After 15 years and over 20 productions and 25+characters on both stage and film, I have had the pleasure to understand that each special project is about the entirety of the ensemble unifying as one to tell a story. Ranging from Cinderella & Wizard of Oz to Tom Robinson in To Kill A Mockingbird & Nat Turner in Black Slave Narratives, I find this craft to be absolutely amazing and I absolutely have enjoyed every moment of the process. We love what we do and it's actually just that simple. Thank you for gracing us with your presence and enjoy the show!!
