Cast of Characters

(Third in a series about creating a new production of “Metamorphoses” at Georgia Shakespeare)

I’d like to introduce you to my traveling companions.  (We are in the room with some amazing people on this journey.) Ten actors play all the roles in all the myths of “Metamorphoses”.   Here’s the lineup, in no particular order:

Chris Kayser: has been in nearly every show Georgia Shakespeare has ever produced; Atlantans know him well as Scrooge in the Alliance Theatre’s annual production of “A Christmas Carol”.

Ann Marie Gideon: a familiar face at Georgia Shakespeare; last appeared as Hero in “Much Ado About Nothing” for Shakespeare in the Park and “Time Stands Still” at Horizon Theatre.

Ann Marie as Eurydice

Kristin Butler: senior theater major at Oglethorpe University and summer intern; on the verge of a great career.

Neal A. Ghant: writer, musician, actor, father; he played a beautiful Caliban in Georgia Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”.

Travis Smith:  actor, musician, singer; you’ve seen him play Rex Evans on USA Network’s “Necessary Roughness.”

Tess Kincaid:  actress and mother (like me!); multiple winner of Atlanta’s Suzi Award for best actress; also on staff at Georgia Ensemble Theatre.

Joe Knezevich:  a GS staple; you may know him as Jonathan Gilbert on “The Vampire Diaries”, one of his many film and TV credits.

Barrett Doyle:  rehearsing with us by day, performing by night in “Seminar at Actor’s Express (see it!); associate artist at Pinch ‘N’ Ouch Theatre.
