AFD is delighted to welcome back the uber-talented and super-nice powerhouse of Paul Alperin, who'll be bringing down the house as Fester in our upcoming production of "The Addams Family." He does a lot at AFD, from playing the cello to singing and dancing to helping build sets to participating in selecting plays.
He previously appeared on-stage in "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" (William Barfée) and "Avenue Q" ("Brian"), and in the pit orchestras for "Violet," "The Light in the Piazza," and "Nine."
A resident of Arlington, Paul has performed with several professional theater companies in Metro Boston as an actor and cellist, including SpeakEasy Stage Company ("Shakespeare In Love"), American Repertory Theater/Company One ("Miss You Like Hell"), The Umbrella Stage Company ("Parade" and "Bonnie and Clyde: The Musical"), and Bad Habit Productions ("Man of No Importance" and "Play On: Music that Moves Us"). Other favorite roles include Josephine Strong in "Urinetown: The Musical" (Longwood Players) and Lord Farquaad in "Shrek: The Musical" (Open Door Theater).
Don't miss him in "The Addams Family" coming soon!
Paul works in HR for a Cambridge-based biomanufacturing company, and he served on the Play Reading Committee for AFD's '18-'19 and '19-'20 seasons. Love and thanks for Rebekah and Newton, whose tail-wags make every day meaningful.
