Alex Brightman

Brightman has scored two for two Tony nominations for playing lovable schlups at the Winter Garden Theatre, first as Dewey in School of Rock - The Musical and now as the title role in Beetlejuice, but in 2014, Brightman took over for Taylor Trensch in Matilda The Musical in a featured ensemble role. In addition to portraying the leading lady’s luddite brother, Michael Wormwood, Brightman also played one of the “revolting children” banishing the evil Miss Trunchbull.

Kelli O’Hara

A Tony Award winner for her portrayal of Anna Leonowens in The King and I, O’Hara has a remarkable 11 Broadway shows to her credit. One of the first of those was the 2001 revival of Follies where she played Young Hattie and then replaced Erin Dilly in the role of Young Phyllis. She also understudied Young Sally and Young Heidi in the production’s opening company.

Ephraim M. Sykes

Sykes has more than just ensemble cred, he’s a thoroughbred ensemblist. After making his Broadway debut as a replacement in The Little Mermaid, he went on to originate ensemble tracks in Memphis, Newsies and Motown The Musical (where he played, among other roles, a Temptation!). Prior to his dynamic performance as David Ruffin in Ain’t Too Proud - The Life and Times of The Temptations, he was best well-known on the Main Stem for originating the ensemble role of George Eacker in Hamilton.

Mary Testa

An unequivocal Broadway powerhouse, Mary Testa has played many of Broadway’s musical indelible leading women, including Madame Morrible in Wicked and Matron “Mama” Morton in Chicago. However, almost thirty years before earning a Tony nomination for playing Aunt Eller in Oklahoma!, Testa made her debut in Barnum, covering Terri White before moving into the show’s ensemble.
