Lexi Hubb grew up in York, PA and started participating in community theatre when she was 8 years old. She performed in shows with various community theatres and her high school before going on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts from Towson University, focusing specifically on directing. Lexi moved to New York City and worked with many theatre companies. In early 2011, Lexi moved to Chincoteague and founded the Chincoteague Island Theatre Company to rejuvenate the island’s art scene. The theatre produces plays, holds workshops, and is already planning for this summer’s season of 3rd Thursday Theatre.
I am currently a 7th grade U.S. History teacher at Arcadia Middle. In addition to being a teacher, I am also very involved in sports at the school serving as the Head Boy’s Basketball Coach. I have never acted before, but have always had an interest in both drama and film. I am engaged to the lovely Shelly Emerson, who surprisingly plays the role of Mrs. Bradman, my wife, in the Blithe Spirit. Recreationally, I am a huge workout buff, history buff, I enjoy soaking up all of the beauty nature has to offer on the Eastern Shore, and of course spending time with all of my fiancé and our dog!
I'm from the lovely Eastern Shore. My little career in acting has consisted of small roles in independent films featuring IMDb credits. I have a degree in Business Management, and I am currently employed at Midway Toyota, specializing in Internet Sales. I have two small businesses, Shells Beach Beads and Organizing Shells located on Chincoteague Island, VA. Additionally, I will soon be married to a great PA guy! I have a little Chihuahua/Rat terrier, Chai, who keeps me busy with her spunk! My nephew Camden was born this month, and it’s my first time being an Aunt! Finally, my fiancé’, family, and friends are what makes my life wonderful!

Cindy Faith-Oehm 's first memories were traveling with her family on the Carni circuit. This experience led to a complete love for the theatrical. Cindy's first major role was playing Ishmael in the 1956 theatrical release of Moby Dick. This success led to many other roles that highlighted her ability to immerse herself into characters. She starred as John Malkovick in Being John Malkovick and was the left foot in My Left Foot. The heartbreak of Daniel Day Lewis winning the Academy Award for Cindy's performance led to her return to Chincoteague . Performing in Blithe Spirit marks Cindy's first return to theater since leaving the Hollywood scene.
