Brett has done this before. Over the last ten years, he has clocked in nearly 40 designs with 10 different theater troupes. His notable credits include Luther College, Mayo Clinic, and his current endeavor, THAT Theatre Company as a founding member. When not designing and/or building, he enjoys being a dad, listening to Kayley (for self-preservation purposes) and watching hockey.
Kayley is thrilled to be with That Theatre Company. She has been performing on stage for 20 years. Recently, she appeared as Viv in Brokken Family, Kitty in The Drowsy Chaperone, Villian in Almost, Maine, and Brenda Strong in Catch Me If You Can at the Civic. She received her BA in Journalism and Mass Communications with a Theatre minor from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. She would like to thank her husband Brett and their son Theodore for their love and support.
David is thrilled to be returning to That Theater Company where he previously performed as Lyle in “Jeff on the Shelf” and Aubrey in "Brokken Family". He also has performed with the Rochester Rep, and Rochester Civic as well as Mantorville Theater Company. He is also the Vice President of the Rochester Rep board. David lives in Rochester with his wife, Kelly. They have two grown children and a geriatric dog named Toby.
I’m very excited to once again be joining That Theatre, this time as a writer. You may have seen him in the Jeff on The Shelf and Our Kid’s Birthday. Previous recent works include The Rainmaker, Godspell, and The Spitfire Grill. If he’s not in the theatre goofing off, he’s either working at Chester’s Kitchen and Bar or driving around town running orders. He sincerely hopes you all enjoy the show!
Sean was last seen in Calliope Theater's production of "Head Over Heels". He is a fan of corn dogs, with catsup, and happy to be back in the Black Box doing something completely different.
Blake is a founding member and the Executive Artistic Director of That Theatre Company. He's appeared in shows at Rochester Rep, Absolute Theatre, The Civic Theatre, Wits End in Chatfield, Mantorville Opera House, and Yellow Tree Theatre in Osseo, MN. Blake lived in Los Angeles for over a decade appearing in How I Met Your Mother, Raising Hope, 90210, The Benchwarmers, The Soup, and various forgettable national commercials. Blake holds a very useful BFA in Acting from UMD. He dedicates this show to his wife Suz and her endless love and support and helpful reminders to stop procrastinating and write these Goddamn shows already.
Suzanne is very excited to be returning to the stage and to again be performing alongside her incredibly talented husband, Blake Hogue. Suzanne is a founding member of That Theatre Company and is currently serving as the Board's current Treasurer. She also appeared in all of That Theatre Company's Inaugural 2019 Season productions. She is truly grateful to be able to be performing once again and cannot wait for all the amazing things yet to come for That Theatre Company!
Rich moved to Rochester with his wife, Sara in 2018. He's been on stage at the Rochester Rep and the Rochester Civic as well as in Zumbrota, Pine Island and Mantorville. An experienced stand up comic and improviser, Rich has performed throughout the Midwest as well as Alabama, Georgia and much of the South East. :

He has worked with various local theatre companies, including the Civic Theatre, Rochester Rep, Calliope Theatre and Mantorville Opera House. He is also a founding member of That Theatre Company.

He would like to thank his super fantastic amazing wife Sam for being super freaking awesome and writing his bio for him.

Sam holds a BA in Theatre Arts from Saint Mary’s University in Winona and has performed and directed on multiple stages in the Midwest as well as New York, London and Dublin.
