The Fall of the House of Usher- Edgar Allan Poe
The Fall of the House of Usher- Edgar Allan Poe

As the story always goes; its a sad day when a theater show ends. But the actors, who often go thankless and without reward, deserve their commendation.

I must admit that being a director isn’t an easy job, but the reward is just as incredible as taking that final bow. It has been my pleasure to work with these young people, and I would always encourage you, my readers, to participate in community events and theater. Much like community service with High School and Middle School youth group; it has changed my life. I consider it the ironic comedy of life to “say never” only to be doing what you swore if in the first place.

I am happy to be here as a proud co-director to congratulate my cast who worked so hard over those 5 months to make this the Number 1 youth show to date! Thank you for everything.

1. Neel Gill – Edgar Allan Poe

2. Zachary Thaler – Edgar / Officer / Judge

3. Shadya Rose – Madeline Usher

4. James Tompkins – Roderick Usher / Old Man / Judge

5. James Masten – Sante / Officer / Raven


(Stow these names away: you might see them on the big screen or Broadway one day!)

My first real test at directing talented young people is finally coming to fruition!

We have an amazing cast: Zachary Thaler, Jamie Thompkins, Ravneel “Neel” Gill, Shadya Rose, and James Masten. It is co-directed by Evelyn Rice and myself and stage managed by Jessica Hagey.

Come see the madness… or the sanity of Poe, as his works come alive before your eyes! There will be unexplainable occurances, deep psychological thrills, and MURDER.
