Saratoga Ballantine recently appeared in "St. Sebastian", directed by Danny DiVito. Favorite roles include appearances on "Frasier", "Bucket and Skinner", and "Phantom of the Paradise", directed by Brian DePalma. She got to take over the lead in "A History of the American Film" at the Mark Taper Forum, and is heard daily as the voice of "Mary Jane" on Fox's "Spiderman" cartoon. Most proud of having completed the documentary Dea Lawrence. It is currently making the film festival circuit here and abroad, and is dedicated fondly to the memory of the memory of her wonderful Father, Carl Ballantine. And of course, Saratoga is also starring in the film short "TRACES OF MEMORY."

Maray Ayres is a multi-talented lady whose acting credits range from comedy to drama in film and theatre while adding musical theatre, as well, with her impressive vocal range. Her operatic voice lent itself to the role of Lucy Brown in "Three Penny Opera" in Houston, TX as well as the Theatre West production in Los Angeles. She was a huge success in her one woman Cabaret show "This Is The Moment." Some of her vast TV film credits include "The Will Smith Special", "ICarly", "General Hopspital", and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." A few of her film credits include "The Russian Godfather", "Mom", and the newly released suspense thriller "Poe" playing a deranged mother. And of course starring in the film short "TRACES OF MEMORY."
