ā€œIā€™m honored and excited to be asked to join Seattle Musical Theatre. I have a special relationship to the legacy of SMT. Back in the 1980’s I had the honor of being cast in the child role of Scipio in the Civic Light Opera (CLO) production of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, under the direction of Dr. Tawnya Pettiford-Wates. That experience on the Jane Addams School stage was profound and life changing and planted the seed in me to become the theatre director, producer, and arts leader that I am today.ā€
