The Production Team Leadership:

Suki Peters - Director

Recently awarded the 2013 MasterMind Award by the Riverfront Times for her Outstanding Artistic Achievements in St. Louis as both actor and director, Suki has a long history of notable work in St. Louis and Los Angeles.  She received national attention and critical acclaim for her stage adaptation of Trey Parker's, Cannibal! The Musical (a remount of which is in the works).  Additionally, she has received several professional theater award nominations for her stage work both in St. Louis and LA.  Past directing projects include: The Hothouse (West End Player's Guild); Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged (St. Louis Shakespeare); and Stupefy!

Emily Hatcher - Assistant Director/Stage Manager

Emily began her theater career in 2004 with Stray Dog Theatre.  Since then, she has continued to make her way through the St. Louis theater and dance communities, including as stage manager with St. Louis Shakespeare, Magic Smoking Monkey and St. Louis Actors' Studio.  Emily has been the resident Stage Manager for the Working Women's Survival Show since 2008, and the Stage Manager and a Company Dancer for the African Dance Company Afriky Lolo for the past two years. She received her Associate’s Degree in Theatre from St. Louis Community College - Meramec, and her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production from Webster University in 2010.

Emily was accepted in the Stage Manager competition at America College Theatre Festival in 2006, and received an ACTF Irene Ryan nomination in 2007 for her role in Lysistrata.  During her time at Webster she co-wrote and directed two films, Oranges and Acorn Theory,  both of which were accepted into the St. Louis filmmakers showcase, with Acorn Theory winning best comedy short.  Oranges has also been presented in the St. Louis International Film Festival and the Macon Film Festival in Georgia.  Emily is very excited to be a part of The November Theater Company’s inaugural production.

Jason Townes - Scenic Design

Jason's artistic interests first led him to the theater 20 years ago.  He has more recently collaborated with many groups, including Act II Theatre (The Mousetrap,Sweeney Todd), Aliyah Theatre Company (The Sunshine Boys), and a Jefferson City production of Songs for a New World, working on scenic design, painting and other technical elements.  Outside of theatrical set design, Jason's artistic pursuits center on ceramics and the ukulele.  While Jason's interests lead him from media to media, he always finds himself at home working on a show, perhaps due to collaborating toward a shared vision with other artists, or maybe just because it provides him a firm deadline.  Jason holds a BA in Studio Art from the University of Texas - Austin, and an MAT in Art Education from Lindenwood University.

Russell Warning - Light Design

Variety is the spice of life for Bradley University graduate and lighting designer Russell Warning.  As the director of the Etta & Joseph Miller Performing Arts Center, he's lit the full gamut of varied events, from school concerts to large musicals, touring concerts to Presidential press events.  In his spare time, he moonlights as a roadie and lighting designer for his husband Christopher's party anthem cover band, Five Turn Knot.  Russell is thrilled to finally have the opportunity to light a Sondheim show.

​Dustin Allison - Producer

Dustin has acted, sung and, very rarely, done something approximating dance in theatrical productions for over 20 years.  After returning to Missouri from the east coast, Dustin has performed in a variety of productions with theaters in the St. Louis and mid-Missouri areas.  Stage highlights include: Take Me Out (Mason); The Drowsy Chaperone (Man in the Chair); Avenue Q ​(Nicky/Tele); and Songs for a New World (Man 2).  Dustin is very excited to support this production and commits to never producing or performing in Cats​ as long as he lives.
