Kiersten Farris (Lucia) is so excited to be playing Lucia (formerly Lucius) in her second show at SCCT.

She is thrilled to be back on the SCCT stage.

When she isn’t working as an executive coach, she loves spending time with her four grandchildren.

Trey Inferrera (Servant/Young Cato/Claudius/Dardanius) is an 8th grader at West Middle School. He caught the acting bug a year ago during Emily Kees’ spring break acting workshop. Since then, he has participated in six more theatre education classes through the SCCT Academy. This is Trey’s first production at SCCT. He also plays bass and acoustic guitar.

Erica Lamb (Calpurnia) is thrilled to make her Shelby County Community Theatre debut.  She has recently been seen in Curtains (Jane Settler) at Clarksville Little Theatre, The Game’s Afoot (Daria Chase) at Little Colonel Playhouse, and Steel Magnolias (Ouiser) at Taylorsville School of the Arts.  Erica earned a B.F.A. in Acting from the University of West Florida.

Nathan Milliner (Mark Antony) is an illustrator, writer and film director who has in recent years made Shelbyville, KY his home. Born and raised in Louisville, he has found yet another home at SCCT having made his stage debut as Mr. Hyde in 2023’s production of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Nathan will be co-directing Ebenezer this holiday season and is honored to play Mark Antony here, under Dr. Wann’s guidance.

Lethia Nall (Cassius) is humbled to have the chance to inhabit this role, a true agent of chaos for the ages. Other work with SCCT incudes: Doubt, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Talking With…, and As You Like it.  A huge thank you to her husband and kiddos and love to Barry Katz, who will be missed.

Clint Nowicke (Cinna/Messenger/Clitus): This is Clint’s first show with SCCT.  He has performed with multiple theater groups throughout Louisville and Southern Indiana, in addition to films.  When not involved in community theater, Clint is a psychologist for Norton Children’s Medical group.

Shelly Marquart Reid (Titinius, Cobbler) is excited to be making her Shelby County Community Theatre mainstage debut in Julius Caesar. She has appeared upstairs at SCCT in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (2023), Talking With (2021) and Tartuffe (2019). A native of Louisville, Shelly has trod the boards at many of the area’s community theaters. “I feel so fortunate,” she says, “to be working with such a talented cast and dedicated crew.”

John Richeson (Marullus/Publius) comes with some theater experience in his youth and appeared in the SCCT production of The Robber Bridegroom in the 1980’s. Now returning to Kentucky, he is thrilled to find community theater still thriving in Shelby County. He has been taking advantage of the Adult Acting Classes offered by the theater, and also participated in the recent productions of As You Like It, Jekyll and Hyde and Waiting for Godot.

Marty Rosen (Brutus) is honored to work with Dr. Jack Wann, our excellent backstage crew, and all the noble (or perhaps less noble) Romans in this enduring dramatic masterpiece. And he is grateful to all those whose support and leadership make SCCT’s work possible. Marty was last seen on the SCCT stage in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Josh Salisbury (Blacksmith/Servant) is delighted to be returning to the SCCT stage. This is his second time appearing in a SCCT production, the first being 2022’s Frankenstein. Josh is eternally grateful to his beautiful and brilliant wife and his two sweet, silly, sensational kids for their abiding love, patience, support and encouragement.

Michael Schmid (Carpenter/Popilius Lena/Lepidus) is honored to make his SCCT stage debut in this timeless classic with Dr. Jack Wann.  Previous credits include Cowboys and Idiots (Zeke O’Malley) and Arsenic and Old Lace (Teddy Brewster) at LCP, as well as All My Passions (Hamilton R. Bennett) and The Kiss Me Curse (Waddy Peytona) at HAC. Michael has a BA in Theatre from Indiana University and would like to thank Lisa for her constant support.

Allen Schuler (Julius Caesar):  A retired high school English teacher, Allen finds some irony in the fact that he often had his students perform scenes from this play and now, years later, he’s doing the same.  Since his retirement, Allen has been “acting up” in various community theaters. He particularly enjoys working with SCCT and was most recently seen here playing Simon Stimson in Our Town.

Brooke Spatol (Octavius) is excited to be doing yet another Shakespeare! When she isn’t on stage, Brooke is teaching 7th grade Language Arts at Spencer County Middle School. Brooke would like to thank her family and friends for always supporting her.

Megan Stout (Artemidorus/Varro/Volumnius) is a country singer/songwriter from Taylorsville. After making her theatre debut last summer in 9 to 5 The Musical (Doralee Rhodes) and then Elf The Musical (Deb), she wanted to dive deeper into acting and knew Shakespeare would be a good challenge. You can listen to her songs, recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, on all streaming platforms.

Reggie Van Stockum (Soothsayer) has appeared as Marcus Lycus in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Judge Omar Gaffney in Harvey, Froggy LeSueur in The Foreigner, Thomas Putman in The Crucible, Mr. Gower in It’s A Wonderful Life, Carlson in Of Mice and Men, Col. Mustard in Clue: The Musical,  Ralphie Parker (Narrator) in A Christmas Story, Fezziwig in Ebenezer!, Inspector Rough in Gaslight, and Spud Loomis in Jubilee Barndance. He is delighted to be working again with Dr. Jack Wann, The Bard, and this talented cast of Shakespearian actors!
