Meet the cast backstage.
This is Adam M. Overberg who plays Mr. Suit, the lead role in The Samaritan Syndrome. He wants to be the next Dr. Who, but right now will settle for touring the Chicago Storefront & Fringe theatre scene performing in back to back shows in 2013.
This is Megan Merrill. She plays Night Nurse and costume designed the show. She continuously graciously smiles every time someone says to her "hello nurse" even when it gets old, because, let's face it, she looks FANTASTIC in her nurse costume. She will also melt your heart through a sensitive hardness with this character. Megan is also a writer, dancer, freelance Russian/English translator, model, and a member of Dream Theatre Company. She would love to be a lingerie designer. (She's also an amazing mom and cook!)
This is the vivacious Kristi Parker-Barnhart. She is one of the three in the rotating cast of Patients that play Saint, Ada and Grace. Here she is made up and ready to play Grace. She hails from Oklahoma and meets and exceeds the stereotype of southern charm. Her enthusiasm and character have made her a wonderful addition to this ensemble.
This is Dana Von. She helped with pretty much everything in this production including making some props and even understudying the role of Saint. She always helps us see when we are all taking ourselves too seriously and also helps us all bring out the inner children within us.
Glad you could meet us backstage, now see the show onstage now through June 30!
