Director, Nathan Linders, is pleased to announce that a full cast has been selected to stage The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon, to hit the Venables stage starting February 4. Thank you to all the others who expressed an interest in this show and a special welcome to SOAP Theatre newcomer actors Derek Beaton and Bill Shields (though Bill is currently rehearsing in his debut role in Flaming Idiots).
O. CLOUTIE (Jen Jensen): Travelling woman (or man). For untold millennia, Cloutie has skipped a curling rink in the Celestial Brier. She is founder of First Fallen Angel Church, Closed Assembly of Satan, and a very a poor loser.
WULLIE MacCRIMMON (David Badger): A shoe-maker, and continuing Presbyterian. He skips his curling rink. Like Cloutie, he prefers to win.
REVEREND PRINGLE (Joel Browne): Skilled curler. Since the union of the Methodist and Presbyterian churches in the twenties, he has been minister of Grace United Church.
ANNIE BROWN (Connie Mythen): Malleable Charlie Brown' wife. She is Mormon and does not curl. A little of Annie goes a long way and there seems to be quite a lot of her. She also is a poor loser.
PIPE-FITTING CHARLIE BROWN (Derek Beaton): Plumber, who curls second for Wullie. Over the years, the joints of his Protestant soul have sprung many leaks, but he feels that time and corrosion will heal up anything.
CLOCK CHARLIE BROWN (Clem Jones): A jeweler who curls lead for Wullie. He is Catholic.
MALLEABLE CHARLIE BROWN (Tom Szalay): A blacksmith who curls third for Wullie. He has two problems: (1) an untrustworthy lower back, and (2) his wife, Annie.
GUY FAWKES (Joe Rupcich): Explosive Englishman, who curls lead for Cloutie.
JUDAS ISCARIOT (Garry Doll): Lapsed Christian, who curls second for Cloutie.
MACBETH (Bill Shields): A rather wordy and ambitious countryman of Wullie's, who curls third for Cloutie. Like Wullie, he is a continuing Presbyterian and he can appreciate Malleable Charlie Brown’s marital problem.
