Sue Pope and Peter Gutierrez, both of Palm Coast, are featured in “George Washington Slept Here,” which opened Jan. 6, at the Daytona Playhouse.
The play, directed by Bruce Heighley, is the depiction of trials and tribulations of city boy Newton Fuller, who craves — and gets — a place in the country to call his own, supposedly where George Washington once slept.
Pope, who plays Annabelle Fuller, returns to the playhouse after almost 15 years. She has been in theater for more than 25 years and appeared in shows such as “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” “Grace and Glory,” and “The Grass Harp.” Pope also sings barbershop with the Jacksonville Harmony Show Chorus and is a graduate of Jacksonville University.
Gutierrez, who plays Mr. Kimber, has been involved in regional and community theater, both in Miami as a member of the Miami Repertory Company and in Greenville, S.C. He was recently seen locally as Mitch, in the Flagler Playhouse musical production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” This will be his debut performance at The Daytona Playhouse.
The show runs 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, through Saturday, Jan. 14, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15, at 100 Jessamine Blvd., Daytona Beach.
