The Strauss would like to welcome Kelly Aaen back to our stage. After a 20 year hiatus, she is embracing the role of Constance Olden with as much dour austerity that she can muster! Kelly says that she feels honored to work with Director Terri Cunningham again and loves getting to know this talented cast.

Michael Parker was raised in the theatre in England, winning awards during his early teenage years for his performances, and touring at age 17 with the National Shakespearean Youth Company. A graduate of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, he served five years in the military, then, as he said, finding that the general need for anti-tank specialists was not so great, he moved to Canada, where he established a business that was so successful that after ten years he sold it and retired to the Caribbean, then was drawn to Florida to work in theatre.
