Visiting Actors to Give Benefits for SEA and CCT

March 18, 2005 – An acting couple from Vermont who visits the island annually plan to perform fundraisers for two local non-profit organizations in March.
Sam and Barbara Lloyd of the Weston Playhouse in Vermont will present "Love Letters," a two-person play by A.R. Gurney, Saturday, March 26, for Caribbean Community Theater. The show will be staged in the CCT theater in Golden Rock. Tickets are $45 for CCT members and $50 for non-members, including a buffet dinner by Purples in the courtyard at 6:30, the show at 8 p.m., and dessert and coffee in the courtyard at intermission. Reservations can be made at778-1983.
On Sunday, March 27, Sam Lloyd will perform "The Magic of Shakespeare," readings from the bard’s works, for the St. Croix Environmental Association. That performance will be held in the spacious home of Joel and Sandy Seres in Judith’s Fancy. Wine and cheese will be served. Admission is $25 for SEA members, $35 for non-members. Reservations are required. Call 778-1952.
The Lloyds met on the stage of the Weston Playhouse in 1954. Since then they have performed countless roles, together and separately, sharing the stage in such plays as "On Golden Pond," "Noises Off," "Broadway Bound," "The Dining Room" and "Ancestral Voices." They have performed both "Love Letters" and "The Magic of Shakespeare" in numerous engagements around Vermont.
The couple has been a vital part of the Playhouse’s progression from a traditional 10-week summer stock theater to its current status as a leading and innovative regional theater. Their home is a short stroll from the Playhouse.
Sam Lloyd's credits include on and off-Broadway appearances and films including "Spitfire Grill." His theatrical family includes brother Christopher Lloyd of "Taxi" and "Back to the Future" fame and son Sam Jr., currently appearing in "Scrubs" and "Desperate Housewives."
Both are active in their community. Sam served eight years in the Vermont State Legislature and is currently serving his fifth four-year term on the State Environmental Board. He has moderated the Weston Town Meeting for the last 33 years. Barbara is on the board of the town library.
