My Aunt Donna, because she is the bomb diggity and glides through life with extreme
grace. Mindy Upin and Tina Tidwell, because their passion and drive is RIDICULOUS!  Such ambitious, hardworking and deserving young women.

Why folks should see Ladle Weiss: because my handsome husband, David Brewer, is our front of house manager, who greets every audience member with an infectious smile.  Be on the look out!

And..because this show has heart and soul.  It is evident in the details, movement, dancers and choreography. I could not be more excited to share it with Asheville.FullSizeRender-3
