The Pirates of Penzance 2022 Cast

The Principals

Scott A. Gorman – Major-General Stanley

In early 2020, about the time of the original GSVLOC Ruddigore production, Scott made a momentous decision … the stars had finally aligned, his ducks were all in a row, all his i’s were dotted, all his t’s were crossed, and the time was finally right to audition for the very next show with the GSVLOC. Little did he know that the universe was plotting against him, and that the “next show” with the GSVLOC wasn’t going to occur until more than 2 years later! However, the silver lining is that the “next show” happens to be one of his favorites … and the role he is playing is very much a bucket list role. So, Scott is very excited to be making his debut with the GSVLOC as Major General Stanley! Some of Scott’s favorite previous roles include Patsy in Spamalot!, Ghost of Christmas Present in A Christmas Carol, Maurice in Beauty & the Beast, Drake in Honk!, General Genghis Khan Schmitz in Seussical, Sky Masterson in Guys & Dolls, and Lazar Wolf in Fiddler on the Roof. Scott currently works as a worship pastor, a voiceover and on-camera actor, as well as a freelancer in the digital marketing space. Scott has also been a contracted performer with several Twin Cities ensembles, such as: Minnesota Opera, Opera 101, The Dale Warland Singers, Minnesota Chorale, and the MN Renaissance Festival…among others. Surrounded almost entirely by females (his wife, his four daughters, and the dog), he’s done extensive, real-life role preparation and research for the part of Major General Stanley. As a result, he is limited to pursuing manly endeavors such as grunting, burping, and perfecting a killer repertoire of dad jokes with the only other male in the household: Zipadee … the parakeet.


Anna Maher – Mabel

Anna has been previously seen in Ruddigore, The Mikado, Princess Ida, Orpheus in the Underworld, The Gondoliers, and Iolanthe with the GSVLOC. Other projects have included H.M.S. Pinafore and Man of La Mancha with Joe Chvala, and Into the Woods with Shoot the Glass Theatre, among others. You may also see her singing with Minnesota Chorale, Opera on Tap, Opera Reading Project, and Mystery Opera Theatre. Special thanks to Lisa Butcher at the University of Minnesota’s Lion’s Voice Clinic, Maggie Benham, and Janis Hardy for their unwavering support over the last month.


Seth Tychon Steidl – Frederic

Seth could not be happier to perform in his third production with the GSVLOC after 2016’s Iolanthe (Peer) and 2020’s / 2022’sRuddigore (Robin Oakapple). Additional recent credits include Paul Andrew Willis Jr’s One Stride Behind the Setting Sun (Tiresias), Open Door Community Theater’s The Little Mermaid (King Triton), Ashland Production’s Beauty & the Beast and Mamma Mia (Beast, Sam Carmichael), Eagan Summer Community Theater’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Quasimodo), and Artistry’s The Secret Garden (Dickon Sowerby). When not performing on stage, Seth is either chanting at Saint Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church or spending time with his wonderful wife, Sarah.


Lara Trujillo – Ruth

Lara appeared in the Ordway Theater’s productions of In the Heights, and in My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra, as well as at the Guthrie Theater, in 7th House Theater Company’s production of The Passage, at the History Theater in River Road Boogie: The Augie Garcia Story and J.D. Steele’s Snapshots: Life in the City, at The Pantages in HAIR, in Joe Chvala’s production of Heaven at Park Square Theater, as well as in productions with Minnesota Opera, Mill City Summer Opera, Theater Latte Da, Teatro del Pueblo, Lyric Arts Main Street Stage, Artistry and Mu Performing Arts. Some of her favorite roles include The Witch in Into the Woods, Anita in West Side Story and Eva Peron in Evita. Lara directed and appeared in Full Circle Theater Company’s spring 2022 production of Atacama, at Park Square Theater. This is Lara’s twelfth appearance with the GSVLOC, having performed in previous productions of Iolanthe, The Yeomen of the Guard, Utopia, Limited, The Sorcerer, Orpheus in the Underworld, The Mikado and Ruddigore, but this production marks her first appearance in a fully staged version of The Pirates of Penzance. Lara has also appeared with the GSVLOC and the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra at the Lake Harriet Bandshell, in concert versions of H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado. She is immensely grateful to her husband, Stephen, and to her family and friends who continually offer her their love, support, and encouragement.


