JEAN ADAMS (Mrs. Fisher)
The last time Jean was on stage at Westfield was in November 2019 in Over the River and Through the Woods in the old facility on state road 32. Fortunately, she can once again take part in a play. Enjoy, stay safe and well, and we'll see you again.
SUSAN HILL (Mildred Sloan)
Susan is excited to be on the stage again at the new Westfield Playhouse. She appeared as a talking Christmas tree in Christmas at the Playhouse. She’s worked at several local community theatres as an actor, set designer and decorator, stage crew, costumer, and assistant director. She appeared last fall as Madeline Livingston in an outdoor production of The Women of Lockerbie. Some of her favorite roles include The Stage Manager in Our Town, Ethel Thayer in On Golden Pond, and Clairee Belcher in Steel Magnolias. She’d like to thank director Doug Davis and his lovely assistant director Jan McGill for giving her the chance to play the wonderful role of Mildred. And she’d especially like to thank her talented husband Mike Mellott for his unwavering support.
KEN KINGSHILL (Hector Lopez)
This is Ken’s first production with Westfield Playhouse/Main Street Productions. Favorite roles include Dr. Carelli in Agatha Christy’s Black Coffee (Lebanon’s Center Stage Theater); Jeremy Warander in Agatha Christy’s Black Widow (Center Stage); and Anthony Lefcourt in The Butler Did It (Carmel Community Players). Thanks to Doug Davis for the opportunity to appear on Westfield’s new stage!
SABRINA LANG (Alice Sloan)
Sabrina is an Encore-nominated actress who studied at the New York Film Academy. She just turned 25 and is thrilled to be celebrating her quarter-life crisis by debuting at the Westfield Playhouse. This is also her debut of playing a "pregnant" role, which just so happens to be her biggest fear, followed closely by failure and death. Cheers to 25!
DUANE LEATHERMAN (Abe Dreyfuss)
Duane has been involved with many Central Indiana Community Theaters for over 50 years, both as an actor and director. Over the years, he has been fortunate enough to play many memorable characters such as Lancelot, Birdie, Cardinal Richelieu, Sherlock Holmes, Prof. Van Helsing, Mayor Shinn, Isidor Straus, a “little old dancing lady on a walker”, and a caterpillar, to name a few. He has gotten to play his favorite character and American hero, Benjamin Franklin in 1776: The Musical twice, as well as another favorite character, FDR, four times. He was last seen with Main Street Productions in another of his favorite roles, Willy, in Sunshine Boys for which he was nominated for an Encore Award. He has received numerous Encore Award nominations over the years and has won three. He is excited to be working with two theatre veterans and icons, Doug and Jan, for the first time, as well as his very talented fellow actors. He is in his 38th year of teaching mathematics and computer science at Butler University. Go Dawgs!
MATT MCKEE (Jerry Sloan)
Matt is thrilled to be making his debut at Westfield Playhouse! He was last seen as Richard Amory in Agatha Christie's Black Coffee at Center Stage Community Theatre in September 2020, having returned to the stage after a 15-year hiatus. Matt would like to thank director Doug Davis for the opportunity, the entire cast and crew for being so wonderful to work with, and especially his longsuffering wife and two (soon to be three!) children for always being his biggest fans.
KEVIN SHADLE (Al Wasserman)
Kevin is happy to be back on the Westfield stage, here in Main Street Productions’ beautiful new home, where he is proud to serve as Treasurer as well as the Reservations/ Box Office fellow. He now joins “old” friends here on stage and is humbled to be a part of this marvelous cast and crew. Since he began acting in 2010 (three years into retirement) he has played such characters as Mark Twain (Big River, Footlite), Hysterium (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Mud Creek), and the post-epiphany Scrooge at Candlelight Theater and even won an Encore award for his major support as a romantic postman (Moon Over the Brewery, Hendricks County). He thanks his wife Carol for accommodating his acting schedule, and all of YOU for supporting community theater once again. Welcome to our theater and enjoy the show!
DOUG DAVIS (Director)
This Encore award winner celebrates his 55th year in community theatre. Here at Westfield Playhouse he has directed Lafferty's Wake, Over the River and Through the Woods, Don't Hug Me, Monkey Business, and Dixie Swim Club. At Clinton County Civic he has performed 30 comedic roles and directed 10 shows. At Red Barn Summer Theatre he has acted, been property manager, and set decorator. Doug has directed at Epilogue, Center Stage, Stageworthy and Hendricks. He recently got to act his dream role as Hercule Poirot in Agatha Christies Black Coffee at Center Stage in Lebanon. He is on the Westfield Board of Directors and is a two on the Encore board. Doug is a judge for Encore and musical co chairperson.

Favorite roles have included Mama Morton in Chicago, Grace in Grace and Glorie, Muriel in I’m Herbert, Eleanor in No Sex Please We’re British, and Mrs. Baker in Butterflies are Free. Thanks to Doug Davis and this awesome cast, and welcome to the new MSP home! Stay safe!
TERESA OTIS SKELTON (Producer)
Teresa has been involved in theatre since she was a student at Westfield High School, where she also began to be involved in community theatre. She has performed in Dracula, the Musical and South Pacific at the Belfry and Westfield Community Theatre, respectively, before finding MSP in 1992 while attending Butler University. She has been on the MSP stage in Talking With, Love Letters, Crimes of the Heart, Under Milkwood, Vanities, and Dial “M” for Murder. Additionally, she produced Our Town, an MSP Variety Show, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which won the 1998 Encore Award for Best Production. While serving as Worship Director for CrossRoads Church of Westfield, she wrote, acted in, and directed several vignettes. Retiring from the City of Westfield in 2013, she focused on community events and activities including her current position as a board member for the Downtown Westfield Association.
