OSWEGO, NY – “Dial M for Murder,” directed by Troy Pepper, will be the kickoff show for the Oswego Players’ 75th year of continuous operation.
This is a great feat for a small amateur theatre in Oswego.
“Dial M” is a 1950s era chiller destined to thrill audiences.
Cast as the unsuspecting victim, Elizabeth Ladd is rehearsing her second role with the Players.
She was “Vicki” in last summer’s, “Caught in the Net.”
Ladd holds an associate’s degree in theatre from Niagara Community College, and is set to continue work toward her BFA in theatre and costume design next fall.
She works with the Acme Mystery Company in Syracuse, most recently in “Death Takes a Cruise” and “Tomb with a View.”
The AMC is an interactive theatre environment, usually in dinner theatre format.
It gives actors the challenge of “thinking on their feet” and adjusting to changing circumstances – a great asset in live theatre.
Other cast members include Zane Leo, Kyle Walton, Nathan Wescott and Paul Michael Callahan.
