Meredith Stepien as Jemilla
Meredith Stepien is from Pinckney Michigan, and has been a part of Starkid for 6 years now! She met these goofballs at the University of Michigan, and still loves gettin silly with everyone! She's coming up on her 7th year in Chicago, where she has been doing standup, improv, and music all over the city. She loves animals. Especially tiny ones. Come to the Adler Planetarium!!
Meredith will be offering her talents on and off stage, as she’s also co-writing the music for Firebringer!
Let's change the rules! Next cast member unlocked at $129k!!!
Lauren Lopez as Zazzalil
Lauren is an actress, singer and dancer currently living in Los Angeles, CA and is PUMPED for Firebringer. She most recently performed in and choreographed The Tin Can Brothers' original musical "Spies are Forever" which just ended its run in LA! She is an original member of Team StarKid and has worked with them on several new musicals, two national tours, and partnerships with The Second City & iO in Chicago. In addition to performing, Lauren has also worked as a choreographer for new musicals. She's also done a bunch of commercials which are wonderful on account of the residual checks.
We're so happy to have Lauren back in Chicago! It wouldn't be a StarKid Summer without her! She's also perfect for a stone-age show, as she doesn't enjoy the modern luxury of gluten!
Next cast member revealed at $128k!
Another record weekend for Firebringer!
Once again you guys have gone above and beyond to help make Firebringer an amazing StarKid show! We reached our stretch goal this weekend, and now have over $125,000 pledged! Go Team Firebringer! What do you think of that nickname? Team Fire-cats? Team F-bomb?
4 DAYS LEFT!
We've got until 4pm on Friday, April 15 to keep these pledges going! The budget is going to be a little larger than we thought, but that's because some things have changed for the better as we've been creating Firebringer. So every little bit helps! One of those changes involves...
We are now ready to announce the cast for Firebringer. It features 11 actors, many of whom you know, and some of whom you've never seen before! (at least with us). We'll announce each member of the cast as our pledges grow! You get the first cast member at $126k and a new cast member every $2000 after that!
That's all for today! Looking forward to handing out more LOTR scenes, announcing cast members, and having one hell of a day on Friday! Let's do it! Team F-bomb!
