard as B-Flat, the heart and soul of the play and of the town
· Everette Street as Frisky, the best good old boy you'll ever meet
· Patric Robinson as US, a black man raised in the south by a well-to-do white family
· John Willet as Mansel, a harmless redneck who tends to find trouble and likes to have a drink
· Roger Burgett as Mr. Mozel, the town bigot who is somewhat benign, but not completely
· Sally McGhee as Omaha, the cute, stylish "boss" of the women in town
· Linda Mignon as Jimmy Deanne, a vain and bitchy beauty queen
· Krista Tutor as Ruby, a worker at the local hair salon who is sweet, plain and demure until she takes a well-deserved whack at Jimmy Deanne
· Megan Peek as Marcela, a good-natured, hard-working country woman
· Jack Wilbern as Doc, one of the town's leaders who knows everybody's secrets but, because he's a gentleman, he's not telling
· Ryne Renz as June, the town's prissy and a bit absent-minded undertaker
