Dreyfus is out to get Clouseau, the man whose undeserved success has driven him crazy, and he threatens to vaporize continents if the nations of the world don’t deliver Clouseau to him alive or, if at all possible, dead! Comedian Rich Lee along with the rest of the cast are sure to work your laughing muscles.

“What I like about acting is stepping out of the box of yourself,” says Radnor Middle School 7th grader Jillian Gorman, who is playing the role of Younger Molly in Neil Simon’s Jake’s Women at Colonial Playhouse in Aldan, PA. “It’s enjoyable to make new people.”

This is only Jillian’s second time on the stage as an actor. In March of 2012 she played “Old Widow Whiskers” in Pied Piper: The Musical at MN/Spotlight Theater in Swarthmore, PA. She is already getting the hang of the dramatic arts and has impressed her fellow actors with her natural stage presence. “When Jillian first came out to read for us, the entire cast was truly wowed,” noted director Kathy Quinn of Clifton Heights. Jillian’s talents are not limited to acting. She plays French horn in the middle school band and is a member of the school’s chorus. She has taken both Irish dancing and gymnastics and is an avid softball and Lacrosse player. Jillian is a student in the school’s integrated study program, “Watershed”, and enjoys the experience of thematic learning. She particularly likes painting and writing short stories.
The play is one of Neil Simon’s wittiest looks at marriage, relationships, and the internal life of the artist. Jillian plays the younger version of the title character’s adult daughter, who visits him in his memory. She is featured in several poignant scenes with the show’s lead actor, Paul Kerrigan of Secane, PA, a Language Arts teacher at Springfield High School. “This is my first play with adults, so I am getting the chance to learn a lot from them,” Jillian says.
You can see Jillian perform in Jake’s Women Feb. 1-16. Click here for details.
