We currently have nine Open Book Players board members and we would like to introduce you to our first two members…Andy Tolman (President) and Ginger Smith (Vice-President)…
Andy Tolman has been involved with Open Book Players since the turn of the century. He’s portrayed a wide variety of characters, often within moments of each other. He’s been clerk of the Open Book board since 2003, and recently was also promoted to President. Andy started his theater career quite late in life, and has enjoyed the last 25 years of amusing audiences at Cumston Hall, Lakewood, and
Gaslight, as well as Johnson Hall and various Open Book tour stops.
Ginger Smith…When I retired I felt I finally had the time to pursue my love of theater. Lucy Rioux gave me an opportunity to perform in the Miracle Worker at Cumston Hall. After that I went to an Open Book Workshop hosted by Lucy who asked me if I’d like to audition for one of their productions. I’ve never looked back and have been involved with the Open Book Players ever since.; as a performer and a member of the board of directors; currently as Vice Chairman. Open Book Players is a wonderful group of talented performers who enjoy mentoring new performers and performing for adults and children. Please join us for auditions or catching one of their outstanding performances. You’ll be glad you did!
