Emily Mulligan Ferry*
Emily thrilled to be returning to Avenue Q for the fourth time at Phoenix Theatre. Most recently at Phoenix Theatre Emily appeared in the Festival of New American Theatre. Emily studied acting at Illinois State University and is a proud member of Actor’s Equity. You may have seen her on valley stages as Mae in The Pajama Game, Meg in Brigadoon, Prudie in Pump Boys and Dinnette’s, Miss Shields in A Christmas Story, Smitty in How to Succeed in Business…, Anna in The Baltimore Waltz, or Sister Robert Anne in Nunsense. Emily has also performed across the continental U.S. and in Alaska. When not onstage, she is always in front of an audience of students at Corona del Sol High School. However, her favorite role is that of mommy to the two sweetest toddlers in the world – Connor and Charlotte! Emily sends lots of love to Jason, her mom and dad, and Kate for supporting her onstage and off!
Pete is absolutely thrilled to be returning to Avenue Q for the 3rd time. In fact, the last time he did a show was this one, that’s how much he loves it. He’s appeared in several shows throughout the valley over the past 22 years. Favorite roles include: Falstaff in Merry Wives of Windsor, Dromio in Comedy of Errors, Jaime in The Last Five Years, Norman in The Boys Next Door. Pete resides in central Phoenix with his two best friends, Lacey and Sydney (his wife and daughter) who support him tirelessly. “Thanks to Robbie and this amazing cast for letting me play again!”
