THREEPENNY OPERA
(JeRM Productions, Washington, DC, performed at Stage III in Poulton Hall of Georgetown University in August of 2001),
I got to play Jenny.  It was such fun to play a bad girl!  I LOVED singing “Pirate Jenny” and playing a part that was out of character for me.  It was so much fun.

*


Ah, yes.  This one!  1995, I dressed up as Miss Frizzle from the Magic Schoolbus.  But I did get to meet some groovy folks.  Pictured with me (from left) Andy Ackerman (of the Children’s Museum of Manhattan), Jeff Raikes (of Microsoft), McZee (AKA my dear friend James Rowe), Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman (of The Cosby Show), Walt Frazier (New York Knicks All Star), Emily Leatha Everson (as Miss Frizzle), Tasso Koken (of Nobody Beats the Wiz).

*

Emily and Mitch Miller, June 1992

*

For some reason I can’t remember a whole lot about this production, but I played a part in “Secret History of the Future” at Indiana Repertory Theatre in early 1992.  I DO remember the costumes, though, and how much I loved those striped tights and sneakers there in the picture which were covered with sequins.

This picture is from The Indianapolis News, March 26, 1992.

*

Starlight Musicals Indianapolis 1991 production of “Bye Bye Birdie”
I wish I knew the names of the girls in the picture.  I played Kim’s friend Ursula.

Kim was played by Pauline Frommer who has taken on her father’s business and become the queen of Pauline Frommer’s Travel Guides.

*

Starlight Musicals Indianapolis 1991 production of “A Little Night Music.”  The wonderful Broadway veteran Walter Charles played Fredrik Egerman, I played Fredrika.  I had such a crush on Mr. Charles!  It was a treat to see him play Herr Schultz in DC, Arena Stage 2006 production of “Cabaret,” which was music directed by my dear friend George Fulginiti-Shakar.  Desiree was played by the fabulously formidable Lainie Kazan.

*

*

November & December 1991 I got to play Della in musical version of “Gift of the Magi” at Indiana Repertory Theatre.  I loved playing that part because I’d never really had the chance before the play the ingenue and that was fun.  Luther Creek (now on Broadway in the infamous musical “Spiderman,” which I know from seeing him singing and dancing with the cast during their segment in the 2011 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade broadcast) played my husband Jim.

*

Playing “Shy” with the other “girls” in “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” Indiana University, April 1991.

*

One of my favorite roles EVER was as Emily in “The Marriage of Bette & Boo” in the Indiana University “black box, February 1991. I loved playing that fake cello and saying that I was sorry all the time.  Poor Emily. The show was agonizing in a way, though, because it was so incredibly funny that staying in character was one of the most difficult things I ever did.  It was so hard not to laugh.  And I’ll never forget how much trouble we had with the gravy scene.  The gravy was never right.  It was either too runny or too thick and would spill on the audience or it would not spill at all and we had to pretend.  One night after it spilled on someone in the front row, I wrote them a  note as Emily in the show and said “mia culpa.”  Ha!

Pictured L-R: Sheila Dougherty, David Scott Killion, Erika Stoner, Emily Leatha Everson, Aline Seliga, Daniel Atkins, Robin Abbott, Paul Augustine, Chrissy Sonnek (who, by the way, is one of the funniest women I’ve ever known).

I played “The Little Nun” in Indiana University’s 1990 production of “The House of Blue Leaves.”  I’ve always LOVED the costume part of being in any production, and that big dress was such great fun.

Pictured L-R:  Dianne Timmerman Webb, David Barnes, Emily Leatha Everson (me!), Aline Seliga, Tom Sonnek.

(From Left:  Emily Leatha Everson, Dan Proctor, Heather Hertling [who would become Miss New Jersey 1992], David Barnes)

*

Here’s the cast of “Something’s Afoot” at Brown County Playhouse in 1989.  What fun that was!  It’s a musical based on a mystery.  Each of the house’s occupants gets killed off one at a time and I got to get eaten up, blender style, every night, inside an enormous vase (you can see it there in the background).

Pictured L-R: Heather Hertling, (I don’t remember her name…she was terrific, though!), Thor Steingraber, Chris Martz, Emily Leatha Everson, Dan Proctor, Joe Wilson, Nichole Brown (just her back).

*

My friend Joe Wilson and I sang the song “Teeny Little Dingy” together in 1989 Brown County Playhouse (Nashville, IN) production of “Something’s Afoot.”  We had a lot of fun.

1 Response to "SBWE Photo Gallery"

I am an Early Childhood music teacher at the Congressional Schools of Virginia in Falls Church. One of our mothers met you at a party and brought me one of your cards. I am interesting in hosting a performance at the Congressional schools for the younger children. Could you tell me your availability and what you would charge?
Thanks also for the good ideas. I have read books but have avoided using the singing books. My daughter, the music teacher, uses books like these and I need to add the singing books to my repertoire as well.
