Debra is a licensed dance/movement therapist, working with special needs adults. She says that being both a therapist and a dancer helps her to bring the story to stage, and helps her enable her actors to find their characters.
Debra is especially looking forward to directing Shrek the Musical this summer because of its delightful story and fabulous array of varied and interesting characters for adults and kids alike. She comments, “A wonderful, big ensemble will make SHREK a very special show for all involved, on and off stage. Come be part of the magic. Audition! ”
