The many performances of this year's Ghosts of Sotterley - “Reapers in Red Coats 1814” wow-ed crowds on October 17, 18, 23, 24, and 25, 2014! Our sincere thanks to ALL who made this event one which audiences will remember and talk about for a long time to come! There are so many people who volunteer their time and talents to benefit Historic Sotterley Plantation and we are grateful to every single one of you!
The Boeing Company
Ming and Dawna Diaz
The Mathe Family
Dawna has been actively involved in all aspects of the Ghosts of Sotterley for the past 13 years. She returned as Director and Producer for this year's production. When not directing or performing on a stage, she is a Life Coach. She also has a day job on base at Atlantic Test Range.
Ming has been acting and doing tech since the 60's in middle school and there is no cure in sight. His constant enjoyment is working for people who want to play in their performances while giving audiences their best. His alter ego is being a clown and face-painter for children.
Stacy Oosterink is a veteran of SOMD theater, most recently directing "Little Shop of Horrors" for the Newtowne Players. This is her Sotterley debut. She'd like to thank Dawna, Ming, Sotterley Plantation, and her family for their trust, support, and giving her another opportunity to play with her friends.
Playwright & Director
Paul Rose is very excited about this experimental move from years of acting in the Sotterley Ghost Tours, to a chance to write and direct. Paul would like to point out that the choice to cast his daughter, Madeline, has no nepotism about it. He needed to cast a pretty, talented 12 year old girl who owned two Yorkie puppies and she was a fit!
This is Wesley's sixth year with the Ghosts of Sotterley. He has brought skills learned in the Navy and loves to play with all things technical. His day job is a test flight electronic/electrician on trainer jets and is always looking forward to the next year’s Ghosts of Sotterley.
Krista Whites is thrilled to be once again working with Historic Sotterley Plantation. She was graduated from West Virginia University in 2012 with a B.F.A. in Theatre concentrating in Theatrical Production and Design. Previous productions include Ragtime, Buried Child, and Blue Man Group. Krista sends her thanks to Dawna for this opportunity, and to her family and Christine for the back-up.
