I had a chance to do everything from deck crew, fly captain, spotlight, to stage manage in the first year!

I learned more than just how to act on a stage, but how to be committed to something and be accountable to others, not just myself.

We did theatre because we loved it, we had passion and we had a family, a family that still exists.
