Stars of the show
Eunice Doman Myers was a Spanish professor and Associate Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Wichita State University. After her retirement, she and her husband moved back home to Lexington. She is a diehard Tar Heel fan, having completed her BA, MA and PhD at UNC-Chapel Hill. This is her first play since grade school, and she is thrilled to join the Hot Flash Players.
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.
Tabitha Stilwell Wilkins
Tabitha is thrilled to be performing again with the Hot Flash Players and appreciates any opportunity to grace the stage and give many the gift of a good belly laugh! She has been singing and entertaining since she was about 4 years old and never plans to lay her gifts to rest. She hails from Oak Ridge, NC where she lives with some pretty special people...her family! She'd like to thank all of you and mostly her family for allowing her to keep her gifts polished.
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.
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.
Falling in love with the magic of theatre as a child, Rita would sneak in to the theatre building at Dennison University in Granville, Ohio. With her best friend, she would create plays and stories based on the props and sets left out by the college students. One of her favorite things about theatre is the timelessness of a script and over the years has passed her love of theatre on to all four of her kids. Married to Scott for over 36 years, he is her biggest fan. After over 20 years of directing and stage managing, Rita has enjoyed reconnecting with her inner actress and appreciates the opportunity to participate in a Hot Flash Players production.
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!"
I would like to thank my family for supporting me in my theater endeavors. For years I have normally worked behind the scenes as stage manager or working lights or sound. I have done it all. This play allows me to work behind the scenes but yet be a part of the play. I like that! I especially would like to thank our “assistant director” for his insights as to how we should act. Thank you, Wyatt!
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.
Paula is a second time "stage manager" for the Hot Flash Players, a Real Estate Broker by profession, she fully enjoys the work of participating in these productions.
Without the support of her husband Jim, there would be no time for all this FUN!
