cast and crew :: Alina Phelan
Alina Phelan has been involved in theatre for over 18 years. She is a graduate of California Institute of the Arts, and a founding member of the improv group Those Meddling Kids, which has performed in Los Angeles, Arizona, and Edinburgh throughout the last 7 years.

She worked at Dreamworks on the animated feature Shrek 2 as assistant to the directors, as well as contributing various voices to the film. Currently she is working on the feature The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as assistant to the director. As well as being involved in the development of the script, casting, and rehearsing, she is also heavily involved in post-production and editorial.

Theatre is her first love, especially the classics. As an actor she has played Hamlet, which earned her a Garland Award for best performance as well as best production in 2003. Other favorite roles include Lady Macbeth, Masha in The Seagull, Miranda in The Tempest, Olivia in Twelfth Night, Celia in As You Like It, among others. A huge fan of the classics, she is also quite fond of bringing new and experimental theatre to light. One of her favorite roles was playing Little B in the Los Angeles hit Yellow Flesh/Alabaster Rose, in which she portrayed a girl who thought she was the Icelandic singer Bjork.

She has been a member of Theatre of NOTE in Hollywood since 1999 and has performed in, written, and directed over 13 plays in that time. She directed Regret, Women Are the Weaker Sex, and Trust Fund Rebels in NOTE's Late Night series. She co-directed Drift with Phil Ward. She plans to direct Three Sisters this year, by one of her favorite playwrights, Anton Chekhov. It has been a lifelong goal to capture the humor, realism, and complexity of his well written characters.
