Stepping Away after 44 shows and 22 years...
I started this Jaguar Troupe back in the first year of WHS back in the fall of 1995. I had just finished teaching one class of Drama at Cali, and I was requested to join the other eight teachers that started this school. Teaching theater, managing this building, and directing, most of all directing, has been an exquisite joy. “Thalia” and the troupe has been my family, my significant other, my church and my charity work for years. I want to thank the district and all the staff members over the years that supported me. I’m switching to part-time next year, so this may be my last show here. I had the time of my life; my only regret is that I didn’t pace myself better. *Thalia, the Greek Muse of Comedy, my pet name for this theater.
"I've gone to productions at Santa Rosa Repertory and The Raven and your kids are everywhere. Your fingerprints are all all over the north county. What you have taught---they know what they are doing, that's due to you, your guidance and modeling. It's been a pure joy to watch what you've done."
