Meet the Cast:


Andrey Botvinnik   - Terry Hermes
This will be Terry's 11th Park Players production, and the second this
summer, having played Oberon this past May in Midsummer Night's Dream, one
of his favorite roles ever.  Since he started doing theatre in Birmingham
in June of 2003, he has appeared in 32 productions.  But enough numbers.
Other favorite roles around town in this stretch: George in Who's Afraid of
Virginia Woolf and Juror #4 in 12 Angry Men , and Aaronov in Glengarry Glen
Ross, all for Theatre Downtown; Ralph the narrator in three different
productions of A Christmas Story, for Centerstage twice, and at ACTA.; and
Balthasar in The Lying Kind  at TNT. This one, as the crusty old Russian
diplomat, will rank right up there--such a rich character with depth and
charm, confronting one of the most urgent questions of mankind: its very
survival. My thanks to Clay for giving me this wonderful opportunity.


John Honeyman  - Hal Word

A native of Scottsboro Alabama, Hal is excited to be appearing in his first show with Park Players and would like to thank Clay for such a great opportunity. He is also thrilled to be sharing the stage with his friend Terry for the second time. Hal has appeared in such area productions as Terrific New Theatre’s “China: The Whole Enchilada, Red Mountain Theatre’s “The Sound of Music”, CenterStage Productions’ “Into the Woods” and “Grease”, Muse of Fire’s “Marriage a la Mode”, LJCC’s “Once Upon a Mattress”, The Leeds Arts Council’s “My Fair Lady”, and Birmingham Festival Theatre’s “The Great Wrong Way.” He has also appeared in Opera Birmingham’s productions of “Aida”, “Turandot” and “Faust.” Hal is currently a guest artist at Birmingham Children’s Theatre where he has recently appeared as King Trueword in “The Frog Prince” and originated the role of Ms. Licorice in their premiere of “Hansel and Gretel.” This September thru December he can be seen as the Wicked Stepmother in their production of “Cinderella.”


Director - A. Clay Boyce  
Clay is the artistic director and founder of Park Players. He is thrilled to be directing a show he fell in love with 25 years ago.  He was last seen on the stage as Tyler in the LJCC's production of "Crossing Delancey". He recently finished directing "The Trip to Bountiful" for South City Theatre. Some of his favorite roles have been George in "Of Mice and Men", the Beast in "Disney's Beauty and the Beast", the title role in "Hamlet" and Victoria's dad. He would like to thank his wife, Vicki and his daughter, Victoria for all the love and support they have given him through the years! He would also like to thank this incredibly talented cast and crew and thank them for their time and effort.  I couldn't have done this without you!
