Set Designer
Joel Reynolds
This is the BEST job I never got paid for! Heck, building sets is probably the best job paid or unpaid I’ve had. Retired people can do a lot of good for the community. Building sets just ticks off a lot of what I wanted: grow my circle of friends, learn new skills, enjoy helping others display their talents, watch audiences light up as the stage lights are lit. This begins my seventh year of helping design and build sets for the Town Players at Waveny’s Power House Theater. I’m an enthusiastic supporter of this adventure and invite YOU to come in and see how the magic is made.
Assistant Stage Manager
Malynda Nichols
Malynda started performing since high school, working on productions such as Pippin, Little Shop, where she was the voice of Audrey II, and 42nd Street, portraying Phyllis Dale. In 1992, she worked with The Talent Hut Players in Seymour, CT where she worked on shows such as Damn Yankees, Cabaret, and Lil' Abner. This is Malynda's first time as Assist Stage Manager and she is excited for the opportunity to be working with an extremely talented cast and crew. Especially her little brother, Rob, who was stolen in infancy by a band of wandering gypsies. Thanks for comin' out!
