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.

"Bobby & Ashley are collaborative, creative, prepared, organized and passionate." -Daniel DP Sheridan; Artistic Director Junior Theatre INC.

and we're off -

always a wild ride!

2020 has obviously been a crazy year!!

This spring we were both supposed to be returning to Circa '21! Bobby rehearsed all the way through one day of tech for Saturday Night Fever. Ashley cast both Grace for President  and Seussical as Director and Choreography, but both productions were postponed, and this summer we were scheduled to be appearing as Lumiere and Babette in Disney's Beauty and the Beast!

But the universe had other plans...

Once the theatre was able to open back up a bit this summer, we partnered with Circa '21 to launch Rising Stars, an advanced theatre education program for middle and high school students. After a successful summer intensive, we've announced our fall class series. You can learn more about it here!

In August, we produced some exciting projects in the Circa '21 Speakeasy. We had a blast working with local performers from several area theatres to create Broadway Backwards: a miscast cabaret, and we also donned our cowboy hats and performed our updated Rapunzel in the Wild West.

This September we returned to teaching at Davenport Junior Theatre, this time, virtually, and will also mentor directors for their upcoming Zoom! A New Play Festival. 

If all continues as planned, and at this point, who can say, we'll be back on the Circa '21 mainstage this holiday season as married couple Greg and Jan in their premier of Winter Wonderland, and Ashley will be directing and choreographing Seussical for their TYA series.

We're both currently available for contracts in 2021! If you're interested in collaborating with us as performers, creators, or educators, send a message here!
