KELVIN HATLE is an actor, improviser, and writer who has been a fan of Doctor Who ever since he first struggled to make out the snowy image of a Silurian on Iowa Public Television. He’s been in numerous productions around the Minneapolis area, working with Stevie Ray’s Comedy Theater, Hardcover Theater, Box Wine Theater, Comedy Suitcase, Fearless Productions, HUGE Theater, and others. If it was funny and nerdy, odds are good he was in it. His one-man shows Death Perception, Someone Is Wrong On The Internet, and The Press Conference at the End of the World were warmly received as part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival. He has also been a panelist and performer at CONvergence for every year of its existence, as befits a lifelong fan of fantasy and science fiction with a raging need for attention.
PAT HARRIGAN is a writer and editor. He is the co-editor of several MIT Press collections on games and new media, including Zones of Control: Perspectives on Wargaming (2016), with Matthew Kirschenbaum, and the series First Person, Second Person and Third Person, with Noah Wardrip-Fruin. He has also written a novel, Lost Clusters (2005), a collection of short stories, Thin Times and Thin Places (2012), and a collection of performance pieces, The Lecture Tour (2017). He is a longtime Doctor Who fan and one of these days he’ll write that story where the Pertwee Doctor meets Chairman Mao.
ANTHONY KARNA (sound guy!) aimed his family’s rooftop antenna to a different PBS station one Saturday night in rural Minnesota. He saw a thin blond Brit wearing a beige suit, who was followed by some freaky guy covered in rotten black lettuce and who hid inside a grandfather clock. He decided that he liked it but had no idea why. Since then, he has worked in theater and audio-video production to gain useful real-life skills.
MATT KESSEN is a writer, actor, dramaturg, producer, and all kinds of stuff like that, living in Minneapolis. He is a core member of Green T Productions and has recently worked with Comedy Suitcase and Fearless Comedy Productions. His ongoing magnum opus, Reverend Matt’s Monster Science, which is a smorgasbord of facts about monsters and also jokes, appears monthly at the Minneapolis Encyclopedia Show, at other times in other places, and online at revmattsmonsterscience.com. He’s not sure who his favorite Doctor is, but his favorite companion is Liz Shaw, and his favorite monster is the Silurians.
Christian Erickson and Janey Winterbauer (THE SEVATEEM) are a boring married couple living in South Minneapolis. Christian grew up a hardcore Doctor Who nerd—even receiving a mock “Doctor Who Award” from his high school for being an incredible sci-fi dork. Janey, on the other hand, grew up in the theater doing much cooler things at CTC and other venues. The two met playing in electronic pop band Astronaut Wife at the turn of the millennium. Since the breakup of that band in the mid-2000s, Janey has become a ubiquitous voice in local music, lending her pipes to bands like The New Standards, The Suburbs and The Twilight Hours. She was also vocalist/cast member of MPR’s radio variety show “Wits” and has recently joined “The Obligation”—a theater group led by Wits creator John Moe. For his part, Christian has tried desperately to pretend he is as talented as Janey by fronting a rock band, making beats and music videos and convincing his wife to be the “better half” of the music duo The Sevateem. He is also a co-founder of design/creative agency Zeus Jones, based in the Whitter neighborhood of Minneapolis.
TIM UREN has been an actor, director, playwright, improvisor, and comedian in the Twin Cities for over twenty years. He’s the devious mind behind Ghoulish Delights and every year he helps to bring the Twin Cities Horror Festival to life. He recently appeared in Theatre Pro Rata’s production of The Illusion and directed Shadow Horse Theater’s production of American Midget. Tim also writes and designs for board games and card games, and would probably love to share a game night with you.
LAURA ZABEL is an actor and executive director of Springboard for the Arts. She is a frequent speaker on arts and community development at convenings such as the Aspen Ideas Festival, Urban Land Institute and Americans for the Arts. She was a 2014 Bush Foundation Fellow, was named one of the 50 most influential people in the U.S. Nonprofit Arts, and received the 2012 Visionary Leader award from the MN Council of Nonprofits.
ERIC WEBSTER is an actor, producer and writer for stage, radio and television for 25 years.
