it must have been like to produce a story for radio.”

Wherever there’s a right needing to be wronged, he’ll be there. Whenever there’s food needing to be eaten, he’ll have a fork. And whatever you can do, he can do better. Some say he’s not human. Others say he’s just a man. Only a small percentage say he’s a woman. But no matter what he is, his name and title remain the same. Into the light of the dark black night comes… Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent!

Phil is thrilled to be making his debut with MEG. And he loved the experience so much that he will be back for more this fall, where you can see him as Ryan in the world premiere of “aMUSEd” on this very same stage! He has worked with many different theatre groups throughout SE Wisconsin. Earlier this year he portrayed Billy Bibbit in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and Axel Hammond in “The Nerd” (both with Sunset Playhouse), and most recently was seen as Feuilly in “Les Miserables” at Waukesha Civic Theatre. Later this summer he will be playing the role of Hal in “Picnic” at SummerStage of Delafield. Love and Hugs to Sarah, Nathan, and Ryan. Enjoy the show!

Jim is happy to return to the Brumder stage where he and Lori Minetti have presented “Love Letters”, “An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe”, and their two actor show ” A Dickens of a Christmas Carol” as well as appearing in several murder mysteries, most recently “Murder is a Fine Art.”

James Iaquinta
as Wallace

Tom was first ‘on-stage’ as a ‘professional actor’ in 1957, and so far he’s been able to enjoy (and endure) all that one encounters in an ‘actor’s life.’ He learned to adjust to not always being ‘on-stage’ by taking on such roles as that of prop master, sound technician, set designer/decorator, stage manager, director, writer and producer. Tom recently returned to performing in musical theatre in Sunset Playhouse’s “How To Succeed…” and will soon be seen in Jeff Ircink’s “Stan’s Addiction”.
