Gas Lamp Inc.

Gas Lamp Junior debuted in the summer of 2007. We produced full musicals with children in grades K-8 and hired students grades 9-12 + university level as camp counselors and production / run crew. As the program developed over the years, opportunities for our older students developed in design, stage management and stage craft. Gas Lamp also employed
a full teaching staff alongside the production staff each summer, thus further developing Gas Lamp Academy of Performing Arts (GLAPA).

Pushcart Players

Pushcart Players is a TYA Equity contract traveling children's troupe as well as a producing theatre for venues with youth clientele. I worked at two venues with Pushcart; The Metropolitan YMCA of The Oranges, Rosen PAC (formerly the YMHA of North Jersey) grades 1-8 and St. Rose of Lima a private middle school in Short Hills, NJ, grades 7 & 8. We produced full musical productions at both venues. Each facility was fundamentally different in set up and staffing. Rosen PAC had small but efficient professional staff who could assist with production and design while at St. Rose I had a small crew of parent volunteers and a handful of students for production support.

The Man In The Window  made it's world premiere at the Roy Arias Studios in NYC in The Mid-Winter One Act Play Festival.  Later that year the show toured to western Pennsylvania  where it played at the Saxonburg Festival of the Arts.  John Roebling founded Saxonburg in 1832 where he invented the steel cable that suspends the Brooklyn Bridge.
