headshot-kaitlyn-smithKaitlyn Smith performs as a Sound Doctor, creating live sound effects, for EARBUD THEATER: ESCAPE!

What do you love about the character you play?
I’m creating the sounds to help bring the audience further into the world of the show, and I love that it is something incredible and unique to this production. I’ve never experienced anything like this before and I’m enjoying it very much!

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?
“SLEEP!”

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?
For me it’s working in a medium I have very little experience with. Doing live sound is a challenge and I’m learning a lot, and I have a great deal of respect for Foley artists that do sound work all the time.

What’s going to surprise people about this show?
I think the way the stories play out may not be what people expect, and I hope that people enjoy the twists and turns the story takes them on.

If you had a magic wand, what would you do next?
Travel the world!

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage?
Inhale, exhale. Inhale again.

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?
Sarah, my love!

Kaitlyn Smith is pleased to be returning with On The Edge Theater Company! She is a graduate of the University of California, Irvine (Theater & Education). This is her first time doing Sound Doctoring for a show. Some favorite roles include Maria (Twelfth Night), Delightful (Dearly Departed), Lady Bracknell (the Importance of Being Earnest), and Honey the Beggar (Threepenny Opera). She is literally a clown! Thanks to my family & friends for their support, and thanks to the wonderful OTE company for this opportunity! Much love, and enjoy the show!

“I love Perla’s almost monomaniac fixation to science, as well as her passion and enthusiasm. I also love that she is intelligent and is always armed with sharp witticisms.”

alyssa-elder-pic

Alyssa Elder plays the roles of Perla Labat and Dr. Calderwood in EARBUD THEATER: ESCAPE!

What do you love about one of the characters you play? 
I love Perla’s almost monomaniac fixation to science, as well as her passion and enthusiasm.  I also love that she is intelligent and is always armed with sharp witticisms.

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?
“SLEEP!”

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?
Finding a way to connect with the other characters and bringing everything to life primarily through the voice.  It relies less on conveying the performance through the actors face, and more with connecting through the voice. It is challenging and surprisingly freeing.

What’s going to surprise people about this show?
The dualism of heart and hilarity.

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?
Romeo and Juliet or Cymbeline.

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage?
Breath, stave off potential cardiac arrest, and momentarily forget all my lines. And probably empty my bladder. Preferably before I just step out on stage.  Otherwise, that’d be inconvenient.

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?
CASEY MORIARTY you have been summoned!

Alyssa Elder is excited to join the amazing cast and crew for Earbud Theater, bringing science-fiction radio shows to life. After taking a short hiatus to work on producing, writing, and acting in her own short sci-fi film, she is happy to back on stage.  She has had the privilege of performing in various productions in theater, film, and voice over acting.  She is grateful for her friends and family who have supported her over the years, despite her persistently annoying tendency to interrogate them after the show in an effort to bolster her fragile acting ego.  Tonight will be no exception.  Some of her favorite roles include Mrs. Martin in Ionesco’s “Bald Soprano” and Darcy in the original One-Act “A New Year Me”.  She hopes to continue working with the talented people of Earbud Theater and On The Edge Theatre Productions.

“They will be helping us to create a world of life and imagination, to help simulate the complex atmospheric pressure variances that your aural detectors translate meaning from. In other words, they make irritating noises.”

Patrick Peterson returns to the Earbud Lair to play the role of Dr. Freud (no relation) in EARBUD THEATER: ESCAPE!

What do you love about the character you play?
Dr. Freud, despite not being in his own element, is completely dedicated to his new position, and works his absolute hardest to make sure that the show runs smoothly.

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?
“They will be helping us to create a world of life and imagination, to help simulate the complex atmospheric pressure variances that your aural detectors translate meaning from. In other words, they make irritating noises.”

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?
The host must be able to hold a lot of the audience’s attention for quite a bit of time. I hope I’m entertaining enough!

What’s going to surprise people about this show?
Oh, you’ll see!

If you had a magic wand, what would you do next?
Boom, SAG membership!

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage?
I tempt fate by asking myself, “What’s the worst that can happen?”

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?
Brittani Prenger, yep!

Patrick Peterson
I’m a fan of everything from Retro Sci-Fi, to Cheesy Horror; from Rod Serling, to Douglas Adams. I’m very excited to be able to work with Earbud Theater again.  At this point, I think me and writer/friend Nicholas Thurkettle can be officially considered ‘Frequent Collaborators’! For me, voice acting is so incredibly enjoyable, and our wonderful Sound Doctors will add that special layer of magic.

“The most exciting thing you did this month was buy a plant.”

ron_burgendy_pj

Paul Jasser plays the roles of Cicero Severino and Garland Labat in EARBUD THEATER: ESCAPE!

What do you love about one of the characters you play?
Garland is very approachable and interesting for me. I don’t want to give anything away by saying too much about him, but I’ll just say I think people will find him very “real.”

