WBOI President and General Manager Terra Brantley spoke with Daria Pilar Redus, one of the stars from the show’s national touring company. The two discussed the parts in the production, how a character like Sandy Cheeks is brought to life, and the message of the musical.

Our music is by Mark Waldick, Noah Campodonico, Kurt Roembke, and Hope Arthur. Our web producer is Loyal Vandenburg. Our production assistants are Monica Blankenship, Meihkai Bowers, Steve Mullaney, Kyle Norbeck, Diahmynd Thomas, Mikaela Veltum, and Sydney Wagner.

Brantley has lived in Allen County, Indiana for almost 30 years, serving as a community servant, advocate, and trusted news anchor. In June 2021, Brantley retired from WANE TV as Indiana’s longest serving African American news anchor, to become President/CEO of the Fort Wayne Urban League, prior to becoming the President and General Manager of WBOI/Northeast Indiana Public Radio.
