An Evening with Charles “The Lord” Shaughnessy
August 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm
ALL LEVELS OF SUPPORT ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED
Enjoy a fun evening with Charles who will be sharing stories of his life and career and how he truly became a “lord” all while helping to support 2 great non-profits & “partners in the port” – Turning Point, Inc. and the Firehouse Center for the Arts.
Charles was born to a showbiz family in London and educated at Eton and Cambridge University, where he tried to “do something sensible” by getting a degree in Law.
It didn’t work.
Performing in the celebrated Footlights Revue was a lot more fun than Torts and Land Law so he decided to join the family business after all. After a few years of gainful employment in England, Charles pursued a gorgeous American actress to Los Angeles, married her and raised two equally gorgeous daughters, who are the light of his life. He made his professional U.S. debut on this very stage in 1984 in Howard Brenton’s “The Genius”. He went on to a successful and multi-faceted career on stage and screen that took him from exotic locations like Hawaii and Paris to stages on Broadway and The North Shore Music Theatre. He considers himself extremely lucky to have made a living in this crazy business and has enjoyed every second. You might recognize him from his roles on some beloved TV shows like The Nanny and Mad Men, but then again….you might not .
