TIMBER LAKE PLAYHOUSE

Mount Carroll, IL- Timber Lake Playhouse (TLP) kicks off the 51st season next week. Each year, TLP casts an entire season of shows through auditions around the country. The season opener, Guys and Dolls, features three outstanding performers who have never worked at TLP.

Miami, Florida native, Hanah Rose Nardone, will be playing the leading female role, Sarah Brown. Attending the Chicago College of the Performing Arts, she had heard of Timber Lake Playhouse through other performers.  “I had heard great things about the company. People I knew that had worked at TLP raved about the experience. In the auditions, everyone was nice and welcoming. I am excited to work at TLP because this is the first time I will be working in theatre professionally.”

Nardone saw a play when she was eight years old and has been hooked on theatre every since. “I couldn’t imagine doing anything else,” she said. She is excited to work on Guys and Dolls because she says it is classic, musical theatre. Her character she is playing is very innocent and the classic damsel in distress.

Joe Capstick from St. Louis, Missouri, who attends Southeast Missouri State, takes on the role of Nathan Detroit for the opening production. He states, “I had heard great things about TLP. I auditioned and was offered the awesome job. I am excited to jump into the summer and work on all of these shows.”

Joe got started in theatre when he took dancing lessons and fell in love with tap. He says that he would watch movies as a child and would say, “I want to do that!” He will be able to fulfill his childhood dream in the first production. “I love acting with new people. Guys and Dolls has interesting, colorful characters. The show and the company have a great energy and that’s what I am looking forward to the most,” he said.

Capstick will be opposite, Hayley Gribble, who plays the fun character, Adelaide. Gribble stated that the role she will be playing is the role that made her fall in love with theatre. She played the character in high school in Wichita, Kansas where she grew up performing in community theatres and in a local Wichita dance company.

Gribble is also excited about the costumes in the production. She had heard that resident co-costume designers, Tate Marie Ellis and Katy Freeman, are extremely talented. Hayley has taken a peek at some of the beginnings of the costumes for the show and she feels that the audience is going to be amazed at what they see on stage.

All three performers believe that the audiences for the show will love this classic, musical theatre piece and that it will appeal to a variety of people. Capstick said, “Guys and Dolls is fun and entertaining…everyone old and young will love it!”

Guys and Dolls performances are June 6th through June 17th at Timber Lake Playhouse, 8215 Black Oak Road, Mount Carroll. Tickets are available through the box office during regular business hours, 11am - 6pm daily, at www.timberlakeplayhouse.org or 815-244-2035.

Timber Lake Playhouse, What’s Your Story?

This program is partially supported by a grant for the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.

Production Sponsors are Kunes Country Auto Group and Compliance Signs.
