Darla, Darling of the Stage

Posted on Updated on

Darla, darling of stage
by Bob Bridge (Times-Mail, Bedford)

Rachel Fishback, director of Little Theatre of Bedford‘s upcoming production of “The Miracle Worker,” is billing one of her cast members as an individual who has “risen from Death Row to center stage.”
Powerful stuff, huh?
When Rachel speaks, I listen. Viewing her as the Wicked Witch of the West in a performance of “The Wizard of Oz” left me both inspired and … embarrassingly intimidated.
 
Rachel is excited about “The Miracle Worker” for a number of reasons. Her daughter, Katie, is portraying Helen Keller while Wendy Miller is playing Annie Sullivan.
But the thespian meriting the most thunderous acclaim thus far is Darla Miller, Wendy’s rescued pit bull. Darla portrays Helen’s dog, Belle.
Rachel seriously contemplated omitting Belle’s brief scene from the production.
“Working with animals can be very difficult and adds an element of stress for this first-time director,” she explained. “But after meeting Darla at Wendy’s home, I decided to cast her as Helen’s dog.”
She was drawn to Darla’s demeanor.
“She was so gentle and calm with a house full of strangers, which included several small children,” Rachel recalled. “Wendy was confident Darla was up for the part and the audience.”
Thus, a star was born.
Wendy rescued Darla in 2013.
“She was discovered tied up behind a house in southern Indiana,” Wendy explained. “Her owners had left, and she had been abandoned.”
The dog was in dire shape. She was missing fur and had developed a skin condition.
Darla was taken to a shelter and was placed on the list of animals to be euthanized.
“She was put on this list not because of anything she did, but because of how she looked,” Wendy explained. “She was a large pit bull with a huge head and a skin condition. She was also dark brown, and dark brown and black dogs are less likely to be adopted. She was not likely to catch the eye of a prospective adopter, and space needed to be made for other dogs.”
However, Davida Miller, a staff member at the shelter and an active participant in a rescue group, took an interest in the pit bull. She fed her high quality chow that effectively cleared her coat. Davida worked tirelessly to make certain Darla would not be destroyed.
 
Wendy and her husband Tim adopted Darla and Wendy now serves as a board member with Fat Heads Rescue. She partners with Davida to save other pit bulls.
Wendy claims Darla is cherishing her moment in the spotlight.
“She loves coming to the theatre, mostly because of all the attention she gets,” Wendy explained. “She’s not nervous at all on stage, and she flawlessly portrays the character of a loving dog. After all, that’s all pit bulls are — dogs.”
To learn more about Fat Heads Rescue, you can visit www.fatheads.org, or check out the organization on Facebook.


“The Miracle Worker” is slated for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m. The final show is Oct. 9 with the curtain rising at 2 p.m. You can purchase tickets by calling (812) 279-3009 or via the web at www.ltb.org.
It’s customary to bestow leading ladies with floral bouquets following the final performance. In this particular case, Snausages and Beggin Strips probably will be preferable.
Savor the spotlight, Darla. Fame is fleeting.

Auditions Announced for “The Curious Savage”

Posted on Updated on

Little Theatre of Bedford is pleased to announce auditions for its production of “The Curious Savage,” the final production of the 2015-16 season.  Auditions will be held at the theatre at 1704 Brian Lane Way on Monday and Tuesday March 7 and 8 at 7:00 p.m. The cast of eleven calls for 6 females and 5 males, aged 16 and older. Most parts are for adults aged 25-50, with a few roles that could be made slightly younger or older.  Those auditioning should need only attend one evening, according to the play’s director Josh Landers.

 

The play, set in the 1950s,  tells the story of the widowed Mrs. Ethel Savage, and her attempt to keep her deceased husband’s money from her greedy children. In doing so, she finds herself placed in a sanatorium where she meets a cast of characters who at first glance might seem crazy, but are eventually revealed to be the fools of good heart.

 

“The Curious Savage” will be presented at Bedford Little Theatre for five performances on May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 2016.  For more information you can email ltbboxoffice@gmail.com or call the ltb box office at 812-279-3009.
