Lolita Lozano (Laura McFarland-Bukalski)
Laura McFarland-Bukalski ) has been doing theatre for many years, and is glad she found CAT’S Bi-Focals. She has been in several productions over the past 6 years, and absolutely loves it! She, like Lolita, is experiencing the Empty Nest Syndrome. Her Leo (and line runner) is off to UVA this year, but she’s not planning on “whacking” her husband Stan any time soon – he has to run lines with her now 😊 As always, much love and thanks to Ma & Daddy, Stan, Leo and our Bearded Dragon, Darwin (she listens to me run my lines)
Louie Da Louse Lozano (Albert Allen)
Albert Allen is happy to be performing with Bifocals during this turbulant time of lock downs and restrictions. Al last performed at the Cultural Arts Center two years ago in the comedy Arsenic and Old Lace. OTARP and HCP are always fun times and Al’s favorite venues when he is not busy with Bifocals. He is also the author of Grandpappy’s Farm which Bifocals performed prior to the Covid-19 era. No matter how old you get, acting keeps you young and alert. Thanks for supporting the arts and we hope you enjoy the show.

Peter Holleran is originally from New York, but has been living in Richmond area since 1997. He retired from information technology management and is currently a wedding officiant. This is his third show with Bifocals.
