Timothy Hull (Director) is making his directorial debut with Studio Players. He has performed as an actor with many of the theatre companies in the area, as well as in New York City and San Francisco. Previous Studio Players productions in which he has performed include Dracula Bites, The 39 Steps, Loot, True West, and Picnic, as well as the Ten-Minute Play Festival. He has an MFA in acting from the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco and has taught as adjunct theater faculty for the University of Kentucky and Transylvania University.

Most recently he performed in 9 to 5: The Musical and A Tuna Christmas with Woodford Theatre. Other favorite credits include The Crucible at SummerFest and Lone Star at Thoroughbred Theatre in Midway. A 2002 graduate of the University of Kentucky, Jason teaches English at Tates Creek High School in Lexington and will soon report to Morehead State University to spend his fourth summer teaching with the Governor’s Scholars Program.

 

Eric Seale (The Manager) is pleased to return to the Studio Players stage again, having spent most of his theatre time recently as a director and production designer. He is the former artistic director of Actors Guild of Lexington. Following this run, he will be heading to the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts for the summer.

 

Megan Mooney (Jane Worthington) is delighted to be performing for the very first time with Studio Players. Megan is a Lexington native with a background in theatre, including performances in A Christmas Carol (Belle) and Durang, Durang (Prunella). While the majority of her acting work has been in film, Megan is excited to be getting back to her roots with this performance as the effervescent Jane.

 

Tom Johnson (A Body) is pleased to return to Studio Players, having previously appeared as a nerve specialist in And Then There Were None. Past roles include Play It Again, Sam (Alan), George Washington Slept Here (Newton), On Golden Pond (Bill), The Day After the Fair (Charles Bradford), A Voyage Round My Father (Clifford Mortimer), Relative Values (Hon. Peter Ingleton), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolfe? (George) and The Rainmaker (Starbuck). The privilege to work with Tim and such a talented and hilarious cast is, to turn a phrase, “to absolutely die for!*

 

Terry Withers (The Waiter) makes his Studio Players debut with this production. He recently performed in Arsenic and Old Lace and Harold and Maude. He has worked at several theatres in Central Kentucky. He resides in Versailles and enjoys acting at Woodford Theatre.

 

David Alan Clark (George Pidgen) is thrilled to return to the Carriage House. Having only worked backstage on various Studio Players productions, he has now weaseled his way onto the stage. A graduate of the UK Department of Theatre and Dance and an Advanced Actor Combatant with the Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD), he is currently working as an actor, fight choreographer, and jack-of-all-trades around local theatres. Among his favorite roles are A Christmas Carol (Jacob Marley), Once Upon a Mattress (Wizard), and Bulgakov’s Dreams (Sharik). David would like to thank everyone for their support.

Past productions include: A Tribute to Carol Burnett, Our Town, Beauty and the Beast, Good News!, A Christmas Carol, The Lilac Forest, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Comedy of Errors, along with numerous workshops and cabarets. She furthered her studies as a Theatre Major at the Chicago College of Performing Arts until moving to Lexington, KY.  This will be her debut performance at Studio Players and she is incredibly honored and excited for the opportunity to perform as Maria and, “make bed.”
