Pam is a familiar face on the stage. She has been active with the Upstage Players since their formation in 2004. In fact, she has been the secretary since the Upstage Arts Board was created. That is dedication!

Pam plays Aurora Grenache in Wine, Cheese and Murder. Aurora owns the vineyard Crestfallen next door. The Boudreauxs and Aurora have feuded for years. Could it have led to something sinister?

Jay was a late addition to the cast as one of the cast members had to back out of their role due to a work conflict. Jay graciously stepped in and we are happy he did! Jay has performed in several Upstage musicals. His most famous was his portrayal of the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz, but this is his first dinner theatre production.

Jay has been a member of the Upsala Fire Department for 20 years. He has driven truck for 27 years, but he says, "being around people and laughing are what I enjoy most."

Wine, Cheese, and Murder is Greg's fourth Upstage production, but first dinner theatre. He does an incredible job of playing the role of over-the-top Dr. Hans Zupp. Just hearing him say "no" will make you laugh.
Greg served ten years in the US Air Force. We thank him for his service. He is currently a math and science teacher at the Little Falls middle school. The Upstage Players are happy he chooses acting as his hobby!
