Star Valley teacher
Bonnie Shiels was radiant as Sally Bowles. Veteran actor David Ackroyd
directed the production. Betsy Morrison, from Broadway, was the choreographer.
Mikhael Boire played the MC his own way. Mateo Brua was perfectly
cast as the male lead in this difficult tale of youth and corruption
in pre-Nazi Germany.
Linda Grinde, former
dancer with Salt Lake's Bill Evans, and a fine actress as well, directed
an adaptation of What Was I Afraid Of? from Sneeches
and Other Stories. We had a trained dancer and an enthusiastic
amateur cast. I designed the primary costumes, and ran the video camera
in the only FVCC production I contributed to personally.
FVCC Productions as Videographer/Editor: Shadow Box; Strange Snow;
Stop Kiss; The Elephant Man; You're A Good Man Charlie Brown; Brighton
Beach Memoirs; Pump Boys & Dinettes; The Laramie Project; The
Bald Soprano; Oh yeah -- the theater manager was looking for a
play with parts for about a dozen young women, and I suggested
Stage Door. When he decided to do it, he told me "It's your
fault!" if that counts as a credit. I also put together about
a dozen short theatrical promotions for the local public access channel
with the help of the FVCC P.R. Dept. and the busy actors involved
with the plays.
