Malani Hoffpauir is from Acadiana and has done several shows across the state! She has a master’s degree in gifted education and is soon to have a doctorate in education. She teaches talented theatre and academically gifted students in Vermilion Parish. Being onstage has always been a part of her life, and she is excited to be able to continue that adventure here! She was last seen onstage as choreographer and performer for Pippin. You might have seen her dancing in local productions of The Producers, Legally Blonde, Rock of Ages, and more! Thank you Mitchell and Hollie for allowing me to be a part of this journey. A big thank you to everyone working so hard on this production, and thank you to all of you coming to support us and the arts!
Trevor Duhon (Simon)
Trevor Duhon is returning to the stage for his 7th live performance. After getting the experience of working behind the scenes on Wokna Jr. & seeing all the work that goes into bringing these wonderful works to life from the minds of the directors, Trevor is ready to return to the spotlight & stretch his acting muscles some more. And what better way to lure him back to the stage than with his favorite genre: a murder-mystery! Who knows, maybe after this, he'll finally admit that what he really wants to be is a private detective & start that career path...then again, maybe he should just stick to acting like a detective & leave the real work to the professionals. Haha! Trevor is a working actor from Erath, LA who graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a major in Moving Image Arts. He has starred in various locally filmed commercials, short films, feature films, and television shows, and he is very much looking forward to seeing if audiences can figure out the mystery of the murders awaiting them in The Game's Afoot!
Beth Finch (Madge)
Beth Finch is excited to be returning to Abbey Players once again. Previous Abbey productions include Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike (Sonia), A Southern Belle Primer (the Hostess), and A Carol for Tiny Tim (caroler) and Assistant Director for Sorry, Wrong Chimney. She has also played with IPAL, most recently in A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, with Streva Productions in Drinking Habits 1 and 2, and with CYT in Inspector Hound. Last year, Beth directed Marvelous Wonderettes for Streva Productions at Cité des Arts and wrote and directed A Cajun Christmas for First Baptist Church, Lafayette. Beth feels that it's always fun to be back on stage, but the greatest joy is the three grandchildren that keep her smiling.

Her favorite non-musical roles have been the Stage Manager in Our Town (LRE-ACA), “Miss” Potter in It’s a Wonderful Life (IPAL) and, most recently, Miss Brent in And Then There Were None (LRE-Cite de Arts).
