Meet the Cast of Gina Young's
Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo

March 11th – 26th!

There are rules in this universe: seventh graders always win dance competitions, lunch table divisions are absolute, and there is only one right way to wear a backpack. In a nostalgia-filled pastiche of early ‘90s pop culture, three storytellers navigate the wilderness of leopard-print leotards and Jane Fonda workout videos as they relive the awkwardness of early sexual awakenings.

The East Coast premier of Gina Young’s Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo thoughtfully – at times hilariously – captures the joy and the torment of adolescence that every kid who’s ever been uninvited from a slumber party knows all too well.
Malari Martin as
Gina

A recent graduate from the Boston Conservatory with a BFA in Musical Theatre, Malari now takes on the role of Gina, a queer writer replaying her past where budding sexually took root. Malari's singing chops will be put to good use in this show packed full of '80s and '90s song and dance.
Julia Alvarez as
Amanda / Brandy

Julia will be playing Amanda, a young femme armed with a kaboodle and a palette of makeup. For the last two years, Julia has been traveling around the country with "Speak About It," a touring company that promotes consent culture and healthy relationships at high schools and universities.
Kathleen C. Lewis as
Seven / Whitney

Kathleen graced the Flat Earth stage last summer as Kathryn Shaub in Radium Girls, and just returned from outer space in Citizens of the Empire by FET cofounder Kevin Mullins with Boston Public Works. Her next portrayal will be Seven, a tomboy whose macking on boys gets her an undeserved reputation.
Katharine Braun-Levine as
Pink Triangle Girl / Eebie / Ann

Katharine steps into the shoes of the Pink Triangle Girl, a whimsical character whose sense of innocence plays against the childish nature and sexual awakenings that the ensemble contends with. Katharine currently dances at The Studio: DCFA, and participates in Brandeis University dance performances.
Leah Carnow as
Tiffany / Penelope

Leah appears in the role of Tiffany, the self-proclaimed leader of a group of dancers obsessed with winning the school talent show. After graduating from Brandeis University, Leah has worked with many regional theatre companies, and also appears as Jenny in the original web series "Staying in Boston."
Micah Greene as
Brittany / Kristy

Flat Earth is thrilled to welcome Micah to the ensemble as Brittany, a young girl who dances to the beat of a different drummer. Her acting credits tout roles in Kimberly Akimbo (Moonbox Productions), Avenue Q (Arts After Hours), and The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus (Wax Wings Productions).
Arielle Kaplan as
Kara / Julie

A jacqueline-of-all-trades, Arielle just wrapped up designing the combat in Boston Public Works's Citizens of the Empire. Now she can be seen acting as Kara, a student whose place in the social ranks is threatened by her unpopular choices in friends, and singing as a number of pop culture personalities.
Arthur Gomez as
Bobby

Arthur makes his Flat Earth debut as Bobby, a student who is wrongly singled out by their teacher for making trouble. Other acting credits include Every Christmas Story Ever Told with Gloucester Stage and I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change with the Firehouse Center for the Arts.
Matt Arnold as
Billy

A Flat Earth regular, Matt has been welcomed back to the stage as Billy, a typically crude preteen boy with a penchant for rewriting song lyrics. Matt has also been a part of the award-nominated productions of Flat Earth's The Memorandum, Terra Nova, and The Farnsworth Invention.
Alex Roy as
Chuck

A newcomer to Flat Earth, Alex takes on the role of Chuck, a lovestruck youngster whose love interest is in a rather different league. Around Boston, Alex has worked with a number of local theatre companies, and most recently assistant directed Scenes from an Adultery with New Repertory Theater.
Lucas Commons-Miller as
Alan

Last seen on the Flat Earth stage serving double duty to bring a colorful assortment of London townspeople to life in Pygmalion, Lucas takes on Alan, a boy whose maturity level matches his age. Lucas is also a go-go dancer at goth club nights, and plays guitar in an industrial band, Triax Coalition.
Mariagrazia LaFauci
Director

Mariagrazia takes the reins of this gaggle of actors pretending to be middle-schoolers. With Flat Earth, she has appeared as the adolescent girl / family matriarch Tricia in the dimension-hopping production of Rocket Man, and she just wrapped up Bach at Leipzig with Flyleaf Theatre in January.
