It's the second week of rehearsal for the company of TWO STORIES - a world premiere production by local playwright Elaine Jarvik. This play's fascinating themes and complex characters are brought to life by five of the best Salt Lake City actors. We'd like to introduce you to the cast of TWO STORIES.
Elena Dern is no stranger to SLAC. She's appeared in SATURDAY'S VOYEUR 2012, BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, DR. SEUSS'S THE CAT IN THE HAT and has assistant choreographed SATURDAY'S VOYEUR 2013 and 2014. She's a proud graduate of the University of Utah's Actor Training Program.
Alexandra Harbold has done almost everything there is to do at Salt Lake Acting Company - she's acted in ICE GLEN, SIX YEARS, and CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION, she's directed THE PERSIAN QUARTER and (a man enters), she's designed posters and newsletters, done dramaturgical work, answered the phone, taken care of VOYEUR parties, baked the most delicious scones for staff meetings, and much more during her six years on SLAC's staff.
This marks Tamara Johnson-Howell's first time on SLAC's stage, but Utah theatre-goers will recognize her from productions at Pygmalion Theatre, Utah Rep, Pinnacle Acting Company, and Utah Theatre Artists. When she's not working on a show herself, she's teaching the lucky students at Lakeview Academy how it's done.
Tito Livas is another SLAC newbie. Tito hails from the north (Idaho) and has travelled the world performing with Holland America, Theatre Works USA, and Walt Disney World, just to name a few. We're thrilled to have him here in Salt Lake City.
You may remember Zack Phifer as the well-meaning neanderthal Michael in GOD OF CARNAGE. Or from episodes of "Seinfeld" or "Murphy Brown". Or perhaps from "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion". We remember him as a baker and bringer of delicious goods and one of our favorite actors.
We asked them to answer a few weird questions, so we could all get to know each other a little better. Enjoy!
