Clarity Leigh Welch is mega pumped to be working with Cone Man Running Productions again, this time on the stage. She just finished stage managing their world premiere of Fishing by Leighza Walker (who happens to be Clarity’s mother, making her Princess of Obsidian Art Space). Clarity attended Sam HoustonState University, majoring in Theatre (and flip cup). Her most recent credit is Big Head Productions’ latest showcase, NSFW: The Office Plays; but her favorite roles have been Lucy in The Beggar’s Opera, Marcy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Ruth in Blithe Spirit. When she’s not living in Obsidian, Clarity spends a lot of time at home wrangling sassy teens, writing novels she’ll never finish, spending too many late night hours on the internet and wishing life was more like Harry Potter. Thanks go to her mama Leighza, daddy Ricky, and her siblings of terror: Chloé, Cassidy and Rider.

As far as the bio, what is there to say. I was born and raised in Houston, graduated from Cy-Fair H.S. Studied Theatre at Blinn College and Sam Houston before going to Texas Tech to receive my BA in Communications. I enjoy playing golf and guitar. I have two rescue dogs, Kovic and Sullivan. I have been in numerous College and Community Theatre productions since being introduced to acting in my late teens. I am a member of Theta Chi Fraternity and played lacrosse at Sam. Used to be an avid cyclist and have been to the Tour de France 6x, along with all the Spring Classics. Other than that, not sure what to say.

Julio Alonzo is an actor, writer & producer with a background mostly in film. He is associated with production companies Ludisian Legion Entertainment LLC and Dream.Work.Conquer Films out of Dallas, TX which both are known for producing brilliant commercials, music videos and short films. He started his acting experience 4 years ago and has never looked back since. He recently moved back to Houston to work on a screenplay and is very excited to be part of the Viral Infection production as his first theatrical play.

Jackie is over the crazy Monty Python moon to be in Viral Infection! Jackie was last seen in the Office Spaces and And I feel Fine Shorts at the Obsidian. Other acting credits include two Museum of Dysfunctions for Mildred's Umbrella, Romeo and Juliet at Upstage Theatre, Merry Wives of Windsor, Act of Imagination, andEverything in the Garden ( Houston Press Award for Best Supporting Actress 2012) at Theatre Southwest, Incorruptible, and Harvey at COM, and Dancing at Lughnasa at Unity Theater.Jackie trained at Mountview Theatre School in London, England, spending several years in children's theatre touring across the UK. Special thanks to the Maxman.
