2019/2020 Production Team

Musical Director

Susan is very excited to be coming back as director for the 2019/2020 spring musical with Owen J. Roberts High School. She has been directing and/or producing youth theater for the past 17 years with 50+ productions with actors ages 4 to 18 years under her belt.

She is an accomplished singer and actress having performed in such popular theatrical productions as "Cabaret" as Sally Bowles, "South Pacific" as Nellie Forbush, "My Fair Lady", "The Secret Garden", "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", "Into The Woods", and "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?" playing Becky and Virginia in separate productions.

Her professional experiences include performing as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies Entertainment Troupe, vocal over artist for Bold Gold Media, and walk-on parts in "Rocky V" and a small independent film "The Life and Times of Charlie Putz."

Her biggest delight (other than being the mother of 3 wonderful young men) has been the opportunity to bring her love of the arts to the youth in PA. Her career in live theater began at the age of 10 and she's been hooked since that very first show.