Waldyn Benbenek – The Pirate King

Waldyn first got hooked on Gilbert and Sullivan when he was in sixth grade and the eighth graders did a kid-friendly version of H.M.S. Pinafore. He was given his first D’Oyly Carte recording (The Pirates of Penzance) for his thirteenth birthday. He proceeded to memorize a good number of the operettas to the annoyance and embarrassment of his siblings. He sang and performed in the theater as an undergrad when he was supposed to be studying mathematics and in graduate school when he was supposed to be studying theology. In 1979, he ended up in the Twin Cities having finally settled on an IT career. While here, he saw a poster for a “Pinafore Sing-along.” That led him to the fateful Kenwood basement where Dick Fishel announced that they were there to start a Gilbert and Sullivan Company. Since then, Waldyn has been a part of the company and done a checkered set of tasks for the group. He has also performed with the company in many different roles, mostly father-figures, cads, and criminal types. He is really happy to be playing the Pirate King again and to be performing it with the youth he has come to love working with in the last few years. One of the big payoffs of working with the company has been meeting his wife, Mary Mescher Benbenek. All three of their children have performed in the company productions. They know more of Waldyn’s performing life than his professional career. When one of his children was asked his father’s profession, he said, “Opera singer.” When Waldyn challenged him, he answered, “I can’t tell them you’re a computer programmer. That’s too boring.”


Maggie Benham – Kate

Maggie is delighted to find herself back on stage with the GSVLOC after her company debut in Ruddigore this past year. She’s only mildly disappointed to not be the glorious Pirate King, but who isn’t!? The Pirates of Penzance holds a special place in her heart, having performed the role of Mabel at the University of Northwestern – Saint Paul where she received her degree in Vocal Performance and Theatre. You may have spotted her on other stages in the Twin Cities ( for more!), but she is happy to be a dedicated part of the GSVLOC family. By day, you can find Maggie living the marketing dream at Hook Agency, dancing through life with her husband Brandyn, and trying to keep up with her overly energetic puppy. Hugs to them both!


Paul Nevin – The Sergeant of Police

Paul is appearing in his first production with the GSVLOC, but the second time he has been in a principal role in a Pirates of Penzance production. He is very much enjoying performing both as a pirate in Act I and the Sergeant in Act II with the talented powerhouse of singers in this show. Paul has sung with audition-based choirs almost every year for forty years in such cities as Sioux Falls, Louisville, Stillwater, and the Twin Cities! Currently, he also sings with the Minnesota Chorale and Singers with Accord. From time to time, he has participated in community theater musical productions. Although most of his career has been spent in State contracting and health care administration, this Sergeant is also a licensed attorney.


Kaoru Shoji – Edith

This is Kaoru’s first time performing with the GSVLOC and she couldn’t be happier! In fact, this is her first time performing on stage in quite a number of years, and her first performance in Minnesota! After graduating the Royal Northern College of Music in the United Kingdom, Kaoru has performed as part of the Dayton Opera Chorus in Ohio, and also made appearances in a number of charity galas in the United States and in Europe. She had yet to find the opportunity to perform in the Minnesota music scene, however, since moving here about six years ago. Kaoru couldn’t be more thankful to the GSVLOC for the opportunity to indulge in her love of music and performing again! In her spare time, she loves to watch musicals, pet other people’s animals (she longs for one of her own!), and goes to the gym to one day smash the patriarchy with her biceps.


Alexander Gerchak – Samuel

Alexander has enjoyed the privilege of working with the GSVLOC for the past seven years, as both a performer, technician, and designer. He also works as a writer and director in the Twin Cities area, having recently staged an original musical, A Bear at Minneapolis’ Phoenix Theater. Alexander currently sits on the GSVLOC’s Board of Directors as the Men’s Chorus Representative, and is looking forward to the company’s continued success for many years to come.


Mallory Rabehl – Isabel

This is Mallory’s first production with the GSVLOC and she couldn’t be happier. Playing Isabel has been an absolute delight. A recent graduate from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, Mallory sang in the Concordia Choir for three years, serving as the Student Manager in her senior year. She is now doing a little bit of everything that she loves, from working as a Ticket Services Supervisor with the Minnesota Orchestra by day, to collaborating with the high-caliber musicians of this cast by night. In addition to these pursuits, Mallory fills her time with K-Pop, local restaurants, and mindless hours on TikTok.


