Running To Places does Damn Yankees
Running To Places finished their 2008 season in August with their production of Damn Yankees at Lansing Middle School, in Lansing, New York. And, as usual for this group, did it up so professionally and with such great spirit that would rival any cast of professional thespians. They are an amazing group of young performers and gave stellar performances way above my expectations. It was thoroughly enjoyable.
Timothy Fuchs and Eliza Vann were wonderful as Joe and Meg Boyd. Their duets and tender moments together touched the heart.
Emily Goodell played Gloria Thorpe, the reporter, with her always hilarious and high spirited enthusiasm. And Elias Spector-Zabusky as Mr. Applegate was so entertaining and diabolical.
The ball team gave great group performances with fabulous choreography and a bat juggling routine that was amazing.
Anais Duplan was, once again, so wonderful as Lola. She was comical, sweet, and, despite her devious intentions, became quite lovable in the end.
Hats off to all the cast and crew and support staff. And a big round of applause to Joey, Gail, Todd, and Mike for the great guidance and inspiration you have given this fantastic group of kids. They have done you and themselves proud and I can hardly wait for the 2009 season. BRAVO!
