Noelle Locke

Noelle has worked at the West Valley Playhouse as an actor since 1997 and has been directing musicals and dramas since 2001. In September of this year, Jon Berry (Artistic Director) asked Noelle and Aileen-Marie Scott to lead the West Valley Children's and Family Theatre program (previously run by Marq and Deb Del Monte before they moved out of state) and she couldn't be more thrilled. As an actor, Noelle has trained at Circle in the Square Actors Conservatory in NYC and received her BA from CSUN. She has performed as a featured singer for Pacific Symphony Orchestra's Benefit Gala starring Davis Gaines, lead singer in The American Girl Revue at the American Girl Store as well as for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and is an award-winning actor, director, and choreographer. Regional credits include: Catherine in The Heiress (Artistic Director's Achievement Award-Best Actress), The All Night Strut (NAACP-Best Choreography Award), Irene Livingston in Light Up the Sky, Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, and most recently Gladys in Pajama Game. Noel is a member and co-creator of the all girl singing group The Chantilly Sisters (www.thechantillysisters.com) and is also a new member of The Academy Reperatory Company (ARC) at the Academy of New Musical Theatre. She is currently starring in the upcoming feature film Operation: Belvis Bash (www.belvisbash.com) with her husband Alex Loy and 80's icon Corey Feldman.

Aileen-Marie Scott

Growing up with a director as a father, Aileen has been involved in just about every aspect of theatre during her life. She didn't realize how lucky she was since she thought that every child grew up learning comic timing, hitting your mark, how to find the perfect prop, silence back stage, your crew is your friend, being true to the authors vision, and mostly that theatre deserves respect and 100% of you at all times. She attended California State University Northridge receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre, her concentration on directing and coaching.
 
She has performed at the West Valley Playhouse in the following: Babe in The Pajama Game, Aileen-Marie Chantilly in The Chantilly Sisters and M'Lynn in Steel Magnolias. Other performances include: Momma Rose in Gypsy, Yvonne/Alice in Sunday in the Park with George, Sarah in Quilters (South Bay CLO), Godspell (South Bay CLO), Flemmschen in Grand Hotel (Performance Riverside), Sally Bowles in Cabaret (Curtis Theatre), Chloe in Lips Together, Teeth Apart (Best Actress Award), Sara Jane Moore in Assassins, Mrs. Phagan in the LA Premiere of Parade, Georgie in The Full Monty, Gussie in Merrily We Roll Along, Chairy in Barnum, Beverly in The Shadow Box, Aldonza in Man of La Mancha, Amy in Company and The Bakers Wife as well as the Witch in Into the Woods.
 
She attended the 2005 Cabaret Conference at Yale university, studying with masters such as Sally Mayes, Sharon McNight, Erv Raible, Heather MacRae, Michael Orland, Laurel Massť, Alex Rybeck and Julie Wilson to name a just a few. Life changing.
 
Directorially she has created productions of All My Sons, nominated for an Inland Valley Theatre League Award (ADA) for Best Revival, Company, Gypsy, The Fantasticks, The Crucible, 1776, Hello Dolly and Godspell. She also taught theatre and ran the theatre department at St. Francis High School but had to leave as her performing life became busier.
 
She is especially grateful for the productions of Steel Magnolia's where Jon Berry took a chance on an unknown and cast her as M'Lynn, and The Chantilly Sisters where Aileen and Noelle officially met, and instantly the both knew that they were destined to work more and more together (which they did later that year in Pajama Game). You both have changed my life and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!!!
