Cindee Rolston (Connie)
Rejoining the CAT theatre team has been a dream for Cindee, after they sat backstage during Exit Laughing and imagined what might come next for Connie and family! (Well done, Paul Elliott! We’re available for consultation if you’re interested : ) She’s grateful for her family’s loving encouragement… and she wishes Doc and RL were here to share the joy she finds in playing with such a talented, hardworking group.

Joshua Shay (Bobby)
Joshua is thrilled to be appearing in his first production with HATTheatre. Joshua has been acting for as long back as he can remember, whether it be in productions, classes, or clubs; his need to perform is like his need for oxygen. Most recent previous appearances include Hawks Ridge (Sergeant) and A Flea In Her Ear (Camile Chandebise) as well as previous seasons' Legacy Of Light (St Lambert) all at The Lynn Theatre. Joshua would like to dedicate this performance to his grandfather David Clow.

His recent works include On The Air Radio Players' productions of A Hearthside Holiday as Watson and Mrs. Moonlight as Percy; Reveler’s The Witching Hour, narrating W.W. Jacobs' The Monkey's Paw; reenacting at the historic St. John's Church; and portrayed Leonardo da Vinci with the Carpenter Science Theater Company. He would love to thank his family, friends, his colleagues at Ravenchase Adventures, the cast, and directors Larry Gard and Ann for their emotional and continuing support, for reigniting his passion for theater, and for this amazing opportunity.
