The Show was born first of all by Janis Stevens' efforts and labors, that were especially tiresome considering her unbelievable energy to drive back and forth from Sacramento to Oroville. She has managed to beat a lazy community theatre cast into a half professional acting group, only within 5 short weeks where at least a weak and a half was gone because of the cast's and her tight schedule as a professional actor, director and acting couch. Her energetic (and knowing no impossible) work has inspired all the actors as much as it has frustrated them, because of the unknown waters of professional theatre acting, directing and moral style. Her humorous standing within the raging time which has taken its toll on everyone eased the tension and her fast spacing deep psychological insight finally ripened the fruits of everyones laborious attempt to live up to her standards. The seemingly chaotic character development and frantic spaced acting style has paid off for all community theatre actors and has achieved its desired goal. Opening night has brought all the rewards that could be harvested after the strenuous rehearsal period.
Brian Shaw as the Chocolate cream soldier and first performer of any theatre delivered a surprising performance. His sensitivity to feel audience and his fellow actors vibes made him successful. No doubt we were the eye witnesses of an actors birth on February the 20th 2009. Sarah Bartlett as Raina whose cheery personality no doubt fuels her talented acing style has guided all of lost souls throughout the rehearsal periods. Her performance werent only funny, but deeply moving. Laszlo Szontagh as Sergious who has brought much dynamic energy to the table undoubtedly could be called the clown of the show with a philosophic heart. Leila Krusch as Louka has once again showed the world that you dont have to be an egomaniac to be a great actress, and subtlety sometimes more than throwing candy to the audience. Terry Bartlett as Petkoff has went through one of his toughest rehearsal period in his 14 years of community theatre acting carrier. Janis Stevens brought a ne character out of him and after much struggle the Bear has came out of his cave to entertain and ensure the laughter of all that were watching the show. His newly found knowledge to preserve energy is the base grid to hold the play's structure in place. Cheryl Turnbough as Catherene Petkoff played the heart and perfect aristocrat who has just achieved her rank and proudly wears it no matter how ridiculous it is. Her performance has buttered all the harshness that Sergious and Paul Petkoff has brought to the stage. Herman Tuider as Nicola All I can say that I didnt see a Herman Tuider last night but I saw Nicola. When I started to write my thoughts about Herman just now I started like this: Nicola asdamn he is good. As an almost 40 veteran of theatre and acting, he knew what the stage is all about. Garry Rankin as the Russian soldier has opened up the mobility of the play, and much thanks for that to him. Wade Gess as technical support has never missed a cue which is unheard of in community theatres. Gini Bartlett gave us all the fabric and her hard work to shine on the stage without a flaw.
Laszlo Szontagh, Ca
