"Bitsy and Boots On The Move" Interview with Leann Haines

   Let's continue our interviews with the cast and crew of the comedy Bitsy and Boots On The Move, which takes the stage this weekend only in Huntington.

   Let's hear from the lovely and incredibly talented Leann Haines, who plays the part of Bridget, a fast talking, scatterbrained friend of the sisters, Bitsy and Boots.

Q: Who the heck are Bitsy and Boots? 

Leann: Two wacky broads for whom life is a mad-cap adventure!

Q: What is "On the Move" about? 

Leann: Bitsy and Boots sold their house to a mysterious stranger. What will this next chapter bring?

Q: What's the secret of the success of this series of plays? 

Leann: Jonathan Joy's clever writing and the people who bring it to life. And, the food. It's dinner theatre!

Q: People who attend this show are also helping out a great cause - tell us about it. 

Leann: It's all about missions. Giving locally and to other worthy causes. Over $52,000 in 20-some years. Amazing, and totally worth spending an evening laughing your face off!

Q: What's your background in theatre?

Leann: I've been very fortunate to sneak into several productions. Sometimes I get to put glow tape on things. Sometimes I get to sing.

Q: Why would you recommend this show?

Leann: Where else can you see a Dark Crystal lunchbox up close? Great fun, great food, helping our community. Join us!

   Thanks, Leann!
