Catherine (Danielle DiBianco) watches as Hal (Michael Slas) and Claire (Linnea Carrera) try and decide if she is a genius or something worse.
Catherine (Danielle DiBianco) gets comfort from her father (Ken Craig) on the evening before his funeral
(Catherine) is a graduate of Northeastern Illinois University. She is
currently studying classical piano and teaching ballet at NEIU.
Danielle would like to thank Bill McIntosh for giving her this
wonderful opportunity of working with such talented individuals. She
would also like to thank Anna Antaramian and Ellen O’Keefe for their
words of wisdom and encouragement.
(Claire) is currently a student at Northeastern Illinois University,
where she is majoring in Communication, Media and Theatre. She was most
recently seen in the Center Stage production Simply Maria
as Carmen, and as a member of InFusion in the studio series of
Backwardly Mobile. She is currently working with ¡Salsation!
Theatre Company, and can be seen in their upcoming production The Fanta
Menace at the Gallery Mextli in Pilsen. When not at school or working
she likes to geek out over Jane Austen and Harry Potter. And when she’s
not doing that, she’s working on her music, piano and vocal, even
occasional composition. She is excited for the production and wants to
thank the cast, crew and the Director for making this such a wonderful
experience. She would like to send a huge shout out to all her friends
and family for their support and love.
(Robert) is thrilled to be returning to the stage after a two year
absence during which time he pursued film and commercial work. Look for
him as General Eli Cooper in the film Dog Jack scheduled to premier in
a couple of months. He was last seen right here at Stage Center playing
Dodge in Buried Child. Other
credits include Nathan Jessep in A Few Good Men, Dave Moss in Glengarry
Glen Ross, Phil in Hospitality Suite and Andy in Love Letters. Nothing
replaces the magic, excitement and sheer exhilaration of live theater
and this production is no exception. A special thanks to director Bill
McIntosh, and the cast and crew for your passion and hard work to make
this happen. Love you Babe, thanks for believing in me. Enjoy the show!!
(Hal) the youngest, but by no means the most immature member of the
cast, has been acting for almost 5 years. Not just one show, but
several over the years. Previous roles include a Floridian Mobster, a
13-year old wise man, and an ambiguously gay survivor. He would like to
thank his parents for giving him talent, and all the people who wanted
to see this geek transform into an even bigger geek. Mike is extremely
pleased to be working with a cast of this caliber and hopes that you
enjoy the show as much as he does.
