We are just thrilled to present our wonderful cast for The Turn. We’re happy to announce that Drammy winner Caitlin Fisher-Draeger is joining us as our Assistant Director and Effects Director. The horribly talented Richard E. Moore will once again be in charge of sound design.
We are performing in the same location as last year’s The Revenants. It should be a wonderfully creepy affair! Until then – meet our cast!
THE REFORMERS SCORE A DRAMMY!
It was Drammy night and we want to once again congratulate our wonderful Richard E. Moore on his nomination in Sound Design. Oh and hey guys look – our first Drammy! Congratulations to the enormously talented Caitlin Margo Fisher-Draeger for her well deserved Drammy in Makeup Design. For those of you didn’t know – Caitlin would show up over an hour before the actors were called to mix blood and then makeup us zombies. She is tireless and truly one of a kind. We’re so proud to have her working with us again this fall on The Turn! Our auditions are coming up next week and the amount of PHENOMENAL actors auditioning for us is truly a wonder. We’ll post our cast just as soon as we can!

Female ghost – good with movement, 30s-40s
Men and Women who are familiar with movement are encouraged to submit. Full week rehearsals begin in September. There will be a stipend provided.
Who we are: THE REFORMERS are Charmian Creagle (director), Sean Doran (playwright) and Richard E. Moore (sound design). Our guest artist is Caitlin Fisher-Draeger (co-director and design). We have done two shows over the past two years, The Possessions of la boite and last year’s thrilling The Revenants.

The Revenants by Scott T. Barsotti
The Revenants are here. What would you do for the ones you love?
The Reformers are pleased to announce the Pacific Northwest premiere of The Revenants by Scott T. Barsotti. The Revenants tells the story of two couples who hole up in a garage at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. The play will be performed in an actual garage adding to the realism and terrifying action of the play. Seating will be limited, reservations are highly recommended. It’s the perfect show to put you in the Halloween spirit.
The Revenants features Chris Murray*, Christy Bigelow, Jennifer Elkington and Sean Doran. It is directed by Charmian Creagle. Sound design is by Drammy award winner Richard E. Moore.
We are also running an Indiegogo campaign to help fund the show. Check it out!
