A mystery

Directed by Brian Remo
Produced by Jessica Foerst


This chilling mystery thriller by the author of Rosemary's Baby explores the thin line between fantasy and reality, madness and murder. Students Susan and Larry find themselves as guests enticed to the Brabissant mansion by its dissolute caretakers the lonely Mackeys.Struck by Susan's strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long- dead daughter of the family for whom they work, the older couple gradually induce her to impersonate Veronica briefly to solace the only living Brabissant, her addled sister who believes Veronica alive. Once dressed in Veronica's clothes, Susan finds herself locked in the role and locked in Veronica's room. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan?

Brian has also successfully directed several productions here at WCP, including Rehearsal for Murder, which was nominated for 10 Perry Awards (including Best Direction) and last season's, A Streetcar Named Desire

Mr. Remo's theatrical experience has led him to establishing Fearless Productions in Rahway, NJ working out of the UCPAC center and producing such productions as Sex, Relationships and Sometimes…Love which also played at the Producer's Club and The Jerry Orback Theater in NYC, To Kill A Mockingbird, Bachelorette, The Scene, Legends and Bridge, Seussified, and most recently, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change.

Brian is a proud member and founder of Fearless Productions. He wishes to thank the cast and crew and the BOD of WCP, Jessica for being beyond a friend and confidante, his stage parents: Coach and Jo, and dedicates this and every production to Kristin, who is the life in his love as well as the love of his life. Enjoy the show.

She has also appeared as Polly in The Boyfriend, Anna in New Girl in Town; Eleanor in Second Time Around (for Regal Productions), and Peggy in Front Page. Besides doing props, she has worked on Scenery and Set Design. Her favorite role was Eleanor in Second Time Around because it gave her the chance to play her husband, Steve's, snobbish and self-centered wife.

JoAnne is a retired teacher of music from the Clark School system where she was the vocal, instrumental and music theory teacher for over twenty years and for which she directed and musical directed the plays for Kumpf School.

(Webmaster) Besides directing for WCP, Steve also is the President of WCP and is the webmaster for our web site.

(Box Office) Renate has been Director of Tickets since the 08-09 season and enjoys making sure the front of the house runs smoothly. Participating in the chorus of Mikado and Pirates of Penzance with the Gilbert & Sullivan Players of Philadelphia many years ago makes her appreciate the hard work that goes into a production and confirmed her belief that she doesn't want to be on stage. Renate is a substitute teacher in the Westfield School District, a board member of Westfield Hadassah, a member of the Harvest Quilters of Central New Jersey and enjoys spending time with her family and reading.

(Costumes) I’m thrilled with the opportunity to work on this production. My personal goal is to make sure that the actors are comfortable and confident in their appearance on stage. I started working on costumes at the Westfield Community Theater in 2009 with their production of Little Mary Sunshine. At this point I fell in love with costuming. I was asked back to the theater and subsequently invited as the Chairperson of Costumes. I have great respect for the Director and his visions; they inspire me. I thank the production team for their faith in my ideas and their respect for my opinion. And especially my daughter for all the late hours, help and support.

Past credits: Little Mary Sunshine, Don’t Drink the Water, The Second Time Around, Dial M for Murder, Caught In The Net, Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Abie’s Irish Rose, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, Top Girls, Stuart Little, Bizet’s Carmen, Squabbles, {proof}, Olympus on My Mind, A Thousand Clowns, Hot L Baltimore, Almost, Maine, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike and Tribute.

"I am a Costumer, I make clothes for imaginary people." ---Celestine Ranney, 1982

Not only has he handled the backstage responsibilities but has event performed on stage in Death of a Salesman and A View from the Bridge.
