Meet the Cast of The Ugly Duckling
|Shoshauna Mohlman (Ugly Duckling) is thrilled to be cast in another fabulous StoryBook Theater show! When she’s not on stage playing a Fairy, a Duck or a Mama Bear, she’s at home playing Mama to her own children, directing young actors at Heatherwood Middle School, or singing Christmas Carols with The Dickens Carolers. Working with and performing for children is one of her great passions…it is such a gift! A big THANK YOU to her family who continues to support her while she pursues her dreams. Enjoy the show!|
|Sierra Kagen (Dixie/Cat) is a proud alumna of many Studio East programs, including mainstage productions and YAPI. Training: Circle in the Square summer acting program; BA – Theater Arts and Italian Studies from Brandeis University. She is thrilled to now be a member of the teaching and directing staff at Studio East. Past StoryBook productions: Goldilocks (Papa Bear); Snow White (Huntsman/Dorfs), and Cinderella(Forsythia).|
|Deanna Sarkar (Donna/Farmer’s Child) has appeared as 17 different characters for StoryBook Theater over the years, and she is happy to be part of The Ugly Duckling. You may also recognize her face or voice from various local commercials (Tulalip Casino, Subaru, Magic Mirror, Providence Cancer Care) or locally made films such as Rogue Saints, In the Company of Women, and Shift Paradigm. When not on stage or screen, Deanna plays violin and cares for two active Shiba Inu (dogs), and narrates audiobooks for the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library.|
|Sarah Russell (Mama/Hen) is excited to be returning to the StoryBook stage. Favorite SBT shows include Chicken Little, The Little Mermaid, and The Frog Prince. Sarah has performed all over the Seattle area with theaters such as the 5th Avenue Theatre, Village Theatre, Second Story Repertory, and Seattle Musical Theater.|
|Andrew Murray (Farmer/Aunt Augusta) feels like a luckyduck to be able to play with his StoryBook family so often! Having just finished playing the Prince in Cinderella, in past seasons you may have
caught him in Chicken Little (Cocky Locky/Foxy Loxy) or Snow White (Stuffy/Shaky/Stinky/Prince). Past favorite projects in the Seattle area include Forever Plaid (Sparky), Rent (Mark) at Second Story Repertory, and The Music Man at the 5th Avenue Theatre. Many many thanks to Sue, Lani, and Liz: this simply couldn’t happen without all of their hard work and love.
