The members of the Hidden Room wear many hats. The following will attempt to describe some of our technical staff’s varied skills, but cannot hope to quantify the complexity of their contributions.
I stumbled into the Hidden Room some time ago and have been haunted ever since. My piqued interest grew the attention of the Matriarch and her delightful devotees. I am now humbled to fight for funds on behalf of the growing cult of theatrical innovation that is the Hidden Room.
My acting work has recently been surrounded by Shakespeare - directed at the hands of Dr. James Loehlin. My personal passions have lead me to direct and translate Fonvizen's The Adolescent and research the original practices of the Restoration while directing Wycherley's The Country Wife. My non-profit career has stretched from Shakespeare at Winedale to Zach Scot Theatre. I am a proud homosexual, and advocate for all minorities seeking a home. Join us in the Hidden Room.
Kimberley Mead, Photographic Artist My photography blends the magic and emotion of the moment with the medium of photography, capturing not just a record of the event, but a true sense of belonging and place. I draw from my own theater experience and unique way of seeing to create photos of ethereal beauty, which are less documents, and more an extension of the story. My images contain a story in and of themselves that I hope stirs curiosity and unfolds before the viewer.The Hidden Room is a treasure trove of mysterious offerings, from the early modern to the cutting edge. Cultivating a design aesthetic that can accommodate the ambitions and quality of those productions is the duty bestowed on me by the Matriarch, and one that I am honored to perform. I create all the promotional materials for The Hidden Room's productions, as well as the web presence you are currently beholding. In my other life as an actress and filmmaker, I have performed in numerous theatrical endeavors, film projects, national network commercials, and voice over roles. I produced, co-wrote, and acted in The Quiet Girl's Guide to Violence, which is currently enjoying a thriving film festival circuit after our 2012 world-premiere at Fantastic Fest, the largest genre film festival in the US. I also serve as the owner and creative director of award-winning Five and Four Design in Austin, Texas. We create beautiful branding, websites, packaging, and environmental graphics for a wide range of industries.
