Founding Producing Artistic Director Eric Peterson will be roasted by long time colleagues, friends and community members in an evening of music and laughs to benefit Oldcastle Theatre Company Saturday March 2 at 7:30 p.m.
“The idea of roasting Eric came when we were batting around ideas for a different kind of fundraiser,” according to Oldcastle’s Company Manager Jana Lillie. Someone mentioned the old Dean Martin Roasts on television and everyone perked up. Then the question, but whom could we roast. Eric wasn’t there so we decided he would be the perfect roastie.”
Pianist and singer Matt Edwards and singers Amy Gaither Hayes and Richard Howe will supply the songs while a host friends including Gary Alan Poe, Peter Langstaff, Christine Decker Tim Foley, Erika Floriani, Willy Jones, Natalie Wilder and Patrick Ellison Shea, Jody Schade, John Shannahan and others will tell regale the audience with stories of Peterson, his foibles and phobias. The object of the roasters’ vitriol and violets will also have an opportunity to rebut their claims.
