mario

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?
I think it would be all the studying before hand. Definitely looking at how I would like to play the role compared to how the character fits in and trying to blend it all together.

How is this production bringing something new to this story?
I think there are interesting hints at fresh and different takes on relationships between characters now that some of the male roles have been cast with females. It brings an interesting twist to what the characters mean to each other.

How is this character like you? Different?
I think he has a confidence about him that is similar to me, but he is too hotheaded… which I don’t believe I am … yet.

What do you love about this character?
How iconic this character is. How he just changes the whole course of the play because of how hotheaded he is. Small character, huge key factor! Leaves a lasting impression with very few appearances.

What do you hate about this character?
I hate that he dies so early! Imagine what more mischief could have happened!

What’s the biggest challenge about taking on this role?
The biggest challenge I think I faced early on was the kind of impression I wanted to give with every entrance and exit. I want people to know what this character is all about before he even talks. Which was also interesting since I’m using a voice I have never used before for this character.

Besides yourself, what celebrity would you like to see tackle this character?
Nicholas Hoult!

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?
“What? Drawn and talk of peace! I hate the word”

If you could play any other character in this show, who would it be?
Definitely Sampson… he is such a hidden comedy gem! I would love to try and get this role next time.

When did you first perform?
It was in high school! After a leg injury playing basketball I decided to take what I thought would be an easy class to get through. But fell in love when I was shockingly cast as the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.

Besides this one, what’s your favorite stage show?
Othello. My dream role is Iago.

What do you do when you’re not doing theatre?
Reading Scripts, playing video games, and basketball.

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?
I would like to tackle Petruchio in Taming of the Shrew.

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage?
I try to go through all of the emotional breaths I take. My method of acting definitely depends on my breath. I try to breath how I naturally would depending on my emotional situation, since we all breathe differently depending on our moods.

Mario Arciniega is an East Los Angeles actor who has many experiences performing Shakespeare with characters like Benedick, Demetrius, and Lucio under his belt. Taking many Shakespeare and Improv classes he hopes to one day perform at the Shakespeare Oregon Festival and Griffith Park. Mario would like to take thank his Mom and Dad for pushing him to keep going, his brother Thomas for always setting the bar to which he hopes to achieve, and Alexis Tapia for always being there to run lines and encouraging him to do better.

“I love that we have Spanish translations of the text throughout the play…” Kaitlyn Smith

Headshot Kaitlyn Smith

Kaitlyn Smith plays Mercutio in OTE’s Romeo and Juliet opening July 28 at the Laguna Hills Community Center.

How is this production bringing something new to this story?
I love that we have Spanish translations of the text throughout the play. With the setting and historical context we have, I think it enhances the text and enables the actors using it to play and have fun in a new way.

Call someone out by name who must come see this production? 
EMMERY!

What do you love about this character?
Mercutio has a lot of freedom to play with other characters and the language. She is not restricted to one family and she is able to get away with almost anything due to her relation to the Prince. She is very verbose and gives her opinions whether people want to hear or not, which is extremely fun to play within interactions with the other characters.

What’s the biggest challenge about taking on this role?
Mercutio is one of the most iconic characters in Shakespeare. It’s been challenging to take on a role that many people have their own ideas about and not leaning too hard on other performances I’ve seen. I’ve been working on making it my own while remaining true to the director’s vision.

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue? “Thou hast most kindly hit it!”

If you could play any other character in this show, who would it be?
I’ve always wanted to play Tybalt! He has some intensely fun insults for other character and some awesome fight scenes.

When did you first perform? In 4th grade we did a musical called “A is for Aesop”. I joined choir halfway through the year just so I could be in the show and I ended up with a pretty fun part. I remember hamming it up at 10 years old.

What do you do when you’re not doing theatre? Working mostly, traveling when I can, and generally clowning around!

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next? “Noises Off”! I’ve always wanted to be in that show!

Kaitlyn Smith is excited to return to this season of OTE’s Shakespeare in the Hills! She is a graduate of the University of California, Irvine with Honors in Acting. Previous favorite appearances include On the Edge Theater Production’s Twelfth Night (Maria), University of California’s the Importance of Being Earnest (Lady Bracknell) and Threepenny Opera (Honey the Beggar), Shakespeare by the Sea’s Much Ado About Nothing (Ursula/Hugh Oatcake), and Orange County High School of the Art’s Dearly Departed (Delightful). She is literally a clown in her spare time. Thanks to the amazing Aurora Culver for this opportunity, and thanks to her family and friends for their constant love and support.

“So when you put it (ROMEO AND JULIET) on you have to … be able to bring something to it that’ll make it fresh and entertaining.” Shannon Dodson

shannon

Shannon Dodson plays “Sampson/Sophia” in Shakespeare in the Hills, Romeo and Juliet. Opening July 28 at the Laguna Hills Community Center

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?     The language makes all Shakespeare inherently challenging, for actors as well as for the audience. I think the challenge with Romeo & Juliet in particular is that it is such a well-known piece. Everyone comes to it with some sort of idea already in their mind, either from reading it in school or just absorbing it from the zeitgeist. So when you put it on you have to have that in mind, and be able to bring something to it that’ll make it fresh and entertaining.

What’s going to surprise people about this show?  How bad my Spanish is. JK literally no one will be surprised by that.

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?  Hey Harry Styles, you’ve got some free time before your tour starts, right?

What do you love about this character? I love that Sampson/Sophia is all gusto and bravado and swagger but hightails it to the hills when someone actually takes her up on it. Fake it til you make it and someone calls you out on it amirite???

Besides yourself, what celebrity would you like to see tackle this character?  Andrew Rannells

If you could play any other character in this show, who would it be?  Mercutio! But Kaitlyn’s got that one handled right now.

Besides this one, what’s your favorite stage show?  The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Stephen Adley Guirgis

What do you do when you’re not doing theatre?  I mean, in my perfect life I would spend most of my waking hours doing theater, buuuuut right now I have to work a day job. When I’m not at rehearsals, though, I love going to museums and art galleries, I love trying new restaurants with friends, I love going to see other people do theater, and I love watching the Angels.

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage?  Take a deep breath and ignore my sudden and spontaneous need to pee.

Shannon Dodson can think of no better way to spend a summer than doing Shakespeare in the Park and no better people to do it with than her pals at On The Edge. She was previously seen in OTE’s Twelfth Night as Olivia and Macbethas the Third Witch. Other favorite credits include A Piece of My Heart (Whitney), Tom Jones (Honour), The Diviners (Jennie Mae), and Little Women (Jo).

“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.”

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.”

13920852_1067323543354024_5184090870191030679_n

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?
