Charlotte resident to appear in Woody Allen play

Charlotte resident David Harcourt will take the stage at Shelburne Town Center in Riverside Drive by Woody Allen, one of three one act plays featured this November in Shelburne players' fall production "3 One Act Comedies".

This comedic farce is about a once brilliant ad copywriter and now vagrant, played by David Harcourt as Fred, who stalks another writer, played by Peter Espenshade of Shelburne, he believes has stolen his ideas and life story for a screenplay.

The other one act comedies include Sure Thing by David Ives, featuring Aaron Kindsvatter and Jill Barr, about two strangers who get saved by a bell whenever either makes a conversational faux pas, giving them another chance to "ay it right, and "Caught in the Act" by Bruce Kane, where two lovers, played by Bill and Mindy Bickford, try to break free from a scene that keeps getting rewritten.

Harcourt has been in three previous Shelburne Players productions, appearing as Norval Hedges in "Born Yesterday", Inspector Goole in "An Inspector Calls", and Friar Francis in "Much Ado About Nothing". He has been involved in community theater on and off for 35 years.

Harcourt recently started serving as a member of the Shelburne Players board. He lives in Charlotte with his wife Jennifer, works as an I.T. manager, and is a singer, guitarist at St. Catherine of Sienna in Shelburne.

The evening promises to be a night of laughter as this trio of short plays showcase the works of some of the funniest and wittiest playwrights in contemporary theater. Performances will be held at Shelburne Town Center stage, 5420 Shelburne Rd. in Shelburne on Nov. 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and on Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. Further information is available at www.shelburneplayers.com.
