Cast profiles: the Dudgeon Family

The action in Shaw’s The Devil’s Disciple starts with the Dudgeon family, solid and respectable citizens of the town of Websterbridge… except for one or two black sheep. Let’s meet the actors playing the members of the clan.

Greg Allen (Richard Dudgeon) is happy to be working on this wonderful show with a fabulous cast. He had a crack at the role of Dick Dudgeon years before at KWLT in a staged reading, and has enjoyed reprising the role. Greg was most recently seen on KWLT’s stage as Rudi in “East of Berlin”. Prior to that he played Jeremy Winthrop in Century Theatre Guild’s “Will You Still Love Me In The Morning?”, a British farce. A notable role for him was in KWLT’s “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?”, where he played Nick, a biology professor who is tormented for an evening when a faculty party turns into a game of cat and mouse.

Lenore Brooks (Aunt Winnifred) is appearing for the first time as an actor at the KWLT.  You can usually find her behind the scenes as the Vice President or designing sets or the new lobby refresh.  She has enjoyed her time in the not so bright spotlight and may venture onto the stage again in the future.

When the opportunity to perform in “The Devil’s Disciple” arose, Charlie Griffin (Christy Dudgeon) just could not say “No”. This is Charlie’s debut in the audio only format, and with KWLT. In recent years, Charlie has performed in “Oliver!” and “Ragtime” on stage for TCP of New Hamburg. Special thanks to my wife and family for always looking out for my best interests. It is my sincerest wish that you may be inspired to act with passion in all that you do, just as the Devil’s Disciple does. And please, enjoy this classic as it’s retold through new vision!

Victoria Nagy (Essie) is extremely excited to be a part of the cast for “The Devil’s Disciple”. Her last role in community theatre was in high school – it’s great to be back in action! Thanks go out to her family and friends for their support, to her partner Brad for putting up with her accent practice and to her dog Ash for brightening up rehearsals (behind the scenes). On behalf of herself and the cast, please enjoy this amazing show!

Hamilton resident Katherine Taylor (Annie Dudgeon) has immensely enjoyed working with Joe and the cast on “The Devil’s Disciple”. Originally from Oxford, England, Katherine was involved in amateur dramatics for many years, everything from semi-professional Opera chorus, to Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, playing half of the comedy duo in Pantomimes and to singing with the altos in numerous choral works. However, she had not done any performing for almost 20 years until she responded to an audition announcement on Facebook in the Spring of 2021. Katherine is enormously grateful to her ever-patient and ultra-supportive husband Bruce and her Scottie dog Gina who doesn’t complain too loudly about the hours on Zoom!
