Meet the Cast

Jessica Kayrouz Ray

Jessica is grateful to be part of another production at TheatreWorks. She started singing on stage at ten and fell in love with sharing the joy of theatre instantly. She is proud to call herself one of Chris’ “kids” from the Floyd Central Theatre Program. Jessica also enjoys singing in studio, at her church and ending the evenings with a lullaby to her amazing kids Emma and Olivia.  She would like to thank her husband and family for their encouragement and support. 

Greg Wood

Greg Wood is excited to be appearing in TheatreWorks of Southern Indiana’s Halloween Cabaret—Eat Drink and Be Scary!  TheatreWorks audiences may remember Greg as The Duke in last season’s production of Big River.  In addition to TheaterWorks, Greg has been seen onstage with a number of local companies over the years including the Kentucky Opera, Music Theater Louisville, Centerstage, Clarksville Little Theater, Mind’s Eye Theater and others. When not on stage, Greg serves as a cantor/section leader at the Cathedral of the Assumption Church in Louisville and works full time as the Manager of Research & Analytics for the Kentucky Lottery.  Greg is very grateful for the opportunity to share the stage with this talented group of performers.  Much love to Natalie, Haley, & Gabrielle and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!   

Paul Stiller

Paul is excited to make his TheatreWorks stage debut. Paul has a Bachelor of Arts in Music, so as you can imagine, his relationship with music is probably somewhat unhealthy at best. Paul enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife and fabulous daughter. They are a loud bundle of energy and joy. In the rare event of some free time, he also likes to attempt to play golf. In addition to music related activities, Paul will sometimes venture over into theatre productions. For example, this show you are at, and various other shows in the past with various local theatre companies. 

Carrie Chastain

Carrie is excited to be making her TheatreWorks debut.  She has also worked with Clarksville Little Theatre, As Yet Unnamed Theatre Company, Wayward Actors, and Mind's Eye Theatre Company.  Some of her favorite roles include Sara Jane Moore in Assassins, Miss Hannigan in Annie, Chris Gorman in Rumors, The Drowsy Chaperone in The Drowsy Chaperone, Agnes in The Shadow Box, and Miss Pennywise in Urinetown.  If she's not onstage she can sometimes be found fixing wigs or working in the light booth.  Much love to her husband, Jason.  For Bryce. 

Jess Harris Stiller

Jess Harris Stiller is so excited to be appearing in her first TheaterWorks production! Jess is a graduate of Campbellsville University where she double majored in the incredibly lucrative fields of Theatre and English. Her favorite roles include Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors, Veronica in Heathers,  Vivienne in Legally Blonde, and Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie. Jess was most recently onstage in Clarksville Little Theater’s production of The Drowsy Chaperone as Trix the Aviatrix. By day, she is the front office coordinator at a local staffing agency. Jess and her husband Paul (yes, the one in the show) have a 10 month old daughter, so when they are not doing theater, working, or taking care of her they are mostly sleeping.  

Annette Robinson

Annette has been in rock and country bands in her past but this is her first Cabaret and hopes it won’t be her last. She loves the fun and variety of the music and dance along with the friends she has made. Her past roles at TheatreWorks include Widow Douglas in Big River and the Mother in An Old-Fashioned Christmas. Some of her favorite roles include the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Marguerite in Dearly Departed. The fun she is having tonight is for her Dad, who was her biggest fan.

David Neal

David, more commonly referred to as Mrs. Neal’s husband, is humbled to be a part of such an amazing group of performers. He has sang in various bands and worship teams throughout Southern Indiana since his teenage years. He and his wife of 26 years, the aforementioned Melissa, live in Floyds Knobs. They have two awesome kids, Emmalee, a senior in college and Nelson, a senior at Floyd Central. David has worked in the insurance industry for over 20 years. He currently underwrites high risk properties and liabilities. His favorite thing that performing has taught him is summarized in a quote from the late Keith Green, “If somebody writes a great poem, people don't run around applauding the pencil, saying 'Oh, what a great pencil'...I'm a pencil in God's hands.”

Hannegan Roseberry

Hannegan is the theatre director at Community Montessori Public Charter School and has a degree in Musical Theatre Performance from Ball State. She finds theatre to be one of life’s greatest creative outlets. When she is not running around with her sons, she is busy performing and/or musical directing with the local theatre community, and specifically with Theatreworks of Southern Indiana, which launches its second season in June 2018. Hannegan lives with her husband, Jason, her three sons, and her three tiny dogs in a historic home in downtown New Albany.