The Chorus

Sam Babkin

Sam is extremely happy to be a part of his first GSVLOC production! He is in so much awe of the thus talented cast! He was recently in Lakeshore Players Theatre production of Singin’ in the Rain and The Little Mermaid. Before that he also performed in The Laramie Project and Almost Maine at Plymouth Playhouse. In Sam’s free time, he enjoys playing volleyball with his friends while singing showtunes. He also considers himself a gym bro even though he does miss a few days here and there, but always makes up for it by doing some choreo for shows he is in ;-). Sam is proud of what this cast has created on stage and he hopes you enjoy seeing it as much as he enjoys being a part of it!


Mary Mescher Benbenek

Mary has performed with the GSVLOC intermittently for over thirty years. She has gravitated from playing a lithe, lovesick maiden to a stern chaperone and maiden minder. What she does not tell her wards, is that she is secretly married to the Pirate King!


Sarah Brickeen

An aspiring Coloratura Soprano, Sarah recently debuted as Lauretta in FIO-Italia’s production of Gianni Schicchi in Urbania, Italy this past summer. Last month, she competed as a semi-finalist in the 2022 Camille Coloratura International Competition and has received recognition as a Certified Young Artist in the 2021 CS International Music Competition. Sarah has studied and performed numerous roles, most notably Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro), Euridyce (Orfeo ed Euridyce), and Gretel (Hansel and Gretel). Sarah received her Masters of Music at the University of Memphis and currently resides in Minneapolis, studying with John DeHaan. Upcoming engagements include a cover role of Nanetta with Opera Reading Project in Minneapolis.


Justin Cervantes

Justin is excited to make his debut with the GSVLOC and to perform in his first Gilbert & Sullivan production! He was last seen performing as Pablo del Valle in Native Gardens with the Northfield Arts Guild. Prior to that Justin directed White Privilege with Chain Reaction Theatre Project. One of his favorite roles was performing as Pablo Picasso in Picasso at the Lapin Agile with The Chameleon Theatre Circle. Other directing credits include Northfield Arts Guild, Lakeshore Players Theatre, Locally Grown Theatre, Eagan Theatre Company, and Saint Louis Park Theatre. Justin serves as the Board Chair of CLIMB Theatre, which is where his professional career began after graduating from Wartburg College. He is also a proud member of the Apollo Male Chorus of Minneapolis. Special thanks to his family and Adriana for all their love and support. Tarantara!


Theresa Drexler

This is Theresa’s first production with the GSVLOC, and she could not be more grateful to work with such a passionate and professional group! She has performed with many theatre companies across the Twin Cities such as Lakeshore Players Theatre, Fridley Community Theatre and the Columbia Heights Fine Arts Foundation. Favorite credits include Enchanted April (Rose Arnott), All’s Well That Ends Well (Helena), and Urinetown (Poor Ensemble). Theresa recently finished performing in Eden Prairie Players’ 17th Annual Collection of One Acts, during which she played a six-year-old accused of stealing her brother’s ice cream. Now she is a proper young lady from the Victorian era. My, how times change! Theresa is also a Cast Member with Occasions With Character LLC, a professional children’s character entertainment company. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts from Bethel University and would like to thank Brent, Leigh Anne, and Meg for their wisdom and guidance. Theresa would also like to thank her parents and God, as well as the audience for their continued support of live theatre!


Jeff Erickson

Google defines Jeff D. Erickson as, “Did you mean: Chef de cuisine?” Regardless, Jeff defines himself as thrilled to be returning for his fourth (fifth, if Ruddigore counts twice!) consecutive show with the GSVLOC, after appearing in Ruddigore (2020 and 2022 productions), The Mikado, and Princess Ida. You may have also recently seen him in The Most Happy Fella, with Skylark Opera Theatre, and My Fair Lady (Henry Higgins), with Morris Park Players. In his free time, Jeff enjoys singing (obviously), playing video games more than he should, playing the piano less than he should, watching terrible reality shows, and not using his Computer Science or French degrees in any way whatsoever. Jeff is also very flattered that you think he looks twenty-two.


