Stars of the show

Cornelia Beck Briggs

God, Family, Friend, Pets, Theatre, her Husband's love and scenery design and an abode by the water - these are a few of Cornelia's favorite things. The acting and singing bug hit her when she was three and has picked up speed adding writing and directing along the way. Amateur to professional and back to amateur again (it’s just easier and more fun!). She is one of the founding members of the Hot Flash Players. "Enough about me; I sort of convinced my family that my behavior was normal and bless their hearts, they have been very supportive!"

Wendy Spry Lerch

Wendy is a member of the Hot Flash Players. She is a lifelong actress (just ask her parents and siblings). Wendy has been in too many productions to count but some of those include: Hello Dolly, The Sunshine Boys, Grease, Nunsence, Dixie Swim Club and Faith County just to name a few. Wendy is a Special Education Teacher and Mother. She has enjoyed working with the fabulous women on this hysterical production.

Bonnie Byerly

Bonnie has been a teacher in Davidson County for the last 13 years. This is her first production with the Hot Flash Players. Previous performances include daily acts to keep a class full of second graders entertained! She is excited and grateful for the opportunity to bring Libby to life.

Windy Anderson

Windy Anderson is a Hot Flash Player. She has been a member for quite a while now. Windy is normally not on stage but behind the scenes. Windy is a “Jackie of all trades”...she does it all, sound, lights, stage managing, and directing. She got the acting bug from her late mother in law, Rebecca Anderson and husband Donald Anderson. Windy would like to dedicate her
performance to their memory.

Jason Roland 

Jason Roland is thrilled to be working again with his friends in the Hot Flash Players. As a director, he has worked with them on the Lexington premiere performance of The Untimely Demise of Big Earl Jessup and Scarletdale (which he would like to humbly point out, he also wrote). As a performer, he has appeared in the Hot Flash Player’s productions of Radio TBS, A Tuna Christmas and Smoke on the Mountain among others. He is a founding member of the sketch comedy groups The Sloan and The Rabbit Brothers and he writes material and performs stand-up for the comedy collective Comics at Fault. Jason would like to thank the wonderful cast and crew of this show and all of their hard work and for putting up with him at rehearsal. He would also like to thank Jesse for putting up with him at home.
