2014 PREMIERE PRODUCTION TEAM
Creator/Director: Alexander Diaz
At the heart of any successful project is its creator. There is certainly something to be said for the kind of passion, commitment, and ultimately, love that make this kind of project even possible. Alexander Diaz is a whirlwind of passion and creativity. He is abundant in love. In order to make his Dream a reality, Alex had to ask for a large commitment and sacrifice from many people. He could promise only love and joy in return. But his passion and leadership inspired the many. And his love proved a sweet enough reward. Read more about Alexander here. Read more about Alex’s Dream Team below: “A person is only as good as the support they get.”
Producer: James Salisbury
James Salisbury put an incredible amount of time and treasure into this project. Owner of three UPS Stores, he donated all the design work and printing for posters, programs, tickets – everything! He not only produced the show, helping to generate a ton of money to put on this show, he also designed AND built, almost single-handedly, the elaborate set for Joseph’s Dream, including rotating wall and even a small water pond! Jamie has been Alex’s sounding board from the very conception of the project, keeping him grounded. Never saying something couldn’t be done, it was always “Ok, Alex, let’s see what we can do.” His underlying support is what allowed Alex to create without worrying.
