Caroline Ryker (Glory)
Caroline Ryker is an attorney working in the Indianapolis area. She enjoys spending time with her spouse, family, and two dogs. When she was younger, she first began to engage with theater through school and church. She is newer to the theater as an adult and has enjoyed working on this play.
Allison Hermann (Hope/Gayle)
Allison is thrilled to be playing Gayle and Hope in Almost Maine! Allison has also played Woodstock in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, Andrina in The Little Mermaid, and Laura in Just the Truth. When not on stage, Allison teaches first grade and loves snuggling her cats. She would like to thank her family and friends for always supporting her. Enjoy the show!
Amelie Thibodeau (Ginette)
This is Amelie’s debut with the Cat Theater. Amelie has performed in several productions with CYT and The Point Theater including Junie B Jones, and Frozen Junior. She also enjoys teaching and taking dance at The Ballet Studio of Carmel.
Brian Thibodeau (Phil/Dave)
Brian hasn’t performed in a proper play since his senior year of high school when he played Sky Masterson in Guys & Dolls. He couldn’t be more grateful to be acting on stage again and plans to pursue acting more regularly. Behind the scenes, Brian runs an advertising and branding agency in downtown Carmel.
Hannah Vaught (Sandrine)
Hannah Vaught is a freshman at ZCHS. She loves gymnastics, shopping, and baking. Her favorite role was Aquata in The Little Mermaid at the CAT. She would like to thank her friends, especially her best friends Ashley and Tatiana, for supporting her in whatever path she takes.
Emma Leary (Marvalyn/Rhonda)
Emma works as a middle school teacher in Brownsburg and is a graduate of Ball State. This may be Emma's debut show at the Cat, but she has adored Almost, Maine for close to a decade, first as an audience member like you. Since then, she has performed and studied the show a handful of times, and even got the opportunity to attend a workshop with the playwright, John Cariani. Emma wants to give a special shout out to her friends Tristan, Therese, and Elaine for getting her involved at the Cat. Enjoy the show!
Jake Williams (Chad/East)
Jake (They/Them) has had a very varied past with the CAT. They started as the music director for their 2020 production of Disney's Descendants and have done everything to being the puppeteer for Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors. They started acting playing as Sean Browne in Just the Truth and most recently played Uncle Fester in The Addams Family. Jake is very excited for the roles they get to perform as in Almost Maine and is excited to work with such a great group of people.
Malcolm Marshall (Steve/Randy)
Although Marshall has traveled to Thailand, spoke in front of the senior class at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology, and worked as a process engineer and patent agent, the thought of being in a play terrifies him! However, Marshall is always willing to take on a new challenge. Marshall is both nervous and excited about his debut! When Marshall isn't working or on stage he enjoys playing the saxophone, participating in martial arts, traveling, and learning foreign languages.
Tim West (Jimmy/Man/Pete)
Tim is very excited to be apart of the incredible cast of Almost Maine! This will be his third show here at The CAT, his first being You're a Good Man Charlie Brown as Pigpen, and The Addams Family as Lucas Beineke. He want's to thank his family and friends for coming out to support him, and he hopes you all enjoy the show!
Deanna Larkin (Waitress/Marci)
Hello, my name is Deanna and I never wanted to be on stage. This was a total midwinter blues impulse, but it was a good one. During the day I'm a nerdy pharmacist, who for fun goes on adventures mountain biking, hiking, and SPENGA-ing. I'm so happy I followed through on this impulse because I've found a wonderful community who is so encouraging of me taking this risk.
Brandt Ryan (Lendall)
Brandt Ryan received an MFA in Fiction from FlU in Miami. His thesis included a one-act play which he was very grateful to have had the opportunity to direct and stage here at The Cat in 2021. Having since moved away and then back again, he was eager to re-join the theatre community and reached out to The Cat for guidance. Used to being behind the camera as opposed to in front of it, and having excellent skills as an usher, he showed up thinking he'd be passing out forms and moving chairs around. Instead, he found himself accepting a role in Almost, Maine. And that, he believes, is what community theatre is all about: opportunities to be received and opportunities to help others. This will be his first time on stage.
