CAST & CREW – Black Out

Dave Barta

Dave Barta

Casca

Black Out is Dave’s acting debut. He hopes he isn’t type-cast as a murderous, toga wearing conspirator.  He has actively supported his wife’s involvement in theater and thought it would be fun to join in.  He was right and has a new appreciation for the art.  Thanks to the rest of the team for their support and patience.
Vicki Barta

Janice

Vicki is known to local audiences as a stage performer, but this is her very first radio play.  She is grateful for this opportunity and has learned much.  She now has a huge appreciation for the effort that voice acting entails!  She was seen on the Ladysmith Little Theatre stage in Kitchen Witches (2018), and Rumors (2019).
Mike Cooper

Caesar

Mike Cooper plays Caesar in the onstage portion of this radio drama. Mike is a regular fixture at Ladysmith Little Theater. Though he’s been on stage for many productions over the past 12 years, this is his first attempt at Shakespeare.  His hope is that you enjoy our production.

Marni’s radio love began as a child when her Dad built a new cabinet that resembled a little house around an old radio. To this day she still loves listening to both old and new shows. Thrilled to be part of creating one she enjoyed this experience and looks forward to doing more!

After this lengthy theatre-free season, Greg is happy to be involved in two of LLT’s radio plays.  His last involvement with theatre was in the Covid-shortened production of Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun.  He has been active in the theatre community, both backstage and onstage, for several years. He would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard to get these radio plays produced.

Ben, Trebonius

Ken’s first involvement in the Ladysmith Little Theatre was in 2014, in Man of La Mancha.  Since then, he’s lost track of the plays in which he played a major or a minor part. Perhaps his favourite was as a camel in the Christmas Pantomime.

Lorne has been involved in many community theatre sound design productions along with some commercial design projects as well. In addition he has completed a number of short dramatic films along with some freelance commercial video. He enjoyed being part of this production.

Closing in on two years now, since finishing “The Diary of Anne Frank” with Nanaimo Theatre Group, Christian is thrilled to have the opportunity to engage with his fellow thespians on a new adventure.

An avid supporter of Ladysmith Little Theatre, Michael is pleased to be a part of this new, old medium in his first radio play. Last seen on the LLT stage in Spring Shorts (2020), previous Ladysmith Productions include Spring Shorts (2019), Kitchen Witches (2018), and Dearly Departed (2015). He would like to thank Gord and LLT for this opportunity. Virtual hugs to all the cast and crew. 
Gordon McInnis

Gordon McInnis

Director

Gordon’s last radio show was in the distant, foggy past of his university days. More recently, he has been involved on and off the stages of LLT and YPDG. While missing the thrills and challenges of live theatre, the radio show has had its fair share of fun and fills the gap till life resumes. Many thanks to the talented cast and crew.
