Pam Gerard/Ellie Young (Abigail Trageser)
Abby is so excited to be a part of her first production with TKD! She is so thankful to be back on stage after almost 2 years of no theatre (we don't know how she made it this long, but nevertheless we are proud of her). She has many people the thank: family, friends, cast, director, you know the drill. Enjoy the show!

Bobby Holland, Lloyd Penny (Bill Howard)
Bill Howard (Bobby, Lloyd) is, as always, delighted to be back on the TKD stage, "Office Hours” being his 20th show (he thinks). Bill’s last appearance was in April ‘21 as Estragon in “Waiting For Godot.” He has dozens of other stage and TV credits. Off stage, Bill’s wide interests include reading, writing, exercising, and following the Vols. He wishes to thank Windie for the opportunity, his talented cast-mates, and, above all, TKD’s wonderfully loyal patrons. Enjoy the show!!
Rhonda Penny (Jan Brown)
Jan Brown is thrilled to play Rhonda. Although she has been to TKD several times, it is her first time on this stage. Jan and her husband live in Loudon but they spent over 20 years in Tampa, FL. Jan was Dinah in Dixie Swim Club, and Domina in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Locally Jan was Jinx in the Tellico Village production of Savannah Sippin’ Society. During the day, she is a teacher’s aid at LES. She is excited to work with such talented people on and off the TKD stage.

Tristan Brown is delighted about this opportunity to be back at TKD. Some of his credits that he is most proud of are his roles of Jack in Lord of the Flies, John in Dark of the Moon, and Dr. Montague in The Haunting of Hill House. He would like to thank his friends and family for the encouragement and their unwavering support, as well as Windie for allowing him the opportunity.
