I have directed Musical Theatre for nearly 30 years. When I first started out in theatre, I knew in my heart that one day I would be directing. I also knew that I would have to learn all aspects of the theatre to beable to understand everything that goes on behind the scenes as well as in front. So, I set goals and with every production I was involved with (whether acting or behind scenes), I would ask to be a part of any department that needed extra help. Lighting, costumes, props, tech, sound, set design and set building, advertising, and more. You name it, I did it and I am so thankful that I did. I have won awards for my productions and have had actors cast in movies as well as costume designers who have gone on to work at movie studios. I've enjoyed every minute of my 30 years in the theatre.
