Sound Manager: Phillip Evans started out in theater with the East Theater Company at Belleville East. President of the International Thespian Society 86' and 87'. I acted in a couple of plays but fell in love with the backstage magic of theater. From lighting to set building to sound design - all of the things that allow a show to come together and let the audience get lost in the performance. I've been with TABS for almost four years. Starting with Shrek - I was asked to take over sound 5 days before the opening night and have been here ever since.
Stage Manager: Warren Frank has been involved in theatre since Methuselah was only a hundred. He has been an actor in Illinois and Missouri for the last too many years. Lately, he has been more involved in technical theatre with set building, stage managing and directing. In fact, he has three directing gigs lined up for the coming theatre season for three different theatre groups. Guess he can’t hold a job. Thrilled to be working with TABS again.
Costumer: Amy Hopkins has been sewing since she was a young girl. She has costumed many productions over the years. Her favorite things include sewing, upholstery, gardening, camping, photography, and playing her violin. She is busy juggling homeschooling 3 children, her own personal historian business, and costuming. She has won two Toppers awards for costuming while living in Germany and has now jumped in with both feet to join TABS. Her goal at TABS is to get all the other cast members sewing!
