By the time Alice went into production I was a seasoned player at the theatre.
When Sully retired I was promoted to shop foreman and given the responsibility of guiding each show to fruition.
There were numerous costumes and body parts to make along with schedules and deadlines to
meet. I met each new challenge willingly and grew accordingly.
During those years, Bil and Sully, and the members of their staff openly shared their
art with me. We spent long hours and long nights together. I made
new friends and shared
a lot of laughs. And in the end, I learned an awful lot about the complexity of producing
those shows. Thanks Bil. J
Working for his Theatre was a dream come true for me. Even today, as I continue to
design my own unique puppets and costumes for the entertainment industry I still heed
their kindly advice. And, It works every time.
