Actor Spotlight: Strother Stingley

Honestly, though, Strother may need multiple spotlights for all the characters he plays in The 39 Steps!

revealPP:  The last time we saw you on the Parkway Playhouse stage was in Little Shop of Horrors… In that show you also played several different characters.  Do you play more in this one, or in that?

Strother: Twice as many as Little Shop, as a matter of fact. I love it. I could do more!
Mr Memory
PP:  Are you drawn to plays in which you play multiple characters?
Strother: Yes, but just as much as I am drawn to any good “character” work. I love me some eccentric roles!
you were...
PP:  So, what have you been doing this past year?
Strother: Since Little Shop? Hmmm… I played the Wolf and MilkyWhite in HART’s Into The Woods, then immediately went into their 2 man production of The Mystery Of Irma Vep (in another multiple role role), a national tour with Immediate Theatre Project’s It’s A Wonderful Life: Live From Radio WVL in which I played 17 different characters, The Musical Of Musicals (The Musical) at 35 Below in Asheville, North Carolina Stage Company’s production of Jeeves In Bloom saw me as the explosive french chef Anatole, and most recently HART’s The Nerd as Axel.
       Now that The 39 Steps is up and running I am in rehearsals as Lazar Wolf in HART’s Fiddler On The Roof (a role I played at Parkway Playhouse in 2006!). All that while working a day job and moving my mother from one county to another, one house to another, and alllllll that that entails hahaha.
PP:  Never a dull moment with Strother at the wheel!
Leave the doldrums of your regular life with a trip to Parkway Playhouse to see Strother and the rest of this amazing cast.
