Chuck HollemanBy day Chuck does any number of mundane things, such as selling industrial chemicals, trying to sell his first historical novel to a publishing industry that hasn't yet recognized his talents, and getting recalcitrant teenagers off to high school in the morning.... By night, he is an avid theater buff, working over the past few years with a number of community theater groups.

He has had many memorable roles including Benjamin Franklin in "1776" (Concord Players - Which played in Boston's Faneuil Hall), Inspector Levine in "Catch me if You Can" (Theatre 111), Father Demitri in "Zorba!"

"Working with Nashoba Players has been great fun! Where else but in community theater can you get to work so quickly and intensely with a group of dedicated and creative people who love what they are doing? You make friends that you know you will always have, and you will always look forward to the opening of another show'."
