CATE HAYMAN, a Bay Area Local, recently graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with her BFA in Drama. Graduating into a Pandemic, she has returned home until she can resume her plans of moving to NYC to pursue an acting career. She made her 42nd Moon debut in a virtual Cabaret back in September and is very happy to keep being asked back! She just finished a production of Songs for a New World at SF Playhouse, a fully staged and filmed show (pandemic style). It will be a process she will be talking about for a long time. Other Bay area credits include her role as Sally Bowles in Cabaret (San Francisco Playhouse) where she won both the TBA and Critics Choice award for her work. While at Carnegie Mellon, some roles included The Witch in Into the Woods, the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet, and Fraulein Kost in Cabaret. During this Pandemic, she has worked on nailing down her “B plan” (as every adult ever has urged her to do) which includes modelling, tutoring, and busking. She misses live theatre a lot, but thanks to spicy food, dogs, and extremely time consuming recipes, she is getting through it! Thanks to everyone watching this show, YOU are keeping the arts alive!!
MAUREEN MCVERRY is an almost forty-year member of Actors Equity and since her first acting job in 1981, she has appeared on almost every legitimate stage in the SF Bay Area. At the MOON, Miss McVerry has been in six productions and received TCCBA nominations for her performance in five of the six shows: No No Nannette, Pardon My English, Wildcat, High Spirits, The Student Gypsy, and Very Warm for May. Maureen was ready to begin rehearsing Pajama Game when the gosh darn PANDEMIC arrived. In 2012, Miss McVerry put her directing hat on (she has directed 25 shows) and directed the fabulous MOON production of OH KAY. In addition to working in the Bay Area, Maureen has performed in LA and NYC. Since 1993 she has written and produced an ever-evolving solo show VERRY MCVERRY. On film, she has appeared in eleven feature films, several TV movies of the week, regional and national commercials, and on FULL HOUSE (she is the Olsen twin’s teacher in the episode “Dateless in San Francisco”). A mother of two fabulous and successful adult children, she is the widow of Rick Alber and has two perfect dogs.
ANTHONY ROLLINS-MULLENS is a second-generation native San Franciscan performer of both stage and independent film for many years in the Bay Area. He enjoys many hobbies: freshwater aquarium keeping, gardening including orchids, walking, hiking, biking, beach bumming and fine tequilas. He’s only recently taken the dive into being a full-time artist so you know he has impeccable timing and a sense for danger. He’s looking forward to the future of this brave new world whatever it brings.
As a young child, his parents and grandparents were passionate about the arts and very determined to make sure that any extracurricular activities outside of school were also an important part of one’s path. So he was a member of the San Francisco Boy’s Chorus and a student at the San Francisco Ballet school. This, plus time spent in the church choir, lit the pilot light to his path. In all the many directions, it’s got to here and, wow, does he feel so blessed.
His theatrical credits include: Sheriff in the West Coast premiere of ‘Groundhog Day”, Willie in “The View Upstairs”, Admiral Boom in “Mary Poppins”, Louis in “Sunday in the Park with George”, Caractacus Potts in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”, Duppy in “Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds”, Toad in “A Year With Frog and Toad”, Louis Armstrong in “Ella, the Musical”, Tom Collins in “Rent”, Fred in “Smokey Joes Cafe”, Willie in “Master Harold…and the Boys”, Jafar in Disney’s “Aladdin”, Aslan in “Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe”, and Waymon as Hunter Priestess in the West Coast premiere of “Good Goods”.
