jan boutilier Jan BoutilierIf you or your child spent a lot of time in the office in high school, you probably know Jan. She has been an important part of Dinner and a Murder since its inception, and has been in the show every year. She is also a regular in shows put on by the O’Meara Dance Studio. Jan claims that she used to be shy, but we don’t believe her.
Marie Farmer – This is Marie’s third time on stage with us. She is a regular in the O’Meara Dance Studios shows. She comes from a long line of entertainers. At the 2012 PT Fantabulous Follies, 4 generations of Caldwells shared the stage in a memorable tap dance number.  She is also a newlywed!  Congratulations to Marie, Alan and family!
  David Crozier – Any thought that David might only be on stage because his wife is forcing him to do it will vanish as soon as he begins to speak. David has been with us from the beginning. He helped write a couple of our scripts, so he gets part of the blame for these messes.  He is an active member of Kiwanis and is the sparkplug that brought Dinner & a Murder under the Kiwanis sponsorship.  He is also the Chair for the annual Kiwanis Classic Car Show in August, as well as being instrumental in starting and chairing an annual Haunted House by Kiwanis.  If it wasn’t for David, I still wouldn’t know what a shillelagh was.
  Mary Crozier – Mary has been crucial to the show from the very beginning. I’ve never seen anyone pull a costume together as quickly and thoroughly as she does.  Mary also spent many years performing with the O’Meara Dance Studio, where she came up with 7 or 8 costumes instead of just the one a year we ask for.  (She’s thinking of opening up a Costume Store in her basement.)  Mary is also an active member of Kiwanis.  Besides being Co-chair with David for the annual Classic Car Show and this Dinner & a Murder, she will also take over the reins of “Stars of Tomorrow” in 2016!  When does she sleep?
  Jim Guthrie – Jim wins the award for longest commute to the show: 840 miles (each way). He figures that since he is here he will build and install the set pieces for the show, with a little help from his friends. For most of the show’s history, Jim has been voicing some of Ramon’s inappropriate lines, and loving it. Jim is happy to contribute to a good cause and enjoys being part of a talented group of thespians. Thank you all for attending tonight’s performance and supporting local theater. Keep up the good work.

Micah Harding – Micah was born and raised in the small town (Pop 639) of Ririe, Idaho, which is just south of Yellowstone National Park.  After completing high school, he moved to Seattle and attended North Seattle Community College.  After finishing an Associate’s Degree, he married his wife, Tess, and moved to Bainbridge Island.  He ran his own computer repair business on the Island for over 10 years until moving to Port Townsend in February of 2014.  He enjoys cooking, baking naturally leavened bread, making amazing cocktails, and teaching Afro/Haitian hand drumming.  This is his first year in Dinner & a Murder!  Welcome Micah!
  Zach NeSmith – Zach is an actor of some renown in Port Townsend. He was a regular with the Key City Public Theatre for many years and we’re very fortunate to have him as our “professional” member of the cast.  In 2010, he jumped in at nearly the last minute when Jason was unable to do the show due to work commitments, and he didn’t miss a line.  In 2013, the poor guy had to play one of the most wretched parts in all of theater – he played Ramon.
  Peggy Tonan – If there’s anyone on our stage who loves an audience more than me, it’s Peggy. They love her in return. She joined us the second year and, never one to waste time, Peggy was guilty of murder that year. Who knows? Maybe she’ll strike again…
