All's fair in love…even murder? That's the question posed in Seneca Community Players' Murder At The Howard Johnson's, a light and funny suspense comedy about a love triangle in a Howard Johnson Motor Inn.
Steven Mitchell directs this farce from murder plot to love affair to murder plot again. A long-time performer and SCP production staffer, this is Mitchell's first time directing.
Playing the role of Paul, the bumbling used car dealer, is Kevin Schoonover. Schoonover was last seen as Valere in The Miser last year. This is his second role with Seneca
The female part of the “triangle,” Arlene, is played by Amy Smith. A newcomer to SCP, Smith had parts in Stage Door, Fiddler On The Roof and The Music Man at Waterloo High School.
Completing the cast is Patrick Fegley, playing the commonplace dentist, Mitchell, who sees himself as the dashing heroic type. Fegley last appeared as the menacing Max in this summer's CABARET and was hilarious in last winter's A Tuna Christmas.
The production staff includes producer Karl Nies; stage manager Kathy Hadley; technical director RJ Rapoza/Aaron Isaacs; costumes Jennifer Mitchell/Kris Marble; hair/makeup Debbie Roper; lights Becky Bly; props Carol Millis; publicity Kevin Schoonover; set designer Lynn Patti; dramaturge Kristi Levis.
