MEET THE CAST OF THE SPITFIRE GRILL! Final in person show today, running virtually next weekend! Tickets available at www.atpneo.org

Neda is thankful that she is (finally!) performing with The Access Theatre Project’s production of The Spitfire Grill after being postponed due to COVID. She has recently performed in Productions of Into The Woods (Happy Endings Lyric Players), The Texas Chainsaw Musical (Blank Canvas Theatre) and Matilda The Musical (Beck Center). She has also done numerous streaming performances and was involved in two of the original Drive-In Theater concerts at Blank Canvas- “Still Standing” and “Make Them Hear You.” She has performed in shows at Dobama Theatre (Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Irregulars), Theater in the Circle (All Night Strut!), and Ensemble Theater (Huck and Holden). Thanks, Cameron and thanks to Richard for putting up with all this. Most importantly, thanks to all of you who have come out to support live theater.
