A Christmas Cactus

Director: Annie Rosemond

Wednesday – Saturday 8 pm

Christmas is about to get interesting for Cactus O’Riley, a sassy private eye with the holiday blues. Christmas turns into a “Dickens” of a holiday for Cactus as she solves mysteries, delivers small miracles and takes a second chance on love and sleuthing. Comedy, mystery and romance converge in this charming contemporary Christmas tale where goodwill and justice triumph.

Director’s Bio

Annie Rosemond The Marco Players

Annie Rosemond enjoys all aspects of life behind the scenes of the theater, especially directing.  She is most proud of directing a production of Wit starring the very talented Janina Birtolo.  In addition to directing several plays with The Naples Players, Annie was cast in funny little parts like Queen Victoria in Annie Get Your Gun and Mother Burnside in Mame. She was most recently seen chasing Frankenstein’s monster across the stage with a pitchfork!  Annie is really looking forward to joining The Marco Players family.
