Commando was formed in April 2007 as a house team at the Magnet Theater. They performed as part of Megawatt, a showcase of the Magnet's resident ensembles, until their official retirement in August 2008. Commando's original lineup featured Jesse Acini, Patrick Daly, Elizabeth Findlay, Jamie Marrs, Leanne Linsky, Ryan Stratton, Lauren Olson and Jed Teres. In time Teres, Stratton and Daly departed to pursue stand-up, LA and producing award winning Broadway shows respectively. In Fall 2007 Linsky was re-cast on newer Magnet team Yum Yum Bangkok. At that time Dave Etkin, Taylor White and Chris Harwood were added to the cast. In early 2008 Nick Zimmerman completed Commando's cast.
