You’ve waited long enough! Time to unveil the creative team that will bring you the unique world of Mr. Kolpert!
First, let’s meet the director. You know him, you love him, you’ve seen his masterful work – Mr. Kolpert is being helmed by our own Artistic Director Scott Yarbrough. He will be assisted by a member of this year’s Mentership company, Alan Cline. This is just one of the many ways that our Mentorship company members have an opportunity to both learn and actively contribute to Third Rail!
Dialect Coach: Company Member Stephanie Gaslin, who has performed on stage and has coached our dialects countless times.
Lighting Designer: Company Member Jennifer Lin, who is not only a lighting designer, but also quite recently – a new mother!
Production Manager: Company Member Kristeen Willis Crosser, who excels at essentially all of the jobs that are needed to make a show happen.
Costume Designer: Emily Horton, who we are happy to have designing for us again, after numerous shows, such as Static and Noises Off.
Dramaturgs: Brian Myers and Ellen Walkley, who have each worked on shows over the past couple of seasons, but joyfully join forces to try to untangle the complex Mr. Kolpert.
Props Master: Charlotte Wallis, who we thankfully met as part of the Stage Crew on The Realistic Joneses and now we’re never letting her go!
Scenic Designer: Larry Larsen, who has designed sets all over town, including Third Rail’s A Bright New Boise.
Stage Manager: Kelly Cullom, who is a widely experienced Stage Manager and recently directed Theatre Vertigo’s The Drunken City.
Company Member Stephanie Gaslin (Edith), who you may remember as our Dialect Coach from earlier in this blog post. It has been a few years and we are thrilled to have her back on our stage.
Company Member Rolland Walsh (Ralf), who has performed with us many times, most recently in Static and The Night Alive.
Leif Norby (Bastian), who we welcome back with open arms after his roles with us in The Mystery of Irma Vep and his Drammy-winning turn in Grace.
Kelly Godell (Sarah), who is becoming a familiar face at Third Rail after her roles in Static and Noises Off.
Chip Sherman (The Pizza Man) who makes his Third Rail debut with Mr. Kolpert!
This is a fantastic team tackling a wild, darkly funny play. We cannot wait to show you their creation!
