Andy Cahoon

ANDY CAHOON (Isaac) Andy Cahoon could not be more appreciative for the opportunity of being on stage with Stray Cat for the first time. Six years ago, Andy graduated from the University of Arizona with a BA in Theatre Arts and Philosophy. After extensive guidance and planning with Randy Messersmith and Maren Maclean, he set out to work with all the major theater companies in Phoenix. This production marks the completion of that goal, for which he is extremely grateful. Andy is currently a substitute teacher for Mesa Public Schools, with the thought that one day he may pursue teaching drama. His previous credits include: Seminar (Actors Theatre), Robin Hood (Childsplay), Our Town (Phoenix Theatre), Equivocation (Southwest Shakespeare), and more recently A Midsummer Night's Dream (Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival). Lastly, he wants to thank Mary for her active love and support

Cathy Dresbach

CATHY DRESBACH (Paige) Cathy has been a long-time audience member at Stray Cat, and is elated to finally make it onstage. She was previously directed by brilliant Ron May in boom and A View of the Harbor - both at Actors Theatre of Phoenix. She most recently performed in Phoenix Theatre’s Twist Your Dickens and with Arizona Theatre Company as Camilla in King Charles III. Her play, 3 No Trump, was produced at Theater Works last January. By day, Ms. Dresbach works as a commercial voice talent and is represented by the Leighton Agency. She and her husband, Art, live in Phoenix with a variety of critters - including 2 stray cats.

Gary David Keast

GARY DAVID KEAST (Arnold) Gary is happy to have the opportunity to take on the role of Arnold in this production. Gary is a former stroke victim, though his disability only affected vocabulary use, which was much easier to recover from than that of Arnold's experience.  Gary is relieved to admit that he sees life through a much different lens than that of pre-stroke Arnold.  Gary grew up in Iowa, expanded his acting skills in Minnesota, and moved to Phoenix in 2013.  Up until now, his acting experience in the valley has been mainly associated with Southwest Shakespeare Company, where he has performed in King John, King Lear, As You Like It, Spellbound!, Othello, The Comedy of Errors, and Hamlet. Gary is very fortunate to be married to the fabulous and talented Katie Hae Leo.

KJ WILLIAMS

KJ WILLIAMS (Max) Kelsey "KJ" Williams is beyond excited to take on the role of Max Connor. As a member and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, KJ finds a lot of similarities with Max. This is KJ's first production with Stray Cat Theatre. Other stage credits include: Claire in Rumors, Dr. Bradley in The Man Who Came to Dinner, Essie Carmichael in You Can't Take it with You and Directing Chinamen at Arizona State One Act Festival.
