JUSTIN ROSS (Spooky) was last seen dancing the title role in the children's show Harlequin, presented by the Theatre Dance Collection at Clark Center. He's appeared with this company in numerous concerts and has also danced with the Houston Ballet Company. This past summer he appeared in Applause, Camelot and The Rothschilds at the North Shore Music Theater in Massachusetts. He graduated from the High School of Performing Arts in 1972 where he was trained in ballet, modern, jazz, Spanish and East Indian dance. However, on the first day of rehearsal of More Than You Deserve Mr. Ross put on a pair of tap shoes and has since vowed never to take them off.

RONALD SILVER (Chet Eastacre) was born in a log cabin on 6th Street and Avenue A on the lower east side. At a party held for him eight days later, the mohei predicted big things to come. While waiting for fame and fortune, he taught Spanish in high school, attended law school for one day, did social work, received an M.A. in Chinese history and language, travelled around the word and soda jerked. He starred in Papa Pepe Hernandez in El Grande De Coca Cola before making his triumphant return to the neighbourhood at the age of 27 in the New York Shakespeare Festival productions of Lotta or The Best Thing Evolution's Ever Come Up With as the Mafia God. Other New York appearances include, Kasper, Public Insult, Iz She Izzy and the City Center Instant Theater. He also spent a season performing with the Williamstown Theater Company. He studied with Lee Strasberg and Uta Hagen. His favourite food is suprême de volaille and he sleeps in a queen-size bed in the nude.

DALE SOULES (Vietnamese) began her professional career at the ripe old age of 14, as an apprentice at the Barn Theatre in Augusta, Michigan. She went on to play leading roles in Oklahoma, Oliver, A Taste Of Honey, The Glass Menagerie and Brigadoon. Off-Broadway she was seen in A View From the Bridge, The World of Gunter Grass, The Mad Show and two works-in-progress at Lincoln Center's Forum Theater — Booth Is Back In Town and Cassiopaya. On Broadway she played Jeanie in Hair for 1½ years and went on to Dude which lasted a somewhat shorter time. Most recently she appeared in the title role in the New York Shakespeare Festival production of Lotta, A Circle of Sound at the Manhattan Theater Club and as understudy for William Hickey who was playing a senile 80-year old woman in Siamese Connections. As fate would have it, she went on in that role.

EDWARD ZANG (Maddox) has been seen in New York in Saul Bellow's Last Analysis at the Circle in the Square, as Harold in Boys in the Band and as the Dauphin in St. Joan opposite the late Diana Sands. At the Chelsea Theater he appeared in Heathcote Williams' AC/DC and The Reliquary of Mr. and Mrs. Potterfield for which he received an Obie for Distinguished Performance. Mr. Zang has played at major repertory and regional theaters in roles ranging from Charley's Aunt to Hamlet (at the Charles Playhouse, in Boston, of which he was the co-founder). In 1967 he toured Europe in Emperor Jones opposite James Earl Jones. Recently he appeared as Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Tyrone Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis. Last summer he appeared as Duke Frederick in the New York Shakespeare Festival production of As You Like It.
