Joanna Daniel is delighted to be returning to SDP to play in this farcical mystery!! During the past couple of years she has been seen at Arís in The Artist Man and the Mother Woman, and Georgia Ensemble Theatre in Calendar Girls and Charley’s Aunt. She also played the role of Lord Capulet in Fern Theatre’s all-female production of Romeo and Juliet, as well as the title character in their all-female production of King Lear. When not performing, Joanna keeps busy behind the scenes at Arís (pronounced Ah-Reesh), Atlanta’s Celtic Theatre Company, where she plays the roles of Treasurer, Producer and Founding Member. Many thanks to Robert and Suehyla and the whole team at SDP, and most of all to you for supporting live theatre!

Bryn Striepe
Bryn Striepe

Bryn Striepe is really trying hard not to start this bio off with how happy she is to be a part of her first Stage Door production, because everyone says that. The problem is, it’s true. Atlanta credits include Horizon: Freed Spirits (MJ); Synchronicity: In the Next Room, or the vibrator play (Mrs. Givings), Lasso of Truth (The Amazon); Actor’s Express: Seminar (Izzy); Out of Box: Rapture, Blister, Burn (Avery); The Weird Sisters: Hot Pink (Taatanya); Pinch’N’Ouch: Wall Street Wedding (Becky); The Fern Theatre: Romeo & Juliet (Romeo), Being Alive (Jen), Macbeth (Lady Macbeth).

Pat Young is thrilled to be doing his first show at Stage Door Players! Pat is an actor, improviser, and entertainer with a BA in theatre from FSU. His last shows include The Tribute Artist with Process Theatre, Knock Em' Dead with Gypsy Theatre, and Lillian Likes It with Essential Theatre. Pat owns a trivia company called Trivial Matters, which has the best trivia games in Atlanta, and that isn't an exaggeration. He also has a Guinness World Record to his name. You should ask him about it. Pat would like to thank his lady friend and the cats. Though lets be honest, the cats probably don't care about any of this.
