The Access Theatre Project

Northeast Ohio's premiere Pay-What-You-Will Theater

Only TWO performances left for A DELICATE BALANCE! Tickets available at www.atpneo.org

MEET THE CAST!

Robert Haag (Harry) had a small part in Inherit the Wind in high school forty years ago and then disappeared for a few decades into a variety of schools in various countries, emerging at Short & Sweet Dubai in 2018. He acted in several short plays culminating in directing and starring in A Game for Knights, written by his daughter Mattie Haag. Since returning to Ohio, Robert has been involved in a number of productions, most recently Our Town with the Willoughby Theater Festival, Clue: the Stay-At-Home Version with the Broadview Heights Spotlights and Obnoxiously Unconstitutional with Twin Masks Theater.

One weekend left for A DELICATE BALANCE! Tickets available at www.atpneo.org

MEET THE CAST!

Sarah Goehrke (Julia) is a Cleveland-area native merrily putting her degrees in both theatre and English to real-world use. Among her all-time favorite theatrical roles to have portrayed have been Violet Weston (August: Osage County, LytHouse Theatre), Cheerleader #1 (Exit Interview, River Street Playhouse), Ruth (Stage Directions, Lake Erie College), Pozzo (Waiting for Godot, Muskingum College), and Sylvia (The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Cleveland Blackbox Theatre). Edging into two decades' experience in improv comedy, Sarah has performed at various Renaissance/medieval faires and other such unlikely venues over the years. After a delightful Access Theatre Project virtual production earlier this year (Remote in Hindsight 2020), she is thrilled to return to the physical stage with this excellent cast. She also runs a business focusing on the 3D printing industry, for which she often finds herself anywhere from Barcelona or Boston to Tel Aviv or Taipei (or at least this was the case in the Before Times). Sarah lives on the east side with her beloved husband, bitty son, and three cats.
