Meredith Armstrong (Facilities Manager)

What started as an act of convenience has turned into years of commitment to caring for GreenStage’s diverse assortment of theatrical goodies. From Fluffy the Deer to the smallest plastic kazoo, from Falstaff’s belly to Lear’s storm, from Juliet’s red dress to Bottom’s donkey ears, if it is in our collection, she will help you find it. (Actually, she’s a little scared by how much she knows about the contents of the storage space. For instance, she knows where all of those items are without having to look.) Thank you for coming out to the park and supporting live theatre!

 

Erin Day (Artistic Director)

Since moving from Washington D.C., she found a home in GreenStage and finds nothing grander than playing with them and with you. Around town, she has performed at Seattle Public Theater, Theatre Babylon, Seattle Fringe Festival, The Washingtonians! and others. She is currently a member of The Midnite Mystery Players and is honored to serve as Artistic Director for GreenStage. Thanks to her amazing family and especially to you. Enjoy the show!

 

Ken Holmes (Managing Director)

Since 1993, Ken has been working with GreenStage in many capacities. Before joining the company, he had never even read an entire Shakespeare play. Happily, and thanks to GreenStage, he is now proud to say he has taken part in productions of all 39 of Shakespeare’s 37 plays. Ken has worked as an actor, director, prop maker, set designer, graphic designer, photographer, board member, artistic director, managing director, and…well, pretty much everything that needs doing when producing theatre. In the real world, Ken is a graphic designer and photographer, and lives in Kent with his loverly wife Lisa, and their daughter Ruby.

 

Will Peterman (Web manager)

In college, Will tried to prove that Oxford wrote Shakespeare, but accidentally found that Spenser wrote Marlowe. (Stratford, yo!) After a few years as a code herder and half a career explaining programmers to other programmers, he chucked it all and ran off to chase bees. He’s probably stalking one now. Bees need dirt!

 

Michelle Rodriguez (Production Manager)

This is Michelle’s seventh year working with GreenStage and her fifth year as Production Manager. In years past she has stage managed for GreenStage on Taming of the Shrew (2012), Hamlet (2008) and Richard III (2007). Since receiving her BA in theatre at the University of Southern California, she has worked at theatres in and around Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle. Local haunts include Burien Actors Theatre, Centerstage, ReAct, SecondStory Repertory, and Taproot Theatre. Love and thanks to her husband, Thomas, and their adorable new baby, Olivia.
