THOMASTON — Camden Civic Theatre announced that it has engaged a cast of players for its dramatic spectacle, “Dirty Work at the Crossroads — or Tempted, Tried and True.”
Devin Fletcher will portray the tender and true heroine, Nellie Lovelace, and Rick O’Malley will take the role of dastardly villain Munro Murgatroyd. Ian Brackett will make his debut as the stalwart hero, Adam Oakheart, who is tempted by Mim Bird as the notorious dance hall queen, Ida Rheingold. Supporting cast members include Kate Fletcher as sweet Widow Lovelace, Steve Bird as rustic Mookie MacGuggins, Heather Mackay as society belle Leonie Asterbilt, Marie Merrifield as flirtatious French maid Fleurette, Natalie Stewart as endearing Little Nell, and Lois Levensaler returning to the stage as Mrs. Upson Asterbilt of Newport and Brooklyn.
Interludes will include the vocal renderings of Dagney Ernest, the banjo picking fireworks of professor John A. Luis, the piratical shenanigans of Marcus Carter, impassioned recitation by Daniel Bird and amusing vignettes enacted by Lyn Bass, Erica Dailey and Patricia Saucier.
Paul Weintraub will guide fashionable audiences through the delights of the show as master of ceremonies, assisted by the prince of putrid puns, George Grey, and Ciara Murphy.
A limited engagement of the melodrama will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday Oct. 14-16, and 2 p.m. Oct. 16, at Watts Hall in Thomaston.
