Meet the Cast of Hansel & Gretel
|Brittany Menzies (Gretel) is happy to kick off her fourth season with Storybook in Hansel and Gretel! She just returned from a tour with Missoula Children’s Theatre performing Beauty Lou and the Country Beast. Some of her favorite SBT shows so far have been The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Little Mermaid, and Chicken Little. Outside of children’s theatre, Brittany likes recording demos, performing gigs and geocaching. Thanks to my family and all of you who bring your loved ones to the arts.
Deonn Ritchie Hunt (Mother, Witch) has been writing, teaching, directing and performing in the greater Seattle area for almost 20 years. She is thrilled be back on stage in Hansel and Gretel. Her other StoryBook Theater credits include Snow White, Goldilocks & the 3 Bears, Sleeping Beauty, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Frog Prince, Three Pigs and Rapunzel. Deonn dedicates this show to her little angels, Luke and Clara, who never fight with each other, and to her husband, Mark, who knows that she may not be telling the truth about that.
|Simon Pringle (Hansel) is very proud to be back on stage with StoryBook Theater. He trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and performs regularly at Seattle’s Taproot Theater Company. His recent television credits include Leverage and Evil in Law. Simon is also a teaching artist and Shakespeare director at Studio East.|
|Josh Ryder (Father, Brother) is thrilled to return to StoryBook Theater. Previously at SBT he’s been the Frog in The Frog Prince, the Big Bad Wolf in 3 Pigs and Geppetto in Pinocchio. Josh is a proud graduate of the University of Washington where he studied drama. When he’s not acting, Josh really likes Batman, Star Wars, riding his motorcycle, and eating ice cream.|
