Who's Who in the Cast

MATT MCCARTHY (Clifford Glimmer) Matt is thrilled to be working with the Chatham Players. NY credits include Peaches and Cream (Waiter) and Bright Eyed Boy (Soldier #2). Favorite NJ credits include A Perfect Ganesh (Man), Babes and Brides (Alan), A Child's Christmas in Wales (Dylan Thomas) and Romeo & Juliet (Paris). Thanks to Bob for this wonderful experience. Thanks also to Christine for 'putting up with me', and to the talented cast. "BREAK A LEG"! Matt would also like to thank his family, friends, and most of all Anne for supporting me through everything.

ANGELA CORRIGAN (Terry Glimmer) Angela is pleased to be making her debut at The Chatham Playhouse. She was last seen in the title role in Nuts at SVP and as Mrs. Frank in The Diary of Anne Frank at Playhouse 22. She recently completed a two-year acting program at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City. To her family and friends, she sends her love, especially to her very supportive husband Jeff, and her two boys James and Alex. I'm sorry - you can't see this one either. Thanks for supporting mommy!

JEAN BROOKNER (Patsy) Side Man marks Jean's debut at the Chatham Playhouse. She has worked at Luna Stage, Bickford Theater, Attic Ensemble, and most recently Summit Playhouse, appearing as Ellen in Waverly Gallery. Other favorite roles include Chick in Crimes of the Heart and Jaqueline in Don't Dress for Dinner. Jean also composes music and has studied at Juilliard.

NICK LEONE (Gene Glimmer) Nick Leone had worked extensively in theatre, film and television for almost 20 years. He considers it a privilege to return to the stage in this play, with this company, and with this team of actors. Working under the direction of Bob Pridham has been an absolute joy.

KEITH BEECHEY (Al) was last seen at Chatham in the role of McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, also under the direction of Bob Pridham. Keith has been active in community theater from the early age of 12, with parts ranging from Richard III to Sky Masterson. "This performance is dedicated to the memory of my beloved mother."

JIM CONROY (Ziggy) Side Man is Jim's first time performing at the Chatham Playhouse. He is a Voice Over actor in NYC and a graduate of SUNY at New Paltz, with a degree in Theater Arts. His voice has been heard in several episodes of MTV's Celebrity Death Match and is currently running in a number of radio and television commercials around the country. He recently moved from New York to New Jersey and would like to add that it doesn't smell half as bad as he had been previously told. Jim dedicates this and all performances to his father for his unwavering support.

JAMES MORGAN (Jonesy) James was last seen at Chatham last season as Charles in Blithe Spirit, and has made dozens of other appearances in the NJ area over the past 18 years. Jim is a personnel manager and lives in New Brunswick with his stray cat. He is a 5-time Jeopardy! winner.
