has been involved in local community theatre productions for many years. Theatre is her home away from home. Ann has been involved with productions in Plaistow, NH, Haverhill, Georgetown and Newburyport. One of the perks that has come with working in community theatre productions has been the opportunity to live out her childhood dream and put on tap shoes and dance. Ann has learned, under guidance of talented folks, how to build and paint sets, and set up lights and sound. She has developed a deep appreciation of the efforts made to bring all art forms to the seacoast. Ann has taken acting classes at The Actors Studio, Newburyport. The seacoast is truly a playground for all who love the arts.

Stage ManagerGael Nappa
was looking for a use for her degree in Dramatic Arts when she joined Georgetown Theatre Workshop in 1986. Since then, she has performed in, worked backstage on, produced and directed plays with the GTW, sitting out only 2 productions in 30 years. She has lured most of her family and friends to perform or assist, and loves the opportunity to work with her kids. Her favorite play was Sisters Rosensweig by Wasserstein, in which she was able to play a romantic lead opposite her late husband, Ken. In Seniors of the Sahara by Barbara Pease Weber, she performed a belly dance, which was… memorable. Her proudest moment was when she directed a play authored by Christopher Dollas. In her real life, Gael is retired from having been a children’s librarian for more than 20 years.
