Alex Moore operates out of Dallas, TX. Her MFA in Theatre has given her a wonderful jump into voice acting. If you happen to be an anime fan, you’ve heard her on One Piece (Lola), The Devil is a Part-Timer (Suzuno), 91 Days (Fio Vanetti), Azur Lane (Bismarck and Admiral Hipper), and dozens more! You can also find her in Gearbox’s Borderlands 3!
Local theatre people know Alex for her work with Pegasus Theatre and the Living Black and White series of plays. She’s been there going on eight years for XSR:Die!, Death on Delivery!, and most recently, A Trifle Dead! Which Pegasus produced as a movie to keep engaged with fans during COVID-19.
Alex would like to thank Angela of OSA for letting her come play and help with dialect work. Fun Fact: Alex’s mom also played Van Helsing in a production of Dracula two decades ago!

Katie Ganem (Mrs. Renfield) is excited to (virtually) return to Open Space Arts, her first theatrical home. Katie is a DC based actor, singer, playwright, director, and teaching artist. With Open Space, she has played a variety of roles (including Winnie the Pooh, when she was 10-years-old, and that time she played a chocolate-chip cookie), has written 10 minute plays for their annual Summer Playwright's Festival, directed and produced several shows, and served as Artistic Director from 2012-2015. Before COVID, she helped develop the role of suffragist Alice Paul for the world premiere of 19 the Musical with Through the 4th Wall. You can hear her sing on Spotify by searching for 19 the Musical or check it out on her website, www.katieganem.com. Thanks to my Open Space family for letting me try a cockney accent, to my dog, Lupin, for tolerating all the weird screaming, and to my husband, Joey. I am excited to do this project with you, even if we don't have a scene together.
Joey is excited to be back acting with Open Space Arts again. He has been associated with OSA since 2010 as both an actor and in the technical crew (as it was the only way he would reliably be able to spend time with his now wife, Katie), but he has been unable to act since moving to DC in 2015 to go to medical school. As tough as COVID has been for us all, he is glad that this new virtual environment has given us this unique opportunity to put on a radio play, and to be with the OSA family once again. With OSA, Joey portrayed Apollo, Oberon, Smee, half of an elephant, and has even been eaten by giant spiders, but he is endeavoring to take on his most daring role yet, an Englishman. Thank you to my dog Lupin for giving me such helpful feedback, and to Katie, whom I am so very excited to be acting with again (we have scenes together in my heart).

Felicia Harris has no voice acting experience whatsover, but as a kid dreamed of being a ballerina, madscientist voiceover actor. Specifically for the show "fraggle rock". While incorrectly considered too "shapely" to persue ballet, too intimidated to find out more about voice acting, she opted for Mad Scientist. While not mad, she works as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist and finds that just as good. She was born and raised in East Baltimore City and is the youngest of 5. Having a single mother, she spent lots of time with her grandmother who encouraged her love for reading, which included a lot of fantasy and fairytales. As the baby of the family she didn't have anyone to read to so her grandmother would be the audience, along with her pet hamsters, guinea pigs, and dogs. She always recieved a standing ovation for the performance. She was fascinated by Jim Henson, and his ability to voice not only Kermit the Frog but also The Swedish Chef. As an adult she left the voice acting goal on her bucket list until the oppertunity arose to work with Open Space Arts on their radio broadcast of Dracula. She can't begin to tell you how humbled and honored I am to participate with such an amazing group of actors, and I hope this is the rebirth to a childhood fantasy.
Jessica Horn: Jessica has been involved with Open Space Arts going on 4 years and got drawn in when there was a last-minute audition for the role of Andromeda in a show for the Summer Playwrights Festival.

Jessica is happy to be Co-Directing this production of Dracula, and hope you enjoys the story as told by a wonderful group of talented actors that she has had the pleasure of working with for the past few weeks!
