This warm and funny holiday comedy tells how a family finds the true meaning of love and faith, when the oldest son, Andy, brings his atheist fiancée home for the holidays.
Andy is play by Jason Hurdle, Geneva, a veteran actor who has appeared in numerous Guild shows, including Oliver! and The Fantasticks. Michelle Caward, Stanley, plays his fiancee Randi. Caward is an award winning actress for her role of Katlin in the Guild’s Over The River and Through the Woods, which she reprised at the 2002 State Theatre Festival.
Dan Chacchia, Geneva and Eileen Wegman, Clifton Springs, play the concerned parents Phil and Emily. Chacchia was honored for his work in Over the River and Through the Woods and appeared in Lost in Yonkers. He has performed at two State Theatre Festivals. Wegman is well known throughout the area for her work in musicals and performed as Nettie in the Guild’s production of Carousel. She is also a dedicated backstage worker.
The role of Mickey, the younger, developmentally challenged, son is played by R. J. Rapoza of Geneva. Rapoza, Man of La Mancha’s award winning lighting designer, is know for his work with the Seneca Community Players. He appeared in the award winning musical Copacabana.
Greetings is directed by Eric Jansen, Clifton Springs, who directed last year’s award winning Lost in Yonkers. That production was presented at the State Theatre Festival in Troy.
