CAST & CREW

Derek McAlister

Cast- Spirit Guide

Derek McAlister traveled the world as a juggling acrobatic comedian clown idiot for over a decade before coming to LA 3 years ago to study under the incomparable Paola Coletto.  Last year he was a part of an amazing immersive experience called Theater Macabre under the direction of Darren Bousman.

Josh Pritchard

Cast- Spirit Guide

Josh Pritchard spends most of his time sitting in front of glowing screens, fixing blinking boxes and helping people remember their passwords.  When he isn't doing that (and sometimes when he IS doing that) Josh likes to pretend he is someone else.  Sometimes that is on the stage, sometimes it is at a table surrounded by paper, pencils, and multi-sided dice.  Shadow Space gives Josh a wonderful opportunity to perform with a great and talented group of performers and he couldn't be happier about it.
