My daugher auditioned for her first musical in May, 2017. The director of the show suggested parents come to the final dress rehearsal to take photos so they could enjoy the actual performances. I sat in the theater seat during that dress rehearsal with the expectation to be there for 15 minutes or so. At the end of the rehearsal I had about 1,200 photos and decided to share them with the producer of the performance.
This October, Music Man is the sixth show that I have now photographed for The Rosen Performing Arts Center at the YMCA in Wayne, NJ. Working with the producer and director, we keep adding little things here and there to make use of these photos even more impactful for the actors, the audience, and the Rosen PAC.
The headshots are now displayed in the lobby of the PAC giving the audience to get a sneak peek of into the cast.
