I have been involved, one way or another, with the theater community in the Shoals for 30 years. B.A. in Theater from UNA (under the tutelage of the inimitable RAH) and M.F.A. in Directing from the University of Memphis. Zodiac is where I had my first part with more than 4 lines, my first solo, and has given me most of my closest friends-who-are-family.
Native of Florence, actor dancer, singer, costume and fashion designer. I'm currently on a Disney Live tour traveling Japan and soon the U.S. also employed by the Walt Disney World Resort. Frequent visitor and soon to call Florence home again. I love local theatre and am glad to call the Z home.
I've always been interested in the telling of the story. I live in Tuscumbia and grew up in Florence. I've directed and acted in more than a few local productions. I'm a world-class scrounger/scavenger. I consider myself rich because of the individuals I call "friend".
Gena Rawdon performed in community theatre in the Shoals from 1993 to 2000, when she moved to Huntsville. Some of her favorite memories are from Zodiac shows!
With over 150 shows to my name, I have acted, directed, written and created for years in the Shoals theatre community, serving in every capacity from lighting operator to stage manager, from make-up artist to props.For the last 11 seasons I have worked in marketing and sales in the largest non-profit theatre in the U.S., Theatre Under the Stars in Houston, but Zodiac will always be my heart.
