Perhaps you’ve seen her about town, engaging the support of local businesses or drumming up interest for one of the oldest all-volunteer organizations in the country.
Armed with smiles and full of energy, this 4 foot 11 little lady sure makes the rounds in the city of Oswego. Whether she’s seeking donations for for a Players’ fundraiser, looking for sponsors for a program or simply hanging posters for an upcoming show, you certainly won’t forget you met her.
On December 7, Tammy Wilkinson brings that enthusiasm to the stage in the Players’ latest production “It’s a Wonderful Life” directed by Troy Pepper.
“Tammy has a strong presence in life as well as on the stage. She brings that life force to every character and we are thrilled to have her on the stage again,” he said.
A local favorite indeed, you may remember her from her lead role as Billy Dawn in “Born Yesterday” or in a number of other Players’ productions over the years.
Tammy has lived in the area for the past 8 years but said she has never felt as connected to the community as she does now. Working with all of the local business owners while advocating for an organization she truly loves has given her her roots here and she is grateful to call it home.
2012 was her first full year as producer and what a year it has been – with the Players throwing a huge renovation fundraiser at The American Foundry last August in addition to offering its full slate of shows for the year.
Tammy has been busy tackling every aspect of the job description with vigor.
Tammy also maintains the content on the Players’ new website designed and hosted by Blackburn Graphics as well as all social media.
Rounding out the year in the coveted classic role as Mary Bailey is icing on the cake.
Performances will take place on the Frances Marion Brown Theatre stage in the Oswego Civic Arts Center, Fort Ontario Complex.
Production dates are December 7, 8 and 14, 15 at 8 p.m.
A matinee will be performed on December 16 at 2 p.m.
