GVT’s New Voices Play Festival gives locals access to all the excitement theatre has to offer. Some actors have enjoyed their time onstage so much that they’ve returned for this year’s production. Chally Erb, a cast member in Playing Cards by Twilight’s Shine by Eric Fritzius, will appear for his second year in the New Voices Play Festival.
“I love performing at GVT because the theatre and the people are so nice and very professional. [I] enjoy working with both Larry and Travis and love the play Eric wrote. Seems to fit the times we are in now,” Erb said.
Erb has been a performer for many years, with training as a clown, experience dancing and choreographing, as well as set design and building. His long career has taken him all over the world. Erb doesn’t have any professional training in acting, but with his stage experience and the help of GVT’s Education Director Courtney Susman, he’s had fun learning the ropes.
“[I] love working with Courtney Susman, so easy and calm,” Erb said.
