We are so happy to have had the chance to speak with two of our brilliant actors in Paper City Phoenix. Read on to learn a bit about them and why you should see this fantastic show! SCTympanic: What’s your name and who are you in Paper City Phoenix?

Stevie: I’m Stevie Chaddock and I play Brenna aka Tower Girl.

Tympanic: What drew you to the script?

Stevie: Female superhero. That's pretty much all I needed.

Tympanic: If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Why?

Stevie: I'd love to be able to generate peanut butter out of thin air. That way I'd never be without peanut butter.

Tympanic: How would you communicate with others if social media didn't exist?

Stevie: Even with social media, I prefer face-to-face communication so I guess I'd just stick with that. 

Tympanic: Why should people see Paper City Phoenix?

Stevie: It's awesome. And who doesn't love superheroes?

 

Andrew Bailes - HeadshotTympanic: What’s your name and who are you in Paper City Phoenix?

Andrew: I’m Andrew Bailes and I play Paul, the manic pixie dream dude.

Tympanic: What drew you to the script?

Andrew: I absolutely love each character's desperate desire for connection in a dystopian world where that basic human need is so tragically scarce. Although the subject material is pretty heavy, this play approaches it in a surprisingly lighthearted tone that is refreshingly romantic. It's stellar.

Tympanic: If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Why?

Andrew: The power of healing, and to turn paper into bacon pineapple pizza. A superhero who heals the sick and feeds the hungry with a culinary masterpiece like that sounds pretty amazing to me.

Tympanic: How would you communicate with others if social media didn't exist?

Andrew: I've always been a fan of close conversations over cold beers in sunlit bars, with the jukebox playing Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in the background.

Tympanic: Why should people see Paper City Phoenix?

Andrew: The play is an apocalyptic science fiction romantic comedy... I'm struggling to find another genre as radical as that!
