She Believed She Could: Lindsay Roberts, Educator and 'Ingenue with a Twist'
by Amanda Prahl - Aug 3, 2018

Most performers have a youthful "origin story" - some memory of watching a musical or being in a community production that introduced them to the magic of the stage and inspired their future path.

BWW Review: MARY POPPINS The Broadway Musical Proves Anything Can Happen When You Let It

You see, the original directing team deserted the production a month before it was due to open, with an incomplete cast in place and tickets already having been sold. How could the challenge be met on time?

It signifies also, to me, what is needed in our government structure today... a true conglomeration of all aspects to arrive at the best possible conclusion that will be of most benefit to ALL.
