PHOTO GALLERY

Here are some photos from a number of shows that I have done over the years.

As time goes on, I will be adding scanned images from shows going back as much as far as 1975.

A Special Peanuts Presentation

On August 16th, 2002, I had the privilege of performing at the opening of the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, along with six other very talented individuals.   We did a selection of musical numbers based on various characters from the PEANUTS cartoon strip.   Here are some pictures of our performance.

to pitch a baseball game in "Play Ball"

holds in store for them in "This Year."

From left to right, Tim Reynolds as Linus, Karen deHart as Sally, Bob Bergman as Charlie Brown, Ron Packard as Snoopy, Geri Carlson-Sauls as Peppermint Patty, Molly Carter as Lucy, and Keith Pennings as Schroeder.


Lucy encourages about how in the new year, he can make "all new mistakes."  Snoopy rests on his doghouse in the background. 


Linus and Lucy sing about brothers and sisters being close,
while
Charlie Brown and Sally echo the sentiment in "Now."

Narnia
Valley Christian Theater, 1992
(appeared as Mr. Tumnus)


This was one of the most difficult roles physically that I have ever played.   Besides wearing a tightly curled black wig and red body makeup every show, I wore "hoof-shoes" which consisted of a pair of tennis shoes attached to a pair of solid steel sheets bent up like a high-heeled shoe, but with no heel.   Hooves were then built around the shoes and, when combined with hairy paints to simulate my lower "goat half" of my body, looked like I had goat hooves for feet.   They were, however, a real (literal) pain to walk on, because I had to balance on my toes when walking, etc., with no heel support at all.

Guys and Dolls
Sunnyvale Community Players, 1986
(appeared as Society Max - lower right)

The Man of La Mancha
West Valley Light Opera Association, 1983
(appeared as Sancho Panza)

Oklahoma
West Valley Light Opera Association, 1980
