She has performed all over the Puget Sound region, with some of her favorite roles being the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella (SecondStory) Erica in Game Show (Theater Schmeater) and Nancy Drew in Calling Nancy Drew (STAGEright). Mary's currently in a touring children's show with BookIt Repertory Theatre, where she gets to travel all over WA state to bring the book "El Deafo" to life, in a fully bilingual production (Sign Language and English). She has also been a Dickens Caroler for the past four years, and is an American Sign Language interpreter. Mary wishes to thank Dangella, Aunt Geri, Robb, Lavina, and Pat, for all of their endless love and support!

Alan E. Garcia (Mortiz) has dreamt of playing Moritz for the past eight-and-a-half years. He's still in shock. He would like to thank Mom, Dad, Bryan, and Bella, for never trying to convince him to pursue a more "realistic career"; his incredible scene partner Simone, for holding and supporting him throughout this entire process (#ThankYouDuncan); his entire Spring Awakening Family, for breathing life into this crazy dream of his; and you reading this, for supporting the arts! In memory of Ketan. Dedicated with all his love to Cooper and Lady W.

Emily Welter (Wendla) is thrilled to be performing her dream role. She was last seen in Mack and Mabel (Sing Out Louise! Theatricals/SSR), Jekyll & Hyde (Renton Civic Theatre), and 9 to 5 The Musical (Seattle Musical Theatre). A Kansas City native, Emily graduated from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN and works full time as a civil engineer. Much love to Seth and Hannah and thanks in advance to her parents for covering their eyes during the scary parts.
