SCOTT RANDALL (Director/Eddie the Doorman): Scott is RCF’s founder and Artistic Director and, as such, is involved in most of the shows we present, in one way or another. He has been involved in local theatre for over thirty years, and is excited to be working on his third production in this COVID-era of live streamed theatre. Most recently, Scott directed our productions of Lost in Yonkers and Cabaret, and played the role of Donny Dubrow in American Buffalo. Scott also serves as Theatre Club Advisor for the Theatre Club at Snohomish High School. In what little free time he has, he enjoys taking road trips, antique shopping, and drinking lots and lots of coffee!

ERIN CARTER (Ouisa Kittredge): Erin is honored to be included in this wonderful cast. Six Degrees of Separation was a ground-breaking play for its time, as was the film, released three years later. Ouisa is a nuanced character that is a joy to explore as an actor and thanks go to Scott for the opportunity. Erin began acting six years ago as a way to spend time onstage and backstage with her youngest daughter. Since then she studied theatre at Freehold, worked with private coaches in acting and voice, and took a variety of dance classes in an effort the make up for lost time. Some of her favorite performances include A Streetcar Named Desire (once as Blanche at Red Curtain and then as Eunice at SecondStory Rep), Everything in the Garden (Beryl) at Driftwood, Body Awareness (Joyce) at Red Curtain, and 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Rona) with The Repertory Collective. When not acting, Erin enjoys wine and golf, not always at the same time. Special thanks to her husband Todd for his unwavering support.
STEPHAN CHEREWYK (Rick - Sept 4/5): Creative individual trying to recreate the magic of the sun one day at a time. Interests lay in lighting and projection. Graduated from WWU with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Acting and playwriting. Personally believes that every human should travel and take their art and spread it as far as possible. A finger wiggler with beautiful colors more at @glowetrii on insta! Much love!
REBECCA CORT (Tess Kittredge): Rebecca is honored to be making a virtual debut with Red Curtain. Most recently she was seen in Noises Off at Harlequin Productions as Brooke, described as "the unexpected star" and "comedy genius" by NW Theatre and as "a female Curly Howard" by The Sub Times. She also starred in Bye Bye Birdie at SecondStory Repertory as Ursula and Citizen: An American Lyric at Sound Theatre Company, which won both a Gregory Award and Seattle Theatre Writers Award for Outstanding Ensemble. Next hopeful project is still the Red Queen in Cafe Nordo's postponed Curiouser and Curiouser, should COVID mercifully allow an eventual opening. She holds a BA in acting from Western Washington University and is a proud member of the Tweenland trio with Naomi Morgan Entertainment. Her passions include buying planners and Survivor podcasts. Love to her quarantine buddy Dylan who has to put up with all Zoom rehearsals and Shakespeare clubs. Rebecca is represented by The Actor's Group. Instagram: @beckabrooke
DOUG FAHL (Flan Kittredge): Doug is excited to explore this new medium of theater, the zoom reading. Previous favorite shows include: Billy Elliot, Curious Incident..., and Beauty & the Beast (Village Theater); Cabaret, 9-to-5, and Tommy (SMT); The Fantasticks, Little Shop of Horrors and Bye Bye Birdie (Secondstory Rep); Into the Woods (Stage Right); Shipwrecked!

LAYTON GASKINS (Doug Fine): Layton is pretty pumped about this production! Getting the chance to dive into different forms of theatre during these difficult times. It's going to be pretty rad!
JOE GOINS (Dr. Fine): Joe is one of the regular perpetrators around here at Red Curtain. In 2016, covered in muck, he stumbled into an under construction RCF to audition for Arsenic and Old Lace. We scraped off the muck and kept him. It was the wrong decision. Seriously, we don’t know what we would do around here without Joe. Maybe, one day, we’ll figure it out and put a stop to his madness.
DANIEL HANLON (Rick - Sept 11/12): Dan is excited to be working with Red Curtain once again, and moreso, excited to try out a new medium of theatre. Recently, Dan’s creative pursuits have been channeled into the wonderful world of Dungeons and Dragons where he is a dungeon master. Focusing on this and other pursuits like landscaping and laying around playing video games, has been keeping him in a comfortable self-quarantined state during this age of Covid. Speaking of Covid at the beginning of quarantine Dan and his girlfriend got their first puppy, her name is Beauregard (Beau for short) and she is just wonderful. Dan recently was in Dark of The Moon (Burt) at Red Curtain, and in [MISS] (John) at Driftwood Theatre. Dan would like to thank his girlfriend Maddie and his dog Beau for keeping him sane these last few months and a thank you to Gary Gygax for creating a great game that has kept Dan entertained for years.
RONNIE HILL (Paul): Ronnie Hill is eager to portray the character of Paul in this experience of “6 degrees of separation”. Ronnie has been involved in performing since his youth. He later studied as an arts major, performing arts at the University of Montana, and also studied Acting here at Seattle’s Freehold Theater, which included a year of Meisner intensive with Robin Lynn Smith. Ronnie has been active as an actor on the Seattle scene for most of the last decade. He appears regularly at Café Nordo, and is up next in their production of “Curiouser and Curiouser”. One of his Highlights was a Nomination for a Gypsy Rose Award for best male in a supporting role for his portrayal of Uncle Willy and Freeman in Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” at Book-‐It Theater.
ALEXANDER McRAE (Trent Conway): Alexander is a native of Vancouver, Washington. This is his first production with Red Curtain and he is beyond grateful for the opportunity! He received his B.A. in Theatre with a concentration in Acting from Western Washington University. Chicago acting credits include Pride Films; Plays: The Green Bay Tree and Holding the Man; The Public House Theatre: Mr. Lee’s Night of Horrors and The Best Western This Side of the Mississippi.

