Greg has been on stage on and off since his college days. One of his early parts was playing Felix in “The Odd Couple” when he shared the stage with his girlfriend (later to be wife) Eileen who played a Pigeon sister. As has his character George Hay, some of Greg’s favorite roles include: Falstaff in the Merry Wives of Windsor and Elyot Chase in “Private Lives”.
Greg is returning at the encouragement of his wife Eileen and is excited to join such a talented team on this production. Greg feels a special kinship with his character as he occasionally in real life has been on the receiving end of his wife’s frustrations and, as a matter of fact, suffered only minor injuries during occasional ‘errant pokes’ during sword rehearsals. As always, with the ZCT group, he feels a kindred spirit, as his grandparents Bob and Mabel Adams were early dedicated members of the ZCT board.

I grew up watching the Carol Burnett Show. The ensemble comedy in her show was the best. I still watch it any time I can catch a rerun and even though I know most of the lines, it just makes me giggle. If you are not aware of the history of “Moon Over Buffalo”, it was originally written with Carol Burnett in mind for the female lead. She was subsequently nominated for a Tony award for best actress for her performance. I have always wanted to direct this show with a great ensemble and this is a dream team in cast and crew. They have worked so hard as a team…and we have giggled…a LOT! I hope that you will be able to take the next couple of hours and get away from the insanity of this world and just have a good giggle. Audrey Hepburn said, “ l love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” And when we need to return to reality we must arm ourselves with laughter. “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” – Mark Twain
Mad cap antics and shenanigans have run amok while rehearsing which brings Michelle to warn; “This show is a riot. Your abs will get a work out and you’ll likely want to see it again and again.” To our cast and crew, “Let us not drown any books or break our staff but by all means, break a leg”.
