Emily Montesinos – Actor

My name is Emily Montesinos. I have never been in a play. This stage has been my classroom and in a time of political upheaval, I draw strength from my character, Agate.  Agate encourages me to find my voice and inspires me to practice  using it effectively when something feels out of alignment. This play draws on many themes surrounding the desire to simply live well and is delivered in a way that reaches into your heart from a hundred years ago, still finding application in our current day. I hail from Georgia. I was raised in a society where I learned to second guess myself, to doubt my own inner guide, to look to the person in charge to run things well. Through this role I am learning how to express my passionately political self. In the play I am active in speaking up for the collective betterment of conditions. I feel honored to practice and perform skills that are only making me stronger. With Hope and Love, enjoy the show.

Bill Frasure – Actor

Bill Frasure, age unknown, was born in Houston, TX on August 23, 1989. 

He exploded onto the acting scene with his electric and controversal portrayal of Santa Clause in his senior year of high school. Having conquered musical theater in a single bound, he spent the next decade in quiet contemplation, carefully deciding what to do next. After a brief and disastrous career selling Sport Clogs, he proudly returned to the world of theater. He promises to not forget everyone after this performance launches him to international fame.

David Beigel – Actor

David Beigel is a creator, an eccentric apparition, and a faithful instigator of all that is love. He is hands man, a craftsman, and a poet in the know. Forever challenging the ever feared unseen, and inspiring others to embrace their all but forgotten muse’, he will not rest until the false self has been exposed, and quietly recesses into the gray. Once he was there, now he is here, and soon he will be; somewhere else.
