Cast Biographies

 Ken

Ken Paris (Jack Hendricks) most recently appeared in Playhouse 22’s productions of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Curtains, As Bees In Honey Drown, The Crucible, How To Succeed In Business, and You Can’t Take It With You.  He is a familiar face in PH22’s box office, produced last season’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Lend Me A Tenor, and has stage managed A Christmas Carol for the past three years.  He also appeared at Villager’s Theatre in A Few Good Men and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  He wants to apologize to his fiancée Pamela who is probably sitting in the audience worrying if Ken and Jack share a little too many personality traits in common…

 Angela Angela Dohl (Camille)  Damn  Yankees  at Plays In The Park.  At PH22, she was most recently seen as Mazeppa in  Gypsy.  Favorite roles include Sister Robert Anne in  Nunsense, the Narrator in  Joseph…, Ella in  Bells Are Ringing, and Hattie in  Kiss Me Kate.  Angela is the treasurer of the Board of Directors of PH22 and produces our annual A Christmas Carol.
