Musical DirectorBryan Bird
Bryan Bird (Music Director) has been waiting 34 years to play this show! Seeing Elyria High's production of "42nd Street" at age 8 spurred him to take piano lessons, and now he performs and music directs all over northeast Ohio. (And he sends his love to Mom and Dad for taking him to see that production!) Although he's rarely on stage without a keyboard in front of him, he did appear in Brecksville's "City of Angels" as part of the Angel City Four. By day, Bryan does graphics work for Sherwin-Williams and is also a church organist. He thanks Kristin for bringing him into this dream project, and this amazing cast for "rolling along" each night!
