Kat Miller will read from Yiyun Li’s Kinder Than Solitude. Miller is a proud member of Actor’s Equity Association. She began her professional theater career performing in regional theaters of Northern California. She is a former member of the Sacramento Theatre Company, where her credits include Gwendolen in The Importance of Being Earnest, Vicky/Brooke in Noises Off, The Goddess Parvati in Arranged Marriage, Ifigenia in Electricidad, and Padma in Queen of the Remote Control. Miller is also a member of the Canadian Actor’s Equity Association. Credits abroad include the role of Tecmessa in Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Ajax in Afghanistan and Artemis in Valina Hasu Houston’s The Intuition of Iphigenia—both productions were world premieres performed in Greece in 2012. Other favorite shows include Fat Pig, Much Ado About Nothing (Capital Stage), A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Taming of the Shrew, and Othello (Sacramento Shakespeare Festival).
Charlotte French will read Lois Ann Abraham’s “Mary Jesus.” French has enjoyed theater in its many aspects, from puppet shows as a child to directing, choreographing, acting, and costuming as an adult. She has had the pleasure of working with a number of local groups, including the Davis Comic Opera, Roseville’s Magic Circle, the Woodland Opera House, the Sacramento Opera, and the Davis Musical Theater Company. Of all the varied roles she has played, her favorite will always be Desiree in A Little Night Music. She is looking forward to reading for Stories on Stage Davis.