Jakob Gomez

Jakob is stoked to be returning to the GSVLOC! As someone who has always been described as “swashbuckling,” The Pirates of Penzance feels right at home. You may have seen him in other shows, such as Glass Menagerie with 4C Theatre, and The Little Mermaid with Open Door Theatre. Jakob would like to thank his friends, for their warm words and soft hugs.


Mary Gregory

Mary welcomes you to enjoy this performance of The Pirates of Penzance! Her hope is that this frolic will lift your spirits and bring you joy. This is Mary’s third performance of The Pirates of Penzance with the GSVLOC. She has been a member of the group since her son was not yet one year old. Both he and her daughter grew up with the strains of Sullivan’s music and the clever plot twists of Gilbert’s libretto, and she hopes to introduce her three year old grandson to the onstage antics of the GSVLOC soon. When not singing operettas with her friends at the GSVLOC, or the “ABC’s” with three year olds, Mary quilts, bikes, enjoys nature hikes, travels, and leads a church children’s choir. “Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates” Mark Twain – Life on the Mississippi


Stephen Hage

Stephen’s lifelong passion for Gilbert and Sullivan began in the eighth grade when he was cast as Sir Joseph Porter in his middle school’s production of H.M.S. Pinafore and it’s carried him through the years to this staging of The Pirates of Penzance … his forty-second appearance in a G&S production … but then, who’s counting!? He also serves the GSVLOC as its Producer. Stephen has performed on stage with Artistry and as a supernumerary with Minnesota Opera and Mill City Summer Opera. In addition to performing on stage, Stephen is active in the Twin Cities’ vibrant film community and has appeared in numerous feature films, short films, commercials and music videos, in roles ranging from principal to supporting to background. By day, he is responsible for Human Resources for the Orion Associates organization of companies, which he does with his wonderful staff of Human Resources professionals, all the while enjoying far too many cups of coffee. Stephen dedicates this, and all that he does, to his delightful daughters, Lyndsay, Madeleine, and Maya … to his sweet son, Liam … and to his lovely and loving wife, Lara.


Leah Holmes

This is Leah’s GSLVOC debut as Isabel’s understudy and a member of the ensemble. She is a senior at Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists and has been performing on stage since the age of three. Leah has earned scholarships to New York City, including Steps on Broadway and was awarded a New York City Dance Alliance Outstanding Dancer. She has performed with other companies such as Black Dirt Theater and Youth Performance Company. You can see Leah performing soon in The Velveteen Rabbit at Youth Performance Company, Merrily We Roll Along at SPCPA, and J-Term at SPCPA. She would like to thank her family, friends, coaches, and her cat Pumpkin for the overwhelming support and looks forward to being in the dance and musical theatre industry.


Shawn Holt

This is Shawn’s second production of The Pirates of Penzance with the GSVLOC. A company member since 2007, she has graduated from maiden to chaperone / governess roles. Both are fun. It’s all part of Shawn’s Alzheimer’s prevention plan! She hails from Shoreview where she lives with her husband, Phil, and their cat, Shadow. Her daughter, Amanda, is a sophomore in college, but still likes to visit home on weekends. Shawn hopes you enjoy the show.


Michael Hull

Michael is absolutely thrilled to make his debut with the GSVLOC. Perhaps you have seen him on several other stages in the Twin Cities, where his more recent shows include The Little Mermaid (Lakeshore Players), Guys and Dolls, Beauty and the Beast, and Newsies (Ashland Productions), Miracle on 34th Street (The Phipps), and The Sound of Music (Grace Theatre). When not on stage, Michael is a Healthcare Research Director who loves traveling, reading, the performing arts, the outdoors, and much more. He sends special thanks and gratitude to director Gary, music director Randy, daughter Liana, voice teacher Anna, and to this welcoming and talented cast and production staff. Finally, Michael thanks you for your support of this production and hopes that it brings you joy. Oh, happy day, with joyous glee! See for more.


