Chapel Street Actor wins National Competition
DEartsinfo congratulates Chapel Street Players and Patrick Cathcart.
Patrick Cathcart won the top prize for lead actor in the American Association of Community Theatre competition. Cathcart played Edward Albee's crazy character, Jerry, who both horrifies and
fascinates Peter, the quiet businessman played by Brian Turner.
The one-act was directed by Andrew Mitchell for Chapel Street Players and won the Delaware State competition and then the Eastern States Theatre Association festival before taking the show to the national level.
This was Delaware's first national theatre prize!
