Kevin Theis

Kevin has been an actor, director, writer and theatrical producer in Chicago for more than 20 years (though he says it seems like yesterday). He has performed at, among others, the Goodman Theatre, Next Theatre, Peninsula Players, CT20 Ensemble (where he served as Artistic Director) and Seanachai Theatre (where he is an ensemble member).

As a director, Kevin has staged productions for Seanachai, CT20, the Oak Park Festival Theatre, City Lit, Lifeline Theatre and many more, and has been nominated for three Joseph Jefferson Awards for his directing work. He also appeared in the film “Just Visiting,” but don’t watch it. It is truly an awful movie.

His previously published works include adaptations of Thomas Heywood’s “Fair Maid of the West” and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Sign of the Four” (the latter in conjunction with Shanghai Low Theatricals). Both titles are available through Dramatic Publishing.

Kevin is a Cancer and his turnoffs include people who talk during movies and frogs.

Ron Fox

Ron is an actor, writer, and stunt performer living in Orlando, Florida. His work in entertainment has taken him all over the world.

As a film actor, he has appeared in a number of movies, including “The Monkey’s Paw,” “Christian Soldiers,” “The Living and the Dying, Extreme Force,” and “Radio Personality.” Some of his film projects, it must be remarked, serve well for drinking games.

As a writer, he is the author of “Oaken Rings,” the first in a series. It is an epic tale of historical fantasy fiction, published in 2008. He has also authored several scripts for theater and film (some of which have been stage read or produced), and hundreds of sonnets written in the style of Shakespeare (which have not).

Ron’s theatrical appearances include “The Tempest” (directed by Stephen Jenn, RSC - Old Vic), “The Sign of the Lizard” (directed by Robert Whitehead) with Griswold Theatre, “Richard III” with the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival, and the title roles in both “Hamlet” and “Cyrano de Bergerac” at the Florida Renaissance Festival.

He frequently reflects, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, that he fell into stunt work. Some of this work can be seen in “Ace Ventura 3,” “Burn Notice,” “2 Fast 2 Furious,” “Robodoc,” and “Fear Fighters.” He has also served as director and stunt coordinator on a variety of film and television projects. He is a proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA.

Mssr. Fox is both fond of and puzzled by the art of Haiku. He is a big fan of animal rescue work, and not so big a fan of people who cannot disconnect and insist on texting and updating their statuses while in a movie theater. Please — put your phone down and enjoy the show.
