Ginger Dayle (Emma Duncan) has appeared in New City Stage productions of Angel, Sunshine, Extremities, Talk Radio, A Stone Carver, Unidentified Human Remains...and most recently in Miss Witherspoon. She produced her first show in September of 2006 on a hope and a prayer that it would lead to more opportunities and since then she has produced 10 shows, acted in several, researched more plays than she can remember, served as fundraiser and publicist for this and other companies, and become the only full-time volunteer employee of NCS. She has also given opportunities to many emerging artists in the Delaware Valley, especially recent college graduates. She is a UPenn grad that is currently pursuing a dancing/acting/singing career in Philadelphia. She spends most of her "free time" at Symmetry Dance Wellness with Kip and teaching at the Banana Factory in Allentown. Other performing includes PA Ballet and the Royal Ballet of London. Thank you to the cast and crew for your enthusiasm and hard work. Namaste to all the devis at Wake Up Yoga. For my Russ – mwahhh! Thanks for allowing me to make mistakes, and all of your loving support. I couldn't have done it
without you.

Cheryl Williams (Grace Duncan) is delighted to be making her debut with New City Stage Company, having recently returned from Phoenix, where she'd been on tour as 'The Narrator' in the Act II Theatre Company's phenomenally successful 2009 production of Respect: A Musical Journey of Women, a role which she'd reprised during that show's extended residency at the Society Hill Playhouse in 2010. Other recent Philly/NJ credits include Francis in David Hare's The Breath of Life at Lantern Theatre (Barrymore/Outstanding Lead Actress 2010) and Amanda in The Glass Menagerie with Act Out Theatre. She's also had the pleasure of working with Mauckingbird Theatre Co. (Hedda Gabler), Temple Theatre (Expecting Isabel) at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, Act II Playhouse (The Street of Useful Things), and Mayfair Theatre (How I Learned to Drive). She's also enjoyed doing staged readings and workshopping new scripts with PlayPenn, PAC and InterAct's Writing Aloud series. She received her MFA in Acting from Wayne State University in Detroit while performing 3 seasons with the Hilberry Classic Repertory Theatre. She loves teaching (that's another bio!) and is currently a proud member of the Temple acting faculty, wishing to thank her students for inspiring WONDER each and every class. Thanks to Brenna and the fantastic cast and crew of Pterodactyls… it's been a pleasure. Eric, my love, you are my rock.

Recent roles include Black Cat Husband in Haunted Poe (Brat Productions), Lenny in Any Given Monday (Act II Playhouse) and Stu in a staged reading of Theresa Rebeck's What We're Up Against (Philadelphia Theatre Company). As a playwright he has won two Barrymore Awards. His play The Outgoing Tide opens at Northlight Theatre this spring starring John Mahoney and Rondi Reed. Mister Hart and Mister Brown will premiere at People's Light and Theatre in the summer of 2012. Graham teaches playwriting, film and stand-up comedy at Drexel University. He lives in South Philly with Stephanie, Kendall and Truman.
