Ryland Moon – Dave Rhoades

According to my wife of 31 years, Jeanie, I am a Renaissance Man. I am a published author with my first novel released in 2010-Altar. My second novel – Road Rage will be out December of 2012. I am also a painter, singer, musician, actor and now Director/Producer. Jeanie and I are blessed with 5 children, 4 of whom are married and 6 1/2 grandchildren, due April 2013. And everyone lives within 15 minutes of us.

I started Call Back Theater Company because of my love of the theater which dates back to pre-college days. I have played a variety of roles down through the years including The Stage Manager in Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, Mr. Darbus in High School Musical, Grandpa Joe in Willie Wonka, Chicago in Is He Dead, Jean ValJean in Les Mis and Daddy Warbucks in Annie. (I shaved my head for two months). I’ve also played a variety of other roles and just recently played supporting characters in two motion pictures, one that was just released in October of 2012.

I still continue to work with several other theater groups in the Denver area and enjoy all the friends I have made through all that grease paint.

I am so thankful to be working with all of my friends and family who have come together to make Merry Gentlemen and Call Back Theater Company possible and I hope that you enjoy our shows!

 

Kimber Rampart – Amy Jo Becker

Amy Jo has been married to her sweetheart Damon Becker, for almost 10 years. She loves her job as Household Executive, especially relishing the time she spends with her daughters: Piper (almost 3 years) and Tesla (almost 3 months). She has a BA in English with a minor in Biblical Studies, and enjoys singing, art, writing and acting. Amy Jo grew up in the musical theater world and has appeared in such shows as: “Oklahoma,” (Ellen) “Hello, Dolly!” (Mrs. Rose) and “The Family Nobody Wanted,” (Church Lady). Her favorite movies include: Frida, Chocolat, Girl Interrupted, American Beauty, and Fight Club. She is also a BIG fan of Fringe. She would rather not ever cook again, preferring raw fruits and veggies, simply because they don’t require much preparation. She dislikes chocolate and she cannot pick her favorite candy out of these: Skittles, Runts, Nerds, Spree, Smarties, Candy Corn, and Gummy Bears. She cannot stand arrogant people, and her one of her favorite quotes is by Annie Dillard: “I only know enough of God to want to worship Him by any means at hand.” Amy Jo knows her calling in life is to worship, and she believes this can be done to even the tune of midday traffic. Her favorite time of life was childhood, and she loves reliving it with her girls.

Sheriff Mavis Standard – Heather Weiland  

I’m happily married to Eric, the man of my dreams & best friend for 18+ years. We have two amazing children, Hannah & Emily, who remind us daily how blessed we are! I work at a local bedding manufacturer with my wonderful husband. I love spending time with my family & friends & doing new, adventurous things with them.

My fave movie of ALL time is Braveheart, “FREEDOM!”

I have an egregious hatred of spiders, and being startled. (I’ve been known to hairspray a spider to an unrecognizable white blob to the wall, & throwing random office supplies at the office jokester trying to scare me.)

Special thanks to Dave Rhoades, a dear friend & talented writer. Without him, I wouldn’t have even attempted this role!
