Twins Talk Theatre

Twins Cynthia Hennon Marino and Stacy Hennon Stone host a weekly podcast talking to the people behind the curtains. Take a trip back stage to learn what it takes to put on a production: design process, music study and execution, paperwork, meetings, management, unions, and all the excitement backstage that the audience doesn’t get to see. Enjoy the show!

096 - Dana Sato

June 12th, 2020

096 - Dana SatoKyoko Dana is an English Teacher in the Montgomery County Public School system, but we think she mostly uses that as a ruse to convince students to join the theatre!! (Note, if you ask students to paint Star Wars themed back drops and have Lightsaber battles onstage, you may get more participants!). Having a few young assistant lighting designers is a plus as well.
