Training in photography, martial arts, dance, and some general stunt work, Samantha’s comedic timing and ability to brighten any stage is her biggest strong suit.

Elizabeth Behner is so beyond thrilled to be a part of these two amazing productions! She had the honor of directing the Carrollwood Player Theatre’s production of The Vagina Monologues in 2017 (which featured our amazing creator and director of these phenomenal shows, Deborah Bostock-Kelley). This experience encouraged her to seek out productions that are unafraid and unapologetic to talk about topics that some may avoid. She has directed, been on stage as an actress, stage managed, and photographed numerous community theatre productions in the Tampa Bay area over the past 6 years. In real life, she is a public-school high school counselor in New Port Richey, FL, and is blessed with family and friends who always encourage her artistic endeavors. Thank you, Deb, for allowing her to be a part of the #NOTONEMORE journey. This experience will always hold an extremely special place in her heart.
Kym Welch has been performing in Tampa community theatre since 2012. She has had loads of fun in varied roles at Powerstories, Carrollwood Players, New Tampa Players, and West Coast Players. from the blood-hungry plant in Little Shop to a tough mother in Doubt. Whatever it is, she just enjoys being onstage and entertaining an audience.
Amy C. Ragg is an artist, actor, director, writer, and teacher. She has been honored to inhabit the character of Rose as her story grew and developed from a ten minute one act to the full length production you see today. She is grateful beyond words for Deb’s trust and dedication to her craft. She has been in education since long before active shooter drills were a part of every students’ experience and still believes we can find a way to bring an end to the gun violence in this country. Thank you to Mama Ragg and all of the strong women who have loved, nurtured, and supported her in her journey, especially over the last year. She dedicates this performance to her father who believed fiercely in the power of this show and who, now, will always have the best seat in the house. Blaze on, Daddy!

Amy C. Ragg believes so fiercely in the power of words to generate compassion that she told Deb she would clean the bathrooms, if she had to, just to be part of this show at its inception as a ten minute entry in the Tampa Bay Theatre Festival. Deb, instead, gave her the part of Rose. Joining the directing team now is a gift of trust that she aspires to be worthy of every day. We hear the stories of the shooters, the survivors, the hashtags, but how often do we really connect to the people behind the hashtags? It is Amy’s most fervent hope to help all of us, cast, crew, and audience find empathy and compassion for these beautifully written characters. May we see things through new eyes and help ensure that in our world there is truly #notonemore. Peace & Love
