The Actors

Beth Whitehead (J) is pleased for the opportunity to, once again, act with husband David Whitehead.  She most recently performed as Barbara Fordham in PPF’s production of August: Osage County.  Other PPF roles include Mame Dennis in Auntie Mame (WATCH nomination), Charlotte Hay in Moon Over Buffalo, and Romaine Vole in Witness for the Prosecution (WATCH nomination).  Beth has extensive directing credits, including the PPF production of To Kill a Mockingbird (WATCH nominated for directing).  Beth directed All My Sons which received the Ruby Griffith Award for Overall Excellence.

David Whitehead (Terry) is so happy to be working with his beautiful wife, as his wife, in this production of The Parking Lot.  David is a veteran member of PPF, having played many roles including, most recently as Roy in last year’s “theater under the stars” (behind the Italian Café) production of Lone Star.  He also performed as Frank in Mere Mortals, Walter Burns in Front Page and Antonio Salieri in Amadeus, which earned him a WATCH nomination for outstanding lead actor in a play.

Wynter Chatman (Ring Girl) Last seen in the title role for PPF’s pop-up production of The Librarian, Wynter has been a member of PPF since 2015. She helped as a dresser for The Glass Mendacity and worked on several productions since then both on-stage and off. She previously appeared as Bunny in California Suite and Mrs. Clausington in Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Thank you to my family, friends, and my PPF family- I appreciate your continued support in everything I do.
