NOAH SIMON makes his TAP debut. He most recently appeared in A Trick of the Light at Peninsula Players, where he was previously seen in the world premiere of Joe Foust’s Once A Ponzi Time. 2019 is Noah’s 30th year as a theatre artist, having spent the majority of that time on many of Chicago’s illustrious stages large and small. He is a proud member of both Actors Equity Association and the Screen Actors Guild/AFTRA, and holds a BA in Theatre from Butler University and an MFA in Acting from the Theatre School at DePaul University. Noah teaches Theatre at UW-Green Bay.
ALAN KOPISCHKE recently directed Julius Caesar for UW-Green Bay, where he teaches acting. Alan’s many TAP credits include Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol, Oleanna, and A Walk in the Woods. He has also acted with Steppenwolf, Milwaukee Rep, Peninsula Players, Theatre Z, and regional theatres across the country, including the American Conservatory Theater where he earned his MFA. He has been smacked around by the Chuck Norris family and a real highway patrolman on primetime television and in feature films. He produces the Door Kinetic Arts Festival every June at Björklunden and has created new arts programs in communities around Wisconsin.
