Eric James: (Prince) Is he human? Is he alive? Is he from Earth? Yes, he is all these things, but
most importantly he is very excited to be returning to The BiTSY for his sophomore effort in theater! Eric began playing guitar at age 11. Throughout the years, he began to delve into other instruments including violin, drums, piano, accordion, bass, and very recently oud. He has been involved in numerous bands in the Denver/Boulder areas, stylistically ranging from jazz, to punk, to folk, to funk, to world music, rock, and recently country. Eric is currently studying at MSU Denver to earn a B.Mus in jazz guitar performance. He always looks forward to keeping his audience riveted no matter the medium of entertainment!
Zach Brown: (Lala) Zach previously appeared in two productions with The Betsy Stage (Hamlet: A Gypsy Tale, and Othello: A Khorus Line), and he feels lucky to return to the same space to work with The BiTSY on this show.  Born in Denver, Zach studied Shakespeare in Virginia but returned because there's no place like home.  He works technical theatre jobs around town, and considers himself fortunate indeed to be not only acting with The BiTSY, but serving also as their lighting designer.  He would like to thank Jeri, John, Sam, Patti, Chris, Kaitlyn, Rekha, Lady Michal, Shannon, and the entire production/creative team for kindling, amid less than clement skies, a bright and vital spot of light.
Rachel Seiger: (Princess) Rachel moved to Denver at the end of February and is excited to make her debut performance in Denver at The BiTSY Stage! She was previously living in Berlin, Germany for two years where she engaged in many creative and theatrical endeavors including writing and performing her one woman show entitled Feeling Galaxies: Part II. Rachel received her B.A. in theatre from The Ohio State University in 2014. During her studies, she specialized in movement and dance and also participated in a research project called Shakespeare and Autism. During university Rachel performed in several main stage productions, along with smaller collaborative performances both within and beyond the Theatre Department. In her free time, Rachel likes to picnic with friends, ride her bike, cook, travel, and says hi to dogs hoping they will love her in return. Rachel is grateful to be cast in the production of The Silent Princess and is happy to share the experience with all who join us!
Enoc Castillo: (Ensemble/Storyteller/King) Enoc is a local actor out of Aurora, Colorado.  The Silent Princess is his first professional production on his journey as an actor and he is grateful for the opportunity to tell this story.  He is very excited to be a part of The BiTSY Stage family and hopes that one and all feel the passion and whimsy the theater can offer.
​George Hunter Sepmeier: (Ensemble/Oud Player) George began performing at an early age by acting, dancing, and making up songs to sing to his family (His biggest hit: “Pancakes and What They Do To A Man”). Growing up he refined his passion for performing in school plays and musicals, choirs, Shakespeare festivals, and acting and music camps. George discovered an interest in playing music in middle school, taking up viola in the school orchestra. In high school, he joined the acting club, continued to play in the school orchestra, and started learning the guitar and electric bass. After high school, he played in several bands including a local world music band, which gave him an appreciation for middle eastern music and culture, and inspired him to learn to play the oud. In May 2016 George received his AA in Music with honors from Community College of Denver. He plans to continue studying music and the performing arts in the future.
