    In the Orchestra Pit, But That Still Counts

    I've played in South Pacific, Pippin and Beauty and the Beast. Even though our job was to accompany the actors and we weren't on stage, I  felt we were just as much a part of the musical as the actors. I really enjoyed the parts for Beauty and the Beast and South pacific...

    Hello Dolly!

    I was involved with the theater in my high school 3 of my 4 years there.  Of the musicals, I have to say that "Hello Dolly!" was my favorite.Granted, that year the director found that I have two feet, and don't know my left from my right!  She and the choreographer worked and...

    In Grade School

    We did "The Wizard of OZ"  I was a munchkin all we did was sing.  Thats about the extent of my "drama" experience I'm way to stage fright, I barely managed choir standing with other kids in the 9th grade.
