"My sister and I love playing in the Lex-Ham Band! Growing up, we were too far apart in age to be in band together. It’s so fun getting to play music with the Lex-Ham community and with each other".

Director

"Directing at Lex-Ham is always a great adventure.  I find myself stimulated with the research and interpretation of texts with which I had no previous knowledge, although I hold an academic background in dramatic literature!  Through Lex-Ham I have delved into: an intriguing O' Neill with a surprising feminist bent; a play penned by our own F. Scott Fitzgerald for his St. Paul teenage theatre company; a comedy by my favorite George S. Kaufman with co-author Katharine Dayton’s treatise on 1930’s women involved in U.S. politics and power!  Most recently, I worked with Twin Cities’ distinguished talent in a staged reading of a controversially feminist George Bernard Shaw drama.  In all of these productions Lex-Ham attracted excellent actors and technicians with whom I still gratefully collaborate.  The intellectual stimulation and the entertaining interpersonal experiences available attract me to work with Lex-Ham.

"For many years since retirement, I have been active in Lex-Ham’s community theater productions. I designed and built sets for numerous productions and have served on the selection committee as well. Lex-Ham is an open and friendly organization devoted to giving people a number of ways to explore their interest in the the performing arts. Through play readings, improv sessions, and productions, participants can stretch their theatrical muscles while making new friends."

"I've been playing bass clarinet in the Lex-Ham band since I retired in 2011. I really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. I can't remember a time when I didn't have fun at rehearsal or a performance."
