CPP opens 'Pygmalion' on Friday night

A father and son are among the cast of Central Park Players' production of "Pygmalion' at the Grand Haven Community Center, which opens Friday. Ian Lawton, executive minister of C3 Exchange in Spring Lake, will join his son, Hugo. Director Sarah Fields had a "bystander' role available and offered it Lawton. He agreed to join the cast when Hugo stepped in to fill the role of Freddy Eynsford-Hill.

“I’ve never been in a play before, except for playing the role of Jesus when I was a child,” Ian Lawton said. “I could speak about spirituality to a million people without breaking a sweat, but performing in a play fills me with fear.”

Hugo, on the other hand, is no stranger to the stage. The Grand Haven High School student has performed in many school productions.

The cast also includes Barry Huntington, Justin Sternburgh, Ann Genson, Gretchen Fields, Riley Remington, Marva Netherland, Michelle Renna and Bridget McCarthy.

“Pygmalion” will be performed at the Grand Haven Community Center this Friday and Saturday. Visit www.centralparkplayers.org for more show information.
