KIRBY-HILL HOUSE PRESENTS
“Murder at Rundown Abbey”
By Craig Sodaro
Amberly Warrick –
Amberly Warrick is another of our rookies to the House this season. She lives in Kountze and grew up all over the world, as a former military brat and now aspiring actress. She was home-schooled all her life. She is not only cool under pressure, but also humorous under pressure. Amberly is also serving as our stage-hand extraordinaire! Can you say "dramaturge"? We're very happy to have your enthusiasm on board, Amberly.
Back Stage -------
Basel Cassidy - Director
Kacey Sammons - Stage Manager
Kacey said, "I had my first exposure to theatre in High School and majored in theatre for a year in college. I got married, had my daughter. When she was 5, I went back to school and got my Paramedic certification and have worked in EMS for 30 years. I have the best job in the world and truly love what I do. I moved here almost 8 years ago to work for Acadian Ambulance. I love living in South East Texas and the Kirby Hill House is a big reason I stay here.
I have played off-stage for many seasons as your stage manager, tech gal, sometimes I have even been a co-director/ technical director. I have had the honor of hanging out with these talented people since the Fall of 2011 when, I took over lights and sound for The Altos under the direction of Holly Church. I haven’t missed a season since, just can’t imagine not being here."
Rose Hall - President of the Board of Directors and Assistant Director
Rose Hall wasn't born in Kountze but she got here as fast as she could. She raised five daughters here, who have presented her with 10 fine grandchildren. She has brought music to our ears, as our first lounge singer to perform between scenes Welcome. and as a star for our "Dinner and a Show" series. She is an amazing leader driven to excellence and brings all of us with her for the ride. She has been the heart and soul of the Kirby-Hill House, having served as the President of the Board of Directors for fourteen years, and has acted in two plays. She has been the lady of the house, the rescuer of those of us in need, our hero, our friend, our sister, our rock and our visionary.
