Meet Our Actors
Duke Orsino, Malvolio
Adaline is an actor and designer from Tacoma, WA. They are so excited to perform in their first Shakespeare production, and their first outdoor show! They graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in 2022 with a Studio Arts BA and Theatre Minor. Recent acting credits include Protagonist from Work in Progress (Miranda's Cafe, PLU), Ensemble in The Laramie Project (PLU Alpha Psi Omega), and Inspector Talbot in Twisted Tales of Poe (PLU). They also love designing for shows, and have recently designed props for She Kills Monsters (PLU) and set for Sagittarius Ponderosa (PLU). They would like to thank their parents and their partner Hanne for all the support throughout this rehearsal process.
Juliette Jones (Viola) is delighted to take-on her first outdoor Shakespeare experience! She has been seen locally with Taproot Theatre, Centerstage Theatre, Kitsap Forest Theatre, ACT Theatre, and more. She was most recently seen leading the cast of Love Letters, a new musical developed by non-speaking autistic writers in collaboration with Theatre of Possibility. Other favorite roles include Hester (A Woman of No Importance), Beth (Little Women), and Martha (Spring Awakening). Many thanks to the cast and crew who made this show possible!
Maria, Fabian, Officer
Olivia Finkelstein (she/her) is excited to be performing in such a beautiful environment this summer. This is her first production with Emerald Theatre, but, fun fact, it is her second time playing Fabian in “Twelfth Night”! Other recent roles include Rachael in “Appropriate” (Illinois Wesleyan) and Josie Pye in “Bend in the Road” (Kitsap Forest Theatre). In the fall, Olivia will be returning to Illinois Wesleyan University for her senior year, pursuing a BFA in Acting and a minor in Film Studies. She hopes that this story about the human instinct to love, despite misunderstanding, will touch you in a meaningful way.
Sebastian, Valentine, Captain, Messenger
Elliott is a transmasculine, non-binary performer who uses they/he pronouns. They are making their Emerald Theatre debut. He has acted with local companies such as Seattle Musical Theatre, UW Stage Notes, and Twelfth Night Productions, as well as companies in the Twin Cities. They especially enjoy engaging with neurodiversity and gender diversity through performance. Outside of theater, Elliott enjoys building community, dabbling in visual art, traveling, spending time with their dogs, and playing board and card games. He works as an academic coach at UW.
Brittany is so excited to be debuting on Emerald’s stage as a member of the Twelfth Night cast. A newcomer to the Greater Seattle Theatre Scene but you may have seen her as Jo in BOOM , as Wall in The Hatmaker’s Wife, or as Christmas Past/Present/Future in Scrooge: A Musical. She is eternally grateful to her support system of friends and family that continue to believe and support my lovely little dress up game as a passionate career. Much love. Enjoy the show!
Sir Andrew, Feste (the Fool)
Alan is thrilled to be a part of Twelfth Night. He has previously appeared in Murder on the Orient Express and A Chorus Line at Tacoma Little Theatre, Mamma Mia! and Rocky Horror at Auburn Avenue Theater and most recently at Tacoma Musical Playhouse in Escape to Margaritaville. He would like to thank his parents Steve and Nadine, his wife Illene, and kids Matilda and Rory for all their support.
Geneva is so excited to be making her Emerald Theater debut! Twelfth Night is one of her favorite Shakespeare plays and she couldn’t be more grateful to help bring it to life. She is currently attending NYU Tisch and will finish her double majors in Acting and Russian Studies next spring. Shoutout to Mom, Dad, Daphne, Cesca, and Boone :). Long live the Italian yacht hat!
