Louis R. Petrucci (or Lou, to most) is no stranger to Cassidy Theatre. With a BFA in Drama from New York University, Lou is part of Cassidy's office staff by day - by night, he often wears a multitude of hats: From stage-management (BIG, Bonnie & Clyde, Private Lives, 9 to 5) to props mastery (Plaid Tidings, Annie, Broadway Bound, Lend Me a Tenor, Bonnie & Clyde, The 39 Steps), assistant-directing (Damn Yankees), performing (Lend Me a Tenor, Damn Yankees, Broadway Bound, Barefoot in the Park), and finally making his directorial debut earlier this year with The 39 Steps. Lou is VERY excited to be getting back to business with the arts and theater world, and quite thrilled he's getting to stretch his improv legs again for the first time since his travels with 'Musical Mysteries & More', a Pittsburgh based company that he served as a cast member and company manager with for nearly two years. When asked about this project, Lou said: "This has to be one of the finest groups of names I've ever seen on paper - and I've read album liners for 'The Beatles.' Even better, they're all mad as hatters. This is going to be a LOT of fun."

Mia Radabaugh is delighted to finally be back on stage with some very talented people to hopefully make you laugh and forget your troubles for a day. You may remember her on this stage in 2019 in Lend Me a Tenor (Maria). Some of her other favorite roles include Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf (Martha), Emma (Miss Bates) , and Tartuffe (Elmire). She has performed all over northeast Ohio, most notably at Western Reserve Playhouse, Ensemble Theatre, and Rubber City Theatre. Her improv background began at Case Nueva Cantina in Athens, OH on Thursday nights in the late 90s. She also has taught improv workshops to schools and companies looking to spark creativity. As always she would like to thank her mom, husband and friends for always supporting her.
