Smedley Hooper (Announcer) is making his triumphant return to the Stage Center Theatre, having previously appeared here as Lane in The Importance of Being Earnest.
He is descended from a long line of actors most of whom could be found
at one time or another gathering in uneven and ill-organized crowds
outside the Cock and Bull Tavern waiting for their manager. He is
indebted to Mr. Wirth for taking the foolhardy risk of rescuing Mr.
Hooper from a long-deserved obscurity in an alley off Michigan Avenue
to play in this production. Also, Hello Caitlin!
Stephanie Wyatt (Sabina) has been living in Chicago for a year and a half and done several Stage Center Productions including:The Birthday Party, Finding the Sun, and The Heidi Chronicles.
Playing the role of Sabina is a definite delight. I would like to
thank my friends and family for without their unquestionable support my
career would not be possible. MOST of all of would like to thank my
fiancé Brandon Jones without whose love my life would be empty,
I cannot wait to marry you. I love you.
Wendy Silva (Mrs, Margaret Antrobus) is glad to be appearing in The Skin of Our Teeth. She is currently appearing in the Children’s Theatre Workshop production of Wiley and the Hairy Man. She is grateful for the opportunity to work with such a talented cast and director.
