Audiences at Union Street Player’s production of Morning’s at Seven will likely find something very familiar about the young woman playing Myrtle Brown. That’s because Jamie Kacur just finished playing the lead role of Alice in USP’s holiday musical The Christmas Post. She had so much fun in her stage debut that she came back for more!
Jamie is originally from Tallahassee, Florida and came to Pella to take a job as school psychologist for Heartland AEA. She currently works with Knoxville and Twin Cedars schools. When not working or spending time on stage with USP, Jamie enjoys biking, reading, scrapbooking, beading, taking pictures, hiking, and traveling. Of course, USP has kept her busy for the past few months – but Jamie doesn’t mind. She’s enjoyed meeting people through community theater.
"I love getting to know new people and feel like I am a part of something. I have also enjoyed building upon a new found joy. Acting is different than anything I have ever done…it is fun to pretend to be someone else for awhile."
Jamie’s role of Myrtle Brown has been a good challenge for her second role. It’s a much different part than the one she played in The Christmas Post. Myrtle is a 39 year-old woman who has been dating her boyfriend, Homer, for twelve years. Homer’s finally decided to bring her home to meet his family, and Myrtle carries with her a secret that forces her to finally press Homer to marry her once-and-for-all. Myrtles visit, and her secret, begins a series of events that will change Homer’s family forever.
We invite you to discover Myrtle’s secret for yourself and find out if she will finally get Homer to marry her!
