Jaime is a 9-year resident of Nashville who is a loving, devoted wife and dog mother to Henry and Bubba. If you recognize her, it’s probably not from any previous “theatrical” experience and more likely that she has served you drinks or high-fived you at a beer festival. When asked, Jaime said her inspiration was the late, great Heath Ledger’s performance in 10 Things I Hate About You. But sexier.
This marks Daniel’s third year with the company. He started acting on a whim in 2012 and hasn’t stopped since. His credits include ‘Picasso at the Lapine Agile’, ‘1984’, ‘Vanya, Sonia, Masha, & Spike’ and others he'll boastfully tell you about. Daniel is a Kentucky native, works as a graphic artist, is sneaky like a ninja and is still waiting for the My Chemical Romance reunion.
Evan made his stage debut in his mother's womb some 33 years ago in the classic Marat Sade by Peter Weiss. Although destined to spend the rest of his life under the stage lights, he took a slight detour and joined the Army; serving 9 years including three all-expense paid working vacations to the sunny mountains of Afghanistan. Evan now splits his time between theatre, work, and failing attempts to keep his 3-year-old out of trouble. This is Evan’s third year with Inebriated Shakespeare.
