Blythe Renay

Blythe began dancing at age 2, and instantly fell in love with the stage. She was performing in musicals by the time she was 8 years old, which is also when she began vocal training. Over the next 15 years, she performed in over 40 professional, community, and school productions. Some of her favorite roles include "Audrey" in Little Shop of Horrors, "Janet" in The Rocky Horror Show, and "Squeaky Fromme" in Assassins.

In 2007, she joined a comedy group spoofing Shakespeare at renaissance festivals. Before long, they had expanded to nerd conventions, which led her to co-founding a nerd-core comedy group in 2010 with three other comedians, called The Damsels of Dorkington. After releasing a parody of Katy Perry's I Kissed a Girl, entitled I Kissed a Nerd, the group leveraged the little bit of notoriety they found online to perform parody songs and improv comedy at conventions around the country. Five years later, they still enjoy performing annually at GenCon in Indianapolis, IN.

Blythe returned to musical theatre in 2014 when she was cast as Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie at the Conejo Players Theatre near Los Angeles, CA. She was later awarded Outstanding Lead Performance - Female by the Four Star Theatre Alliance for her portrayal of Millie.

Blythe regularly models for fine art photographer, Katrin Auch Photography. In her spare time, she enjoys swing dancing (lindy hop) and juggling dangerous objects. She is a fan of Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Doctor Who, Halo, Borderlands, Portal (duh!), Bioshock, Sailor Moon, Dance Central, Jonathan Coulton, The Sixth Gun, and Y: The Last Man.

Sean Redman

Sean grew up in the DFW area, starting on the violin when he was 5, and shifting his focus to percussion in middle school. While majoring in Percussion Performance at UNT, he performed in numerous internationally renowned ensembles such as the UNT Lab bands, the 14-time world champion 'A' Indoor Drumline, Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corp in DCI, and performed as a soloist with multiple symphonies. After college, he spent a month and a half on the island of Trinidad, performing with the Silver Stars steel drum band, winning the annual Panorama competition that year. 

After getting his teaching certificate and teaching percussion for middle schools and high schools for several years in North Texas, Sean obtained his Masters in Sound Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design, doing post-production SFX and scoring music for film, animation, video games, and other media. 

Upon moving back to North Texas, Sean got the opportunity to play violin for Dallas-based symphonic rock band The Polyphonic Spree. For the last two and a half years, he has toured the world playing shows and festivals across the US, Mexico, Canada, the UK, France, Belgium, South Korea, Australia, and more.

When he's not touring with the Spree, he is teaching percussion at high schools and middle schools in the North Dallas area. Sean has several percussion ensemble and steel band arrangements published with Drop 6 Media.

In addition to percussion and violin, Sean plays the guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, bass, and piano. He is (slightly) obsessed with Coheed and Cambria, Stephen King, Zelda, Mario Kart, zombies, Joss Whedon, and maintaining a perfect 100% Xbox gamerscore.

Sean enjoys doing covers (ESPECIALLY Coheed and Cambria!) and creating unique musical arrangements of popular music. Visit Sean's YouTube channel to check it out!
