See How They Run
by Philip King
So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib tickling the plot that this London hit left audiences exhausted from laughter.
Mayhem ensues with the galloping in and out of the doors of an English vicarage by an American actor and actress, a self-assured cockney maid, the village busybody, four men in clergyman suits, an escaped prisoner and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on.
Directed by John Green

Who's Who (alphabetically)
ARLENE DALTON (Sgt. Towers) Arlene Dalton has been with the Camp Rose Players since the early 1990s, first appearing with husband Ken Dalton in LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS. Her roles are too numerous to count, but favorites include Hank Dwarf in the British Pantomime SHOW WHITE GOES WEST and most recently, Mamita in GIGI. Arlene is an accomplished singer, pianist, an avid golfer and world traveler with her husband, Ken.
KEN DALTON (Arthur Humphrey) When he's not on stage at Camp Rose, Ken is a golf enthusiast, world traveller, skilled singer and published author of five novels. Ken's acting resume inclues everything from a mailroom clerk to Scottish detective, to singing gambler and most recently the ever suave Honore Lachailles in GIGI and an otherworldly messenger in HEAVEN CAN WAIT. Learn more about Ken at www.kendalton.com.
ANNETTE EVERS (Ida, costumes) began performing in Camp Rose productions in 1999. Performing brings great personal growth and community into Annette's life. Her favorite "straight humorous" character parts allow the audience to laugh at the "human condition". A few of the most memorable characters include: the "cook" in "Small Hotel", the "maid" in "Enchanted April", the "best friend" in "Miranda", the "evil wicked witch" in "Snow White Goes West", the shy un-experienced "assistant" who becomes experienced in "Mame", "Mother" in it "Runs in the Family". Characters in more serious plays include "Alice" in "Lion in Winter", the "monk" in "Lost Horizon", "Mrs. Smith" in the bittersweet "Meet Me In St Louis". Annette also creates costumes for many of the plays - supporting actors in bringing characters to life on the stage. When not on stage, Annette is a personal finance consultant, jewelry and fabric art designer, and loves being "Mother" to her "Beasties". MEOW!
BILL GARNER (Lionel Toop) Jane Moore offered me my first Camp Rose part in 1994. After that, Jane gave me the honor of playing Prof. Harold Hill, Nathan Detroit, Emile de Becque, and, as they say, "many more." Dear Jane was the greatest theater "life force" and director I have ever worked with. Over the years I've acted in several Sonoma County venues. None was as fun nor as challenging as strutting the "limited" Camp Rose boards. It's great to be back with my Camp Rose family--on both sides of the lights.
JOHN GREEN (Director) has been active in the Sonoma County Theater community for 37 years as an actor, director and producer. He has been involved in over 80 productions, and has appeared as an actor in over 50 at Camp Rose dating back to “See How They Run” in 1979. "See How They Run" was one of the funniest shows ever done at Camp Rose. Now, 37 years later, he's stepped in as director for that very same show. He has avoided playing the leading role in all but two and is best known for making small and supporting parts memorable and making the other actors look good.
COLIN GRILL (Intruder) returns to the Camp Rose stage after a brief hiatus from roles in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum", "Brigadoon", and "Fiddler on the Roof." Colin also manages the local Aaction Rents and likes to go river rafting.
PETER IMMORDINO (Clive) is a 30 year veteran of Sonoma county theater. He has appeared in many Camp Rose shows, with favorite roles in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum", "Little Mary Sunshine" and "Hello Dolly!" He returns to the stage with director John Green after a four year hiatus. Peter is recently retired from ceramic engineering and makes his home in Healdsburg.
KATE MINTUN (Penelope Toop) Kate has been a member of the Camp Rose Players for over 10 years, and has loved every minute of it. Some highlights include playing Philia in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum", Margot in "Dial 'M' For Murder", and Gigi in "Gigi". She holds a degree in theatre from UC Davis. The Players are one big happy family and Kate says she's delighted to be a part of any production!
ERIKA SPEARS (Lighting, Sound, Stage Manager) Born and bred in Sonoma County, Erika is thrilled to have recently joined the Camp Rose Players. Being involved in numerous theatrical productions as a child (including Winnie the Pooh and The Little Prince), and an avid audience member as an adult, Erika fell in love with Camp Rose’s unique atmosphere during a production of "Gigi". She was able to join the crew with their next performance, “I’ll Get My Man” as the interim stage manager. Several years and productions later, she's still here. When she is not attending rehearsals or performances, Erika is a new mother, an amateur photographer, and a passionate cook.
JENNIFER TREMONT (Crew) has been with The Camp Rose Players since it's inception in 1976 when she appeared as “Billy the Cabin Boy” in Josepha and Captain Fitch, our very first show. She's worked on stage and behind the scenes. Her favorite role was the Prostitute in No Sex Please Were British. She looks forward to working with her sister, resident director, Suzanne Webb for many years to come. Jennifer is also a freelance hair stylist in TV and feature films, the most recent being THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE HUNGER GAMES sequel.
KAREN WALLACE (Miss Skillon). Karen grew up in a musical family in Toronto. Her father was a violinist and her grandfather a bandleader for the Czar’s army in Russia. As a member of the Camp Rose Players and the Raven Players, she has performed in many plays, comedies, and musicals, including the roles of Kathy Seldon in "Singing in the Rain", Little Mary in "Little Mary Sunshine", Betty Johnson in "Funny Money", Ada Hogg in "She’s Done It Again" and one of the Cuckoo Pigeon Sisters in "The Odd Couple". She’s taken great pleasure in assisting her partner John Faulkner producing and acting in the sometimes annual Redwood Empire Summer Follies as well as being assistant director for "A Few Good Men".
DARRYL WEBB (Set Construction and Sound Effects), who has been in numerous Camp Rose productions since 1983. Outside of the theatre, Darryl works as a recording engineer, video editor and film music composer (www.langewebbmusic.com).
LESLI ACKERMANN WEBB (Artwork, Set Construction) has created artwork for several Camp Rose shows including "South Pacific". A local musician, she has played in various bands and with the orchestra for SRT's "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas", "A Chorus Line", and "Barnum". Lesli is also an avid movie afficianado and conducts paranormal investigations.
SUZANNE WEBB (Producer, Set Design/Construction, Program and PR) has directed and produced six shows, following in her mother Jane Moore's footsteps. Her training includes many years as resident stage manager at Camp Rose. Sue loves the creative process, working with this special ensemble of actors and crew, and the spirit of what true community theater embodies.
WARREN WESTON (Bishop of Lax) There is no part too large or small for Warren Weston who has been in each and every production since he first set foot on the Camp Rose stage. From playing Professor Henry Higgins in "My Fair Lady" to King Henry II in "The Lion in Winter" (and just about everything in between) Warren has made the most of his character portrayals and has a loyal following as part of the Camp Rose family.
