This page is, in no way, an official history of Studio 406. It is, however, a tribute to those who got me back into community theater after a 12+ year hiatus -- a break that has not, and will not be repeated (thanks to Charlie, Betty Lou, Les, Nancy, Ron, Dean, Cora, and many others). I've put a few photos from some shows I was involved with here, and hope that others who were involved in the group check in with me.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum was presented in 1980 by Studio 406. I haven't had the chance to see the current production on Broadcway, but that too will change in the not too distance future, I hope!

|Nancy Bundy directed this moving production of a parapalegic artist struggling with life and death. With Paul Bonnell in the leading role of Ken Harrison, I played the "Dr. Craig" type role of Dr. Michael Emerson (and for those of you who know me, that is very far from my normal personality).
