Suffield Players History -- The nineties


The winter production was An Evening of One-Acts produced over three weekends in February and March.  The three plays were The Temp directed by Kelly Seip, Chores directed by Bob Demetrius and Zoo Story directed by Ed Gogulski.  The Temp went to the ACT/CONN Festival at the L. P. Wilson Center and carried away awards for Best Production Runner-Up, Best Director for Kelly, Best Actor for Scott Grumling, Best Supporting Actress-HM for Amy Heft Facey and the Stage Managers Award to Kelly Wright.  Not to be outdone, Zoo Story won awards at the 1996 ACT/Conn Festival for Best Production Runner-Up and Best Ensemble, due to the excellent performances by Rick Anderson and Dana Ring.
This was followed by Nunsense's successful four-weekend run, featuring Jane Okai, Jane Kitz, Jennifer Decoste, Paula Cortis, Mary Broderick, Amy Heft Facey and Mona Tiglio (Drumgold).  John Howland directed, assisted by Rick Anderson.
Scholarships were awarded at the annual meeting.  The Biggio Scholarships went to Mike Moreau and Katie Alaimo for the Academy of Performing Arts, to Mickey Allen and Derek Donnelly for the Suffield Academy, and to Amy Modzelesky for STAGE.  The Alcorn Scholarships went to Cheryl Baldyga for University of Hartford and Heather Secora for Westfield State College.
The year drew to a close with the October-November production of Death of a Salesman, directed by Denise Boutin and featuring John Howland as Willy Loman.
