Two familiar faces will have featured roles in The Oswego Players September production of Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Lady Who Cried FoxÃ¢â‚¬Â by Edward Clinton. Jim McGann and Norman Berlin, III have plenty of stage experience, and will delight Oswego audiences in this 1970Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s comedy. Carol DeCapio is directing.
Jim McGann first appeared on the Fort Ontario stage in Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Deadly GameÃ¢â‚¬Â in 1987, with director Virginia Ranous. Since then he has performed in numerous productions, including Ã¢â‚¬Å“Lo and BeholdÃ¢â‚¬Â, Ã¢â‚¬Å“10 Little IndiansÃ¢â‚¬Â, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Christmas SpiritÃ¢â‚¬Â, and most recently, Ã¢â‚¬Å“12 Angry MenÃ¢â‚¬Â. He states he is so happy to again be working with Carol DeCapio, with whom he has many times shared the stage. He has been her father, husband and boss. Now he says, Ã¢â‚¬Å“SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the boss!Ã¢â‚¬Â As busy as McGann is, he still finds time to volunteer at the library and has been a member of St. PaulÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s choir for many years.
Norman Berlin, III, is no newcomer to the stage. He has been involved with the Oswego ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Theatre, playing anything and everything to add to his repertoire. He says he is now ready to take on adult roles and brings naivety and humor to the character Ã¢â‚¬Å“HannibalÃ¢â‚¬Â. Berlin lives and breathes theatre. His goal is to eventually serve the Players as President, and continue the groupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s commitment to live theatre in the Oswego community. His director states that she has no doubt that he will one day achieve his goal.
