They wish to thank the creative team and cast of Tam Lin and Other Journeys for a rewarding and fun process.
Michael Donnay (Stage Manager) is a stage and production manager based in Washington, DC with experience spanning theatre, new work development, live events, and international work. From performing as a sentient newt to designing lighting for Hillary Clinton, he constantly relies on his Georgetown experience to better support the artists he works with.

Thanks to the team for rewarding and generative rehearsal process.
Michaela Farrell (Sir Patrick Spens) is an artist and storyteller based in Brooklyn, New York by way of New Jersey. Michaela graduated from Georgetown University in 2018, where she first got exposed to theater in a play called Sonder, written and devised by Mar Cox (oh, how the world turns). Currently, Michaela writes, directs, and performs with her theater family, The New York Neo-Futurists - they keep her busy. Additionally, Michaela is a puppeteer and alumnus of the Eugene O'Neill National Puppetry Conference. Her puppet collaborative, "The Out of Work Puppeteers", was formed over quarantine as a safe haven for soft-core escapism, misfit puppets, and their lost puppeteers.

Caitlin Frazier (The Ferry King) This is Caitlin's first show with the Georgetown Theater Alliance. She is so happy to have gotten to meet and work with so many talented Georgetown students, past and present. It was truly inspiring.
Lisette Gabrielle (Janet) is a 2017 Georgetown Alum living in Washington, DC. She majored in Psychology and Theatre Performance Studies while at her time on the hilltop. Although the pandemic put a slow on all things performing arts, she has immersed herself in Zoom Theatre doing virtual plays such as Abortion Road Trip, The Importance of Being Earnest, Hamlet and Georgetown's BTE Student Show 'Sunbath.' She is super excited and grateful to be reunited with Georgetown Theatre alums to keep on creating together.
Nora Genster (The Fairy Queen) is very happy to return to Georgetown theater alongside friends and faces old and new. While at Georgetown, Nora was a member of Mask and Bauble and enjoyed roles both onstage and behind as an actor, producer, designer and board member. She spent 5 years in DC post graduation and has recently returned to Seattle.
Caleb Lewis (Raven Margaret) is a member of the Georgetown Class of ‘16 and a recent graduate from the American Conservatory Theater’s MFA program in acting. Credits include the role of Thomas in ACT’s production of A Christmas Carol and Monty in the original workshop production of Both your Houses by Susan Soon He Stanton. He is happy to be working with the Georgetown theater community again along with some familiar faces and some new ones.
Kellan Oelkers (Tam Lin) would like to thank GTA and the Tam Lin team for making the post-grad blues a little more bearable.
Taylor Rasmussen (Playwright) graduated from Georgetown in 2016, where they served on the board of the Black Theatre Ensemble and enjoyed working with the TPST department, Mask & Bauble, and NomadicTheatre. Taylor received their MFA in Professional Acting from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in Bristol, England in 2017. They worked as a professional actor in New York City for three years, acting extensively in classical works and in shows intended for young audiences, and are a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Association. Taylor will be pursuing their MBA at Vanderbilt University's Owen School of Management beginning this fall, and has been named a Class of 2023 Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) Fellow. This one’s for all of the Tam Lins and all of the Janets out there - hold each other, even if it seems scary. Thanks, as ever, to the gents and the ’rents; it’s been one hell of a year, and I don’t know where I’d be without you.
Thomas Shuman (The Mortal King) is really happy to be a part of this virtual gathering of brilliant people. He is currently in New York City studying acting at the Stella Adler Studio's 3-Year Conservatory program and looks forward to graduating in 2022, which seems a world away from this one. He recently played Rosalind in the Conservatory's production of As You Like It and has filled the year without live performances by practicing guitar, cooking many new recipes, and writing poetry and short plays of his own. He hopes this beautiful show in a month of Pride makes any queer folks watching feel a little more joy and community, even through a screen.
Joshua Street (Willie of Winsbury) currently works in risk management but is always happy and excited to return to the theatre. He'd like to thank his fellow cast and crew members for their work and opportunity to slip back into his love of acting with such a dynamic, dedicated and talented group of people.
Hannah Walker (Raven Brand) she/her/hers, graduated from the College in 2012, where she majored in English and experienced a much gnarlier New South living situation. She currently resides by the beach in Asbury Park, NJ, and is the Institutional Marketing Manager for Two River Theater. Over the wild course of Covid-19 she’s supported many Two River Theater virtual performances backstage (backscreen?), and appeared in The Cherry Orchard. A Leo sun and moon, she fills her non-theater time with baking, running, reading, attempting to sample every non-alcoholic beer on the market, and trying to figure out what to do with all the unicorn-themed tchotchkes people keep giving her, for reasons unknown.
