Boise Little Theater is continuing a season of fun with the comedy LIE, CHEAT, AND GENUFLECT by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore. It was a good show with a good script.

Two brothers, Thomas T. Buckle (played by Brad Ooley) and Billy Buckle (played by Shaun Vincent) are convinced they were left out of their millionaire uncle's will. Thomas is the brains and Billy is the brawn. The show is about their exploits to try to get their hands on the money.

The show is filled with lots of sight gags and one-liners. The audience loved every bit of it and ate it up. There was much giggling, laughing and quite a few guffaws. They were lively and were enjoying themselves.

It looked like the cast had a lot of fun during rehearsals and their performances showed how much they enjoyed working as an ensemble. We could see in the occasional look that they must have many inside jokes, and that came across in how much fun they seemed to be having on the set.

Teresa Rodrick My name is Teresa Rodrick, I was born in Edmonds, Washington - grew up in Mountlake Terrace (WA), married a man from Everett (WA) and my folks moved to Lake Stevens (WA). So when asked, I say I am from the Seattle Area. Way back when I was in high school, I was given lines to perform to open a play (I was a choir girl) and I still remember a part of the line: “No one stopped to give him gladsome looks.” I was then in two other plays. From there I married my husband in June 1990. He was military and we moved around a bit. Our children were born during this time. We lived in England for 2 years, Germany for 6 years and moved to San Antonio, Texas. In San Antonio, I decided I had put my own career off long enough and started going to Palo Alto Community College. I got my Associates Degree in Drama in May 2005. From San Antonio, we moved back to England for just over 3 years. I did one stint in community theatre there. From there we moved to Boise, Idaho. I received my Bachelors in Arts in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Secondary Education in May 2012 from Boise State University.
