Burlington County Footlighters

 Who's Who 

Shawn O’Brien (Scrooge) debuted here at BCF last August as Leon Trotsky in Variations on the death of Trotsky. Some of his favorite roles have been Louie Kurnitz in Lost in Yonkers, Bob Ewell in To kill a Mockingbird & Audrey 2 in Little Shop of Horrors. He would like to thank everyone who love & support him with their love & support. Most of all he would sincerely like to thank you the patron. Without you there is no us. Thank you! Enjoy.


Steve Rogina (Narrator/Jacob Marley) is thrilled to finally be back with his theater family performing live on stage once again. He was last seen, pre-pandemic, in The Laramie Project with Maple Shade Arts Council (coincidentally, also directed by Lori). By day, Steve is an American Sign Language Interpreter and a HS volleyball coach... Go Quakers! Many thanks to Janel for understanding about the long work/practice/rehearsal days.


Matt Dell'Olio (Bob Cratchit, Businessman, Narrator) is very happy to be on stage again after the forced hiatus of the pandemic. He'd like to thank the cast and crew for all their hard work, Lori for the opportunity, and Alex for her love and support.


Andrea Veneziano (Christmas Past, Mrs. Cratchit, Sarah, Laundress, Narrator) is thrilled to be making her Burlington County Footlighters debut. She has performed in a variety of productions in the South Jersey area, most recently Ann Putnam in The Crucible. Much love and thanks to friends and family, especially Angelo, Marco, and Charlie.


Nick French (Christmas Present, Fezziwig, Old Joe, Narrator) is so glad to be back on an indoor stage again! Previously, he could be seen at Footlighters in Bright Star (Daddy Cane), on Second Stage in The Groundling (Dodd) and outdoors in Sure Thing... (Words, Words, Words as Milton). Favorite past roles include Waiting for the Host (Dodd), Beauty and the Beast (The Beast/Gaston), Big Fish (Amos Calloway), Big River (The Duke), The Crucible (Reverend Parris) and A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder (The D'Ysquith Family). Previous music direction credits include High School Musical Jr, The Lion King Jr, Scrooge, and Melancholy Play. Thanks to Lori and Matt for encouraging me to dip my toes back into theatre, and to Mom, Dad, Sean, Brian, Amanda, and my best girl Keira for their love and support. Love you all, and I'm so glad to be back!


Stephen Jackson (Christmas Yet to Come, Almsman, Narrator) is excited to be back on stage and was last seen at Footlighters in Sure Thing on the Backstage. He is also a member of the Philly Pops Festival Chorus. On the weekends, he enjoys the panflute stylings of Zamfir, the cultivation of extremely large miniature Japanese Maple trees, and be-jeweling toilet seats for friends. 


Zach Martin (Fred, Businessman 2, Narrator) is thrilled to be playing Fred (as well as miscellaneous narrators) in this adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic. Zach’s previous forays into NJ theatre include Natural History (James) at Burlington County Footlighters and The Man Who Came to Dinner (Richard) at Haddonfield Plays and Players. Zach wants to thank Lori and the rest of the cast and crew for putting on a great show and the audience for coming out for some Christmas in November. Let the “All I Want For Christmas is You” flow through you! (Not endorsed by Mariah Carey)


Alex Davis (Mrs. Fezziwig, Fred’s Wife, Charwoman, Narrator) is so excited to be back after a near-two-year-forced hiatus (ya know - because of all of the...unpleasantness). Most recent BCF credits include Jane Locke/Elmira Royster, Poe, Jackie Noelle, Disaster, Elaine Harper, Arsenic and Old Lace, and Stella Kowalski, A Streetcar Named Desire. She also directed the 2018 production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Alex sends thanks to the production team and cast, her family, and most importantly to Matt, for being awesome always.
