Bio’s:
Robert has played on the boards in Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, Eugene and a few points in betwen. Mr.Ambrose has appeared in National Commercials for Dell Computer, Bud Lite and most recently,Geiko (not the cave man). He also had the opportunity to work with Director Tim Hill on Garfield 2 and Alvin and the Chipmunks for on-set “shooting” voices(way to much fun). Robert would like to thank Michael Monks for his skillful eye as a Director and our positive disagreements and Elena for asking me to play Richard . Lets go for a ride !
Elena Beuca – (was born in Romania- Transilvania and came to America three years ago to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood. She fell in love with acting and the whether in Los Angels and decided to establish here. She owes everything to God, family, amazing friends and her acting teachers: Rebecca Kitt, and Ivanna Chubuck – who alwayes push her to get better. And more important- thank you Michael Monks- it’s been a pleasure to work with you and this great cast.
Nora Feels so blessed to have the opportunity to work on this production of “The Baby Dance” Directed by her mentor and Michael Monks. She would like to Thank her Mother, Sister Katie and Mary for making the journey all the way down from Northern California to watch her acting debut.
Dave likes playing rugby and late night tap dancing. He likes cooking for his girlfriend, as long as she doesn’t complain. Mr Rogers worked on the floor on the N.Y.S.E. for eight years, felt the shaking quake of the economy and decided to move to a more stable, secure career in acting. Resulting in a family intervention with their psychologist on Dave’s “not so strong choices”, Mr Rogers is known for doing whatever it takes to prove them wrong. He would like to thank Elena Beuca and his teachers Michael Monks and Ben Davis for assisting him in this quest.
