Caroline was seen in three productions at PCPH last season: Curtains, The Addams Family, and Laughing Stock. She is directing this season's opener, the musical Annie.

PCPH has produced The Glass Menagerie twice.  In 1985, it was directed by Jim Poor. The cast included Emily Poor as Amanda, Marc R. Adams as Tom, Brian Williams as Jim, and Beth Hennon as Laura.

Director Larry Sutton presented his production in 2003.  His cast included Bethany Bax as Amanda, TJ Tincher as Jim, and Allison Larty as Laura. Keith Bodnarick and Zachary Spicer shared the part of Tom at different ages of his life.

The Glass Menagerie is a classic American play that should be seen by every student interested in theater.  Don't miss this opportunity to see an innovative production.  And congratulations and "break a leg" to Caroline!
