I recently caught up with Brian Cagle of the law firm Pepicelli, Youngs and Youngs (PYY), one of our wonderful sponsors. Personally, Brian is a great example of the many volunteers that work tirelessly literally “behind the scenes” at MCT. His real stage is the Crawford County Courthouse.
Why does PYY support MCT?
It’s a true “community” theater, involving local actors, musicians and even playwrights. I know from my personal involvement how theater creates long term relationships. MCT is like a family.
What’s your background in theater?
I am a past MCT President. I’ve done a lot of stage managing and tech work.
Have you done any performing?
I limit my performing for judges and juries. I actually was an off stage voice once, but that will be the closest I ever get. I like doing the hands on work that helps make shows happen.
Do you have any favorite shows?
I think Noises Off is great because it is about operating a theater and is really funny. I think Crazy for You is an amazing musical because it includes so many classic songs and is also hilarious.
Any other thoughts about MCT?
I know MCT has performed from many venues in the past, and I know that no matter where MCT is located, it will always stay true to its community based artistic roots.
