Twins Cynthia Hennon Marino and Stacy Hennon Stone host a weekly podcast talking to the people behind the curtains.

104 - Megan Lovegren

What happens when a kid is obsessed with spies and hackers, and all she wants to do when she grows up is wear black, a headset, and a walkie talkie? She joins the back stage world of theatre! Megan Lovegren started in Elementary school and has never stopped. Meeting Stacy Hennon Stone, Sean Gray (ep. 84), Madison Mooney (ep. 30) and Jacquelin Wingett (ep. 15) at the Long Beach Playhouse while getting volunteer hours (and more!) in High School. She is now in Las Vegas running different lighting tracks for Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil! There is no telling where she will go from there! And we could not be more proud of our little high school friend!

103 - Chris Eli Blak

Like so many people, Cris Eli Blak didn't know theatre was a career outside of school.  In college he majored in Liberal Studies to get the broadest education and to help understand the widest range of human experience.  He started playwriting by copying his idols such as Walt Disney, Shakespeare, August Wilson and Stephen Adly Guirgis.  But it did not feel right.  That is when he learned that no one could tell your story like you, and the best way to do it, is to just do it.
