These amazing “Ladies in Waiting” have been working hard on learning lines, music & choreography for the upcoming show…. we can’t wait to share their talents with you this Thursday through Sunday at one of the 4 public performances for Once Upon a Mattress.
Carmell Kenley as Princess #12, Lady in Waiting
Carmell began her theater involvement about three years ago at the encouragement of one of her children (ahem, Sir Studley) and has never looked back. Having been in various productions in the area, she is excited to be working for the first time with Heritage Players! The group is wonderful and wonderfully talented, and the show has been terribly fun to put together for you, so she hopes you enjoy it ever-so-much!!!
Jennifer Simonson as Lady Rowena
This is Jennifer’s third time performing with Pine City Heritage Players. Her previous appearances were in Bye Bye Birdie and The Music Man. Jennifer has had a lifelong passion for music, laughter, and learning. She deeply appreciates the opportunity musical theater affords her to explore these pursuits. Jennifer would like to thank the entire cast and crew for all of their hard work and dedication to the show. She has enjoyed every minute of rehearsals and considers it a true honor to be a part of this production. She hopes you all enjoy the show!
BeckaJo Bredeson as Lady Merrill
This is BeckaJo’s second production with PCHP having performed in Shrek: The Musical last summer as Mama Bear & Chorus Member. Other recent shows include “A Christmas Carol” as the Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come, “The Importance of Being Ernest” as Miss Prism, the “Gift of the Magi” as Madam Vodskya, and the Producers.
Becci Palmblade as Lady Lucille
This is Becci’s first Heritage players production in nearly a decade. She was in the Summer production of Joseph in 2010, and has been involved in a few Christmas fundraisers for the Heritage Players. She is very excited that the stars aligned and she was able to be part of this show. When she’s not on stage, she’s chasing her 3 small children, or putting together a community event with the Pine Area Lions. A huge thank you to her knight in shining Carhartts, who holds down their fort. She appreciates it more than he knows! Her only regret with auditioning for this production is she won’t get to be in the audience to see it! She hopes you all enjoy the show!
Cassandra Olson as Mabelle
Cassandra is excited to be back on stage with the Heritage Players. You may have seen her in Nunsense or one of the Songs of the Stage fundraiser concerts. She enjoys working behind the scenes as a Board Member. Cassandra also sings professionally with DeCantus, a Victorian caroling group based out of St. Paul. She also stays busy with work, her local business, and Pine Area Lions, and her family. She is thankful for the support to be able to be in this fun production and grateful for the entire cast, crew and musicians for sharing their time and talents.
