The cast and crew comprised of adults from Potlatch to Genesee represent a good mix of quality talent available in our region. One of the most seasoned performers, Min Lee (Jerry, the Director), recently moved to the Palouse. A retired Firefighter of Los Angeles, Lee is an established Thespian who first stepped onstage in 1968. He became a regular at the LA City Theatre, Granada Community Theatre, and Key Productions. His stage credits include Amahl and the Night Visitors (Kasper), Carousel, West Side Story (Riff), My Fair Lady, Pirates of Penzance, Twelfth Night (Feste), and Open Any Door—a rock gospel musical.  His television credits include Family Matters, Tour of Duty, Jake and the Fat Man, Kirk, Perfect Strangers, and Melrose Place. Lee expressed gratitude to be back on stage with APOD Productions.  “I am having a lot of fun working with this incredibly talented cast . . . there has been no ego, just a big family doing their best to take the audience into a world of fantasy far from reality!” “And in this day and age, we need that,” said Lee.
