Introducing our Director and Stage Manager Team:

Heidi Neill:

Heidi Neill has been involved in the theater since 1992 when she was 12 years old. She continued to act throughout high school, but took a short break to be an adult and left Klamath for a few years. In 2010, when she returned to Klamath, she started volunteering at The Linkville Playhouse right away. In 2012, she directed her first show: an adaptation of Odd and the Frost Giant for Little Linkville’s plays for children; a program she was a founding member of and continues to be a part of to this day. She started working as a part of Ross Ragland’s Tech crew in 2015. Later that year, she  assistant directed You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown on the Ross Ragland Stage. In 2017, she directed Harvey at the Linkville Playhouse her first full length play. In 2020, she was asked to direct The Teen Theatre Program. That year she somehow pulled off directing 20ish teenagers in a trilling production of Puffs during a Pandemic! Squirrel Girl Goes to College is her third Teen Theater production at the Ross Ragland. When she is not at either theater, you can find her at Sky Lakes Medical Center being the Executive Chef. Hanging out with her husband Mark at their favorite haunts around the Basin like Retro Room Records, Nite Owl, or Everybody’s Vintage, or traveling Oregon and hiking.

Alex Burris:
Stage Manager/Assistant Director

Alex is thrilled to be doing Teen Theater again this year. She is starting her second year at KCC. Alex has been a part of the Ragland since she was 6 because her dance shows were held at the theater, until a few years ago. She is currently the Ragland’s unofficial stage manager, and she is loving it. She has recently been getting more and more involved with the education programs such as After School Classes, Teen Theater and the Summer Camp programs. She is loving it!
