Margie; Cocktail Waitress
Danielle doesn’t usually do this kind of thing - well, not exactly this kind of thing. When it comes to theatre, she is more at home in the pit orchestra, where she has spent plenty of time for college performances of Jekyll and Hyde, West Side Story, and Into the Woods. Her musical exploits further include formerly playing in the Quincy Park Band and Clarinet Choir in Quincy, Illinois, and singing in the University of Notre Dame Liturgical Choir, and currently performing as a musician and bard in the Society for Creative Anachronism. Danielle recently joined the Intervision family as hostess for Scintillating Stories Live. She also voices characters on both the Scintillating Stories podcast and the Popular Person Problems podcast. Danielle would like to thank you, the patrons of Lou Atwater’s Club Royale, for coming to this fine establishment tonight to immerse yourselves in this vision.
Gia La Dolce
Gia is a lifelong performer, having taken dance lessons and performed on stage from an early age. She often performed skits for family with her sisters, and later on was an active member of the drama club in high school. She teamed up with her old theater friends to put on The Fantasticks in 2010. A lover of all things vintage, especially the 1940s, she started singing jazz in her early twenties. She began modeling for a local pinup company, Temptress Fashion in 2011 and soon after became involved in the San Diego Burlesque community. As a troupe leader for The Bawdy Show, she produces and performs as well. A real triple threat of vintage proportions
Arthur “Bookworm” Wingate
Stephen Farbman began acting around the age of 7, and has been in numerous productions in various mediums throughout his nearly 31 years of life including stage, television, interactive theater, film, radio, and even video games. While acting is a passion for him, he is currently working as an educator in Los Angeles, and hopes to eventually balance his time between working as a teacher and working on passion projects, such as this production of Mickey and Worm. Other projects of his include acting in the yearly Labyrinth Masquerade Ball, where he performs consistently as one of the Main Stage goblin characters. It was in fact through this experience that he met show runners Ryan and Ghislaine. Stephen sincerely hopes that you enjoy the telling of this story, and thanks you for your support in helping to make it a reality.

Ryan would like to thank his incredible director for bring this to life, the writer for creating it, and cast for coming together through everything. I hope to work with all of you again. This performance is dedicated to his lovely wife, director and fellow producer Ghislaine.

Behind the Curtain
Ghislaine is a producer, writer, a director, a (classically trained) singer, an actress and apparently a Jill-of-all-trade.

Ghislaine would like to thank this amazing team of actors, artists, crew, family and friends that have worked so hard to make this vision a reality. Special thanks go to her talented and supported husband Ryan, who proves every day that while “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, he’s well worth waiting for!
