Production Stage ManagerScott Conklin
My interest with live stage began in 1973/74 when I was assigned to Special Services Entertainment while stationed at Fort Huachuca. I worked follow-spot, as stagehand, lights and sound, and eventually as Technical Director. Once out of the Army, I returned to my home state and eventually had a 40 year carrer at a School District in the Bay Area. After retiring, we decided to move back to Sierra Vista, where I decided to ask Theater on the Move if they needed any help. After working a few shows with them, I worked with Tombstone Repritory Theater doing lights, sound and video work. I met up with the founders of the Sierra Vista Community Theatre and joined the Board. As the last of the founding members still working with the theater, I’m proud and delighted to see the growth and enthusiasm of the volunteers, actors and current Board as they strive to provide Sierra Vista with a professional and enjoyable venue without having to go to Tucson.

Lead GuitarDavid Vest
My musical experience here, at Sierra Vista Community Theatre includes guitar and bass in "Elbow Sex", Dr. Frank N. Furter's bank in Rocky Horror Show. I played bass in the Christmas Parade Float of 2021, and guitar in the preshow entertainment for Wizard of Oz. I am currently a member of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple: female Version as Jesus Costazuela and enjoyed playing many roles in the Haunted Theatre for 2022. WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WOULD DO TO BETTER SOCIETY/THE WORLD? I would spend more time teaching.
This is my second musical, having done Rocky Horror Show in 2021 as my introduction, and overall now fifth show with the SVCT. I'm as happy as ever to be here and grateful to share the stage and perform the unique take on the music for the love audience. I'm very excited to perform with this amazing cast!
I’m a singer-songwriter with a 30 year history of performance. I taught myself the guitar by reading Beatles “fake books” as a young teenager. I play an exuberant style that is obviously influenced by The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The highlight of my musical achievements was warming up the stage in Washington D.C. for Eartha Kitt in 1993 .
I'm Nic Moschetti, just your average drum bum out here living the desert dream. This is my first production with SVCT. I have played rums since middle school, and have always wanted to play for a live musical, so I'm glad to finally have the opportunity to do that.
I’ve wanted to be a part of the theater since I was a little kid, but I didn’t get the opportunity until I stumbled into SVCT in 2021. I’ve had the pleasure of being in the band for The Rocky Horror Picture Show and I also just had my first acting debut with the Odd Couple, Female Version. Music has always been a part of my life - I’ve been playing piano for sixteen years and I’m thrilled to use my ability for something like this musical. My fun fact: when I was little I willingly stared at the sun in hopes I’d go blind. It didn’t work - completely. One thing I try to do to make the world a better place is listen. Sometimes angry people just need someone who can listen to them and not get angry back.
