TRISH DEBAUN (Scottie) steps out from behind concessions at last to take on her first show with Left Edge and she’s beyond happy! Working with this wonderful cast of talented and dedicated actors truly deepens her gratitude for the performing arts.
She began performing in Sacramento in 1992, when she found her way to Suspects Dinner Theater in Old Town and “My Bloody Valentine” (a breakout hit for sure!). An actor friend told her about other auditions and soon she was off. Her first film role was as the barmaid in Touchstone/Disney’s Phenomenon starring John Travolta. She filmed an opening segment for the California Lottery where she literally threw tons of cash into the air, and several local commercials.. She spent a summer in LA filming Frozen Stars with the wickedly talented Lana Parilla, and music videos for Montgomery Gentry, Fountains of Wayne, and Vampire Cowboys. She studied acting and improvisation with long-time mentor Charlie Holliday, commedia dell’ arte with Evan Nosoff, and New School Acting with Jeremy Whelan (NYC).
During her time in Sacramento she appeared in more than 20 productions including the world premiere of Somebody’s Baby by award winning playwright David Matthew Barnes.
In 2004 she relocated to San Francisco where she studied with Jean Shelton at The Actors Lab and Chris Phillips at Actors Theater San Francisco (ATSF), appearing in several stage productions including God of Carnage, Love Letters, Lovers and Other Strangers, and The Lorca Trilogy, and episodes of I (Almost) Got Away With It and The World’s Most Astonishing News.
Most recently, she has appeared in productions of Lost in Yonkers, Rapture, Blister, Burn, and The Diary of Anne Frank at the Raven Performing Arts Center.
