Meet the Cast
Production and Creative Team
Marshelle Giggles-Mills (Director, Enneagram 2/4) is thankful for another opportunity to create on the Charles Stewart Howard Playhouse stage. She is a founding member and the Artistic Director of the CSHP. Recent projects in the director's seat include Beyond Therapy, 12 Angry Jurors, Working, A Piece of My Heart and The Theory of Relativity. Marshelle is best known for her love of hugs, ladybugs, fuzzy socks, her allergies and her fear of squirrels and craigslist (shoutout to her 6th favorite Collica). Love and gratitude to Doug and her kiddos- Ruby, Bubba, and AJ- for their unyielding support. For more random thoughts and carefully organized chaos, you can stop by her Instagram @meshagiggles.
Suzanne Ryan (Producer) is a founding member of the CSHPlayhouse. Geek by day, thespian by night, she loves working with the cast and crew of Things My Mother Taught Me. This show has made her laugh often and loudly - so needed in our world right now! She hopes that you enjoy tonight's performance - she'll be laughing in the back, loudly.
Brittany Sundman (Stage Manager) has been stage managing shows at the CSHP since 2017 and loving every second of it. Brittany also directed the first staged reading of Tabletop the Musical at the CSHP before it premiered at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. She has been involved in theatre both onstage and backstage since she was 12. When she’s not herding cats at the theater, Brittany is usually herding her actual cats and dog at home.
