Michael Cassano (Spud, the Whipping Boy) abandoned by wolves and raised by his parents, Michael arrived at our theatre from Las Vegas, Nevada, where he performed nightly in Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding and the now-cancelled Star Trek: The Experience.

Robb Conner (Pirate Stinky) is a new face here at the Santa Monica Theatre, but not in Los Angeles. Robb credits director Cathy Deobler for saving him after Hurricane Katrina and after years of healing, is finally being released back into the wild. It’s not the destination, but the journey. And it’s been a wild ride.
Stepy Kamei (Princess Fuchsia) trained at the The Groundlings Theatre, where she laughed until she cried, and Berg Studios, where she cried until she laughed. She was recently seen at the Santa Monica Theatre in the staged reading of the TV pilot “Guns and God” as Annabelle.

By day you will find her teaching at California State University, Northridge; but her absolute favorite place to be is on the boards!
