Shannon Noel is an ex-stay at home mom of two boys still in diapers. She returned to work a year ago for her amazing boss, the late Gil Cates at the Geffen Playhouse. She is now the Artistic Coordinator there and dedicates each day to the memory of Gil; who until his very last day followed his artistic dreams with passion, grace and an incredible sense of humor, never forgetting that family always comes first. Shannon is a graduate of the Second City and has performed sketch and improv all over Los Angeles and the internet. She is an original contributor to the online magazine Mad As Hell Club where she co-wrote, along with her friend Angela Kurian, the Almost Hot column. She has been seen on stage with Expressing Motherhood and, when she is not playing dinosaurs or peeling the skins off of grapes, she writes for her own blog Lullabies For Mommy. She has a two person show with Stacie Burrows called I’m Not From Here But My Kids Are; a comical look at raising kids in Los Angeles. Shannon hails from Kentucky and stays close to her roots by listening to classic country music and never taking off her Tony Lamas. She is overjoyed to have so many men in her life; her gorgeous Southern husband, their 110 pound Old English Sheepdog and their two adventurous boys who constantly remind her what life is all about: soccer, urine and laughter!
