Episode 7, Part 1: Chat with Rob Roznowski, Mark Schenfisch, and Andrea Wollenberg
Back in 2017, the Williamston Theatre produced a great show called Murder for Two with Book and Music by Joe Kinosian, and Book and Lyrics by Kellen Blair. It continues to be the Theatre’s most successful production in our 17-year history. We’ve always wanted to bring the show back, and when we learned there was a Holiday version of the show we secured the rights to make it our holiday production for the 2023-2024 season. And we have been lucky enough to secure both cast members and most of the creative team from that production. In this special two-part episode, Emily Sutton-Smith chats with Director Rob Roznowski and actors Andrea Wollenberg and Mark Schenfisch about the upcoming production.
