Bryn Tanner

Bryn has been part of the Albino Squirrel family since its creation, mainly because he created it! He’s very excited to bring back two of his favorite theatre experiences and make new friends and memories in the process. He owes all of his success to the love and support of his family and friends, including his wife Aimee. Despite writing two Nintendo shows, he’s a Sega kid at heart (we had the superior Aladdin), and his favorite video game is Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Thomas Nelson

Hello! My name is Thomas D. Nelson, and this is my first show with Albino Squirrel Productions. Some previous shows of mine include Death Note: The Musical (L), Catch’em (James), These Shining Lives (Tom), and You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (Linus). I am also currently in a production of Layton (Descole) at Big Blue Theatre ( performing this June!

Mandi Trandem

Mandi is excited to be back on stage after an unintentionally long break from theatre. An avid gamer since she was young, she's excited to be brining one of her favorites to the stage with such a wonderful and talented cast! She'd like to thank her family and friends for encouraging her to perform again and her fiancé for his constant love and support.

Anna LaPacz

Anna is excited to be on stage again for the first time in over 4 years! Offstage, she is a stay at home mom to her one year old son. She would like to thank all involved in this production for being awesome to work with- could not have chosen a better group of people for her return to the stage. And of course, her wonderful husband Aaron for his unwavering support <3

Andy Freeman

Andy's first introduction to Albino Squirrel Productions was seeing the original "Link: The Hero of Fringe" in 2019, since then he has appeared as The Judge in both Turnabout Musical: Phoenix Wright Productions and Various Roles in "The Complete Works of Troy McClure Abridged". Admittedly having very little knowledge of Mario and Zelda, Andy is confident that he will both help you laugh and feel inspired. When he's not acting, Andy can be found strumming on his ukulele, playing games with family & friends, or walking with his loving dog, Olly.

Brittany Wallerich

Vasaaq! I am overjoyed that my first show back on stage is full of nerds and laughter. This has been such an incredible opportunity to meld two of my favorite hobbies together: theatre and fantasy worlds. Thank you to the team for setting up these two ridiculous adventures. Enjoy the show!
