I have taught elementary school in both private and public schools since graduating from Michigan State University. Most recently I have enjoyed many years as Music Specialist at Emerson Elementary School. Partnering with co-teachers and since 2003 with Tim Noah, I have co-written and directed many student productions as well as teaching theater classes. Since 2004 "Cyndi Soup" has been my stage persona and, as such, I have performed publicly for families both locally, nationally, and internationally.
In 2003, Tim Noah and I envisioned an artistic environment where we could connect with neighbors, friends, and community. Since then we have seen this little idea of "community performing arts center" grow in leaps and bounds. Connection and opportunity are what this little theater is all about. When you walk in the 4th Street doors for a performance, the lobby and volunteer staff welcome you, the halls welcome you, the auditorium delights you, and we work very hard to make sure the performance delights you. You will find our auditorium is so intimate, it feels like you can reach out and touch the performers.
On any Thursday you can schedule a voice, guitar, ukulele, or piano lesson. Friday afternoons your children can attend our musical performance classes. Wednesday evenings we host Crackpot Comedy Cavalcade workshops. Every Friday night, many put those lessons to work at our weekly Open Mic. If you don't want to perform, then come and enjoy an evening of humor and local talent. The rest of the weekend is reserved for performances by local and national talent. Tim Noah Thumbnail Theater is here for you to enjoy. We are always happy to get feedback from our patrons; we welcome your ideas and your volunteer help. It takes a village to raise a community performing arts center.
