WPU Professor Amy White Co-Stars in Raleigh Little Theatre’s “One Man, Two Guvnors”
William Peace University’s Amy White takes the stage in Raleigh Little Theatre’s production of “One Man, Two Guvnor’s.” White, who is an Assistant Professor of Theatre and Musical Theatre at WPU, costars as Pauline in Richard Bean’s 1963 update of “The Servant of Two Masters.” White hints that Bean’s slapstick version of Carlo Goldini’s commedia dell’arte is sure to keep you in stitches, by bluntly describing her character as “the stupid person amongst a stage of fools.”
“Although I’d like to say she’s the comedic relief of this show, I think all the characters in the play take on that role.”
Amy White practices what she teaches at WPU and frequently performs in the area, such as her role in Raleigh Little Theatre’s 2016 production of “Stick Fly.” White is a great example of the type of professor who can be found at WPU – knowledgeable professionals who actively work within the fields they teach.
The show is a farce at its finest and revolves around the mishaps of a servant who works for two very different bosses, a wealthy nobleman and a mobster, all of which is guaranteed to entertain.
“I’m so pleased to be a part of ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’,“ White said. “It’s replete with near misses, silly wordplay, and slapstick physical comedy, all of which culminates in an uproariously funny evening of theatrical escapism.”
The show is two hours and 20 minutes of comedy and musical numbers that are sure to keep the laughs coming.
“Although I’d like to say she’s the comedic relief of this show, I think all the characters in the play take on that role,” White said, referencing her character, Pauline. “I think especially now we can all appreciate a good laugh.”
“One Man, Two Guvnors” plays at 8 p.m., Feb. 16-18, 23-25; and at 3 p.m., Feb. 12, 19, 26.
