THE PLEDGE at Brelby is "Everything a Show Should Be"
By: Brelby Theatre Company
Beneze described his The Pledge character, Andrew, as "a bit of a skeevy drifter who is always trying to impress the ladies by doing the completely wrong things. This show is about losing control of your life and trying to get it back, but nothing is as you thought," he continued.
"My favorite part of The Pledge," he said, "has definitely been working on the magic tricks in the show. Clayton is already a talented amateur magician and watching him work is captivating. This show will make you start to question everything you know. It's a thrill ride with several twists and turns. You'll enjoy it, trust me," said Beneze.
Katelyn Landaal, plays the reporter in The Pledge.
"This is my first time performing theater on stage," Landaal said. "However, I've always been drawn to performing,"
Landaal described her The Pledge character as "charismatic and caring. To me," she continued, "this show is about perception verses reality. That's really what magic is about, after all. It really explores that through the interactions of the characters and the actual magic that goes on stage."
In terms of the production, Landaal said, "The cast is really fun. There is so much talent in the show. I love seeing the range the cast has. I'm also obsessed with the magic. I've gotten to learn how some of the tricks work, but others I'm still mystified about. The Pledge is everything a show should be. There's a wide range of emotions, the writing is spectacular, even down to the stage directions. The actors are so amazing. I've been excited to work with this cast since the beginning. And, as an added bonus, there's magic!"
The Pledge by Megan O'Connor is directed by Brian Maticic and plays June 16-17, 23-24, 30, July 1 at 7:30pm and June 18, 25 at 2pm.
