An Inkerman mother of two Pittston Area students has a supporting role in “Kiss Me Kate” at the Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre.
Wendy Prymus-Newell, by day a radiation oncology nurse at Geisinger, plays the wardrobe mistress in the Cole Porter classic. Newell is seen on stage frequently as a member of the ensemble, her strong soprano voice joining in the title song, as well as in “Too Darn Hot”.
Prymus-Newell is performing in her first show in 16 years. “I am back to my passion,” she said, “particularly the 1940s style dancing and singing.”
She said she continues to learn from everyone around her, particularly the trickier dance moves and how to hit the higher notes.
Wendy’s daughter Tyffany, 16, is assistant stage manager for the show.
“Kiss Me Kate” runs at 8 p.m. on May 16, 17 and 18, with a matinee at 3 p.m. May 18. For ticket information and reservations, call 570-823-1875.
