FDLCT is Cheryl’s life, and this is the easiest way to summarize her amazing contributions. Cheryl is an accomplished seamstress/costumer and has been a role model in this capacity for many. Her 1st FDLCT performance was singing in the chorus of Oklahoma in 1987. Her most memorable role was as “Nurse Ratched” in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. King and I stands out as her most memorable show for costumes, followed by My Fair Lady, Music Man, and Cinderella. Her theatrical experiences journey back to elementary, middle, and high school performances. In fact, she won an award n 8th grade for “best performance in a small part” for her role as “Katie” the maid, in Meet Me in St. Louis. Cheryl has been a Special Education Teacher for 28 years, and has been at FDLHS since 1986. It is at FDLHS where she coordinated costumes for musicals/plays for 13 years---favorites include Joseph, Les Miserables, and Fiddler on the Roof. It is apparent that Cheryl has worn many hats through the years---Board of Directors (President and Treasurer for many terms), set crew, stage crew, set dresser, production assistant, costumer, box office, usher, House Chair, etc. Cheryl was also the volunteer Chair of the 50th Anniversary Committee. Cheryl is single with 3 furry felines; Dickens (16), Dusty (13), and Monty (7). Hobbies/interests include sewing, stained glass, crafts, shopping, reading, biking, movies, cards, traveling, flower gardening….but predominantly theatre! Every successful organization needs volunteers, and Cheryl is definitely one of the reliable backbones of FDLCT! Thanks for all you do!
