Award-winning filmmaker Fritz, of Newfane, has turned his attention to the RRP stage. “I Used To Have a Cat” features only two actors, Sara Vitale and Natalie Neilson, who play sisters with contrasting lifestyles and temperaments who live together.
Vitale is a founding member of the Rock River Players and currently serves as secretary of its board of directors. Having studied acting and directing in college, she continues to pursue both in various community theater groups.
Neilson grew up in San Francisco doing theater. She has starred as the leads in three Robert Fritz films: “TWICE..., Past Tense,” and “Chasing Rainbows.” She has won several awards for her acting including an Award of Excellence from the Accolade Competition, an Award of Excellence from the Indie Fest, and a Gold Award from the International Independent Film Festival. Neilson lives and works in New Hampshire.
“I Used to Have a Cat” is the opening play in the Rock River Players 2017-2018 season. It will be followed by the annual cabaret in February. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. For information contact producer Annie Landenberger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
