The inequities and occasionally mortifying perils of online learning are laid bare in an eventful high school Zoom class.
VICTORIA KELLEHER (MS. MILLIGAN)
Leaving Saint Paul, Minnesota, Victoria Kelleher, moved to Los Angeles to follow her passion for acting. She has worked with such powerhouses as Steven Spielberg, Sally Field and Patricia Heaton. Most recently, she worked on For The People, Unbelievable, and as the Werewolf Wife on the Spectrum ads. She is excited to be making her Zoom debut in this production of HOLES.
AMANDA BERKE (SARAH SCHWARTZ)
Wow. Meryl Streep hasn’t even been in a zoom play! Amanda’s career started out as a phone booth when she was five and her obsession with making others laugh and studying characters has only grown. Amanda studied at Stella Adler and is currently studying at Lesly Kahn in LA . Amanda is in the Groundlings and is continuing to audition and work hard at her craft. Wait, can one get a Tony Award nomination from zoom?
EMILY KIMBALL (KELSEY OLSON)
Emily Kimball is making her zoom debut for the play HOLES. Emily can be seen (pre pandemic) playing Amber on Shameless season 10, Emily on NCIS: New Orleans and Dawn in the film Undeserved. She was looking to venture out from film and TV and pursue live theater. A zoom play (although not what she initially imagined when she thought of live theater) is a new and exciting experience for Emily. The zoom medium fits perfectly with her quarantine motto "pajama all day, stay home and slay" So when she was offered this role she was thrilled! Emily is from Portland Oregon but is currently quarantined at her home in Silver Lake, Los Angeles California.
TUNISHA HUBBARD (HALEY CIFAX)
If there were a zombie apocalypse, Tunisha Hubbard's number one contribution to the survival group would be her smile. And if that didn't work, she’d probably make friends with all the zombies and take them on a shopping spree. When she isn't giving makeover tips, she likes taking spontaneous trips to day spas and quiet towns with her girls or playing with kawaii photo apps. She works out by doing Water Aerobics at the Senior Center or roller skating in her pink skates. Her high school superlative would be Most Likely to Become a Mermaid. You can check out her most recent co-star on Black-ish, episode, “Hair Day”.
