DRAMA and COMEDY... 


DEAN SNOOK

 





DEAN SNOOK

 

In 1996, Dean played the murderous Jonathon Brewster in the classic comedy Arsenic and Old Lace, originally cast with Boris Karloff in the 1941 movie of the same name.

Dean's nightly make-up routine was always interesting, taking the better part of an hour for the transformation to the bitter and twisted Jonathon.

 

Later that year, he directed and performed in his one act stage adaptation of John Hughes' 1984 film The Breakfast Club, playing the delinquent teenager John Bender.

This adaptation (specifically for the Great Lakes Drama Festival) won several awards, including Best Ensemble Performance. This show featured talented new actors, including Jason Towers, Scott Probst, Erin Richardson and Amber Pooley.

Richard Vernon was played by Mike Collins RIP.

Dean appeared as Garry LeJeune in Noises Off! in March 2000.

Directed by Ian Schubert and Lyn Moore, the cast included Gary Stamm, Ellie Richardson, Arna Fotheringham, Jason Towers, Belinda McDonnell, Stacey Brassell and Paul Eade.

Noises Off! is a brilliant farce in three acts - a play about a play and is always a triumph when done well.
