Billy Dempster

is over the moon to be a part of this production and to be working with so many of his friends (Beth….finally!!).  It’s a privilege to be a part of Theatreworks where he previously appeared as Hysterium in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Forum and Howard in Moon Over Buffalo.  Other favorite roles include Eugene in the Brighton Beach trilogy, Ellard in The Foreigner, Motel in Fiddler on the Roof and Sir Andrew in Twelfth Night.  Billy has a BA in Theater Arts from WCSU, has toured the country with several children’s theater companies and has worked at Danbury Hospital for 20 years (yikes!).  Thanks to Alicia, Sabine, Delaney and most importantly Isabelle (his inspiration for Leaf) for being his greatest cheering section.  Billy dedicates his performance to the developers of Spell Check for helping him become the person he is today.
