There's a whole story on how we achieved this recording, but I'll save that for another day.  Musical Director Dean Kiesling did an exceptional job preparing our singer/actors. Ren Yantis assisted with many headphones and splitters. And I mixed it in Apple Garageband.  Not bad for a bunch of amateur recording engineers. 

4 Soloists In Order of appearances: Kaedon Robertson, Kate Yantis, Jackson Tucker and Carlee Richardson.

Grease opens THIS FRIDAY!

“Here I Am, I’ve Come So Far” - Carlee Richardson

Fresh off of her high school graduation, Carlee sits down with WL to talk about her upcoming starring role as Sandy in Grease.  We delve into her already amazing accomplishments on stage and in life.  She cleverly uses one word to describe each of her castmates.  And then we get serious with a life event that will forever shape who she is. 

There's just something special about getting to visit with a bright eyed teen whose story hasn't been written yet.

 Nick has a true servant's heart that he gets to share in SO many wonderful ways in theatre.  He's also a self professed nerd.  We explore those topics and several others on this lively episode.  

Don't miss him in starring in Neil Simon's "Rumors" opening April 16th!

“Does she have the lamps now, too?” - Alisa Hinton

It's always such a treat to be in the presence of Alisa Hinton.  She's graced the stage in numerous Lyric productions and never fails to add that sprinkle of magic to her roles, both big and small.  

Next month she'll perform in her second Neil Simon work, playing the quirky Cassie in "Rumors".

Alisa's fun-loving personality oozes (maybe it's the libation?) in this lively back and forth and she dishes on all of her current castmates.  Enjoy!
