For shooting in blackness, I was happy to get two profile pics — with heads intact. That’s Brian Colonna (top), and Erin Rollman (above).

There are just three Buntport actors in “A Knight to Remember,” but the other absent, ensemble members are referenced/parroted/mocked in a comic aside that harkens back to a device the Buntporters used quite effectively “Titus Andronicus.” (Aside: Who knew Evan’s voice was that high-pitched?)

If you know Brian’s fourth-grade classmate, Danielle (first kid on the front row left), you might (or might not) want to tell her she played a very large role in the development of our young knight — and in his ensuing stage tale.

Contrary to what it might look like, virtually nothing that happens in a typical Buntport show is unscripted.

A simple overhead projector spells out what a 9-year-old Brian once thought were the necessary character attributes for knighthood. And castmate Erin Rollman is never shy about pointing out that spelling must surely not be one of them.
