Michelle Hosier
is a retired Harford County music teacher and former director/choreographer of "The Staccatos" special needs theater troupe. She is excited to be appearing for the 1st time onstage (well, on-floor!) with Third Wall Productions. Her love of performing began at age 8 when she and her dance partner went door-to-door in their neighborhood, dancing for anyone who would watch! (It was safe back in the 60's!) She has worked onstage and behind the scenes in shows from 6th grade through college. Community theater shows include The Fantasticks (Louisa) and The Importance of Being Earnest (Lady Gwendolyn Fairfax) with Covered Bridge Theater, Mame (Cousin Fan), The Producers (Lick Me Bite Me) and ensemble roles in Jesus Christ Superstar, Bye Bye Birdie and Anything Goes with Phoenix Festival Theater, Shrek, The Musical (tapping rat/ensemble dancer) at St. Demetrios Church, and The Case of the Hopeless Diamond (Felicity Crump), an interactive dinner theater production.
