The fun-family fantasy’s youngest member of the cast is Megan Davis, a fifth-grade student from Hermon-DeKalb. She plays the King’s daughter.

“I love acting and singing, “she says. She has been involved with several shows and attended drama camp in Potsdam.

Michael Terrell plays the King and a leprechaun. “I work both ends of the acting spectrum. I have ears,” he says.

David Crowell, playing the storyteller, says “I like giving my voice a bit of an Irish accent,” he says. “It will be great when children come up to be a part of the show as I tell the stories.”

There will be a Celtic band, fiddlers and guitarists.

Jeannie Blake is working hard putting her dream on stage. “The Russell Opera House is a wonderful venue for the community,” she says.
