|Jill Matel (Lil Bit)
is thrilled to be returning to the stage for this
production! Fun fact: Jill failed her driver's test 3 times before
finally passing in a snow storm. She had an accident on her 2nd
attempt. She is currently finishing her CMT degree at NEIU and has
performed several times at Stage Center. A choreographer as well,
Jill has performed extensively in the Milwaukee and Chicago theater
communities. Thanks to a fabulous cast and crew, Angie and RJ for his
all support. LU!
|Mark Dodge (Uncle Peck)
Mark and Stage Center Theater: Like chocolate and peanut butter, they
belong together. Smuggled out of New Jersey in
a gypsy's steamer trunk, he wound up in Chicago and earned
academic honors at Columbia College. He founded Fury Theatre where
he's Artistic Director and #1 coffee drinker. Recent performances
include Oberon (Fury), Hyde #3 (N.E.I.U.) and Bullshot Crummond (Jack
Benny Center). He's a writer and director and recently did one or both
to Fury's first three young performer series plays: Hamlet and Eggs,
Professor Evil's Bedtime Stories for Zombies! and Romeo & Juliet.
This summer he'll be directing Much Ado About Nothing in the park. His
girlfriend Arin will be playing Beatrice. And now you know the rest of
the story. Good day!
