Congratulations to Kathy Slack’s voice student Truman Bubblo of North Yarmouth for earning the lead role in The Portland Players upcoming production of “A Christmas Story.” Truman will play Ralphie Parker, the boy who dreams of getting a Red Ryder air rifle for Christmas. The show is being directed by 317 Main alum, Janie Downey Maxwell.
Kathy has been working with Truman for the last year and a half and they share a love of musical theater.
“She’s pretty loud and energetic,” said Truman. “We fit well together.” Kathy says her emphasis with Truman and other young vocalists is making sure they learn proper vocal techniques to prevent injury to the vocal chords.
The lead roles are being double cast. Bubblo will be on stage, 12/1, 12/9 and 12/15 at 7:30pm and 12/3, and 12/17 at 2;30pm.
