It's Just Sour Grapes!
Vice President and Co-Founder
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 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. Her original works have been in the 2018 FRIGID Festival (As He Likes It: A Shakesqueer Comedy), the 2017 NYNW Festival (Albert and The Dark Man; semi-finalist), the 2017 Boo! Short Play Festival (Just Gone), 2017 NY Summerfest (Sex Jokes & Murder), the 2017 Radioactive Festival (Just Gone), the 2017 FRIGID Festival (A Fifth Dimension: An Unauthorized Twilight Zone Parody; winner of Best Ensemble Piece), the 2016 UNFringed Festival (As He Likes It: A Shakesqueer Comedy), the 2016 Radioactive Festival (Timeless Beauty), and the 2016 FRIGID Festival (CSI: Mayberry – An Unauthorized Parody; winner of Best Mash-Up), all of which she has written, self-produced, directed, and acted in. When she’s not over-exerting herself with theater, she’s doing about the same with her short film projects. She is currently a member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA.
