Mallory Vance has been writing since the tender age of five and, after being bit by the theater bug in third grade, loves nothing more than bringing a story to life on stage. Through her production company, Phoenix Tears Productions, she has had the opportunity to write, direct, produce, and even try her hand at things like set design and costumes. She is thrilled to once again be producing a show for Orlando Fringe and hopes that everyone enjoys their experience at Stardust Kingdom and Stardust After Dark.
Amanda Simmons is an audio wizard who turns sound waves into art. She has molded this show into what it is today and was so busy doing that that she didn't write a bio...which means her sneaky partner gets to. Amanda is really great at audio engineering live and pre recorded audio having done so for 8 years now. She is also a very talented actor and kisser...but if you kiss her, the fairy will get angry! So back off!
