Estashea Hawthorne (Miss Scarlet)
Hi I’m Estashea Hawthorne, I’m from Ontario, a small town Southern California. I’ve been acting since I could talk, starting out doing small shows in front of my family. I did ballet, tap, karate, and fell in love with theater freshman. After high school I became a judge for DTASC Fall Festivals and Shakespeare festivals, where I also competed. Some of my favorite shows include the Lion King, Hamlet, Romeo And Juliet, Westside story, Alice in Wonderland, Into The Woods(I played 4 different characters, Diviners, and FAME. I’m so excited to join the community theater here in Palestine Texas, and I want see what I learn from all the wonderfully talented people here. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
Adam Armstrong (Col. Mustard)
A relative newcomer to theater, I appeared in my first show at PCT in the summer of 2018 as Captain Hook in Peter Pan. It fulfilled a dream and provided me with a memory that I will always treasure as I was able to share the stage with my daughter who played the part of Tiger Lilly. I guess you could say the rest is history; several shows later I'm still at it. We're so lucky to have the Palestine Community Theater as a cultural asset in our town, and I have learned so much through mentors in the theatre "family", and it is a family of sorts. Other roles include Stromboli in My Son Pinocchio, Tinsworthy in 9-5, and Bad Santa and Mr. Greenway in Elf. I've also worked in set construction, as a stage hand, and assistant director. There's room at the Texas for you too. In every part, big or small, it is my aspiration to make that character come to life and to be as entertaining and memorable for the audience as possible.

Sandy Webb (Mrs. White)
My love for theater began when I saw the movie version of “Kiss Me Kate” when I was in elementary school. From then on, any time a musical came on I had to watch it. Of course, I loved the drama as well. My journey with the Palestine Community Theater began my 8th Grade year back in 1978 when Stacy Jamison said “You need to come try out for The Sound of Music and do it with me.” That journey took me to their productions of “South Pacific” and “Oklahoma”. Then life happened and I got busy, but after marriage and moving back to Palestine, I returned and began again in the production of “Ghosts” directed by Sandy Hanson in 2009 (along with my youngest, Nathan) and I haven’t stopped since. I’ve worked with so many wonderful people. I’ve been a lead, a supporting actor, ensemble, stagehand, stage manager, director, assistant director, makeup person, concession stand worker, and set builder. I love my PCT family, but more importantly the magic we deliver to the community. Theatre brings us all together. As a 1983 graduate of PHS – I love what Palestine people are capable of – we have so much talent here and it’s important to support it. I am so excited to be working on this production of “Clue:The Musical” with these people - some of whom literally grew up in my kitchen, or worked with me outside of the theater, - it is such a joy to find another connection that brings us together in life. I hope you enjoy the show!!!!!
