Chris has had a lengthy performing career, including local, regional, and Off-Off Broadway productions. She was in the original cast of Nightlife on the Mojave, which was called "A brilliant performance, quickly hazed over by a hail of styrofoam props," or something. She was also in the New Jersey premiere of The Phantom of the Opera - no, not that one. In addition to acting, she was the lead singer in several 80's cover bands, which involved more drama than most REAL 80's bands. Since working with SGP, she has been heavily involved with both on-stage roles, as well as behind-the-scenes work, including publicity, costuming, and direction. Chris currently holds a Doctorate in Education, so she is formally referred to as Dr. Chrissy, B.A., M.A., Ed.D., CPM. Try to remember all of that, please.

Genny has been involved with theater and the arts since she was in the 6th grade. One of the first plays she was ever in was William Shakespeare's Tempest when she was 12 years old, in which she played Trinculo. She worked for the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival for three years, and won several acting (and a few directing!) awards during her high school career. She was selected as one of 12 high school students to take place in the 2008 West Virginia Governor's School for the Arts in their theater department, and she was one of 6 students to serve on the 2009/2010 WV State Thespian Festival's Student Board. As soon as she graduated high school, she decided to start applying for acting jobs in NY, even though she lived about 8 hours away. After about a year of successfully getting work in the New York acting field, she moved into Brooklyn, and has been there ever since. It seems to be working out so far, excluding her sketchy neighborhood. Since her time living in New York, she has directed eight plays, four of which she has written, three of which have been produced by SGP in several New York playwriting festivals. She is currently a member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA. For more information, visit www.GennyYosco.com
