Sam Kilbride – Annabella (and others)
Sam is a 2015 graduate of Johnson State College with a BA in Theatre and Drama. She has called M&D her home for several years now. Previous roles include Joy in The Tin Woman, The Beggar Woman in Sweeney Todd, Vixen in The Reindeer Monologues, and Dr. Livingstone in Agnes of God. (That last one was a long time ago at college, but she always mentions it because it was her favorite.) She is excited to be a part of this show and hopes you enjoy watching it as much as the cast has enjoyed making it! Thanks for coming!

Grayson Smith – Clown 1
Exactly what Grayson was doing for the past seven months is unclear. Some reports say he was playing Fred in Oklahoma. Others say he was playing Duke of Weselton in Disney’s Frozen, Jr. Some even say he was playing Heart-Attack in the multi award-winning production of Emotional Baggage. What we do know is, that here at M&D, he has played The Bird Seller in Sweeney Todd, Gabe Lawson in Things My Mother Taught Me, and Chef Louis in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr.

Fiona Brosnan – Clown 2
Fiona is a freshman at Fryeburg Academy and is excited about her 18th show. Her most recent roles include Sarah in Guys and Dolls and Belle in Beauty and the Beast. She sings, acts, dances, and, offstage, loves horses. She is grateful for the support and transportation from her parents.
Ken Martin – Director
This show marks Ken’s 20th anniversary here at the helm of M&D. It has been a rocky road – from Extremities in July of 1999 at The Echo Building in Conway, to The 39 Steps here at Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse in 2019, – but one filled to the brim with love and support. With the move this March to the Playhouse, he hopes that M&D has finally found a forever home. Ken last appeared onstage as Brian in The Shadow Box, a play that means a lot to him both on and off-stage. He last directed The Reindeer Monologues and the multiple NHTA Award-Winning play August: Osage County, two shows he had been wanting to do for years. As always, he would like to thank the audience for playing their role in making this production a success, and to Deb, Dan, Eric, Sam, Grayson, Fiona, Dennis, and Mark for bringing his artistic vision to life.
