Join Matt Longmire for a conversation with director Kate Meyers and actors Erik Van Beuzekom and John Ellis.
Kate first set foot on BPA’s stage almost 35 years ago and cherishes the many roles she has played at BPA since then, from backstage crew to actor, member of the board, fundraiser, and Director.
Kate is especially excited to direct this production of The War of the Worlds for BPA. In 1998, she was Producer for Island Theatre’s on- stage production of Frank Buxton’s original adaptation of The War of the Worlds, also presented at BPA. She performed in and assisted Frank Buxton in several other “On the Air: From the Golden Age of Radio” shows performed at BPA, which included episodes of Fibber McGee and Molly, The Shadow, and Meet Corliss Archer, and a holiday production of It’s a Wonderful Life.
Erik has played Orson Welles in a one man show for nine years, traveling to L.A., Illinois, and Vienna, Austria.
Founding member of The EDGE Improv and recipient of the 2018 Island Treasure award, John has appeared on the BPA stage in Noises Off, Annie, Born Yesterday, Guys and Dolls, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It, ‘Art’, Sylvia, and The Merry Wives of Windsor.
