Music Director Named for Drama Camp 2020
The Pinewood Players Drama Camp Steering Committee is proud to announce that Sandra Dyke has accepted the position of Music Director for Drama Camp 2020.
Sandra determined at an early age that music would be an important factor in her life. Her first vocal solo at age 12 sealed the deal. She pursued her music career and earned a degree in Voice and Music Education from the University of Louisville. Sandra lived her commitment to music as a junior high choir director for 27 years before moving into administration and later serving as a school principal. She also shared her talent and love of music throughout her life volunteering as a church choir director and youth handbell director in several Phoenix area churches. She has directed annual musicals and cantatas including an adaptation of “The Wizard of OZ,” “Amahl and the Night Visitors” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
Since her retirement Sandra has become a regular on the Pinewood Playhouse stage in recent years including her portrayal of Sammy Jo in “Southern Fried Funeral” in 2018 and her brilliant performance as Claire in last season’s “A Delicate Balance.” She also found time to perform in the Pinewood Country Club’s Mystery Dinner Theater last June.
We cannot wait to experience her collaboration with award winning children’s theater director Dale Nakagawa on next year’s block buster Drama Camp production, to be announced very soon.
Please join us in welcoming Sandra to our Drama Camp 2020 staff. This is shaping up to be an exceptional season. And why not? We will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pinewood Players and the 19th consecutive year of our Drama Camp tradition. We expect this to be a season to remember!

Don’t let this opportunity escape! Give them the memory of a lifetime! Pre-registration information will be sent out soon! Sign up to insure a spot for your child or grandchild!
