    Glenn Semones

    Glenn Semones may be the newest member of our team but he is also one of the strongest. Often attaining super hero status with this family, his talents know no bounds. As our IT guru, marketing consultant, videoagrapher and film director, his energy is limitless and his patience could earn him Sainthood. He is a more than a welcomed addition and we are Blessed to consider him a part of us.


    Constantina Moody

    Constantina Moody was the youngest member of this team until she and husband Cory graced us with tiny baby JAM.
    Baby JAM is our Mascot, Cory is our Musician and Business Analyst and Constantina is one of our Writers and Collaborators. She has been involved in the Theatre world since she was a munchkin at five years old. Her favorite roles would include Lauren in “Circle, Mirror, Transformation”, Young Attosokomiski in 1607, The youngest Indian in Peter Pan, Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, and Christine in Phantom. She has appeared in episodes of Wicked Attrations, Monsters, and Happily Never After. She thanks God for his Blessings and for making her family a part of this loving team.


    George Pantas

    George Pantas (Producer/Actor) brings many years of experience in producing, marketing, and acting. His love of the screen and stage from an early age has led him to produce and be a featured player in a variety of comedy plays set in a dinner theatre style setting such as “In Search of a Liar”, “A Really Big Dummy” and “The Lazy One”. More recently, “My Big Fat Greek Island Wedding”, “Return to the Island” and “The Island Brothers” were all performed to sold out audiences.

    George is excited to bring new, fresh, vibrant talent to our area in this newest production of “My Big Fat Greek Murder”.


    JoAnn Pantas

    JoAnn Pantas (Producer/Actor) Thanks to God for the Blessings that he has bestowed on her and for this amazing opportunity to not only share and create art but to do it in such a historically important location. During her first visit to Virginia JoAnn fell in love with this area as her (now) husband, George brought the stories of battles and discoveries to life on the fields of Jamestown & Yorktown . We hope to do the same for generations to come as we also share God’s love and word along the way. With a theatrical background spanning 40 years, this theatre is a dream come true and she doesn’t know of another team she would rather be a part of. There is no greater joy in her life than to work and play and grow with her family and this company allows them to do all of that and more. Thank you for being a part of their journey and for allowing them the honor of entertaining you, serving you food for thought (and pleasure) and hopefully making you smile.

    George Pantas

    George Pantas (Poppy and others) is extremely happy to be playing the part he was born to play: That of a boisterous Greek father proud of his Greek heritage and culture.  George has loved the theater and acting from an early age.  After all the word “theater” is a Greek word and everyone knows that the Greeks invented theater!

    Through the years, he has acted in local theater productions playing a variety of supporting and major roles.  Cast as ”George”, one of the leads in “My Big Fat Island Wedding”, as “Theo”, another lead in “Return to the Island” and as “George” in “The Island Brothers” were roles that he will cherish forever.

    He is extremely grateful for the opportunity to have learned under the great Hugh Copeland from the Hurrah Players, Virginia’s leading family musical theater company in such productions as “Willy Wanka and the Chocolate Factory” playing “Mr. Jopeck” and the “Sound of Music” as the evil “Hans Zeller”.

    Film and television have always fascinated George and he was very fortunate to have stared in several local television commercials, and as a featured extra in two television mini series: “A woman named Jackie” and “Vanishing Son” and the independent film “Prison to Praise”.

    George is very proud of his supporting work in the television shows: “Wicked Attractions” and “FBI: Criminal Pursuit”.

    George’s longest continuing role (7 years) has been that of Vanguard Championship Wrestling’s the “VCW Commissioner”; a role that he has originated and is very proud of.
    A born educator and entertainer, George loves teaching his students at Hampton High School and the public at large as a contributing entertainment and sports writer to the military paper “The Flagship” and as the Master of Ceremonies “ (The Voice) of both the Norfolk and Newport News Greek Festivals.

    George thanks God for his continued blessings and the unconditional love of his family.  He is super excited to be sharing his Greek culture with everyone attending “My Big Fat Greek Murder”. OPA!

    JoAnn Pantas

    JoAnn has been “back stage” for most of her theatrical career and her favorite role was teaming up with her daughter Aliki to be her stage manager, producer and co-teacher with the Hurrah Players. Then in approximately 2008 she was dragged on stage to play Erma Slocum, a church lady in Best Christmas Pageant Ever, and it changed her life forever! She has gone on to play various roles including appearances in episodes of Wicked Attractions and Happily Never After. She thanks that director, Aliki, and Hugh Copeland for opening a new world for her and her family. she also thanks God for his many Blessings and love and Connie, Aliki and George for their love and support. Lastly thanks to Angel for her unconditional love and forgiveness. for leaving her home alone during these productions.
