By David Auburn {} Directed by Lucy Pearce
A WCTeen Blackbox Production
Thursday, May 12 - Sunday, May 22
For Mature Audicences - Recommended Ages 13+

Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert. When he dies she has more than grief to deal with: there's her estranged sister, Claire, and Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that Robert left behind. And a further problem: how much of her father's madness (or genius) will Catherine inherit? This Pulitzer Prize-winning play opened at the Donmar Warehouse in 2001.

Meet the Company

Proof is the first show, in WCT's new location, for which our high schoolers had to audition to participate. Each year we will continue this tradition with our second blackbox production of the year, casting not only our actors and understudies, but stage managers, assistant directors and crew members as a true theater company. Actor Headshots by Lucy Brown, Lucy B Photography.

Sabrina Carey (Stage Manager, Robert Understudy) is 14 years old, in 9th grade at South Whidbey High School. She was recently seen in the previous blackbox theater play The Mousetrap and was stage crew in Inside Frampton and the Outside World. Some of her pastimes involve singing, reading, and writing. Sabrina would like to dedicate this production to my director Lucy Pearce who gave me the opportunity to perform in this play.


Miranda Cassée (Claire) is 16 years old and attends South Whidbey High School. She has been involved with Whidbey Children's Theater for 10 years, and has played many parts over the years. Some of her favorites are Margot in The Diary Anne Frank, Amelia Earhart in Chamber Music, and Sergeant Trotter in The Mousetrap. She would like to thank her dad for always supporting her in all her crazy endeavors and for always being a good spirit. She would like to dedicate this show to Prince.  


Kareena DeCclercq (Assistant Director, Robert Understudy), age 15, is a Freshman at South Whidbey High School. Her interests include art, singing, being a girl scout and most of all being included in the Whidbey Children's Theater, however she spends most of her free time doing homework . She would like to thank Andy Grenier for all that he taught her in Second Sunday seminars. She would also like to thank her director Lucy Pearce for giving her the opportunity to be the assistant director for this production and for having faith in her to understudy as Robert and for the continuous support and encouragement.


Libby Rose Hawkins (Robert), age 16, has been doing theater for about ten years now, and has played a wide array of roles—a crab, Amelia Earhart, and even a talking teapot! Now she gets the honor of playing Robert in this wonderful show. "I want to dedicate this show to nine- sometimes ten- very special beings in my life. I've never felt more in touch with all of you until I began embodying this role, and I couldn't have asked for a more appropriate time for it to happen. I love all of you. I'm glad you'll all be here for every performance, showing yourself through my emotions. Robert and I share a common trait and I'm glad I had the opportunity to play him. "


Kade Petty (Hal) is 16 years old and is attending SWHS. The last show he was in was The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie where he played Giles Ralston. His interests include baseball, football and playing pranks on his unsuspecting friends. He would like to thank his parents for being so supportive.


Skye Telleen Maguire (Catharine), age 17, is currently attending South Whidbey High School. She has been participating in WCT shows since the age of eight. Past performances include Alice in Alice in Wonderland, Antigone in Antigone (with Island Shakespeare Festival’s CCYA 2015), and most recently Glory in SWHS Drama Club’s production of Almost, Maine. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in this incredible play. Enjoy the show!
