Keeping Right Team

We met, read, rehearsed, and now perform on Zoom, but our Keeping Right team boasts all the energy and enthusiasm of any stage ensemble. Get better acquainted with the folks who created this preposterous production.

Atticus Cain

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, raised in part in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with his loving Grandparents, Atticus lived in a total of thirty-five states while growing up. His introduction to acting came in 1988, during his junior year of high school, when he was recruited to substitute for a fellow student in a play.

After graduating, he advanced to local theater, appearing in plays ranging from Shakespeare to Guare until he moved to Pittsburgh in 1995. Cain resumed acting with a cameo role on the CBS series “The Guardian” (2002). Since then, he has performed stage and screen roles in multiple cities, including Chicago, Pittsburgh, and New York, Productions include “Wrong Number” (2003), and “The Stranger” (2004) and his own self-written short feature, “Opposition,”

Waters in A Soldier’s Play by Charles Fuller, Dr. George Washington Carver, in Carver at Tuskegee  by Kyle Bass, Alan Beaumont in Deadline, and Dr. Jacob Carter in the original web series Dark Therapy, the story of a therapist who treats supernatural monsters…and a few human ones too. 

Atticus completed conservatory training in July 2017 at the acclaimed Atlantic Acting school
