About the Cast Margie Cohen (Helga ten Dorp) was most recently seen as Anfisa in AACT's Second Stage production of Chekov's TIIREE SISTERS, and as Clelia in THE NERD. An AACT member for 15 years, she enjoys working behind the scenes as well as acting. Margie works at U of M in the Rackham Graduate School, and is also an occasional student at the University. When not at work or play, Margie enjoys reading and traveling. Joe Medrano (Porter Milgrim) has been "on hiatus" from acting for several years, devoting considerable time to Kiwanis, for which he served last year as Michigan District Governor. He keeps active in AACT by designing sets with Bob Seeman (usually one per year). Although Joe's most recent AACT appearances have been taking tickets at Thursday night performances, he has appeared onstage in 25 to 30 productions, starting with his 1960 debut in DARKNESS AT NOON. He won Best Supporting Actor for his performance in A VIEW FROM TilE BRIDGE. Radio listeners may hear Joe occasionally on WAAM or WTKA on the Sunday program, Senior Spectrum. James Nissen (Clifford Anderson) has been involved in several AACf productions; his onstage roles have included Sgt. Toomey in BILOXI BLUES and Will Parker in OKLAHOMA!. Jim's offstage roles have been as Musical Director for SWEET CHARITY, SWEENEY TODD, and this past season's WEST SIDE STORY. He has also directed numerous shows for the U-M Gilbert and Sullivan Society, the New American Music Theatre, and the Purple Rose Theatre. When not doing the above, Jim is Professor of Music and Humanities at Schoolcraft College in Uvonia, and is Associate Director of Music at the First Congregational Church in Ann Arbor. Bev Pooley (Sydney Bruhl) has been entertaining Civic audiences ever since his first appearance in AACT's production of MAJOR BARBARA. Bev's efforts have earned him awards for Best Actor (twice) and Best Supporting Actor (thrice). He was last seen as Sheridan Whiteside in THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER and as Salieri in AMADEUS. You may also recognize Bev from his many appearances with the University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society, including the Major General in THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE and Pooh-Bah in THE MIKADO. Bevis a Professor of Law at the University of Michigan. directed by Joanna Woodcock Marina Seeman (Myra Bruhl) appeared as Helga ten Dorp in DEATHTRAP 10 years ago for the Black Sheep Repertory Theatre.

Bob Carbeck (Sound designer) is a local attorney in private practice and a native to Ann Arbor. Bob has principally designed and run sound effects, as well as working on set crews for AACT. He began doing sound with THE REAL THING, and last did sound for FENCES (92-93 season). He and his wife, Jordana, are enjoying their seven-month old son, Adam Benjamin, tremendously, albeit sleepily. Ted Heusei (Director) is a difficult act to chronicle. He came to AACT in 1950, directing and starring in THE SILVER WHISTLE. In forty years with AACT, Drama Season, St. Andrews Players, and various other organizations, Ted has directed over 250 plays. He returns for DEATHTRAP after a two-year directing hiatus. Ted may be heard as the voice of WAAM radio in Ann Arbor, where he continues his long career in talk radio. Thorn Johnson (T. J.) (Lighting designer) has served as AACT's "resident" lighting designer for many years, and notes that he has designed Ted's last 5 or 6 shows. T. J. designed several shows last season, including ZOOMAN AND THE SIGN, SEASCAPE, and A SOLDIER'S PLAY. T. J. helped to launch the current season by designing the premiere of John Mayhew's THE VALUE OF A DOLLAR, directed by Paul John Taylor. T. J. works for a living as a financial aid officer at the University of Michigan. He smokes an occasional cigar and does not jog. Charles Ladd (Set Builder) is a newcomer to AACf, this being his second season. Last season was a learning experience, and he now feels he can tackle any theater project, having survived the highway overpass in WEST SIDE STORY. Runelda Medrano (Assistant director and Stage manager) returns after a seven-year vacation, teaming up with Ted Heusel for their 25th theatre collaboration. Runelda has been involved in all aspects of AACf, on- and offstage, including serving on the Board of Directors. She currently volunteers her time to work in the box office and to usher for AACf productions. Now retired, Runelda produces Senjor Spectrum which is broadcast Sunday mornings on WAAM and WTKA, and is also the Secretary for the Washtenaw Chapter of the AARP. Rosemarie Rothe (Makeup Designer) has been involved in AACT for several years, designing makeup for several shows, including OKLAHOMA and BROADWAY BOUND (last season). A dedicated volunteer, Rosemarie showed up in AACT's office a dozen years ago wanting to "get involved in theater," and has been at it ever since! Bob Seeman (Producer) marks his 34th year with AACT, first helping to light WONDERFUL TOWN, and to appear onstage in DARKNESS AT NOON in 1960. Since that time he has played many other roles, both onand offstage, most often as scene designer. Last season he designed SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY, SLEEPING BEAUTY, A SOLDIER'S PLAY, and co-designed MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. He looks forward to codesigning THE MIRACLE WORKER with long-time collaborator, Joe Medrano. Betty L. Wamback (Properties) has worked on many productions since joining AACT.
