This gallery also serves as my little homage to a tremendous colleague, Don Lillie. Don was an incredible man who enriched the lives of nearly everyone who had the great fortune of getting to know him. I count myself as lucky to have been able to join this cast as an Equity Guest Artist in the last show he directed, The Pirates of Penzance. In addition to this great honor, I am happy to say that I was able to do so along side the students in the Department of Theatre, Cinema and Dance and Department of Music at Missouri Western. This was an experience I shall not soon forget.
And, yes, those muttonchops are the real deal.
RIP Don Lillie
