MISSION

Available Light is a fellowship of artists dedicated to building a more conscious and compassionate world by creating joyful and profound theatre and by serving our community.

lighting designer with strong connections to the local dance and theatre communities of central Ohio. A sucker for road trips, Carrie has toured with Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE, Momix, the Carolotta Santana Spanish Dance Company, Robert Post, and hosts of other large-hearted artists, including, most recently, Meghan Durham Wall and Karl Rogers. By day, she is a production manager in the OSU Department of Dance; by summer, she is the production manager for the Bates Dance Festival in Lewiston, Maine.

ACACIA LEIGH DUNCAN

(Anna) is a founding member of Available Light Theatre. Favorite roles with AVLT include those in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, John Cage 101, Skyscrapers of the Midwest, Richard the Third, Dirty Math, Church, Dead City, and 33 Variations. Other favorites include The Rubenstein Kiss (CATCO), Hamlet, Taming of the Shrew, Tartuffe (Actors’ Theatre), and All My Sons (Gallery Players). Acacia studied at Miami University and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. This show is for my dad.

JORDAN FEHR

(Brian) is an award winning actor, five-time award nominated sound designer, and proud company member of Available Light Theatre. Jordan hails from the eastern suburbs of Cleveland and holds a BA in Music Composition with a minor in Theatre from Denison University. During his time at DU, Jordan was a member of Burpee’s Seedy Theatrical Company, the legendary short form improv comedy troupe, and was a founder of the Denison Independent Theatre Association. After which time he learned post-production sound design at Vancouver Film School. Ever since his first play, he has loved theatre and performing. To have the opportunity to make theatre for Columbus with the fantastic people at AVLT is a dream come true. Most recently with AVLT he played Dakin in The History Boys, was the sound mixer for Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, and the sound designer for Jane Eyre.


ADAM HUMPHREY (Stage Manager)

is still absolutely tickled to be doing what he loves in a town he loves with people he loves. After growing up here, then skipping town for a year to do theatre with the Purple Rose Theatre Company in Chelsea, MI, he came back and re-discovered Columbus, and fell in with a crowd that consistently encourages him to be a better artist and a better person. It doesn’t get any better than that. Thanks to his family, friends, and brothers, and especially his lovely and long-suffering wife.

ELENA M. PERANTONI (Rebecca)

is a proud Available Light company member and part time vigilante super hero.* Favorites with AVLT so far include Skyscrapers of the Midwest, How To Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Jane Eyre, and bobrauschenbergamerica. Some of Elena’s favorite things include her hilarious husband, ridiculous cat, amazing family, running (semi) long distances, and attempting to bench press a bear. She misses the carefree days of video taping homemade talk shows with her elementary school best friend, and hopes that those embarrassing tapes were destroyed and are no longer in her mother’s basement.

MICHELLE G. SCHROEDER

(Julie) is a proud founding member of Available Light Theatre. Born and raised in Columbus, in 1978 she was blessed by divine intervention–and her parents–when they moved to Chapelfield Road where Michelle began her lifelong study of friendship with Chad, Kathy, and a stack of refrigerator boxes. She later studied acting at The Ohio State University, earning a BA in Theatre. Favorite roles with AVLT include those in then after water, Tomorrow is the Question, [How to] Stay Human, Time and a Few Words, God’s Ear (for which she won Columbus Theatre Critic’s Best Actress in 2009), Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, Jane Austen’s

Why Pay What You Want? Now more than ever, we all need great art. And now, more than ever, we can’t let economic circumstances shut anyone out of the theater. It’s simply a better world when we can all afford to see great shows, no matter how much cash we’ve got in our wallets on any given day. WHAT IS PAY WHAT YOU WANT? You choose how much you pay for your tickets. Again, it’s about removing the barriers between you and great art. WHEN CAN I PAY WHAT I WANT? With very rare exceptions, Pay What You Want is available at the door for every ticket, for every show, for everyone. SO HOW MUCH SHOULD I PAY? Well, we design the shows to be worth $30+ per seat. However, we want that to be broad enough to include those who might not be able to pay as such. So, our suggested price is $20. At that number you’re covering the cost of your seat and throwing in a little extra to help support the Pay What You Want program for everyone. The most popular choices are $20, $10, and $5. CAN I DECIDE WHAT TO PAY AFTER I SEE THE SHOW? You have to pay something to get in, but we do have a fishbowl to accept additional support after the show. DOES ANYONE REALLY PAY MORE THAN THEY HAVE TO? Yes, we have many wonderful supporters who pay $30, $50, even $100 and much more every time they see a show. Their support is a large part of how we’re able to continue this program. We could get really deep and philosophical at this point about the actual value of money and the psychological implications of paying more, but we’ll let you determine your own views on that. We can say this: you will probably feel good doing it.
