We are excited to have Ms. Williams back at Triad Stage in the role of Berenice Sadie Brown in The Member of the Wedding along with 9-year-old Aidan Armstrong as John Henry West and New York based actress Erin Schmidt as Frankie Addams (pictured above; photo by VanderVeen Photographers). You might also remember Ms. Williams from other Triad Stage productions including Trouble in Mind, The America Play, A Christmas Carol (2010-2012), From the Mississippi Delta, and North Star. Or, you’re just as likely to have known her as your theatre teacher or minister!

Don’t miss seeing Ms. Williams in action at Triad Stage. The Member of the Wedding ends November 9, 2014.
