“Bill Oberst Jr. won the part of ‘Samuel Lapp,” our stern but loving Amish father, with his amazing audition. Amish men and fathers are a mystery to most of us. They are perceived to be emotionally distant and rigid. But Bill brought great humanity to his role as Samuel, and his performance built bridges of understanding to fatherhood in general that every father can relate to.
Bill is a consummate professional. He did his homework and brought his ‘A’ game to every scene that he was in. I can’t say enough about what a terrific actor and a tremendous human being he is. I would recommend Bill to other productions anytime, anywhere.”
