 Crew Who's Who 

  • Maren Lethbridge head shot

    Maren Lethbridge

    Director/Set Design

    Maren Lethbridge was voted class comedian in her senior year of high school. She fully takes credit for every moment that makes you laugh in the show. If you don’t laugh, feel free to request a one woman version in which Maren will be playing all the parts. Maren’s favorite moment of the show is when it ends, and applauds you for making it that far. Truthfully, Maren thinks this show is hilarious, and has been cracking herself up this entire process. Her wish is that you leave the show with a smile on your face, and remembering who made it all possible: her.

  • Rilyn Gardner-Nicoll head shot

    Rilyn Gardner-Nicoll


    Rilyn Gardner-Nicoll is a San Diego native who wishes every day to be back on the beach. Her senior year of high school, she was voted “Most Likely To Be Famous” and is looking forward to disappointing everyone, including her mother who wants her to be famous more than she does. She would like to thank Maren for bringing out the inner child in all of the actors which stressed Rilyn out the entire rehearsal process but makes for a great show. And though she cannot really dance, Rilyn is grateful for the actors who have interpreted her chaotic jabbering and frantic thoughts so beautifully. Now, enjoy the show. My actors didn’t sweat this much in rehearsals to not be adored.

  • Kiley Todd Drake head shot

    Kiley Todd Drake

    Music Director

    Kiley Todd Drake grew up wanting to be a world-renowned pop star and was voted in high school “Most Likely to be on The Voice”. She has since done neither and enjoys auditioning for community theatre productions instead. Her favorite foods include ketchup, ranch, and Dr. Pepper and she spends most of her spare time with her two best friends: her husband and her four-year-old niece. Although a BFA musical theatre major, Kiley has enjoyed stepping out of the spotlight to be the music director of Spelling Bee and thoroughly enjoys yelling at people who are off-pitch. That being said, Kiley has kindly volunteered to be the understudy for the entire cast, so heaven forbid you might even see her onstage tonight.