Jacob Koshiol

Jacob has been an aspiring opera singer ever since his vocal teacher, Michael Jorgensen, from Gustavus Adolphus College helped him discover his bass voice. Although that reduced his chances of ever becoming a top ten pop artist, he quickly found a niche for following the classical genre. From beginning his performing career eating copious amounts of Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies in Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd with Gustavus (2017) to now singing in his very first show with the GSVLOC, Jacob has also found a wonderful musical outlet singing all around the Twin Cities metro area with VocalEssence, Cross View Lutheran Church, and River Hills United Methodist Church. When Jacob isn’t performing or frantically studying his score, he can be found working at M Health Fairview as a psychiatric associate in their residential treatment center for adolescent substance abuse, falling from the sky with a parachute strapped to his back, or leading trips in the Boundary Waters with friends or other youth through his father’s nonprofit youth organization. Jacob currently resides in Saint Paul with his partner, Shauna, in their first apartment together! Jacob (aka “Tall Jacob” in this show) is thrilled to have been given this opportunity with the GSVLOC and expresses his appreciation for our Director, Gary Briggle, Music Director, Dr. Randal A. Buikema, Choreographer, Penelope Freeh, and all other staff and cast. Jacob would also like to thank his father, Tom, for always encouraging him to pursue his passions.


Nani Krueger

Nani is super excited to be making her GSVLOC debut. This is the first show she has done as an adult (outside of college productions) and her first operetta ever! Nani is very grateful to have been cast in such a great show with such great people! She currently is attending Concordia University – Saint Paul and is getting a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Biology, although that doesn’t stop her from being involved in the choir (Christus Chorus) and theatre productions. Theatre is her passion and she will not be stopped!


Kate Lamb

Kate is thrilled to debut in her first GSVLOC mainstage show. Previous engagements include the world premiere of Nicholas J. White’s On Outbreak for New Ruckus, Opera On Tap & Composer Quest’s New Composition program premieres and previous performances with the GSVLOC at the Minnesota Fringe Festival (Trial by Jury), Minnesota Chorale, The Singers-Minnesota Choral Artists, Luther College Opera, Nordic Choir and the Saint Cloud Concert Choir. She earned her Bachelor of Art in Music with a Psychology Minor from Luther College and Master of Science in Communication Disorders from Saint Cloud State University (SCSU). Kate currently works as a speech-language pathologist and provides clinical instruction for graduate students at SCSU. In her free time, she enjoys “climbing over rocky mountain” and “skipping rivulet and fountain” with her husband and two young sons as they revel in fresh Lake Harriet air.


Blanka Melbostad

Blanka is thrilled to be part of The Pirates of Penzance. Her most recent credits include playing Queen of The Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Jou Jou in Lehár’s Die Lustige Witwe, and the Dew Fairy in Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. She is incredibly grateful to be part of such a talented cast and crew.


Mikaela Moe

Mikaela is very excited to be making her debut with GSVLOC! She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Musical Theatre and Acting & Directing with Minors in Leadership and Film. While in college, Mikaela got to study and train in NYC, and it holds a special place in her heart. Prior to The Pirates of Penzance, she was seen onstage in Lakeshore’s White Christmas (ensemble), and as Madame in CastleCo’s production of Beauty and the Beast. Mikaela did not begin her theatre journey onstage, but rather, when her parents dressed her up as the energizer bunny for Halloween one year. Offstage, she is a teaching artist with SteppingStone Theatre, is a substitute teacher, and runs a small Etsy shop called BushelandPeckSoap where she makes soap, greeting cards, and stationery products. Outside of her work, Mikaela enjoys keeping her dog’s bowtie collection well stocked, making sure he has the right bowtie for each season. She would like to thank everyone who has supported her, and to coffee for providing her with the fuel to keep moving. For Ted.


John Orbison

A retired middle school math teacher, John has been known to wax rhapsodic about binomial theorem, integral and differential calculus, peculiarities parabolus, and many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse. He still coaches several math teams and is now sharing the stage with someone who was a sixth-grader on his math team the last time John performed in a GSVLOC stage production of this wonderful show, where the basses enjoy the best of both the criminal and law enforcement worlds and all the sherry-pouring, steel-baring, poetry-hailing, magnanimity-displaying, leafy arm-waving, fickle breeze-courting, yield-charging, and queen-loving therein. He owes thanks to his sister and Assistant Music Director Jean Van Heel for first luring him to the GSVLOC stage in 2006, his children Tom and Ann, for sharing countless hours watching the Linda Ronstadt/Kevin Kline video with him in their youth, and Holly MacDonald, long-time GSVLOC alto who looked over the fact that he was timidly inclined, and befell auspiciously into domesticity-indulging, as they were conjugally matrimonified shortly before the opening of our last Pirates in 2011. Divine emollient!


