Director’s Note:

thesongsfinalWorking with all of these talented people has been a fantastic process.  I directed a similar show a few years back while living in Birmingham, AL and it proved to be a great success – not only was it well-attended, but it also made fast friends of all the folks involved.  That is what community theatre is truly all about, in my opinion:  Creating a show with all of these amazing people, donating their time, energy and voices and creating friendships that may not have otherwise been forged.

Musical theatre has been a part of my life for a very long time – it all started with my 3rd grade music teacher pulling me out of class and asking me to perform “Where is Love” from Oliver in the school talent show – that experience addicted me for life.  I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to pull all of these people together to explore the many facets of musical theatre.  You’ll notice that there is a lack of set pieces, costumes and props – this show is about the performers themselves, first and foremost.  They are the artists, the paint and the canvas.  Enjoy the show and thanks again for supporting live theatre and the performing arts!
