Your go-to for theatre for young audiences that is: smart, approachable, artistic, and FUN!


Hey there!

A story as unique as its characters...

We met in South Korea in 2012, working as Edutainers at Gyeonggi English Village (now English Musicals Korea), where we honed our skills as actors and creators. In Korea we performed in 11 shows together, and since returning to the U.S. in the summer of 2014, have continued that pattern, with our joint contracts in the double digits. We've also launched our own TYA company WhatFun! Theatre, which strives to bring quality family friendly productions to communities around the country. As both performers and creators, we pride ourselves on providing not only a quality product, but a quality experience, bringing our positivity, can-do attitudes, open-minds and hearts, and spirit of blissful collaboration to every process. While we do accept separate projects, we truly believe we are #bechertogether, and prioritize joint contracts. We hope you enjoy a glimpse into our little world.

What's new on our wild ride?

2024 has already been so full!

We started the year off celebrating some friends in NYC, and seeing many shows, and it's been non-stop since, but we've been so lucky to get to do most of our projects together!!

Ashley Directed and Choreographed, and Bobby was Music Director for Finding Nemo Jr. at Davenport Junior Theatre. They were then THRILLED to once again work on Beauty and the Beast for one of their favorite places, North Scott High School! 

After a hiatus, Ashley returned to the stage in the premiere of the 60 minute version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid where she and Bobby are having so much fun as the male and female authority figures.

Bobby is currently checking another dream role off the list, playing Bob Gaudio in Jersey Boys. Ashley Choreographed, and was Associate Director to Michael Ingersoll.

What's coming up?

This July, we're both honored to return to Little Theatre on the Square in School of Rock.

Ashley has signed on for 3 more years as Artistic Director for Junior Theatre Inc. and is excited to lead their final season at the Annie Wittenmeyer Complex.

The end of August, Ashley will dive into the dark side, directing and choreographing The Addams Family back at Circa '21.
