ANNIE, GET YOUR WHIP: Noelle Kerr, Keiran King and Maylynne Walton Lowe in White Witch at the Fairfield Theatre, MoBay.
Say what you want about Annie Palmer, but the bitch sure knows how to make a comeback.
The Fairfield Theatre musical production White Witch, based on Jane Crichton's reimagining of the Annie Palmer saga, has secured the lion's share of nominations for the upcoming Actor Boy Awards, (15 in total) including bids for production of the year, directing, script, score, as well as acting noms for its stellar cast led by Thespian Spirit Award winners Maylynne Walton Lowe and Phillip Clarke - and Noelle Kerr and Keiran King.
White Witch, hailed by TALLAWAH in January as the best production of 2010, offers a compelling and rousingly entertaining take on the well-known story of Annie Palmer, the infamously wicked and mysterious yet widely misunderstood 'queen' of Rose Hall. Blending stirring music and daring drama with rich historical notes and a touch of romance, the production is an undeniable triumph, driven by an incredibly outstanding central performance from Walton.
This year's Actor Boy Awards ceremony takes place on Monday, March 28, at the Pantry Playhouse in New Kingston. Teisha Duncan and Maurice Bryan will host.
