Secretary & Founding Member Leslie Everitt, Secretary Leslie Everitt is a co-founder of Merely Players, Inc. and has been a Board Director since the company's inception in 1991. She got involved in the founding of Merely Players while taking a class called “Acting for Everyone.” The instructor of that class, Nan Howard, and about six other students, created the group which has since produced more than 20 successful shows in 15 seasons. Please see the history link for more about our beginnings. Not content to stay behind the curtain, Leslie also loves to be on stage. Most recently she performed for Merely Players in the role of the exuberant Aunt Eller in Oklahoma! Additionally, Leslie enjoys designing sets and assisting with set construction. She was set designer for Cheaper by the Dozen, Oliver, Tom Sawyer, Really Rosie, Winterfest (Little Women), Narnia, The Hobbit, and the first show we ever produced: The Velveteen Rabbit. Dabbling with directing, Leslie was of the Directors for Merely Players' “Winterfest” of one-act plays and directed a script based on scenes from the book, Little Women. She also Assistant Directed with director Nan Howard for Merely Player's production of The Hobbit. The Hobbit had a cast of fifty with a mix of children and adults. In her workaday world, Leslie just received her English Degree and Certification in Secondary Education and will begin work this fall at a local high school. She also has twenty plus years experience in computer software training and administration. The mother of two, Leslie's interest in drama began as a child when she and her sisters would perform for their parents, just like the March girls did in Little Women. She was a voracious reader with an active imagination and a desire to make my dreams become reality. Leslie has fond memories of gathering all the kids in her New Jersey neighborhood together one summer to put on a play. Using the soundtrack from the movie Snow White, she directed a crowd of kids in an unscripted performance created from her memory of the story line. They rehearsed, created costumes, and made tickets; they transformed her slate patio into a stage, with lawn chairs for the audience. They never actually filled those lawn chairs with live audience members, but transported themselves into the magical, creative world of acting and singing for hours on end. They also created great memories and she says, "Looking back, I think it was a rehearsal for the real playmaking to come."
