|Tom Camacho (Matthew)
is elated to be a part of Private Eyes, his second production at the
Stage Center Theatre. Along with acting and working toward his master’s
degree in the Department of Communication, Media & Theatre, he is

and art based education. Along with being the Grants Manager for the

|Heather Irwin (Lisa) is pleased to be returning to NEIU for Private Eyes. Her first NEIU production was Thymely Theatre’s The Lady’s Not for Burning
(Jennette). A native of Pittsburgh, PA, Heather has worked with
different theatre companies in the Northeast and the Midwest. Recent
production credits include The Long Christmas Ride Home (Rebecca), Fat
Men in Skirts (Phyllis), and Noises Off (Brooke). Heather has also
toured nationally with the Hampstead Stage Company. She’d like to thank
her family and friends, fellow cast members, crew, and Bill for all the
laughs. And much love goes out to her wonderful husband, David.
|Andrew Berlien (Adrian) makes his triumphant, if belated, return to the Stage Center Theatre this season, after his memorable turns in Lend Me A Tenor in 2003 and The Real Inspector Hound
in 2004. He is also the recipient of the 2003 Rebecca Ashley Thatcher
Award for Excellence in Dramatics. A native son of his beloved City of
Big Shoulders, Andrew has bided his time lurking in the dangerous,
murky, enticing waters of professional musicianship, and is delighted
to once again take the stage with such a wonderful and dynamic cast. He
would like to thank everyone involved with this production for the
opportunity to shine. Oh, and Mom, Dad, all my loved ones...My shoes
hurt for you too.
|Caitlin Costello (Cory)
is a recent graduate of the one year classical acting program at the
London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA). Since returning to
the States, she lived briefly in NYC before settling back in the
Midwest. She received her undergraduate degree from DePaul University,
where she majored in English and Theatre Arts. Favorite roles include
Silvia in Two Gentlemen of Verona (last year) and Anne in Anne of
Green Gables (11 years ago). When she is not on stage, she keeps busy
working at a women’s health non-profit and at a bar in Wrigleville. She
likes a good beer and eats the rejected yellow Starbursts because it
makes her feel heroic.
|Jim Farrell (Frank)
returns to performing after three decades in business and raising a
family. Originally from Washington DC, Jim received his start on stage
at the Trapier Theater on the campus of the National Cathedral. From
the spring of 1972 until August 1976, he performed in 13 plays and
musicals including a world premier of John Updike’s Buchanan Dying. He
performed roles like Biff in Death of a Salesman and Thomas
Jefferson in 1776. With a new perspective, nothing to lose, and years
of life experience to draw from, Jim returns to acting hopefully a
little wiser, a bit more humble, and open to opportunities to
contribute to the performing arts community in Chicago. Jim lives in
Chicago and is a business development manager for a construction
