King and Peter Masterson Directed by Edmond Reynolds Music Direction by Choreographed by Eric Walton Tawna Dabney Producer Assistant Director Stage Manager Nathaniel Madura Ian Hyatt Wendy Sielaff Sound Designer Set Designer Lighting Designer Bob Skon Cathy Cassar Nathaniel Madura Co-Costume Designer Properties Master Co- Costume Designer Cheryl Berteel Torey Berneis Barb Wells Set Dresser Set Construction Set Painter Martha Montoye Mike Sielaff Leo Babcock Hair Dresser Graphic Designer House Manager Stephanie Buczek Erik Wright-Olsen Tanya Dabney Produced by special arrangement with Samud French, Inc. From the Director Welcome to 1973! President Richard Nixon tells the Associated Press "I am not a crook:' Spiro T. Agnew resigns as vice president. The U.S. bombing of Cambodia ends. The Supreme Court rules on Roe v. Wade. An Arab Oil Embargo triggers the 1973 energy crisis resulting in high prices and long gas lines. The World Trade Center officially opens. Elvis Presley does a concert for over a billion people worldwide. Secretariat wins the Belmont Stakes. Billed as The Battle of the Sexes, Billie Jean King defeats Bobby Riggs ... and Texas has a whorehouse in it! Lord have mercy on our souls. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to be asked to direct my first Ann Arbor Civic Theatre production. When first approached, I resisted. I didn't know the show (don't even ask about the movie!). But after reading the script and listening to the original cast recording, the passion, which was lacking was ignited and the creative juices began to flow. This is a simple tale, based on actual events, about one man's mission in life: to tell others how to live their's - and the hypocrisy that follows. Why is it that "dogooders" are usually the most intolerant? Too much time on their hands or no life of their own, I reckori. At any rate, sit back, take in the lovely sites at the Chicken Ranch, and enjoy the show. The eyes of Texas are upon you! - Edmond Reynolds Acknowledgements Thank you to the following for providing us with incredible gifts ... time, support, items and more.

Past productions include Sound ofMusic and Brigadoon in California. Still only brave enough to try for minor or ensemble parts, she loves being in theatre. When not treading the boards, she plays swing on tenor sax and volunteers at The Ark. Sadly, her dogs, Bijou and Toto won't be able to watch (they're underage), but she is happy to have her brother and niece and nephew's support. Thanks Todd and Gussie and Zeke! Andy Ballnik (Ensemble) is happy to be back on stage after directing The Nerd for A2CT earlier this season. Andy's performances have included On The Town,Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Cabaret, West Side Story,Bye Bye Birdie, Tommy,A Chorus Line, Ragtime, BIG, The Nerd and Miss Firecracker Contest. Andy is a graduate of the musical theatre program at the American Musical and Dramatics Academy in NYC and is currently at EMU in the education program, hoping to teach and direct theatre professionally. Thanks to friends and family for all their support and to a great cast and crew for making this show a great experience. Jason Eugene Bean (Ensemble) was born in Bloomington, IL, lived ten years in Marquette, MI, four years in Cleveland, OH and currently resides in Metro Detroit. The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is jason's second outing with A2CT. He previously performed in Fiddler on the Roof as a Russian soldier.

David Beaulieu (Ensemble) is pleased to be appearing in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Favorite A2CT roles include a gambler in Guys and Dolls, a Shark gang member (and briefly Glad Hand) in West Side Story, Benjamin in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and an ensemble member in My One and Only. David would like to thank his parents for their support and transportation, the cast for such a great show and, of course Ed, Tawna and the rest of the staff. Alexandra Berneis (Doatsey Mae) is thrilled to be working with A2CT once again. With A2CT, she has been active both on and offstage, including roles in The Scarlet Pimpernel and Jekyll and Hyde, and designing costumes for Chicago. She has also been seen onstage with Dexter Community Players (Sweeney Todd, West Side Story) and most recently, she designed costumes for Michigan Classical Repertory's production of Tartuffe. And as always, love to Andy. Mark Bernstein (Edsel Mackey) has lost count of the number of shows he's done with A2CT. His most recent roles include Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof and E.J.

