THE TROUPE

RUBY MARKER

est. 2018

Ruby does NOT have bangs because of a mental breakdown, but because she is scared of her forehead. She is directing the troupe this year- PLEASE no eye contact.

JT GARCIA

est. 2018

Born at a young age, JT Garcia spent the early years of his life being indoctrinated into the cult of Texas. Once he realized he was too short to be in the NBA, he decided to dedicate his life to the artistic study and relentless pursuit of acting. He somehow ended up in a College Sketch Comedy troupe instead. His greatest fear is being cast in an erectile disfunction ad, and his greatest dream is being cast as the guy who just can’t seem to clean the kitchen without making a mess in an informercial. He would like to thank his parents for making him better looking than his older brother. He hopes you come see the shows, follows the Suspenders on Instagram and Tik Tok, and hopes he is remembered for always walking that fine line between funny and pitiful. XOXO, Gossip Garcia.

DESTINEE MCCASTER

est. 2019

In love with Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron BUT NOT IN A WEIRD WAY.

ALEX HONEY

est. 2019

Alex is an Australian with a heart of gold searching for that big break in the city of Angels. The road has been tough but Alex is gonna persevere through the help of his friends and animal sidekick, a bonobo named Susan. Once Alex almost let the success get to his head. He became lost in the ritz and glamour of fame, and almost risked alienating himself from his friends and Susan. But luckily he was able to rediscover that young Aussie boy with a dream and stay true to who he is. This conflict came to a head when Alex abandoned the techno-pop image his label had forced onto him and delivered an original acoustic rendition of his hit single to the stadium audience. A clear symbol that he hasn’t lost sight of who he is. God bless America.

ADELE MARCHENKO

est. 2019

Adele is the pride and joy of the Suspenders. She is the bestest. No, Adele did not write this. This was written by the other members who just adore Adele so much they had to put into words here. Please don’t take this down.

ANNIE GARRETSON

est. 2019

Annie cannot eat bread, so she’s exactly as annoying as you’d think.

ARTURO FERNANDEZ

est. 2020

Arturo is..... doing well, how are you? He is a stage management student and producer for the Suspenders. He will also leave you in suspense about his other credentials as he doesn't like talking in the third person. Rather, feel free to see his website at https://jrfernandezarturo.wixsite.com/sminfo to find out who he is and how to hire him.

CLARE LARSEN

est. 2021

Clare purchased 25 pounds of beans today...How many did you purchase?

MAYA GARDNER

est. 2021

Maya Gardner is your totally normal college kid! Nothing weird about her! She is not a part of the Witness Protection Program! She definitely doesn’t have ties to prolific mafia groups that were NOT involved in the disappearance of your great grandfather! She is not several lizards in a skin suit! None of these things are true! Please stop saying them about her!

NIA BAKER

est. 2021

Nia’s only personality traits include being from DC, unironically listening to Unwritten in the rain, and giving elaborate house tours

RAE WEISS

est. 2021

Rae is not afraid of bees. She is allergic, but like, if she dies she dies you know?

TREVOR VANAUKEN

est. 2021

Oh hey, didn’t see you there! Trevor VanAuken is a Texan who loves long walks on the beach. He’s a first grade teacher on weekend mornings and a velociraptor enthusiast at night. On occasion he lends his silky baritone voice to the Trojan Men A Cappella group. As a kid he planned on making a career out of Minecraft streaming but decided to invest in his practical backup plan of sketch comedy! That’s where the REAL money is, Trevor said.

XAVIER VALDEZ

est. 2021

Xavier Valdez is, in fact, a boy who can do both. He's not quite sure what "both" are, but he assures you he CAN do them, and will do them at a level of quality you find at least mildly adequate.

ASHER WOLF

est. 2021

Is investing his tuition money into DogeCoin

ALEX NIMROD

est. 2021

Alex’s favorite after school hobby? Building a better community. Alex’s favorite snack? The fruits of his labor. Number of times Alex has sung “Hey There Delilah” to his second grade crush? I don’t know man why would you even ask that? Now you know who this jokester really is: just a boy with a lil bit of that good good T spirit. Fight on everybody!

MADDI MORAN

est. 2021

At a young age, Maddi knew she wanted to be a lawyer… but when she found out that was too impractical, she decided to go a more realistic approach: sketch comedy. Unfortunately, she had to split genes with her twin brother, so she’s about 1/2 as funny as she could be (thanks Alex). But what she lacks in potential she makes up for in spirit. Maddi owns way too many overalls (three pairs to be exact), but has finally upgraded her outfits to Suspenders!!

JT WAUGH

est. 2021

jt. jt #2. JUNIOR. jota te. jon taylor. whatever you may call him, loves ramen, burritos, mint gum and that amazing feeling when you laugh so hard it looks like you just got botox and are chocking on air.

IZZY STER

est. 2021

Izzy Ster is a writer for the Suspenders, even though she exclusively communicates with shark Animojis. She is overly dependent on Trader Joe’s employee validation and caffeine (in that order).  In her free time, she can often be found staring at ceilings/contemplating her existence, eating fruit snacks, and reading classical literature (e.g., Harry Potter for the 11th time).

VINCENT DEMONTE

est. 2021

Vincent. A man of many of many talents that will always make you leave with a smile.

JOSH WOLK

est. 2021

Josh used to be an avid reader. He thinks about this a lot.

LEXA ORNES

est. 2022

Alexandra is addicted to Dr. Pepper! That’s not a joke! It’s crippling and it has ripped apart her family! She lost her children in the custody battle because of it!
