Bell, Book and Candle Cast
Danielle Santapaola (Gillian Holroyd)
Danielle has been involved with the workshop since May of 2011. Her most memorable role was playing the elderly dog murderer, Pearl, in Greater Tuna. In her non-theatrical life, Danielle was an elementary school teacher, but left to be a stay at home mom to her now 9 year old son, Jason, and 7 year old daughter, Ayla. She is now a para-professional, wrangling kids at work, and home. The GTW has allowed her time to focus on herself and engage in adult conversation.
Renee Heusser (Nicki Holroyd)
Renee has been with the GTW for 20 years now and has played a myriad of roles, done lights, and sound, stage managing, and directing. Some of her favorite roles have been Ouiser in Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling, Agatha in All Because of Agatha by Jonathan Troy, and her five roles in Greater Tuna by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. Renee is very lucky to be doing what she loves for work as an assistant clinic director of a mental health clinic and director of a psychiatric day treatment program for adults with chronic mental illness. She would like to thank her family and friends for their unwavering love and support.
Beverly Marzioli (Aunt Queenie Holroyd)
Beverly is happy to be appearing with the GTW. She has been performing for over 40 years in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Some of her favorite roles include ‘Yente’ in Fiddler on the Roof, ‘Lucia' in Never Get Smart With an Angel, ‘Aunt Eller’ in Oklahoma!, 'Cookie' in Neil Simon's Rumors, ‘Mammy Yokum’ in L’il Abner, ‘Mrs. White’ in Clue the Musical, 'Mona/Bette' in Drop Dead. Last year Beverly played such diverse roles as a real historic character, a fairy tale Granny, a hatchet murderess and a cartoon bird, which in a nutshell are the joys of being a character actress.
Phil Lakaszcyck (Sidney Redlitch)
Phil was originally on stage at age twelve with the Haverhill Community Players as Arnie in I Remember Mama. In college, Phil had roles in three plays, Stalag 17 as Hoffy, The Front Page as Hildy, and My Three Angels as Henri. Absent from the theater for 45 years and now in semi-retirement, Phil returned to the stage in the Spotlight Players Christmas radio show of The Gift of the Magi, as Conrad Cooper and the following spring of this year in the Acting Out production of Drop Dead as Solly Weisenheimer.
Bill Foley (Shepherd Henderson)
Having entertained seniors at assisted living, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, adult day programs and senior centers for the past nine years, Bill decided to give the theatre a shot. He dedicates this effort to his late Mom, Paulette (although she was always on time!) Jared, I thank you for what has been, is and what will be a wonderful experience with you, cast and crew. Thank you.
