Join Steven Eddy Pepper and pianist Christopher T. Miller as they present an evening of Stories, Song and Self in Let go, Let Fly.
Steven Eddy Pepper grew up here, in North County San Diego, and took his first bow on the Star Theatre stage. After cultivating his skills in Coast Kids Theatre (playing such roles as the Artful Dodger in Oliver!, Rolf in The Sound of Music and the Prince in Cinderella), interning and assisting at the Star, he returned in his adulthood to bring to life to such roles as Anthony in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Cain and Japheth in Children of Eden. He has since gone on to perform on stages across the world, from as close as Orange County to as far as Paris and Tokyo with the Walt Disney Company, and even virtually! Nevertheless, he always finds himself back home at the Star Theatre!
Christopher T. Miller is always thrilled to work at the historic Star - it's both a great physical venue and a welcoming community, deeply talented in every department. Chris has been seen on stage at the Star in Children of Eden (Adam / Noah), Catch Me if You Can (Hanratty), and Sweeney Todd (Sweeney), and is excited to move to the piano bench and collaborate again with some of his favorite people.

Her other theater credits include Luisa Contini (Nine), Adelaide (Guys & Dolls), Betty (The Great American Trailer Park Musical), Mary Magdalene (JCS), Diana Goodman (Next to Normal), The Baker’s Wife (Into the Woods), Kate (Lippa’s Wild Party), Helen Bechdel (Fun Home), Mrs. Walker (The Who’s Tommy), Heathers, Songs for a New World, Urinetown, Ragtime, Avenue Q, Godspell and Les Mis. Next, Keri will play Cathy Hiatt in The Last Five Years at OB Playhouse. Love to her talented hubby Chris and her phenominal family: Go Red Sox! She’s so delighted to work again with Schultz at the Star, and looks forward to “turning and burning” with theater friends real soon. We’ll be back; Let it fly!
Christopher T. Miller (continued from above) Other favorite credits from around town, the internet, and/or the world include: Chess (The American), Next To Normal (Dan / music director), Jesus Christ Superstar (Judas, Jesus), Nine (Guido / music director), The Last Five Years (Jamie / music director), two different touring productions of Evita, and everything he's ever done with his wife Keri. Outside the theater, Chris dabbles, to varying degrees, in software engineering, gaming, audio production, piano tuning, graphic novels, pet telepathy, and beatbox. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your support of theater - the arts are a spark of inspiration in so many lives, and have recently become both harder and more important than ever.
