Brandon White

Class of 2006

Brandon graduated in 2006 from RHS and attended Western Oregon University, studying acting, directing, and technical theatre. There he was a Scene Shop Manager from 2008-2011. He was involved in all aspects of theatre, dance, cirque, and multiple music shows. After college, Brandon ended up back in the Redmond area and has worked for the Lake Washington School District since 2011. He has been involved with Redmond Drama since his 8th grade year. This season (20-21) will be Brandon's 20th year on and off with and around Redmond Drama. He is very grateful for the permanent chosen family he has found at RHS Drama and does not know what he would do without it!

Rebecca Cort

Class of 2013

Rebecca was so terrified of Shakespeare in high school that she decided to graduate in 2017 with an acting degree from Western Washington University. Recent professional credits include Brooke in Noises Off! at Harlequin Productions and Citizen: An American Lyric at Sound Theatre Company, which won a Gregory Award and Seattle Theatre Artists Award for Outstanding Ensemble, as well as productions with SecondStory Repertory and Café Nordo. She is a proud member of the Tweenland trio with Naomi Morgan Entertainment and is represented by The Actor's Group. Rebecca started theatre at fifteen with Kelly Willis and was tightly integrated in the Redmond High theatre community, which holds some of her absolute dearest memories, known for her Little Shop of Horrors appearance as "trash can girl" (apparently). Feel free to reach out with any coaching inquiries (or to chat about Audrey II puppetry or Commedia dell'arte). Instagram: @beckabrooke- DMs are always open, I don't bite!

Class of 2016

After graduating Redmond High School, Erich attended the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) as a member of the BFA Musical Theatre Class of 2020. He has been working regionally as an actor and choreographer across the United States. Professional performance credits include Newsies, 1776, Jesus Christ Superstar, Carrie, as well as being featured on the original cast recording of A Christmas Story, the Musical. He has also been incredibly fortunate to be a part of many new works of musical theatre, most recently the premiere of the newest version of Yeast Nation as well as the NYC reading of Dmitry Koltunov’s Nasha America. After receiving the 5th Avenue Award for Outstanding Choreography during his time at Redmond High, he has continued to choreograph professionally for Spring Awakening, Big Fish and others, while also premiering his first original full-length dance show This Moment at CCM in Spring 2019.
