“Rock Nativity” is a musical Christmas play.
Marti Dixon appears to perpetually be on stage. Sunday, she wrapped up two weeks at the Ashtabula Arts Center in “Our Town.” Tonight she jumps into “Tom Sawyer.”
But she isn’t worrying about mixing up the two, decidedly different plays.
“I’m that character when I’m on stage,” she said. “A line out of ‘Our Town’ would not make a lick of sense.”
Joseph Damore wanted to play Huckleberry Finn so badly he wrote it on his audition slip.
“I’ve read ‘Tom Sawyer’ and ‘Huckleberry Finn’ before. I thought it would be cool to play Huck Finn,” Joseph said.
Why “Tom Sawyer?”
“I suggested it to the director. It is fun, family theater. That’s what the playhouse is about, fun, family theater,” said Perts.
She said using new directors and actors help the theater grow. Audiences have been larger than anticipated.
“New directors, new cast members bring in more people. The longer we’re around, the more people come.”
Harbor Playhouse will next tackle William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.”
The play will be presented in August. Tryouts are June 1 from noon to 2 p.m. and June 3 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Tickets for “Tom Sawyer” are $5 at the door. Visit www.harborplayhouse.org. Email email@example.com.
