Claire was born and raised in Russell, Kentucky and graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Performance and, a minor in English. This summer, Claire played Calliope/Aphrodite in Xanadu and directed a TYA production of Space Pirates at the Prizery in South Boston, VA. Outside of directing, Claire toured performing comedy shows with Murder and Merriment, a professional murder mystery improv troupe! Claire also loves to brush up on musical theatre history, play the piano, and costume design in her free time. Last year Claire toured on Peter Pan with PFCT, and this Fall we are excited to have her back to play Lucia/The Storyteller in Jack and the Beanstalk!

Will was born and raised outside of Buffalo, NY but now calls Columbia, SC home. He graduated from the College of Charleston in 2017 and has been touring with PFCT since. You could have seen him in Peter Pan, Tom Sawyer, Alice in Wonderland, Robin Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Cinderella, A Christmas Carol, Alladin, or Pinocchio!  Will loves watching movies, playing video games, and just being around the one he loves. He is super duper excited to revisit the dual role Giant/Ringmaster in Jack and the Beanstalk!
