FOR SHOESTRING PLAYERS’  Night of the Iguana

 Santa Cruz Shoestring Players at CPAC raises the curtain on its 2010 theater season with “Night of the Iguana” at 7 p.m. October 14.  Directed by Roberta Konen, the show will mark the first time Tennessee Williams’ work has been produced in the area.  

The ambitious production, set in a 1940 Mexican seaside town, deals with the problems and passions of its powerful characters.  The cast, according to Konen is, “…composed of some of the finest actors in the area; our audience is in for an unbelievable treat.”


Newcomers to the Shoestring stage are Rio Rico resident Sheila Stewart,  Regina Ford from Tubac, Quail Creek’s James Henriksen, Amanda Urbaniak of Sahuarita, and Mary Lee Taylor of Green Valley, who has served as musical director in past shows.  Also appearing are Thomas Curran and Roger Kreitzburg. Returning is Tom Bushee of Tubac, who most recently appeared in Shoestring’s “Blithe Spirit”.  He plays the 97 year old poet, “Nonno” in “Iguana”.