Favorite past roles, with other companies, include Miss Hannigan in Annie, Aldonza in Man of LaMancha, and Ronnette in Little Shop Of Horrors. When not on stage, Linzi can be found working as a full time nanny. In her spare time Linzi enjoys spending as much time outdoors as possible, making other people laugh, (even if it is at her own expense), wearing cool hats,hosting some mean karaoke, and pretty much singing anywhere she can. She sends much love to her Mom and Dad for being her biggest fans. She would also like to thank all of the A2CT oldies but goodies for making a newbie feel so welcome. She personally thinks "Twenty-Four Hours" is never enough time to spend with those you truly like and has loved every hour of time spent with this cast and crew. Lawrence Bryk (Narrator, Chip Brewster, The Governor) is appearing in A2CT for the first time. He's been on stage with the Burns Park Players, Dexter Community Players (Beadle Bamford, Sweeney Todd) and six seasons of the University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society (Francesco, Gondoliers; Saba-san, Mikado). By day, a stock broker with Edward Jones. By night, well, there's this fabulous Cowboy hat and, let's face it, who would YOU rather hang out with after a hard day of helping the Dow break records? Yeehaw! Jennifer Hill Buehrer (Ginger) is happy to be playing the "head whore" - while still coping with being the oldest of the bunch! She has appeared in several A2CT shows, including Chicago (where she first became accustomed to performing in her underwear), Steel Pier, A Chorus Line, and Jesus Christ Superstar. She wants to thank everyone involved with this production for making it a truly exceptional and enjoyable experience. And thanks to Dave -just a few more days until you get your wife back! Alan P. Burk (Melvin P. Thorpe) is pleased to be making his A2CT debut with this production, and looking forward to many more in the future.

Katie would like to thank her wonderful cast and crew, especially the whores, for being so truly brilliant this entire run and her amazing family for everything else. Anne Kiser (Durla) is thrilled to be cast in her first performance with A2CT! She gets a kick out of teaching third grade during the day, then becoming one of Mona's 'girls' at night. Anne enjoys making her own jewelry, fiddling around on the computer, reading fantasy/sci-fi/horror, and karaoke! She wants to give a special thank you to Chris, her husband of seven years, for all his support and encouragement. Craig Nichols (Featured Aggie Dancer) has participated in five A2CT shows: West Side Story, Chicago, and On the Town to name a few. He has just returned from a successful run of A Chorus Line with Destination Theatre in Canton, where he played Don. He first heard of this show when he was "knockin' da boots" with choreographer Tawna Dabney. He carne in late, but was warmly welcomed by the extremely talented cast.

He thanks his wonderful family and his best friends Adam and Grant. Jeff Steinhauer (Mayor Rufus Poindexter) is shocked and surprised that A2CT is letting him open his mouth on stage yet again. This is Jeff's fifth A2CT show either on stage or behind the scenes. Most recently, Jeff played Benny Southstreet in Guys and Dolls. Jeff's other "on-stage, mouth-open" experiences have included work with Dexter Community Players and UMGASS here in Michigan, along with a few other community theater groups in his home state of California. Jeff is in awe of the talent represented in this cast and crew and has thoroughly enjoyed working with them all.

Claire Stevens (Linda Lou) thanks everyone who helped make this production a fabulous experience, with a tinge of bawdiness. Claire previously performed in the A2CT 75th Anniversary Gala and directed A2CT Junior Theatre, The Emperor's New Clothes.

To all of you she knows and adores in the audience, a toast of apple wine. Enjoy! Charles Sutherland (Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd) is honored to be back in this wonderful theatre!

Charlie is thrilled to work with Wendy Wright again and wishes to thank Jim Posante for his inspiration and support and Burnette Staebler, who first performed here in 1929, who is in his thoughts! Erik Wright-Olsen (Senator Wingwoah, C. J. Scruggs and Graphic Designer) After an eight-year break from the stage Erik suddenly appeared in half of this sea- son, which goes to show that some people never learn. He appeared as Nicely-Nicely Johnson in Guys and Dolls, singing in a vocal range he thought he lost at the age of 12; and as Axel in The Nerd, hovering in the background and sniping. By day a video editor for the Michigan Channel, he's also a freelance technician for the Big Ten Conference and occasional camera operator at Corneas! in Dearborn Heights. Erik would like to thank Amy for everything. Wendy Wright (Miss Mona Stangley} was seen by A2CT audiences earlier this season as Kate Keller in All My Sons.

