Featuring (in order of appearance):
Ann Kathrine Grippo (Lady Bird Johnson) Enjoying everything that there is to enjoy about the theater...from working behind the scenes with lighting and sound, hairstyling and makeup, to performing such roles as Miss Prism (Importance of being Ernest) Lyndsay (Some Girls), Ida Webb (The Twentieth Century) with various one act plays and monologues under my belt...now taking advantage of this virtual world of ZOOM! It has brought me to Theater Box, and in the company of this welcoming, kind and talented group of women. I thank Kate and Karen for this extraordinary opportunity to portray this witty and brave Lady Bird. Break legs all as we explore these wonderful women. 
Kerry Boyle (Pat Nixon) What an honor to have been a part of the Theatre Box community for the past ten years and to join Ann and Tina in this production, which will be my eleventh with this theater group.  The Theatre Box family is warm, welcoming and always eager to share their time and talent.  It has been a blessing in my life to have collaborated with this generous, hilarious collection of souls.  To all those who have played a part in Theatre Box’s past, present and future – thank you for keeping community theater alive and well!  Many thanks to Kate Lenzo and Karen Brucia for the opportunity to portray Pat Nixon in Tea For Three: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty, and for their kindness and support.  Much love to my family, my gals, and my tribe for ensuring that, in the words of Norman Lear, "I never live alone or laugh alone.
Tina D'Amato (Betty Ford) has graced many stages with robust, colorful portrayals including rough-and-tumble Josie Hogan in A Moon for the Misbegotten; German theatrical agent Lillian Troy in I Hate Hamlet; Irish matriarch Kate Mundy in Dancing at Lughnasa; daring actress Mrs. Kendall in The Elephant Man; and Beatrice Carbone in A View from the Bridge for which she earned Outstanding Performer honors from the Theatre Association of NY State. In Sylvia, she personified three characters including an hilarious turn as a man, and in Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women was profoundly touching as a dying 92-year-old. For A.C.T. in Yonkers, she brought to life Lillian Tractman (Love, Sex & the IRS), murderous Mrs. Shandig (The Runner Stumbles), and led a gender-diverse cast in Twelve Angry Jurors - redefining Henry Fonda’s Juror #8. Trumping all was her embodiment of Zelda Fitzgerald in The Last Flapper, a one-woman tour de force. She is grateful to Theatre Box, and to Bobby always for all the right reasons.

Tea For Three is produced by special arrangement with
THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY, INC., of Woodstock Illinois
