Remembering Sean McGee and David Wright

Remembering Sean McGee and David Wright

Our hearts are hurting for two long-time Phamaly members who passed away this month: Sean McGee and David Wright.

They were both invaluable members of our Phamaly, and will be dearly missed by all who have inhabited the stages and spaces of Phamaly Theatre Company. Their contributions to our company were great, but their kindness and Phamaly values were even greater.

We plan to honor both of these fantastic actors (and friends) in the coming months. Events will be open to all who loved them.

  1. I started my acting career 13 years ago. I was already 51 years old. David took me under his wings and taught me much of what I know of acting today. He was great mentor bust most of all he was a good friend.

  2. I frist ment David when I was 18 years old at an Phamaly audition workshop I believe it was for fiddler on the roof. I was 17 or 18 he and the great Lucy as well as Mark took me underneath their wings and taught me how to get my confidence back and how to learn to trun on stage. David was always so sweet and supportive he had wisdom and much love to give and gave the best bear hugs. God speed my friend tell we meet again.

  3. David and Sean were both so very, very passionate about the Theatre. David was incredibly encouraging and supportive to me and I will forever feel indebted to him for that.
    He epitomized the PHAMALY spirit of teamwork, humility, kindness and genuine love. He made every show that he was in better for everyone! He was even better behind the scenes with his taking care of everyone and most especially as our Stage Manager extraordinaire when he was the outreach coordinator. I very much enjoyed working very closely with Sean during “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest”. He was eerily great as chief Bromden. Also, I’ll never forget the time we went down to five points for a poetry reading. When we got done with our performances the room felt electric! Life with Sean was an adventure!!