She thinks this is a wonderful group to work with that offers great opportunities for the community to become involved. Tawna Dabney (Choreographer) is first and foremost Damon's mom! She teaches various dance classes throughout Washtenaw County and has both performed in and choreographed a number of fabulous A2CT productions! She is a dedicated member of A2CT and cherishes this experience working on BLWI71! Each show has its particular shining moments and this production has been chock full of them that run the gamut from fall down on the rehearsal space floor hilarity to boo-hooin' after every doggone sentimental musical number. This has truly been a joyous experience. She is thankful for the last minute opportunity to work with Ed, Eric and this ridiculously talented cast. She is honored to be part of this production team and blessed to have had the opportunity to work closely with such a fun-loving, hard-working cast! A few shout outs are in order: Ed for being so organized, enthusiastic and such fun to work with; Eric for being a musical genius who is so willing to accommodate me and my crazy ideas and for adding music when I had more moves to give the Aggies; to Craig for saving us at the last minute and giving me such talent to work with - smooth as butta baby; Ian, OMG who are you really? This guy is unbelievable - he not only did all his "duties" but created a website for the cast AND graced us with his ':Aggie-ness;" shout out to the WHOLE production staff from producer and costume designers to prop and stage managers - FABULOUS!! This has proven to be a terrific team that worked very well together. Once again, this cast is talented, hard working and such fun to be around. Such appreciation, dedication and crazy energy is not to be taken for granted. She wishes to thank each cast member for his or her focus and intensity - what a blessing!! :) To the "ladies"- work it out sistas! It all started with y' all at rehearsal and that positive attitude and energy lasted throughout the long haul of the rehearsal process. Love to each of y' all!! :) Finally, she sends out a special dedication to her wonderful son, Damon Miquel. Ian Hyatt (Assistant Director, Ensemble) is thrilled to be working on his second A2CT show. This january, he designed the lighting for A2CT's Guys and Dolls. Ian also designed the lighting for a number of other productions including MUSKET's Pippin, The Wild Party, Titanic, Dreamgirls and Damn Yankees. This summer he will be designing the lighting for Dexter Community Player's Oklahoma! Having not been on stage in twelve years, Ian is excited to be experiencing the other side of theatrics once again. Ian would like to thank Ed, Eric and Tawna for making this a wonderful experience as well as this outstanding cast for their dedication to the show. Nathaniel Madura (Producer, Lighting Designer, Set Builder) This is Nathaniel's third season with Ann Arbor Civic Theatre, in his time with A2CT he has designed lights for seven shows. He has also been very active with A2CT's junior theatre program, and has designed lights for their last five shows. This has been Nathaniel's most challenging production to date, as he ended up pulling triple duty, but has also been one of his most rewarding experiences. During the day Nathaniel is an Engineer in Research with the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, and has a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech. Additionally, he wants to thank Lawrence for donating more of himself to the show than anyone ever should. Edmond Reynolds (Director) is making his directorial debut with A2CT having recently directed Little Shop ofHorrors for The Saline Area Players. On stage Ed has played his share of white collar dads: Doc Gibbs, Our Town (A1CT); FDR, Annie; Oliver Hix, Music Man; Warnock "Ticky" Waldgrave, The Nerd (A2CT) and big mean guys: Big jule, Guys & Dolls (A2CT), judge Turpin, Sweeney Todd; Miles Gloriosus, ... Forum; and Officer Krupke, West Side Story. Ed wishes to thank his talented, committed and passionate cast and staff for their hard work and allowing him to be both dad and big mean guy to all of them. Special thanks to Eric for making them sound so great, Tawna for making them move so well and Ian for taking care of everything I asked for and keeping me sane. To Charlie S. and Wendy W. a heartfelt thank you for being such team players and setting the stellar example that all cast members looked up to. Ed will be directing Sweet Charity next season for A2CT. Mike Sielaff (Set Builder) would like to point out that alcohol and volunteering for things do not go hand in hand. More specifically his wife and cosmos have gotten him into more things than he cares to mention. Thanks Cathy Cassar for a set that he can build and the help from the cast. Look for his handy work in The Full Monty when he again builds and designs yet another set. Yippee!! Wendy Sielaff (Stage Manager) Wendy is thrilled to be helping out Ed in this fun production. Wendy's work is mainly behind the scenes. She recently directed the first ever show for Destination Theatre: A Chorus Line. She opened A2CT's season with West Side Story and will open the season again with the new hit The Full Monty. You can also see her on stage in this production as Wulla jean and Church Lady... Don't blink! Thanks to Mike who encourages and feeds her passion ... theater. Bob Skon (Sound Designer) has been involved with A2CT for now his fifth season. He's been behind the scenes designing and running sound for many A2CT productions. He has been on stage as an ensemble member in Evita and On the Town, and had the role of john Utterson in jekyll and Hyde. Bob is also a member of the A2CT Board of Directors. By day he is the Chief Engineer at Michigan Radio. Eric Walton (Musical Director, Band Leader) has been dedicated, from a very young age, to passionate music making. He still remembers his first performance, when his father taught him to play "The Victors" at the age of three. Ever since, he has tried to tackle all musical projects with the same spirit of ruthless and unabashed enthusiasm. He played piano, cello, and sang, growing up. Finding, however, that music required skill as well as gumption, he dropped his weaker instruments to focus on piano. In college, in an effort to become "cool~ Eric studied jazz piano at U of M. He graduated, with a degree but no lifestyle changes, in 2005, and worked for a year on cruise ships. Finding "coolness" overrated and probably out of reach, Eric returned to his true love, musical theater. Now he directs and accompanies shows whenever possible, spending his days working as a classical accompanist at U of M. Hopefully, someone will find a cure for Eric's musical schizophrenia, but till then, shows like Best Little Whorehouse provide a good outlet. Thanks to the cast for the all their incredible work and support and especially to Ed and Tawna, for their support, love, and hard work. Barb Wells (Co-Costumer) has worked on numerous shows in her many years with A2CT; coordinating costumes, collecting props, and designing and building sets. She once again takes on the challenge of creating and coordinating costumes with cohort in crime, Cheryl Berteel. Barb works at the University of Michigan and enjoys bargain hunting, reading, and doing crossword puzzles.
