MY FAIR LADY featured Joel Thomas as Henry Higgins, Christina Gillespie as Eliza, and Dennis Drew as Doolittle. David Canary made his initial appearance at Hampton this season as Freddie ... then went on to featured roles in several other shows ... David later went on to star in TV's BONANZA for several seasons and can currently be seen in the popular soap opera ALL MY CHILDREN.
NIGHT OF THE IGUANA was a very powerful show starring Joel Thomas & Katherine Helmond and introducing beautiful Marie Wallace to Hampton audiences. The set by Steven Nihda was a work of art. Company members this season included Jimmy Whittle, Peter Bailey, Phil Clark, David Christian, Barrie O'Brien, Mike Ferraro, Don Fendley, George Pesaturo, Ed Witherell, Anita Cigna, Kay Vance, Nancy La Peter, Lee Pearce, Joel O'Brien, Maddy Meredith. Lee Pearce has done countless TV commercials and may be well remembered for her stint in the wildly funny AIRPORT, as the young lady who got slapped repeatedly by various passengers.
Musicians this year were Arnold Gross on piano and Don O'Brien on drums.
