Some Theater History

While we were working on “The Little Foxes,” one the fellas who was new to our theater started quizzing me on what shows I had been involved in and just how many total I had done. So, I got curious (as I can’t remember it all off the top of my head) and complied the following list. The acting and tech credits are not in chronological order. And the super sad thing is that I am sure I am probably missing a show or two …

    I believe you have to add lighting on Walking Across Eygpt and All tech and some set design on Vagina Monologues.

  3. @ Mom
    “Lend Me a Tenor” is one of the highlights for sure!

    @ Steve
    Hey, Fella!

    @ Franke
    Gah! Thanks for the reminder Franke. And now that I think about, I have designed lights for a few other shows in the Studio … just can’t remember which (getting old).
