Amber is the founding member of The Winding Sheet Outfit as well as a Twin Cities-based actor and director. She has directed almost all of the productions in TWSO's history, as well as several productions for Theatre Pro Rata (i.e. By the Bog of Cats, Elephant's Graveyard) as well as companies like Sandbox Theater, Theatre Unbound, Freshwater Theatre, Tedious Brief Productions, and others. She has performed with all of these companies as well as Transatlantic Love Affair, Nimbus Theatre, Guthrie Theatre, and others. Amber was a 2018 MN Theater Awards Honoree in Exceptional Performative Direction for TWSOs The Memory Box of the Sisters Fox and was named one of the 2019 Artists of the Year by CityPages for her work with The Winding Sheet Outfit. But in 2020, Shanan Custer named her a "magical person" and Amber considers this her greatest honor to date. This is her sixth year directing TWSO for Fringe (The Memory Box of the Sisters Fox, Blood Nocturne, You Are Cordially Invited to the Life and Death of Edward Lear, The Darger Project aka The Darger Project, Årsgång: What You Follow Follows You) and she is excited to remount this first collaboration with Special When Lit!!! Upcoming, she'll be directing TWSO for their fifth Twin Cities Horror Fest production (And What Alice Found there, When Your Love Sets You On Fire, Blood Nocturne, Stabby Stab Stab), a remount of the show she helped to create with Derek Lee Miller and Sandbox theater for the 2014 Minnesota Fringe: Marie-Jenne Valet Who Defeated La Bete du Gevaudan. Weird or Nerdy thing you were obsessed with as a kid: I watched Sesame Street through high school. What can I say? I was obsessed with Muppets. Still am. Favorite monster: Cookie Monster.

Kayla is shaking with excitement to perform Stabby Stab Stab for you all. She has previously worked with companies such as Daleko Arts (RIP), Theatre Pro Rata, Hero Now Theatre, Yellow Tree Theatre, among others. Kayla also started a company with a group of dope-ass people to teach organizations how to de-escalate through scenario-based training (check it out: www.crisisactorsmn.com). When Kayla isn't performing, she likes to spend most of her free time sleeping, hanging with her husband Jon, and singing songs of adoration to her stunning dogs Mira and Peewee. Coming up, Kayla will be directing for Special When Lit's KIN in the upcoming Twin Cities Horror Festival. Weird or Nerdy thing you were obsessed with as a kid: MY LITTLE PONIES. ALL DAY. EVERY DAY. Favorite Monster: Kraken!

Sam Landman
Voice of Slenderman/Drummer & Sound Effect Technician for Yeoman Purser
Beyond his role in last year’s TCHF production of Stabby, Sam’s previous appearance onstage was as a scantily clad Col. Sanders in Special When Lit’s 2022 MN Fringe show, “Finger Lickin’ Good.” But he’s written/performed for many festivals and theaters over the years, from his one-person “Sam of All None” to the improvised grief show, “Wish You Were Here,” while also somehow making it onto the stages of History Theatre, Park Square, Yellow Tree Theatre, Nimbus Theatre and Sandbox Theatre. He’s recently written a They Might Be Giants jukebox musical, in the early stages of writing a horror script about a Goth band and is currently writing/shooting sketches for a “comedy” group tentatively called Plaza del Mall. He also DJs under the handle of GustAvocados. As a kid, he was a little too obsessed with his J.J. Armes action figure (please Google this), and his favorite monsters are all the people commenting on the Fornicus, Lord of Bondage & Pain page on “The Cabin in the Woods” wiki (please don’t Google this).
Andre Johnson Jr
Stage Manager/Lighting Designer
André Johnson Jr. is a theater maker in the twin cities working mainly in the area of stage management. In his seven years in the twin cities, André has worked on many new and devised works as well as countless classical works. The process of creating has always been exciting to him. Getting to see a project start from a simple idea and work its way into a beautiful and unique piece of art is why he continues to work on such things. Outside of theater André is always creating via writing, mask making, drawing, or creating strange costume and clothing pieces. Weird or Nerdy thing you were obsessed with as a kid: I was obsessed with video games and really really wanted (and still do want) to make a video game. Favorite Monster: Mothman
