From L to R: Ada Masciarelli, Michele Matthews and Tricia Bartley
MICHELE (Musical Director/Choreographer)
I have been working with children, adolescents and adults with special needs in Minneapolis, New Orleans and Montreal since 1987. Music and dance have been a huge part of my life since I was a very young child. In 2011 through I Can Dream Theatre, I was able to combine these two areas of interest and the result has been one of
the most rewarding experiences of my life. I continue to teach Special Education during the day and spend much of my free time volunteering with individuals with autism.
TRICIA (Stage Manager - Set Design)
I love being an educator, whether it’s in the classroom or backstage, there is always a lesson given and I’m not always the teacher.
Creating a Set Design that works with the casts abilities and dresses the hard work and dedication that each of them has shown time after time is really a “rush” for me. It’s always new, its always challenging and in the end when it all comes together; it’s always magic.
