Cast Spotlight: Cory McLean

We are so blessed to have Cory McLean cast in the role of Lysander. He was born in the Southern Tier but lived in Detroit during his teens. He tells us he has only recently become involved with the theater but we never would have guessed! He’s performed as Willum Cubbert in The Nerd and in various interactive dinner shows. Cory is a versatile and creative actor who truly embodies his character, rarely breaking out of character during rehearsals. He also has a fantastic sense of humor. When reading for a female cast member who had to miss a rehearsal, he did so in falsetto, to the great surprise and amusement of us all. Later he ramped up the camp by donning a yellow yarn wig. Cory remarks in his playbill bio that he “is excited for the opportunity to perform Shakespeare on stage for the first time”, but it seems to us he’s been doing it his whole life! He is very talented and keeps adding new dimensions to his portrayal of Lysander.

Penny is thrilled to reprise the role of Puck and feels she is having more fun with it now than when she last played Puck at ECC in the early 90’s!

Some of her previous performances include: TALES OF THE DRIVEN, JOSEPH & THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAM COAT, MOUSETRAP, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, STEEL MAGNOLIAS, as well as many others. By day, she is the mother of two magnificent young boys. By night, she is thankful to be sharing her passions with the unending support and love of Bill Baldwin.

Patty has been a proud member of ITOWNY since May 2019. Starting as Barbara in Night of the Living Dead in 2015, theater became a vital part of Patricia’s creative expression. Playing a British cook (And Then There Were None) to a nine character role in The Dining Room, and even a gig in a musical Guys and Dolls! It has been a fun 5 years since that first role, and now the privilege of being a part of this talented team, while learning to perform Shakespeare can now be checked off her list. Thanks and appreciation also goes to my fiance Chris, who has patiently been at my side for all rehearsals and performances. Thank you ITOWNY!!!