RAYMOND MILLER (Police Detective): Raymond is delighted to be returning to the Red Curtain Theater and to work with the talented cast members in the production of Six Degrees of Separation. Ray previously played Steve Hubble in the Red Curtain Theaters production of A Streetcar Named Desire (2017), and has also appeared with the Edmond Driftwood Players where he played Reverend Skypes in the production of To Kill a Mockingbird (2018) and with the Phoenix Theater where he played the role of Walter E. Parsons in Inspecting Carol (2019). He thanks his, family, friends and fans for their love and support.
DAVID ALAN MORRISON (Geoffrey): David is excited to be working with both Scott and RCF again. He first acted under Scott Randall's direction on Born Yesterday for Driftwood Players several years ago. Since that time, he's enjoyed the collaboration as producer / actor in The Real Inspector Hound and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City. As a director, he's worked with RCF on Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, The Family Business and Nightwatch. The relationship has proven to be inspiring, creative and exciting. Six Degrees of Separation is the first time he's collaborated on a live internet performance. Always exciting to break new ground. He thanks good friends for their patience with him, Mom for her faith in him and Topher for understanding him more than anyone should. BBE, babe.
JOSH READ (Ben Harrington): Josh is honored and privileged to be a part of this extraordinary production. Josh is no stranger to the acting or Red Curtain Foundation, as he has been a reoccurring face in numerous productions including A Streetcar Named Desire (Collector), You Can’t Take It With You (Tony), Klingon M’aQ’betH (Martoff, Apparition #1), and Dark of the Moon (Conjur Man). When he is not on stage, or in this case on the Zoom stage, he is normally found inside the isles of Fred Meyer as a grocery clerk, tending to every fathomable task at hand. Having been a clerk for nearly six years, he’s no stranger to the chaos of retail, yet nothing could prepare him for what the pandemic would bring. Josh has fought through it, and still continues the fight until all is normal again. When not being an actor, or an essential retail worker, Josh spends his time in the backyard with a fire and some jazz, being with his family, or being with his girlfriend enjoying every ounce of life possible with her. He would like to thank Director Scott Randall for the opportunity, the cast for the memories, his family for the unending support, and his girlfriend for making life so much better.
LEE RODEWALD (Woody Kittredge): Raised in Woodinville, Lee is an aspiring writer and director. His pursuits have resulted in years of varying experiences, from writing various short literature and film, to playing a real life murderer (Peter Leech) for Lifetime’s “Murder in Law,” to experimenting in Cinematic Virtual Reality. As he studies, practices and learns more about storytelling, Lee has also had a long time interest in acting. The Red Curtain’s Six Degrees of Separation will be his first major theatrical performance.
AARON USSERY (The Hustler): Aaron is an actor, director and playwright based out of the Pacific Northwest. Recent acting credits include Mario in Hermes/Agamemnon in "The Odyssey" (iDiom Theater) and Austin in "True West" (Red Curtain). Recent directing forays include a self-written work entitled "Deadhead Chemistry" as a part of iDiom Theater's Serial Killers Play Festival as well as "Orange Flower Water" by Craig Wright (Come Up Productions).

TOPHER WICK (Larkin Harrington): Topher is excited to be working with Red Curtain for the first time. While it's been a couple of years since he acted on the stage, Topher is looking forward to this "virtual" opportunity to return to the theatre. He would like to thank Dave for his support and the kick in the pants he needed to get back on stage. Love you, BBE!
CODIE WYATT (Tess Harrington): Codie is, once again, thrilled to be working with a talented cast and RCF, to bring you a bit of entertainment and enrichment. Although we will not be presenting this show on stage, she is very excited to experiment with alternative forms of presentation to this craft! And let's be real folks, she's pretty excited just to have an opportunity to flex her creative muscles and to be interacting with other adults, er, artists! But never you fear, she has taken the time during this pandemic to watch many exemplary forms of entertainment, mostly watching the entire run of the rebooted series, Doctor Who. She feels confident that this has helped her to hone her craft to an even higher level. But seriously, she was very excited to be able to meet some new faces during this time of quarantine bubbles. She would also like to thank all of you that have joined us on this journey, and for making sure that the art of theater stays alive and well in the community of Marysville and Snohomish county.
