A special thanks to ActingUp! for this amazing opportunity!

Sarah Rose as Cordelia Ragsdale (Doris Walker) – Sarah has loved the performing arts from a very young age, beginning dance classes at the age of three. Over the years, she has continued to dance/teach dance and has enjoyed singing with her church. She had the honor of being a part of her first ActingUp! production in the Spring of 2023, Fiddler on the Roof, and she is absolutely honored to once again share the stage with such talented people. Sarah would like to thank her family for their continued support, and ActingUp! for welcoming her like family. She gives glory to Jesus Christ for healing her from past health issues to be able to participate in this group and more than that, giving her hope for the days to come.

Joseph Galyean as Grady Williams (Fred Gailey) – Joseph has been writing independent projects ever since attending Film School at Cape Fear Community College. Though having recent experience with stage acting as Juror 5 in 12 Incompetent Jurors and Jacob Marley in Bah, Humbug! Scrooge’s Christmas Carol. Joseph would like to thank his film family for inspiring and encouraging him and his actual family for enabling his insane ideas.

Kyle Quittschreiber as Alex Mialdo (Announcer) – Kyle has been performing on stage since the age of 8. Now 24 years old, he has garnered extensive experience and has played many memorable roles throughout his career, including Harold Hill in "The Music Man," Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol," and the Great Gatsby in “The Great Gatsby Radio Show”.  He is thrilled to be a part of this production and is grateful to ActingUp! for giving him the opportunity to not only act but also step into the role of directing. 

Hana Quittschreiber as Olivia Glatt (R.H. Macy/Mrs. Mara) – She has been performing for over 15 years and still gets a thrill every time she steps on stage. Some of her favorite roles have included, Lina Lamont in “Singing in The Rain,” Scuttle in “The Little Mermaid” and Daisy in “The Great Gatsby a Radio Show”. She would like to thank ActingUp! for creating a space where she gets to not only express herself, but also spend time with her friends and family doing the thing she loves most!

Anderson Lewis as Wallace Ainsley (Mr. Shellhammer/Mr. Mara) – Anderson has been acting for eight years and has been with ActingUp! Homeschool Theater for seven of those.
