Anna Doyle and Evan Arbour — the next stage for these young thespians

Natasha Piirainen, Sun Journal staff | Sunday, August 5, 2012

“Ah, the theater. What a sophisticated form of entertainment . . . and we’re not talking about Flagship cinemas here. Leave your popcorn and icees at the concession stand and pick up a program for the summer shows taking place at Theater at Monmouth. In particular, keep an eye out for up-and-coming intern actors Anna Doyle and Evan Arbour, two young, talented, stage hopefuls who are willing to share the behind-the-scenes secrets of the stage — both the glamorous and not-so glamorous — as well as spill on what it’s like working with a few big-name drama producers (Shakespeare, anyone?).

A little bio told me you both grew up in Winthrop . . . any chance you two knew each other before working with Theater at Monmouth?

Anna: Evan and I have known each other since I moved to Winthrop in second grade — so over 10 years now! He’s one of my best friends, and it’s been so much fun working with him!

Evan: I was so excited when she told me she was working at TAM this summer too! We both went to school together and have been friends forever. We have been in multiple middle and high school productions together, so being here with Anna makes it so much fun.

If I told you I don’t like theater, how would you convince me otherwise?

Anna: Well obviously you have never seen a show at Theater at Monmouth! Honestly, I don’t think anyone who sees a show here could say they dislike theater.

Evan: Theater is so different from any other form of art because it gives insight into different walks of life. We are taken into a different world when the lights go up. We can forget about the light bill, insurance payments and doctor appointments as someone else on stage goes through their journey: There’s really nothing like it.”
