Ken Ashford Lyndal

 has performed and directed in the Triad of North Carolina and New York for nearly two decades. After several years in the musical department of Samuel French, Ken entered NYU School of Law. He now earns a respectable living in an unrespectable profession (law), gravitating frequently to the theatrical arts in order to cleanse his incredibly tainted soul. Favorite past shows include Noises Off (Selsdon), Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical (Mr. Greenfelt), The Nerd (Rick) and Gilligan’s Island: The Musical (Skipper). Favorite future shows include: Sordid Lives and The Great American Trailer Park Musical at Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance and Rounding Third at the Open Space Café Theatre. Thanks to Joe for this wonderful opportunity to visit a favorite character.

Lynn Dyer The Lady

 is from Eden, NC; her acting credits include the biblical characters Prophetess Anna, Sarah, Queen Esther, Mary the Mother of Jesus and many others. She has also performed in community theaters in North Carolina and is thankful to be back with Open Space Café Theater to perform in Nebula of Georgia. Lynn will be appearing again at OSCT in June in her dream role of Miss Daisy in Driving Miss Daisy.

Cheryl Ann Roberts Stage Manager

 as an actress has appeared with Open Space Café Theatre, the Paramount Acting Company, CTG, Kernersville Little Theatre (where she is VP of Volunteer Relations), Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance, The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem, Stained Glass Playhouse, Clemmons Community Theatre and Davie Theatre Company. She has done commercial and voice-over work for Paragon Advertising. When not acting, she’s just as comfortable stage managing productions; The King & I, Annie, and Honk are among her favorites. Cheryl Ann works for Southeastern Theatre Conference, helping other actors pursue their dreams.

Joe Nierle Playwright/Director

 the Artistic Director of OSCT previously lived and worked in educational, community, and professional theatre in the New York area. He began writing plays after receiving a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Grant. He has directed over sixty productions and as an actor has appeared on stage as Sam in Lips Together, Teeth Apart, Ned Weeks in The Normal Heart, Roy Cohn in Angels In America Part I, and Norman in The Boys Next Door, to name a few. The Nebula of Georgia received a professional staged reading at The Abingdon Theatre, NY and premiered at OSCT in Greensboro, NC last year.
