Sometimes we are all vampires.
Sometimes we are all victims.
Often, it depends on who's around.
Liz Mistele as Don
Liz is amped to rock out with her sock
out in her first show at The Alchemist Theatre!
Mistele has had the honor of performing many amazing productions with Off the Wall Theatre, Windfall Theatre, Soulstice Theatre, The Boulevard Theatre, Greendale Community Theatre, and personal favorite Sunset Playhouse’s "Bug in a Rug" Children’s Theatre.
Favorite roles include; Chicklet in "Psycho Beach Party" (Off The Wall Theatre), Madame Arcati in "Blithe Spirit" (Soulstice Theatre), and Petra in "A Little Night Music" (Windfall Theatre).
She is eager to dive headfirst into the world of Don; full of music, manipulation, chaos, toxicity, and love.
Natasha Mortazavi as Stoli
Natasha is all revved up and
ready to go for her first official Alchemist show!
While her most critically acclaimed role was a horse in "Cannibal: The Musical," she has been lucky enough to appear in the Milwaukee area on many stages, courtyards, park bandshells, and more in such favorite roles as Gloria in "Boeing Boeing" (Sunset Playhouse), Nadine in "Wild Party" (Off the Wall Theatre) and Viola in "Twelfth Night" (Theater Red/Unrehearsed Shakespeare).
She is full of trepidation and excitement about exploring the dark, twisted mind of Stoli and what happens when two people's inner demons lock on and won't let go.
Michael Christopher as Chuck
Michael is psyched to be
back onstage at the Alchemist after writing and directing "The Flesh
Trade" in August.
Earlier this year he also appeared in "Dick Pix Montana," and first made the acquaintance of the Alchemist crew while serving as writer/musical director for "Lobotomy: the Musical!"
While never donning the leather jacket/mohawk/spikes punk rock Halloween costume, Michael has had a fascination with punk stuff ever since his dubbed Dookie tape paved the way for Rancid, Operation Ivy, and the Clash - no one seemed to appreciate his London Calling t-shirt and bondage pants on “clash” day during homecoming week in high school.
To this day, he can’t shake the image of Sid Vicious shooting up Johnny Ramone’s puke as recounted in “Please Kill Me,” and his obsession with punk’s lurid antiheroes drew him to “Punk Is Dead” like so many moths to a streetlight in the Bowery.
