Susan Blackwell
When I finished grad school, I joined the acting company of the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. For the next two years, I appeared in lavish productions of obscure 19th-century German translations. Classy.

Kate Reinders
Doing summer stock at Cherry County Playhouse in Muskegon, MI.

Ron Bohmer
I was in three summer stock shows at the American Music Theatre (sadly, it is no more) in new London, CT. I was Horatio in Kiss Me, Kate (Ron Raines was Petruchio/Fred). I also was chorus in Music Man (Rebecca Luker was Marian) and How to Succeed.

Judy Kaye
I was hired to do chorus at the long gone Melodyland Theater, across the street from Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. I performed small roles and whatnot chorus stuff in a season of summer stock.

Marylouise Burke
A maid's role with maybe three lines, tops, in an Off-Broadway production of The Broken Pitcher.
