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.

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.
