Tempest studied Theater & Performance Studies at the University of Chicago. Her teaching repertoire covers everything from devising political theater with 10-year-olds to teaching adults to slip on banana peels.

Mickey is known for playing Christopher Boone in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time at Syracuse Stage and Indiana Repertory Theatre, and the title role in Amadeus at Syracuse Stage. He has directed a school touring show for La Jolla Playhouse and is the founder and Artistic Director of National Disability Theatre.


Helen Marion (she/her): actor and teaching artist

Helen is very familiar to Centerstage audiences, as she’s spent 3 of the past 4 years enchanting holiday audiences as our Panto princess! She was our Red in Little Red Riding Hood, Belle in Beauty and the Beast and most recently Maid Marion in Robin Hood! If you have a little one who dreams of being the Panto princess one day, here’s their chance to be taught by one!
