Bob Filipowich (VICTOR Le PEWE (The Once Golden Boy Director)
This is by no means Bob’s first rodeo here with the Town Players although it is his first ride as a “director”- well sort of! 😜 He appeared last season as David O Selznik in “Moonlight and Magnolias”. Other favorite roles he has played in area theaters include: Billy Flynn in “Chicago”, Georges in “La Cage”, George in “Moon Over Buffalo”, Aldolpho in “The Drowsy Chaperone”, Applegate in “Damn Yankees”, The Lead Player in “Pippin”, and Harold Hill in “The Music Man”. Always fun to share the stage with some old cronies and new ones alike. Places, Damn It!

Austin Howe (CHAZ LOONEY)
Austin is performing in his first performance at the Powerhouse Theater and is more than excited to be playing the roles of Drools/Chaz. Austin is a local actor and a graduate of drama from The Catholic University. Austin was a feature on multiple main stage performances in college, as well as a myriad of performances around the Washington DC area. Austin wants to thank everyone for coming out to see this rib tickling performance!
Angela Mantero (MONA MONET (The Diva))
Angela appreciates the irony that her first role in over 30 years is as a washed-up actress desperately trying to make a comeback. She is proud to have passed down her love of theater to her four amazing kids. This has allowed her to spend the last 15 years directing and working with middle school and high school theater. She spends her days as the enrollment/tuition coordinator for 4 inner-city Catholic schools and many nights sitting in high school theaters across Connecticut as a judge for the Seven Angels HALO Awards. Angela is deeply grateful to TPNC for giving her this coveted opportunity to return to the stage; to her parents, Tony and Toni, for always being her biggest supporters; to Marisa, Francisco, Olivia and Antonio for their unconditional love and encouragement; to Frank for this wonderful life; and to God for absolutely everything.  
Chris Nardi (PHILIP FEY (The Stage Manger))
Chris is excited to make his debut with Town Players of New Canaan!  A resident of Bronxville, NY, he is active in the Fairfield/Westchester theatre scene, performing with groups including Curtain Call, Harrison Players, and Armonk Players.  Recent credits include She Loves Me (Ensemble), 1776 (Joseph Hewes), and Something Rotten (Peter Quince/Ensemble).  Chris wants to thank the entire cast, crew, and production team for making him feel welcome and hopes this is the first of many shows here!
Amy Plent (ALABAMA MILLER (The Playwright))
This is Amy’s first time on-stage in 20 years, and she did not realize just how much she had missed it until the opportunity to work on this production came along.  In the late nineties and early 2000s Amy was a founding member of the Acts Factory Players in Collinsville CT.  Roles there included Jakes Women (Edith), Steel Magnolias (M’Lynn) and A Midsummer Nights Dream (Hippolyta).  Directing Credits included The Heidi Chronicles, Pygmalion and The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.  Huge thanks to Rob and everyone at TPNC for this opportunity—for sure it will not be 20 years this time before the next audition
Sally Rose Zuckert (CANDY APPLES)
Sally Rose last appeared on the Powerhouse stage as Sorrel Bliss in Hay Fever. Other credits: LawnChair Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Queen (Helena), Curtain Call’s Murder on the Orient Express (Mary Debenham), and Chicago Theatre East’s MY H8 LETTER… (Brene). For her past work in TPNC’s production of Rocket Girl (Mary Sherman Morgan), Sally Rose earned a nomination for BroadwayWorld’s Regional Performer of the Decade Award. You can see SRZ in two upcoming short films (The Spider, Redemption) and hear her (regular) voice featured in Waveny Park’s Otocast audio guide. Gratitude to the company and team behind this very dramatic, very serious play.
Sarah Sherwood (DEBBIE SCORSESE)
Sarah was previously seen on the TPNC stage in the before times as Buttons in Cinderella, The Panto, and you may have seen her virtually in the delivery room in Talking With.

Sarah sends love and thanks to her husband and tre bambini who keep her on her toes and gave her the greatest role this gal could ask for. Il mio cuore appartiene a superuomo. Mon Dieu.
Jim Parry (P. G. “PIGGY” BANKS)
This is the first time I’ve been on stage since I was a student, long ago. In high school, I was Stage Manager in Our Town, a role to which I brought all the gravitas of my fifteen years. In college, I was in Areopagitica, a farce based on the writings of Milton, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, et cetera (in the early 1960s, my college’s idea of humor). Since then, the closest I’ve come to performances is, as a copywriter and ad agency owner, helping cast people to pitch after-sun lotion, yogurt, galoshes, et cetera. Whenever I doubt how P.G. “Piggy” Banks should sound, I channel my Russian émigré father yelling at Khrushchev on TV.