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?
“The most exciting thing you did this month was buy a plant.”

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?
Trying to sound like a velvet-voiced vampire without accidentally sounding like an incredibly sarcastic vampire!

What’s going to surprise people about this show?
I can’t tell you THAT! But there are definitely interesting endings to both stories, so come see them!

If you had a magic wand, what would you do next?
Enchant my clothes to wash, spot-treat, iron, and fold themselves.
Enchant my car to be nearly silent, comfortable and serene inside but to have the performance of a Formula 1 race car.
Enchant my cats to stop shedding and to meticulously clean up their own litter.

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage?
Think happy thoughts. Gotta crow, gotta fly, gotta fight.

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?
Larry Sanchez!

Paul Jasser has enjoyed theater since being exposed to Henry V at a young age. He occupies his days helping his clients, and his evenings indulging his inner story-teller by bringing his talents to stories told across a variety of venues. Earbud is definitely one of the most interesting and novel!

Stephanie Thomas has been actively involved in theatre and entertainment since an early age.  Cast member of the Emmy award winning television show Days of Brother Sun in the 70’s.  Founding cast member of the sketch comedy group Fractured Mirror performing at The Improv, Ice House and Comedy Store.  Touring murder mysteries with 3M Productions as well as interactive Shakespearean soap operas with Amuse Pictures.  Some favorite theatrical roles include Anna in the King and I, Anne Boleyn in Anne of a Thousand Days, The Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz, Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, ensemble roles in Godspell and Quilters, and Ma Strong in the Orange County Regional Premiere and OC Weekly award-wining production of Urinetown.  Stephanie loves using her voice to create pictures in the minds of the audience and listeners, and is thrilled to be a part of this Earbud Theatre production to do just that.  It should be a feast for the imagination.

 



“Both characters are fun to play! I think what I love most about them is that they are entirely on the opposite end of the spectrum from each other.”

fb_img_1476325708236

Chris Hunter plays the roles of John Maloof and Rickey in EARBUD THEATER: ESCAPE!

What do you love about the characters you play? 
Both characters are fun to play! I think what I love most about them is that they are entirely on the opposite end of the spectrum from each other. One is a successful lawyer in his 40’s and the other is vague pre-teen sidekick.

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue? 
“Why, did you make it?” – Garland. I Love a good dad joke!

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?
I am not used to bringing a character to life with just my voice. That is certainly a fun challenge for me to face but voice acting is something I’ve always wanted to try, so I am excited to see how this goes.

What’s going to surprise people about this show? 
I don’t think people will realize how real this show will get.

If you had a magic wand, what should would you do next?
I would love to be in Beauty and the Beast. As for which role, I am torn between Lumiere, The Beast and Gaston. They all would be so much fun to play!

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage? 
Breath. It’s absolutely essential!

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production? 
Every show I call out the same person and this is no different. Caitlin Schafer! Seeing her in the audience always puts a smile on my face.

Chris Hunter is an alumni with On the Edge productions. Previously he has appeared in “Twelfth Night” as Sebastian and in “Into the Woods” as  Cinderella’s Prince and the Big Bad Wolf. He is very excited to debut in his very first audio play and looks forward to many more shows with OTE.

A word with director Nicholas Thurkettle

Rehearsals have begun for EARBUD THEATER: ESCAPE!

We caught a quick moment with the director, Nicholas Thurkettle, to talk about Earbud Theater.

“Earbud Theater is a creative outlet with no comparison in my life. Casey Wolfe created it as a space where imagination reigns, and over the past few years we’ve created shows that are funny, strange, poignant, terrifying, sometimes all of those feelings in a single episode! Vocally, I’ve had the chance to play a disembodied alien hyper-intelligence, a cop getting murdered by monsters, and a Chaos God with daddy issues; and as a writer, Earbud gives me the chance to tell the kind of stories that really excite me; that use the unexpected and out-of-this-world to aim at some very real truths about human nature. “Escape” should be a terrific show – it pairs one of our most emotional and thought-provoking episodes with one of our newest and out-and-out funniest. It’s a great time to pay a visit to the Earbud Lab!”

Nicholas Thurkettle is an actor, writer, and filmmaker who loves every chance he gets to collaborate with Aurora and On the Edge. He has been writing and performing with Earbud Theater since 2014 and won an Audio Verse Award for his performance as “Cthulhu Jr.” in their episode “This Monstrous Life”. He is also writer of the upcoming animated show Children of Ether on the Crunchyroll network, and author of the acclaimed short story collection Stages of Sleep. He was a fixture for five seasons at Shakespeare Orange County, playing roles like Peter Quince in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and King Duncan in Macbeth; other favorite stage roles include Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing and Renfield in Dracula. In 2016 he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Love International Film Festival for his role in Reclaiming Friendship Park, and also appears in the upcoming indie features Cloudy with a Chance of SunshineAventura!Isla Vista: The Rock Opera, and The Revelator.