Brandon Osero

Brandon conscientiously feels it is his duty to welcome you to The Pirates of Penzance! This is his first time sailing aboard the GSVLOC and his second time performing this delightful operetta. A Twin Cities-based actor, Brandon has performed with Lyric Arts Main Street Stage, Lakeshore Players, the MN Fringe Festival, Ashland Productions, Morris Park Players, and the Black Hills Playhouse. Besides practicing his piratical profession, he works as a Front-of-House manager for Lyric Arts. When he is not engaged in his employment, he attends the University of Minnesota where he pursues a Bachelor’s Degree in Individualized Studies with disciplines in theater, communications, and cultural studies.


Samantha Raun

Samantha is delighted to return to the GSVLOC for her second production. Some of her recent and/or favorite Twin Cities credits include Singin’ in the Rain and The Little Mermaid (Lakeshore Players Theatre), Puffs (LaMarca Theatre), Julius Caesar, Mary Poppins, Into the Woods, and Phantom of the Opera (University of Northwestern Saint Paul). Samantha graduated from University of Northwestern Saint Paul with a B.A. in Theatre and a Music minor and now works at her alma mater in Admissions. In her free time, when not performing, she loves spending time with her mischievous, but well-meaning pup Kevin, listening to film scores, and convincing her friends to participate in as many game nights as time allows. Samantha is grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside all of the fun people involved in The Pirates of Penzance. She’d like to thank her mom and dad for being the best grandPAWrents to Kevin when her theatre schedule fills her time, and Lara for her grace as Samantha figures out how this understudy thing works. Soli Deo gloria.


Lowell Rice

Lowell is back with the GSVLOC for The Pirates of Penzance, and couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it! This show is the first one he remembers seeing, and he’s had just as much fun rehearsing it as he did watching it all those years ago. You may have seen him in Ruddigore with the GSVLOC in either 2020 or 2022, or a number of other local productions since he graduated with a Theatre Arts degree from Bethel University in 2015, which he puts to use in his day job helping legislators with computer troubles.


Sam Vinitsky

Sam is overjoyed to be a part of his first production with the GSVLOC, which marks his return to the stage after an almost three-year hiatus due to mysterious circumstances. Before that absence, he performed in shows with music of … varying quality … at the University of Wisconsin-Madison — from the exceptional Urinetown (Bobby Strong) and Spelling Be (music director + pianist) to the absolutely horrendous, yet somehow still fun Evil Dead, the Musical! (Jake). When not gallivanting onstage, Sam spends his time solving complex problems in health-insurance as a Data Scientist at a disruptive startup health insurance company (Surest, formerly Bind) and babysitting his favorite niece.


Jacob Wilde

The Pirates of Penzance is Jacob’s first show with the GSVLOC, and he’s immensely enjoyed working with and learning from his directors and castmates. You’ve probably seen Jacob in other shows around the Twin Cities, well, nowhere! This is his first show since graduating from Saint Olaf College ’21 with a voice performance degree, and he’s glad to be back on the scene. When he’s not at rehearsal, Jacob can often be found studying Russian language and Russian opera.


Joshua Zapata-Palmer

Josh (@joshiepalms) is honored to be making his debut with the GSVLOC alongside so many talented musicians. Most of his time is spent juggling creative projects as a multi-hyphenate actor, director, teacher, and producer in film, video, and theater. His recent work includes the upcoming fantasy web series, Hidden Falls and the magical world of Lalo’s Lunchbox. He has also collaborated with the National Theatre for Children, the Children’s Theatre Company, Open Window Theatre, Minnesota Opera, Minnesota Renaissance Festival, Lakeshore Players, Eagle Brook Church, and Valleyfair. Josh also loves to travel, hike, and watch movies with his wife, Ashley; if they ever find time outside of driving around in their 1973 Volkswagen Type 2 Bus! (@twincitiesphotobus)
