A Midsummer Night's Dream - August 11 - August 14, 2022

Goodly Frame Theatre

 Who's Who 

  • Briana V.

    as Puck, or Robin Goodfellow, Oberon’s lieutenant

    Briana was not expecting this role and is stumped about what to tell the good readers of this program! She has fond memories of doing Midsummer in high school but has mostly remained backstage or in the audience since then. This marks her first time working with Goodly Frame; she thanks Meredith and Sarah W. for creating a warm and witty rehearsal space.

    John’s proudest theatrical accomplishments are his translations of contemporary Japanese plays published by the Japan Playwrights Association. Other credits include director, producer, playwright, and dramaturg. He appeared in the Evening of Short Plays as drag queen Kitty Bang Bang, AKA Denny, in Cari Hopson’s “Homecoming” (GPF), and as Buckingham in Richard III (SRPAC).

Laurie is a non-diet dietitian and nutrition professor at UNCG. She likes hanging out with her family and doing impressions at the dinner table. She’d like to thank her first acting teacher, Katie Damron, and Meredith DiPaolo Stephens for their patience, kindness, and direction.
