Thomas Buan
Director (How to Kill a Horse!)
Brian Watson-Jones
Curator/Director/Performer (Slices)
Brian Watson-Jones (he/him) is delighted to finally bring this notion to the stage after kicking the idea around for... too many years. As an actor, he's performed with Mounds Theater, Six Elements, Live Action Set, Upright Egg, Theater in the Round, and was last seen at the Fringe as the Ringmaster in The Bisexual Unicorn. His writing has been performed from Los Angeles to Prague, usually in English but occasionally in Klingon. He also writes for and performs in the horror anthology podcast Ghost Wax, which you can find on whatever app you use for such things. His resume is looking more and more like a red-stringed conspiracy board every day, but whaddya gonna do?
Cate Jackson
Performer (Slices)
Cate Jackson (she/her) is thrilled to be returning to Fringe with this brilliant crew! She has worked across the cities with Haunted Basement and Catacomb Collective, Nimbus Theater, Smartmouth Comedy, Sparkle Theatricals, Jackdonkey Productions, Little Lifeboats, An Alleged Theater Company, TheatreX, The BAND Group, TRP, Live Action Set, and more. At home Cate is a chaos gardener with a pollen allergy and a cat mom.
Gregory Parks
Performer (Slices)
Gregory Parks is an actor, improviser, and clown from the Twin Cities. He’s toured with Ringling Brothers Circus in the USA and Kinoshita Circus in Japan, has been performing solo, mostly-silent improv as Where I Am Now for nine years, and has appeared in lead and secondary roles in A Klingon Christmas Carol and It’s an Honorable Life. He loves his fiancée and the fuzzy roommate Catsian Andor.
H Jo Raiter
Performer (Slices)
H Jo Raiter is an artist, designer, horror enthusiast, and actor. Their last work was co-creating and directing Ted's Talk with the Haunted Basement / Catacomb Collective for the Twin Cities Horror Festival in 2022. They love gnomes, cats, and mustaches, so if you have a cat with a mustache who's dressed as a gnome, they want to see a picture.
Clay McLeod Chapman
Writer (Slices)
Clay McLeod Chapman is the author of, among other works, the novels "What Kind of Mother" and "Ghost Eaters", the comics "Self Storage" and "Scream: Curse of Carnage", the podcast "Quiet Part Loud" (with Mac Rogers), and the original book for "Wendell & Wild" (with Henry Selick).
