Press Release (ePRNews.com) - GLENDALE, Ariz. - Feb 13, 2017 - Brandon Sanchez was born from immigrant parents, “who,” he said, “wanted to give their children the best chance at life. For them, being born an American citizen was what could allow the chance for that because America is the land of opportunity.”
Zachary Arnold is a college student pursuing his major in Theatre. Favorite roles include “Spirit” in Nonfat Soy Peppermint Mocha Latte..with Sprinkles, for which he recently received the Broadway World Award for Best Actor in a Play (Non-Professional), Something Something Snetsky in Fools.
Jaren Navenma is a resident theatre-maker. He has performed, written, and directed mainly with Brelby Theatre Company. His recent writing credits include Last Minute andTawa’s Rising. As an actor, he has been seen as Lennox in Macbeth, Laurie in Little Women: The Musical, and Player in Postcards from the Apocalypse.
Sanchez discovered theater in high school where his first performance was playing the role of Boq in the Wizard of Oz. His first experience out of high school was with Brelby in The Oz Chronicles.
“The thing about Malik,” said Sanchez, “is that he is a thinker. He thinks and cares yet never seems to truly be able to save those he cares about, yet he tries to logic and think his way out of what can be considered a very stressful situation.”
“Judd is Emma’s little brother who is very naïve,” Arnold explained. “He grew up only knowing this dystopian world yet still remains kind and caring.”
“Runt is a border line psychopath/sociopath,” Navenma said. “He thrives in the world which the play is written due to his aggressive tendencies and conviction to his beliefs.”
“This show dives into a world where the utmost depth of a persons beliefs and character are tested,” Navenma remarked. “It makes you think and shows the true value of art in the world and in each individuals’ creativity.”
