Art. Life. Education. Entertainment.

Felicity is making her debut as Veronica Sawyer after a long break from theatre. This is her first show with Maricopa Community Theatre, and already the excitement and friendships she’s found with this company have completely reignited her passion for the theatrical arts. She could not be more grateful to have such a wonderful group to get back into theatre with. Past acting credits include: Five years of Camp Broadway at ASU Gammage, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Legally Blonde, Side Show, Seussical, Narnia, and Aladdin. 

Greetings and salutations! The name’s Finley Faye, Fin for short. I’m 21 years old. I’ve lived in Maricopa, Arizona just about my entire life alongside my mom, my younger brother, and our two dogs. When I first discovered Heathers: The Musical at roughly 14 years old. I immediately knew nothing could ever possibly top it’s #1 place in my angst filled teenage heart. I also knew then and there that JD would always be my #1 dream role. Aside from some childhood theater, this is my first opportunity to participate in a Maricopa Community Theater production. To say I am thrilled to be a part of this is an understatement if you ask me. I can’t thank MCT enough for giving me this extremely meaningful opportunity to check this dream role off my bucket list. I also can’t thank my beloved mom enough for supporting my childhood dream of wanting nothing more than to be a musical serial killer. I’m DYING to give a KILLER performance that’s guaranteed to be the BOMB. ;•)

These last couple of months have been the best thing for her. She has had so much fun with this production.

Fen has always loved theater but has rarely been a participant. His first show was Music Man, when he was 8 years old, where he played Gracie Shinn. Then, at 10 years old, he was in “That’s Entertainment,” a selection of songs from 5 shows. At 11, he joined Maricopa Community Theater for their 5-year anniversary show, which was also a sampling of songs from many different shows. Then, life happened, and he became too busy for theater. In the meantime, he practiced acting by playing (a lot of) D&D and never stopped singing. 9 years later, he’s ready to puts those skills to the test with the first show of his adult life.

Jullian Deegan is 17 and a soon to be senior in high school. He has been in countless other MCT productions as well as MCYT productions such as Ensemble in In The Heights, Wickersham 3 in Seussical, and a Babkak in Aladdin Jr, and many more. He is very excited to add Heathers to the list.
