Rob Allyn: Rob joined the Miracle Players for
Julius Caesar and has come back
every year despite the fact that
we are so mean to him (actually, we think that he likes it).
This year he is playing Pompey the Great, Cassius, along with a pirate
and some Gauls. "I don't care what role I have, as long as I can play with
plastic swords". Your wish is our command Rob!
Eric Bassanesi: Eric is still the brains
and pocket behind the Miracle Players,
and despite the number of coffees he drinks every day, he still has the
whitest teeth out of all the cast. This year Eric will be playing
the title role of Caesar. However, he would like to point out the
fact that unlike Caesar, he doesn't have any hair loss problems, thank you very much!!!
Denise McNee: Denise is still the
shortest member of the cast and this year will be playing Spurinna the
soothsayer and Mark Anthony. She is pleased to be performing with
Chuck, who, she would like to add, is actually shorter than her.
Sorry Denise, chickens don't count.
Frances Nacman: from NY City, Frances returns on the stage for
the third year as a full-fledged Miracle Player.
Frances is playing the role of the narrator, which includes
Alexander the Great, Cato (not Kato), a Scottish bloke, Cleopatra et al. She
would like to point out that if you see her with a beard during the show it is
fake one and not her own!
Dyanne White: Dyanne has been with the
Miracle Players since its founding with the production of
Everyman. She joins us for yet
another year of mayhem despite the fact that she will still not
be playing any female roles! What can we say, Dyanne? History was written
by men. Dyanne
will be playing Crassus, Cicero, Brutus, along with a pirate and some more men.
Chuck the stunt Chicken: This is Chuck's
second appearance with the Miracle Players, his first was in the
History of Rome, and he is
again playing his favourite role of a sacrificial chicken. "BWOK"
Sorry Chuck, didn't we mention that!
SPECIAL THANKS TO...
Gaia Morelli and Marco Flore: Gaia and Marco
designed this year's poster and postcards. Marco is an incredible
illustrator who instantly captured the spirit of the group and Gaia
skilfully and seamlessly put it all together. They work with other dynamic
and talented artists that have formed the
having seen some of their creations we feel that they are right in claming
that "the group is the
21Lab, the creative laboratory for the 21st Century."
Bassanesi - also known as Eric's mum: For proof reading the Italian
paperwork and especially the unenviable task of washing the togas for nine
