Miatta Ade Lebile (Nasasha) is an actress only because she can’t ascend to a monarchy. Also because she isn’t sure a crown can be paired with a love of fruit roll ups and cheap tequila. She is a Texan living in L.A. who has traveled the world, speaks decent French, and sings anything from opera to R&B.  She attended Cornell University for her B.A and then earned her M.B.A from the Metropolitan College of New York.

He is currently developing a full-length musical based on North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus, a memoir by Candace Jane Kringle, the daughter of Santa Claus. Chaturbate: The Musical! is his third project to be developed though New Musicals Inc. and his first time at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Kevin Mathie (Music Director) has 25 years’ experience working as a music director, composer, and pianist. He has spent much of that time as a resident music director for The Grand Theater in Salt Lake City, Utah, and also Salt Lake Acting Company. He has also written the music to five musicals that have been produced on stage and over a dozen incidental scores for non-musicals. For TV he was the music director/arranger for the Showtime special, Race, Religion, and Sex in Utah, with Larry Wilmore.

Matt JJ Miller (Mr. Handcock) is an actor and singer originally from the Baltimore, Maryland. Both Hairspray and The Wire are based on different periods of his life, but he got screwed out of the rights and royalties for both. He flew to L.A. for the ensuing lawsuit (that he lost), and hasn’t been able to afford a ticket back since. While he’s stranded in LaLa Land, he’s thrilled to be a part of this artistic community. His favorite past rolls include such hits as brioche, pretzel, and classic dinner.

Tamara Philbrick (Laura London) is thrilled to be making her Hollywood Fringe Festival debut. Favorite roles include Luisa in The Fantasticks, Esther in Meet Me in St. Louis, and Becca in Rabbit Hole. She also tunes pianos, trains for marathons, and rumor has it dressed as Dorothy and hit up Hollywood Boulevard with her little dog, too. Proud AMDA (NYC) and Millikin University alum.

Chandler Reed (Phil) Is an actor, musician, and recent graduate of AMDA College and Conservatory. He is very happy to be making his Fringe Festival debut in multiple NMI projects this summer. When he is not on stage Chandler is outdoors with his girlfriend Madison and their dog Buddy.
