Meet the Paroo Family
The Paroo Family
Rachel Bigelow (Marian) ~ Rachel is excited to be performing in her second Heritage Players production, having previously played Belinda in Noises Off last Spring. Rachel has a BA in Theatre Arts from the University of Minnesota where she studied acting, scenic artistry, and stage management. She currently works as a special education teacher and directs high school plays. She has enjoyed playing opposite her husband, Jon, (for the first time ever!) and thanks you for supporting Heritage Players.
Gavin Schueller (Winthrop) ~ The Heritage Players welcomes Gavin for his first on stage role in a community theater production. Although he is no stranger to volunteering with this group! Gavin has spent many hours helping with stage crew work and set construction. He previously performed in “School House Rock Live, Jr”, the elementary musical earlier this spring. His favorite part about this show… having Rachel play his big sister “Marian”.
Joni Nelson (Mrs. Paroo) ~ Joni’s previous plays with Heritage Players are “She Loves Me” and “Quilters.” She has been playing piano and singing for what seems like forever. Including doing music ministry and giving piano and voice lessons. She has enjoyed doing this play with two of her awesome children and she would love to thank the rest of my family for painfully listening to her experimentation with an Irish accent.
