Transcript of Gallery

BIOS

Brook North (Playwright) is an actor/writer/director/filmmaker, more or less in that order. As a writer, his short plays have been rejected by theatre festivals across the country. They have also, occasionally, been produced, including an evening of his short plays titled “This Doesn’t End Well” in January of 2019.

Byron Jennings II (Actor, CAMERON) is thrilled to be working with Artist Soapbox! Previous credits include Coalhouse Walker, Jr. in NC State’s production of “Ragtime,” Henry Drummond in Justice Theatre Project’s production of “Inherit the Wind,” Othello in Bare Theatre’s production of “Othello” and a recent appearance in “Until the Flood,” a one-man show produced by Burning Coal Theatre. Thank you to all who support local theater!

Gus Allen (Actor, MATTY) is a local actor and acting instructor at Back-to-One Acting Studios in Raleigh. His favorite role to date is Clown #1 in The 39 Steps at NCSU, and he hopes someday to plug in a USB cord the right way on the first try. Thank you to YOU for supporting arts of all kinds.

Rachel Klem (Director) (she/her) has been a theatre artist in the Durham/ Chapel Hill/ Raleigh area since 2001. She ran Common Ground Theatre for 10 years and taught and directed at NC State’s University Theatre for 15. Rachel has only recently started learning about the wonderfulness of audio drama and really enjoys the collaborative process that it allows.

Griffin James (Production Manager) (they/he) is a writer, theatre maker, and a graduate from NC State University. Griffin was involved with NCSU Theatre as an actor, stage manager, director, and playwright. They are incredibly excited to have had the opportunity to work with Artist Soapbox as well as the many talented artists involved with this project. When not bouncing between projects, Griffin can be found drinking coffee or doting over a cat.

Jasmine Hunjan (Sound Designer) is a freelance sound designer working remotely around North Carolina. She is passionate and enthusiastic about working in audio and enjoys collaborating with others whenever possible. A self-proclaimed “daydreamer,” Jasmine enjoys writing, reading and has even put out her own music. Jasmine is completing her last year at Appalachian State University as a Music Industry Studies major with a concentration in both recording & production and marketing & promotion and looks forward to pursuing a career in audio engineering and post production.
