Moe Harrington selected as lead in ‘Mame’

Director Inez Manor Parker has cast Moe Harrington as the lead in the Oswego Players’ 75th anniversary season musical, “Mame.”  

Although Harrington is making her debut with the Players, she is no stranger to local theatre, being well-known particularly in the Syracuse area.

Harrington said she is thrilled to be under the direction of Parker with whom she shared a stage in the Oswego Summer Theatre production of “Anything Goes,” playing the part of Reno Sweeney.

She is the associate development director for the Q Center, a safe place for LGBTQ youth; a state licensed massage therapist for 18 years; and a board member at the Redhouse Theatre in Syracuse.

She has toured the east coast extensively, with favorite credits including “The Graduate,” “Funny Girl,” “Pete ‘n Keeley,” “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” “Romance/Romance” and her SAMMY nominated one-woman show, “One Moe Time,” with music director, Jeff Unaitis.

Harrington has appeared in the original cast of Jeff Kramer’s “Lowdown Lies” and “Reaching for Marsby.”

Skilled also as a director, Harrington’s credits include “Torch Song Trilogy,” and “Blue Plate Special,” starring Oswego Players producer and actress, Tammy Wilkinson.

In addition, she has appeared in over 20 titles for Full Cast Audio and is the voice of Rosethorn in the “Circle of Magic” book series, written by New York Times Bestselling author, Tamora Pierce.

The show is scheduled for production July 5, 6, 7, 12 and 13 at 8 p.m.; July 14 matinee at 2 p.m.
