You may have also seen her as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl at Village Theatre. Find out more about Sarah at her website. Sarah will be portraying Fermina in the show, in addition to her part in the ensemble.

Three more No Name City citizens join the ranks: Nathaniel (Ethan Carpenter), Lotta (Sarah Rose Davis) and Vlad (Eric Esteb).

Vlad is an immigrant from Poland who is driven and determined to make his way in a new country.
Ethan is returning to our stage after making his debut last season in A Chorus Line. His other Seattle credits include Les Miserables, Funny Girl and My Fair Lady at Village, and The Fantasticks at Showtunes.
Sarah is no stranger to The 5th: she was seen earlier this season as lovelorn secretary Rosemary Pilkington in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Other favorites at The 5th include A Chorus Line (Maggie) and Grease (Frenchy), among others! Sarah has also been seen at Village in Funny Girl as Fanny Brice.
Eric is a regular here, having most recently been in our production of A Chorus Line last season. Other 5th Ave credits include Little Shop of Horrors, Spamalot, Secondhand Lions and others! Eric is also an aerialist with his partner Quynbi, who perform together under the name Duo Reves.
