Allison Baron

 (Zelle & Dopey) Allison Baron is excited to be a part of Law & Order: FTU, as she watches far too much L&O in her free time! This is her first show with DCP and wants to thank Mr. W for the opportunity. Most recently, Allison was in the ensemble for Big Fish at Methacton Community Theater. MCT is normally where Allison can be

found on stage or creating costumes. Thank you to her sister for helping her stay busy and creative.

Elda Kulp

(not pictured)

(Officer Gold, Judge Godmother & Chu-Chunk, Time, Location) While researching the part of Officer Gold, I found she had an unfortunate incident of breaking and entering regarding Three Bears. She fled her life of crime and turned to Criminal Justice becoming a Top Detective in the Fairy Tale Unit. I am hoping to make her proud of my portrayal. Not too Hot, not too cold, but just right! Continuing my research, Judge Fairy Godmother is a magically-gifted woman. She performed her magical forces across many Fairy Tale kingdoms stepping in to make sure that the tale in question runs its course with making sure that the endings were perfect as she disappears in a cloud of glitter and hearts. She is often unseen. She turned to the Court System of the Fairy Tale Unit to make sure that justice prevails in FTU and to give a Face to Fairy Godmothers everywhere. I hope I can portray her with Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! And there really wasn't any special training for C.L.T. - you'll see.

Special thanks to my hubs, Steve, son, Mike for supporting my craziness. Thanks to Dan and the cast and crew of FTU for the opportunity. Jane, I did it! Kalie, Kim, Deb - you have no idea how much you have done for me. Enjoy the show!!!

Chris McBreen

(Chu-Chunk, Time, Location, Peep & Pinocchio) Christopher Bryan McBreen has been performing on stage for 10 years this summer. In that time, he’s played a murderous spectre, a purple Buffalo and a Mathemagician. He’s gotten married on stage, become enamored with himself, and learned to agree to disagree. He’s acted, directed, stage managed and pushed the magic button to bring the lights up and down. This is his 4th show this year and he’s glad to be coming back to his true love, family theatre and fulfill EVERY actors dream of being a defense attorney on Law & Order.

Thank you everyone for 10 years of laughs, cheers and love and here’s to many many more.
