Where in the World is SHIRLEY FEENEY

20121010-125508.jpg
Shirley Feeney (Cindy Williams)—Shirley Wilhelmina Feeney is the perky, positive one. She also tends to be meek, while Laverne is more outspoken and athletic; this doesn’t mean that Shirley is a wimp or a pushover, as she is quite capable of standing up for herself when necessary—she just isn’t quite as aggressive about it as her friend. One of Shirley’s most prized possessions is “Boo Boo Kitty”, a large stuffed cat which sits next to her bed

She left the show in ’82 due to a pregnancy from husband Bill Hudson who had previously been married to actress Goldie Hawn. She has gone on to make a few movies, helped produce “The Father Of The Bride” movies with husband Bill, do Jenny Craig commercials and do guest spots on the TV show “For Your Love” (1998). Then theatre acting had her name written all over it. You’d never know it by looking at her career, but Cindy Williams prefers the stage to the camera. “That’s my first love, theater,” said Williams. “That’s what I was trained to do. That’s what I’m comfortable with.” “I think people will love it because there’s something for everyone,” said Williams.

There’s also plenty for Williams and the cast of four other actors, to do on stage. They sing, dance and tell a lively tale with the help of an on-stage band.

“They’re all excellent and so much fun to be on stage with,” said Williams, of her co-stars. “I love the cast, I love the fun of it.”

Cindy will be in Gainesville, GA October 24 starring in NUNSET BOULEVARD presented by The Arts Council. For tickets call 770.534.2787 or visit http://www.TheArtsCouncil.net
