It's hard to imagine the Ansonia without Gina Clarke. Her first production here was as Sally in You're a Good Man Charlie Brown in 2012. The following year she was cast as Jessie Mae Watts in the critically acclaimed A Trip to Bountiful by Director Tommy Wooten. That show went on to be nominated for 5 MTA awards in Charlotte including a nomination for Gina as Best Supporting Actress. She and Wooten formed a bond that has lasted to this day. She helped launch the Summer Youth Program, now in its 6th year. She wears many hats here at the Ansonia, including actress, choreographer, assistant director to directing our runaway hit Smoke on the Mountain. With the exception of two shows, she has played a vital part of every single production here. She is currently in rehearsals for All Shook Up, where she will play the lead role of Natalie. She recently directed
On Golden Pond with the Uwharrie Players and this summer she will be directing for them once again.
Gina is wife to Jason Clarke and mother to Isaac, Caden and Ava, who have essentially grown up in our theatre. She is a homeschool mom and is proud to be passing her love for theater to her three children.
We love you, Gina! Thank you for all you do!!
The spotlight is on YOU!
