Meet the Troupe!
Jaime Queen - Owner & Director
Jaime is the founder of VCF, and the general Master-of-All-That-is-Vaudeville.
While attending school in New York City, she became involved in improv-based groups Improv Everywhere and Urban Madness. They introduced her to a new world in performing. Upon returning to Central Florida, she brought with her the driving need to share her passion for creating art in one of its most natural forms. Thus, Vaudeville was born!
When not attempting to wrangle performers with VCF, Jaime enjoys spending time with her husband and puppies, acting, writing, and sleep. Lots of sleep.
A Florida native, Alex got into acting through sheer circumstance and weird odds, and has now been acting for over 5 years. He has appeared in numerous projects during that time, including a short film, Modern Love, appearing in the 2016 Florida Film Festival. He is also a graduate from the Master Meisner program at Truthful Acting Studios.
This is Angel. Enough said.
Resident Mermaid/Atlantean, Carl is an artist of all media, a Psychology major at UCF, and is pursuing a career in Alternative Medicine. His true passion is art of any form and his life is a continual performance. Also a trained vocalist, he assists Cristen with the troupe's vocal training. He hopes that you enjoy his sarcastic and dark sense of humor.
*Caution: He is known to bite when provoked.
At the tender age of 12, the heavy realization had set fully upon a crestfallen Christopher - his acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry simply wouldn't be coming. Disheartened and only slightly disillusioned, he set out from his humble roots in the Shire to become a Jedi Master. Then, one fateful day, profound in his studies upon the planet Earth, Destiny struck. A new power began to course through Christopher's veins; a dark power: potent, pure, ancient beyond comprehension...that power...was The Pun....It was from thence on, Christopher swore an oath (in German) to wield this power to its' wurst potential - spreading groans, eye rolls, and knee slaps to the furthest reaches of the multiverse. Obtaining the Circlet of Comedy (+5 to eye rolls) as his crowning achievement.
Cristen, a Master of Awesomeness in training, has recently joined VCF as vocal coach, crew, and bouncer. Please do not walk up behind Cristen and scare her; you might not survive it.
In her spare time, she enjoys crocheting hats for house elves and lightsaber cozies (kinda like a tea cozy, but…not).
Don’t tell her we told you this, but we’re all
scared of her. She bites. Hard.
Dylan has finally decided to embark on his lifelong dream of becoming a mer-person. He occasionally joins us for rehearsal and shows, for which we are eternally grateful, but spends most of his time learning all the wrong ways to pick up mer-chicks, searching the ocean for edibles, and hanging out with his good friend, Patrick.
Jane 'Caramel' Soliman
an Egyptian American actor who's had extensive acting training from
Truthful Acting Studios, training in improv from SAK University, and been
in multiple films, live performances, commercials, and print work. Her
pre-acting/improv background includes the medical and publishing fields, but
she is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work in the entertainment
industry. She'd like to thank Robb Maus and Marco DiGeorge for their
neverending love, support, and wisdom, and Jaime for her vision for Vaudeville
CF and making this happen for all the skilled and hard-working performers
Kimberly is the founder of the now defunct Winter Park Short Story Society which lead her to writing sketch comedies, movie shorts and the forming and performing as the 'other' half of the literary comedy duo Some Girls.
Kimberly cultivated her comedy, improv skills and her altogether 'niceness' from Minneapolis, MN and sharpens her skills daily as a single mother of 2.
Kimberly loves to keep things as short as her stature, as she is active in the Twitter community keeping jokes 140 characters or less. Her work on Twitter's Vines had garnered the attention of Comedy Central.
Mackenzie Martinez has been involved in the performing arts since she was a young child. She first got into acting when she was in High School and performed in a number of productions. While in school she was part of an invitation only Shakespearean class that gave her the opportunity to perform various lead and supporting roles in some of Shakespeare's most infamous works. During her time at The University of Virginia’s-College at Wise Mackenzie worked closely with the theater department. One of her more prominent roles was as Dracula in the production of Dracula. As a bold casting choice the box office was sold out each night to see a typically male role reversed. As time went on Mackenzie found herself drawn to film. She has played in multiple roles from a strong heroine to a down and out druggie trying to get her life together to a woman in love. Mackenzie is trained in both the Meisner and Strasberg techniques. She most recently trained in Sketch Comedy as well as performed on stage at The Village Theater in Atlanta, Georgia. Mackenzie is extremely grateful for the support of her friends and family in chasing her dreams and acting career. She is looking forward to a long, successful career as a working actress.
have lost Sean. He went out for tacos one night and never returned. He was wearing pajama pants, red and white striped penguine socks, and his "Vote for Trump" t-shirt (we don't judge). If you see him, please let us know. We miss him very much.
