Cael Anton, Artistic Associate
Cael is a composer, singer, and actor from Guelph, Ontario, Canada. When composing and recording, Cael makes texture-intensive tracks that use strong rhythmic juxtaposition to create dramatic structure. When performing music live, Cael builds loops that leave you scratching your head in wonder and shaking your booty in delight. He recently appeared as Stanley Kowalski in Seoul Players’ production of A Streetcar Named Desire. He is excited to be releasing his debut solo album, The Architect Becomes a Tree, in 2012.

He has performed in many shows including The Medora Musical, an international tour of Babes in Toyland, and his favorite, the title role in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. He is very excited to be a part of the ever growing ex-pat theater community in Seoul!
Quinn Olbrich - Artistic Associate

He has directed Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? for Probationary Theatre and looks forward to more directing projects in the future. He also has a passion for writing and is studying to become a broadcast journalist.
Jessica Adel - Outreach Director
Jessica Adel is a transplanted Canadian actor, singer, writer, and promoter of strong community living who now calls Korea home. Working as The Director of Community Outreach, she hopes to build strong partnerships between the ex-pat and Korean theatre communities of Seoul. With interests ranging from yoga to digital art, from dancing to bunnies and moon-gazing, it's a wonder she finds time to feed herself and crawl in to bed each night.
Though she misses maple cookies and the occasional moose sighting, Jessica plans to continue building social ties in lovely, mulit-colour ribbons all over the city of Seoul, and sees herself settling here for a substantial amount of time... or, at least until the next full moon
Matt Hawkins - Treasurer
Matt enjoys helping out behind the scenes in any way he can, whether it be rewiring lights, getting sandwiches, being tall, or you know…managing all of our finances for us, without which we would never get anything done!
Joe Halvarson - Web Master
Joe Halvarson is a lover of the arts from Forest Lake, MN. He came to Korea by way of Minneapolis a few years after securing a degree in English from the Univeristy of Minnesota, Morris. Joe began making web pages soon after his family got their first computer in 1998. His first website was for a little thing, you've probably heard of it, Downstairs Basement Championship Wrestling. That was made on Angelfire and can be located using the Internet Archive. Currently he hopes he makes better webpages (and writes better poetry than that) and performs improv whenever possible. Joe began his improv love in 2002 in college. After graduating he was a member of The T-Rex Force, Treppenwitz and performed with ComedySportz in Minneapolis, MN. Joe used to perform with Seoul City Improv. He's now back in Minneapolis and working at HUGE Improv Theater in the evenings and a real job during the day.
