An engineer by day and playwright by night. Glockcoma was born out of a “honey-do list” from my wife Susan. At first, I was not sure what I had heard: take out the garbage, shovel the snow, oh and write a play themed after one of Rachel’s songs. Well I accepted the challenge and wrote Glockcoma which previewed in NYC 2016 it was well received nominated for 2 awards.” I decided to start the art of theatre to bring in an opportunity to showcase local writers and give them a platform to display
Sue Rotay wears many hats in this company she has had many experiences through the years from working in costume design set design backstage etc.. Recently nominated in NYC for best costume design for Glockcoma. I am looking forward to promoting the theatre name and helping it form a very likable and reputable name in the Howell Livingston Co community.

Currently a DMA (Digital Media Arts) student at Specs Howard School for Media Arts. Videography has become my passion, I've been freelancing my own videos for a couple years now and just fell in love with the art of provoking a feeling/telling a story through a video lens. I just want to say how excited and thankful I am to be given the opportunity to work with the Art Of Theatre.

Choreographer, Amber Samuel, has been a part of the dance industry for nearly her
entire life. Amber started dancing when she was only 2 years old, competing when
she was 6, winning numerous awards, including a scholarship to dance in London,
England. She was a member of Theatre Arts Performing Project during her high
school years, which was an audition-based program that not only gave her theater
and acting experience, but also the chance to choreograph musicals. She opened
up her own dance academy at age 19, teaching many styles of dance to all age
groups with all ability levels, from recreational to competitive. Amber has moved
on from having a large studio to now having a private-based studio at her home in
Linden, where she also continues to choreograph for various theater companies.
