Andy Planck enjoys teaching at the "Triple Threat Performance Academy," as well as directing for the company.

Three Rivers Music Theatre is the newest edition to Fort Wayne's rich theatrical scene, and its founding artistic director, Andy Planck, is looking to put a new face on a fine old tradition.

From its home base on Pearl Street, Andy and his team of Artistic Advisors are proud to be a part of the city's cultural revolution, as he calls it, and "celebrate the essential power of live theatre to illuminate our community."

WBOI's Julia Meek met with Planck earlier this week to discuss the company's motivation, current production, and it's innovative "Triple Threat Performance Arts Academy."
