"Children should be seen and not heard" - my mom's words, as I remember.  Was that what set me off on to this acting adventure?  I wonder ... where does this desire to be on stage that we actors share have its beginnings?  I remember the beginnings of Compass Players back in December of 2014; the night that Jeanna pulled me aside to tell me she wanted to get back on stage.  And that she wanted Dave, Frances, and I to join her in forming a new theater company. It blew my mind; two nights into our run of "The Mousetrap" at Sun City Grand Drama and Comedy Club, and she drops that bomb on me!   I couldn't wipe the grin off my face for weeks.  And, it's just gets better, forming these new bonds, on stage and off.  Getting free acting lessons from our talented director and star.  Laughing our way through rehearsals ... struggling with the actor's process ... yup, here we go!   Taking it in surprising directions ...
