The holiday season has arrived and with that comes many invitations to fabulous parties but there is one very special event happening this December that you don’t want to miss. It’s the very exciting upcoming alumni event December 30, 2011 at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center.

Words can't describe how proud I am to be a part of this event. I've been a main stage performer in a number of shows from 1992-1997, attended the first Theater Academy, running through the office halls of the PAC (Marcus Center), served as an intern, and now am the chair of the alumni event as a member of the First Stage Board of Directors. Although I never became an actor, First Stage taught me how to stilt walk, read in iambic pentameter, and how to improv, but more importantly about myself. I learned that I'm not going to be good at everything, but that a positive "YES" attitude can take you a lot of places and no matter who you are there is always a place to fit in. Today, I may be a less than exciting banker, but I wouldn’t be a fraction of who I am without the influence of First Stage in my life.

I'm guessing many of you feel the same way. Please come join us for our event and revisit the place you helped bring to life through your creativity and enthusiasm. Happy Christmas Part 2!
Hope to see you on the December 30!
