Heidi Jedlicka - Administrative Director
Heidi Jedlicka was the Administrative Director of Seoul Players. Hailing from Sioux Falls, SD USA she holds a degree in Theatre from The College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, MN USA. While in University she was fortunate to travel to Europe and China which fostered her love of theatre in international and non-traditional settings. After two children's theatre tours with South Dakota based Children's Theatre Company of Sioux Falls and Minnesota based CLIMB Theatre, she worked with several Minneapolis based companies before heading to Korea in 2009. When she's not answering Seoul Players emails, or teaching small children, you can find her lavishing attention on her grumpy turtle, Alfie or eating carbs.

Jonathan Sharrock is an Australian businessman who was based in Seoul from 2002 to 2007. To this day he is still trying to work out who he sufficiently upset to get sent to Korea, but he now enjoys the kimchi, soju and karaoke on a global basis. Whilst Jonathan's thespian activities normally took place on the wrong side of the bar at any of the usual haunts around Seoul, playing Les in Bouncers was his formal acting debut. After the departure of the Seoul Players founder Roman Zolnierczyk in 2005, Jonathan took the reins for his last 2 years in Seoul and was responsible for producing Never Swim Alone, This is a Play, and Hitchcock Blonde.

WIth a long history in the performing arts back in Canada and her Public Relations background, she has been thrilled to be part of the growing professionalism of Seoul Players. With her departure from Seoul, Pamela will remain as a Communications Consultant to Seoul Players and is looking forward to the exciting future the group holds as a vibrant component to Seoul's growing international scene.

Lyle has returned to the U.S.A and we all wish him many successes there!
Stephanie Foster - Outreach Associate
Stephanie Ann Foster hails from southern California, where life on her grandfather's ranch and an ample supply of old wedding dresses taught her the magic of effort and whimsy combined. While in California she became a founding member of the San Jacinto Valley Shakespeare Festival, and cavorted for two seasons with the Renaissance comedy troupe Marlowe’s Shadowe. She then went on to tour for four years as an actress, director, and unit leader with the Covenant Players drama ministry. Performances in prisons, military bases, churches, schools, and on street corners convinced her that theatre works in any space, and the audiences of Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Mainland China, and South Korea, confirmed that it captivates in any culture.
Stephanie currently teaches British literature and drama at an international school in Seoul. While pursuing an MA in Shakespeare and Theatre through the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom, she dabbles in improv, badgers others about Shakespeare, and impulsively hands her soul off to the stage. She recently appeared as Portia in the Actors Without Barders production of The Merchant of Venice, and as Sheila in the Seoul Players production of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg.
As a former outreach associate with the Seoul Players, she'd like to buy you a veggie burger, reorganize your cabinets, and involve you in the madness.

He brings big ideas, artistic know-how, and a real community awareness to the Seoul Players board.
