Pentucket Players stage ‘Sunset Boulevard’
This weekend, the Pentucket Players will begin their presentation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical “Sunset Boulevard” at the Rogers Center for the Arts at Merrimack College in North Andover.
The show, based on a 1950 movie of the same title, focuses on Norma Desmond, a silent movie star desperate to make a return to the screen. Fate brings an unknown screenwriter, Joe Gillis, into her life. They begin to rely on each other for much more than the rewriting of her screenplay. “Sunset Boulevard’’ features North Andover’s April Foley in the role of Norma Desmond and North Shore native Will Rousmaniere as Joe Gillis. Appearing in ensemble and supporting roles are Dale Cripe and Amy McCorkle of North Andover; Michael Levy and Jon Brody of Andover; Kerry Molloy, Meghan Lawton, and Marisa Potts of Methuen; and Egan Davis, Tracey Dorr, Janet Hickey, Holly McGrath, Jessica Woodard, and Beth Tilden, all of Haverhill.
