CAST

Kamaria Hallums-Harris

Racine

Kamaria Hallums-Harris is from Greer, South Carolina. It is in South Carolina where she originally discovered her love for the theater. Kamaria attended South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities for her last two years of high school as a drama student. It was then that she decided that Seattle was the place for her to be during this time of her life. Kamaria is now a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts with a degree in Original Works, and she could not be happier with where this journey has led her thus far and where it will continue to take her. Kamaria’s most recent credits are Neverwhere (Cornish Playhouse), Milk Like Sugar (Theatre Battery), A Christmas Carol (ACT), Mwindo Understudy (SCT), Waning (Annex), Barbecue (Intiman), and Behold the Dreamers (Book-It) . She would like to thank the special gems in her life that have made this moment in history possible.

Maya Burton

Anaia

Maya Burton is overjoyed to take on this epic story with WET. Some companies she has worked with include Seattle Children’s Theater, Taproot Theatre, The 5th Avenue Theatre and Off-Road Shakespeare Company. Be sure to catch the newest version of her and Lexi Chipman’s original play series Raisins in a Glass of Milk. Raisins looks closely at what it means to be an Artist of Color by going directly to the source and weaving candid interviews into a radically honest one-act play. Coming to ACTLab, March 2020.

Charles Antoni

Riley

Charles is an Ohio native who’s been in Washington for a little over a year. Having graduated with his BFA in performance in 2017 he planned to move to ATL, but his visit to the PNW for a month became extended and he’s glad for it. After making his debut in the Seattle theater scene as Dez in the ArtsWest production of Skeleton Crew, Charles has now been seen in SCT’s Ghosted as Andre, and as the Sea Captain in Seattle Shakespeare Company’s, Shakespeare in the Park. Aside from acting, Charles is also a musician and a photographer.

Tré Scott

Scotch

PCPA graduate, and current Cornish College senior, Tré is proud to be making his Washington Theatre Ensemble debut. Tré is an Oakland, California transplant and was last seen in Seattle Shakespeare’s Wooden O production of Twelfth Night. This fall you can see him put on a site specific production of Tarell Alvin McCraney‘s The Brothers Size alongside his Young Hot Thespian collective.

Laura Steele

She/Angie

Laura is very excited to be making her debut with Washington Ensemble Theatre. Laura has studied with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and studied for a summer in London with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She has been seen in You Can’t Take It With You and One Man, Two Guvnors with Sound Theatre Company, Hamlet, and most recently, The Arsonists with The Horse in Motion. Many thanks and much love to my mom for her love, support, and guidance through this journey.

Brace Evans

Hall/Man

Brace is excited to perform the roles of Hall and Man. The dynamic of opposites presented in loss and revenge is thrilling. To allow RAGE to exist, be seen, and explored for black people in America is rarely tolerated, which comes from how inculcated, subtlety or direct, it is embedded in our constitution, our nations history, and ourselves.
