Director's Note How true is the story of Aladdin in our own lives! We have all followed the journey of finding ourselves and being true to that person within. I remember as a youth how hard it was to do just that. As many other young people, I wanted to be popular and fit in. I also remember how quickly that road became stale and eventually I had to face that who I was, was just fine. Once I figured that out, how free and happy I felt because at … [Read more...] about Disney’s Aladdin Jr.
Director's Note "All I want, more than anything in the world, is to be like other kids... with folks of my own." Annie's optimistic journey to find her parents in the face of pessimistic times is one of the most beloved stories in musical theatre. How relevant her story is today!

I had an irresistible cast and production team that capably engaged this vision. This has truly … [Read more...] about Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Director's Note We are all different from one another. We have different backgrounds, different experiences. We all look different. It's only when we take time to learn about each other that we find out just how much we have in common. I love the message The Aristocats gives us about coming together despite our differences and working towards a common goal. In this case, triumphing over Edgar. I have had an amazing time directing these … [Read more...] about Aristocats Kids
Director's Note "All children, except one, grow up"... Peter Pan. Sir James M. Barrie certainly gave the world a gift when he wrote Peter Pan. This is a celebration of youth and their delightful imgination. Everyone in the cast and crew has worked tirelessly to bring to life this musical gem. What a "lump of delight" it has been to direct such a charismatic show with such an amazing cast and crew! So, relax and let us take you where "your heart … [Read more...] about Peter Pan
