Meredith Bell Alvarez has been with Signal Ensemble since season one. She first appeared onstage with Signal as Hero in their 2003 production of Much Ado About Nothing. Meredith next appeared in Signal’s 2004 critically acclaimed rendition of Joseph Heller's Catch-22 in which she played five different characters including Luciana, Nurse Duckett, Nately's Whore, Mrs. Daneeka, and an Investigating Officer. Other Signal credits include Constance Neville in She Stoops to Conquer, Emma Hale in Ballad of the Sad Café, Cynthia Muldoon in The Real Inspector Hound, Diane Renfeld in Ronan Marra’s Motion, Toasty in Princes of Waco, and Janet in Jon Steinhagen’s Successors. Other Chicago credits include Rosalind in As You Like It, Titania/Hippolyta in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Rosaura in Life Is a Dream, Olivia in Twelfth Night, The Chorus in Medea, Hisperia in As You Like It, Stephanie in Losing Rachel, Elizabeth Almond in The Heiress, and Vincentio in The Taming of the Shrew. Meredith is a graduate of Northwestern University where she majored in theatre and history. During her summer breaks from Northwestern, she trained in Europe with The London Academy of Theatre. When not working on a Signal production, you will most likely find Meredith creating any number of invitations for her booming design business or chasing after her incredibly active toddler, Josiah. And if there is any time left in the day, she occasionally tries to catch up with her amazing husband, David.
