Some friends, and a few family members, have mentioned how difficult it sometimes is keeping up with my schedule. As the mother of 24-year old Sam and 14-year old Cade, a training coordinator for American Airlines Reservations, and as an actress, I do tend to stay very busy. If you've had trouble "Keeping Up With Cheryl Ann" it is my hope you will find this site beneficial. And, I promise, I won't accuse you of stalking me!
On April 17 I will be participating in another "den" reading of Reunions, the latest script by my favorite playwright, Bill Cissna. This will be the 4th den reading I've done with Bill.
The reading itself is a reunion of sorts. Everyone but Zac was involved in the staged production of Bill's first play, Conversations In A Cafe.
The Female Cast is: Gretchen – Mary Lea Williams Susie – Cheryl Ann Roberts Mary – Myla O’Brien Denise – Carson Gregory Chrissy – Rebecca Clark
The Male Cast is: Cameron Williams Scott Terrill Paul O'Brien Zac Hiatt
Did you notice that the male character names are not listed? It's not an oversight. I truly don't know the characters the men will be reading. Bill only provided us gender specific parts of the script. I'm very excited to see how the evening plays out!
Today Cade decided to write a story. When I asked him what it would be about, he said it would take place in a toy store. He said Mikey would be in the story, as well as Jazmin and Cosi (Mikey's two dogs who we kept for a year when he was on tour). Our cats Lizzie and Buddy (who died two years ago) would also be in the story.
He was sharpening his pencil as I headed to the shower to get ready for my afternoon at Theatre Alliance. Forty-five minutes later, I kissed him goodbye and he was still writing.
Cade's creativity never fails to entertain me. If you'd like to read Trapped In The Toy Store, exactly as he wrote it, click here.
