Rachel Faria (Director)
Rachel Faria is going into her senior year pursuing her Musical Theatre Degree and Dance minor at the University of Northern Colorado. Living in Washington for more than half her life, Rachel has worked with Village Theatre for nearly 5 years, appearing in productions such as AIDA (Amonasro), Sister Act (Deloris Van Cartier), Rent (Maureen Johnson), and most recently working as the Assistant Director for last summer’s virtual Summer Independent production of Tuck Everlasting. Ever since her freshman year of college, Rachel has been ever eager to step into the work behind the scenes and is so thrilled to have been granted this opportunity through KIDSTAGE.
Tracy Anderson (Choreographer)
Tracy Anderson is beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to tell this moving story. She is currently studying Musical Theatre at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City and thrilled to be back after assistant choreographing last summer’s KIDSTAGE production of Tuck Everlasting. Tracy feels incredibly passionate about the power of storytelling through movement and encouraging everybody to be more confident in their dancing, regardless of when you started. Her roots in dance come from contemporary improvisation. It is an absolute blessing to be working with a creative team that she has watched grow as artists and humans, we are feeling beyond empowered to bring the arts back into our community.
Rhyonna Rosales (Music Director)
Rhyonna Rosales, a third-year Music Education major at Pacific Lutheran University, is ecstatic to be a part of not only her first production at Village Theatre, but her first production as a music director. Rhyonna has been a piano and vocal student for nearly sixteen years and has been involved in choral and theater programs since the age of eleven. During her time at PLU, she has sung in University Singers and University Chorale, as well as played piano for the University Jazz Ensemble. Above all else, Rhyonna’s passion for music and collaboration has prevailed over the most difficult of circumstances, and she is so thrilled to embark on this new journey as a part of Spitfire Grill‘s brilliant creative team.
