came from New Mexico to Chicago to spread a little sunshine and pursue an acting career! Before coming to Chicago to intern with Prop Thtr, she studied performance and directing at Fort Lewis College- alongside cast-mate Chloe Speshock. She is most proud of winning awards for Best Actress at film festivals in Nice, Amsterdam, and Albuquerque. Right now she is trying to grow some plants and is focused on dancing in her kitchen whenever possible.

Originally from Phoenix Arizona where he went to school for theater performance and acting for TV and film; moving to Chicago in 2011, Lee-Michael took improv classes and voice over for improvisers beginning and advanced at Second city.

Paul Brennan @paulwilliambrennan
has been performing since 1958, changing his identity in 1994 from the name Telly Savalas, and moved to Chicago in 2015, joining Prop Thtr a year later. While looking for a new family, he saw the Uploose Odditorium had applications for another black sheep, and he fit right in. In his spare time, he makes short films, one of which has been shown in Austin, TX, Poland, Romania, and Prop Thtr! He also sings, shimmies, writes therapeutic poetry, plays a therapeutic tin whistle, feeds his cat, and writes film criticism (and criticism of things in general). He’s not very good at making bouillabaisse, though. He'd like to thank every misfit in this gang for loving him just the way he is, after the extensive makeover.
