MEET THE CAST

John Clark (Scrooge) John is again delighted to be back at SSR to once again play his dream role of Ebeneezer Scrooge. He has also been seen here as Orgon in Tartuffe, Antonio in Much Ado About Nothing, and Orsini Rosenberg in Amadeus. He has also performed at The Seattle Rep., Empty Space, Pioneer Sq., quiet, Stone Soup, The Virginia City Players, Driftwood and many others around the Seattle area and beyond. Other favorite roles include: Ellard in The Foreigner, Rosencrantz in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Mozart in Amadeus, The Old Man in Fool for Love, Clov in Samuel Beckett’s Endgame, and most recently as Selsdon Mowbray in Noises Off. Wishing everyone a very merry and happy holiday season. Humbug??

Jalyn Green (Bob Cratchit) is pleased to return to Christmas Carol after playing Fred last year. A Seattle native, he has also appeared at SecondStory in Much Ado About Nothing and Born Yesterday. Most recently he appeared as Igor in Burien Actors Theatre's production of Young Frankenstein. Love to his friends and family, Merry Christmas!

Evan Louis Thomas (Solicitor/Joe/Topper/Wilkins) has been acting in the greater Seattle area for the past five years. He was last seen at SSR in Rumplestiltskin as the Miller/Prince/Rumplestiltskin's puppeteer. Some other credits include A Chorus Line (Mike), The Producers (Chorus), Wonderland: Alice Adventures (Gryphon), and The Tempest (Ferdinand). Many thanks to friends and family for their constant love and support.

Michael Ramquist (Marley/Christmas Present) During a recent lecture, the famous director Anne Bogart asserted that we in the theater, “are in the business of listening to dead people.” This is a particularly apt observation for tonight’s production. The stories that theater presents draw us closer to one another than any “technology” ever will. And in that closeness to others we are (like Scrooge himself) better able to recognize the best in ourselves. Michael wishes everyone a memorable holiday!

Keaton Kowal (Ebby/Peter Cratchit) age 12, is delighted to be in SSR’s production of A Christmas Carol! He was recently seen as Franklin in Book-It Repertory Theatre’s The Financial Lives of the Poets, a Gregory Awards Best Production of the Year Nominee. Many thanks to his family, Ken, cast & crew. Thanks for coming - enjoy the show!

Taylor Davis (Jane/Rose/Christmas Future/Choreography) This is Taylor’s debut with SecondStory Rep! Taylor received a BFA in Musical Theater from the University of Oklahoma and has performed in, directed, and choreographed many shows over the years. Favorites include: Puck- A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Bacchae- The Bacchae (GreenStage); Penelope- See How They Run (Valley Center Stage); Kate- Taming of the Shrew, Queen Anne- Richard III (OSP); Fredrika- A Little Night Music, Dora Strang- Equus (University), Jeffrey/Choreographer- Godspell (Evergreen Family Theatre); and directing Closer (Orasai) and Death By Chocolate (EFT). Much love to her amazing friends, family, and cast!

Jennifer Loschen (Martha Cratchit) is excited to be a part of A Christmas Carol! Past performances at SecondStory include Beggar Woman in Sweeney Todd, Babe in Working and Aphra in Children if Eden. She is also happily employed as SecondStory's intern. She hopes you enjoy the show!

Elizabeth Grant (Mrs. Cratchit / Quartet) is a recent graduate of Seattle University with a dual degree in Theater and Environmental Studies. Recent credits include A Chorus Line (BPA), Scrooge! (SMT), Steel Magnolias (WICA), and Little Women the Musical (WCT). She is delighted to be making her SSR debut. Love to all!
