ROSWELL – ENMU-Roswell's "Center Stage Players" are presenting a holiday tale, My Three Angels, set in the penal colony of French Guiana, Christmas, 1910.
The performances are Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 24 at 2 p.m., and Monday, Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the ENMU-Roswell Performing Arts Center. Adult admission is $4. Admission for students and senior citizens is $3. The first 30 students with an ID at any one performance will receive a free ticket. Groups are welcome. Please call 624.7398 and leave a message.
The play tells the story of a kind, but not too successful, shopkeeper who hires three convicts to fix his roof, and they become his family's guardian angels. The convicts' well-honed criminal skills, with the help of their snake, "Adolph," prove to be hilarious, warm-hearted and effective in dispensing justice to any and all who would harm "their" family.
The Ducotel family is portrayed by Joe Flores (Felix), Kim Rutley (Emilie), and Kristin Alumbaugh (Marie-Louise). Bill Johnstone and Brady Crump are the villainous relatives, Henri and Paul. The snoopy and cheating customer is played by Carolyn Anderson. A special cameo performance features Tom Blake (of "Music Man" fame) as the Lieutenant. The dangerously divine convicts complete the cast with Adam McMullen as Joseph, John Schlegal as Jules, and William Siefkas as Alfred.
