Growing up in the shadows of Manhattan, Bennett’s favorite childhood memories are his parents taking him to great shows in all the performing arts. “The love for theatre is part of my DNA. There’s never been a time I can remember when creating great theatre in one form or another hasn’t been with me.”
He began as a musician, recording and performing across the U.S. and Canada. He has acted in dozens of plays in New York and California; ranging from Ringo in the Broadway production of Beatlemania, Artie Shaughnessey in House of Blue Leaves and recently Jim Casy in The Grapes of Wrath. In 2011 he created, wrote and performed several roles in a weekly internet program called Unconditional Reality – How to BE There from Here.

Connie has graciously been allowed to entertain the citizens of Siskiyou County since 1971. She found her singing voice performing with the College of the Siskiyous Vocal Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Kirby Shaw. Since then, Connie has fronted several local rock bands and acted in numerous plays and musicals throughout the county. Although no longer a fresh faced 10-year old, Connie often behaves like one.
