Cast Bios

The growing cast for our 2013 Series of Unfortunate Entertainment concert series:

Note: The following performers have performed with us before, but we still need many more performers to fill roles in our next season! Please audition for us January 28 and join us!

Mario Arruda – Mario has been too busy learning the ropes at NYMMT to write a bio, but he will soon! NYMMT audiences saw him play the Thief and the Reporter in See What I Wanna See. Mario will also be featured in Weird Romance.

Robin Boyd – Robin Boyd, one of our emcees, is the graphic designer and a major creative presence and support behind NYMMT. She is thrilled to make her NYMMT on-stage debut in these concerts!

Ross Boyd – Ross Boyd is proud of his rhinoceros, and is the audio engineer for the series. He is also a board member of NYMMT. He performs in Nine Unknown and Tuna Fish Discrepancy, his rock quartet with tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Jocelyn Duford – Jocelyn Duford has her B.A. in Theater from Dartmouth College with a concentration in acting and sound design. She is actively involved in theater in Southern NH and hopes to continue to expand her acting and singing career while pursuing interests in education and animal rescue.

Jamie Feinberg -Jamie wrote too many of these bios, but otherwise her life is pretty amazing right now. I mean really, just look at this cast!

Tom Holmes – Tom Holmes might as well be NYMMT’s resident drummer. At the end of 2012, he had played for all 16 performances by NYMMT. Crazy, no?

Joel Iwaskiewicz – We’re thrilled to have the very talented Joel joining us for this series. He’s recently been seen in Next to Normal with the Acting Loft and will be in Bat Boy with New Thalian Players.

Sarah Murai – Sarah is super. And super-talented. And she did not write this.

Elliot Robert Owens – Elliot is very excited to be making his Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater debut, having grown bored with performing in shows your mom would love.  He loves quirky musical theater, shameless plugs (Spiral Circus – New England’s Premier Party Band @!!!) and, of course, Sheree Owens. Editor’s note: in our 2013 season, Elliot will be co-emceeing!

Sheree Owens – Sheree is excited to be participating in A Series of Unfortunate Entertainment.  She studied Musical Theatre at Dean College in Franklin, MA.  After college, she got involved in the animal care industry and is currently a manager at Pembroke Animal Hospital.  She also enjoys singing with the rock cover band Spiral Circus.

Katelyn Parker – Katelyn Parker joins NYMMT for the first time in this concert series, but she’s been seen all over NH in a variety of roles. She also has created a few cabaret fundraisers for Relay for Life.

Becky Rush – Becky Rush has two passions in life: teaching and theatre. She lives alone with her cat Chispa. Don’t judge.

Dave Ostrowski – Dave Ostrowski recently made his professional acting debut (besides NYMMT, of course) in Hackmatack’s production of Oklahoma. Dave played Martin Van Buren in BBAJ and will playing the Husband/the CPA in See What I Wanna See. He is the best resource for good Audience Choice selections.

Deb Shaw – Deborah Shaw is very active in S. NH theatre as an actor, director, producer, publicist, and technical designer. She has been recognized as a finalist many times by the NH Theatre Awards, winning individual awards for her directing and acting, as well as being the director and set designer of the best productions of 2008 and 2009. Ms. Shaw has chosen 2012 as the year to return her focus to one of her strongest passions: music.

Joey T. – Being something of a flop musical geek, Joey has been in heaven performing in this concert series. Previous roles include John Quincy Adams in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Hunter in [title of show], Tateh in Ragtime, and Sancho in Man of LaMancha. Joey has been nominated for several NH Theatre Awards and is a graduate of the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC.

Anja Parish Ward – Anja has been with NYMMT from the beginning, as a board member, actress, and stellar lighting designer. Since then she’s been featured in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and has bravely taken on a variety of accents for this concert series.
