very active with the Drama Department at
Hillsborough Community College in Brandon. So
active in fact that I became Secretary of the Drama
club during my second year. Even the busy
schedule of school, work and being Secretary could
not keep me from performing in a "Who's Afraid of
Virginia Wolfe" and "A Brick and the Rose".

for "Butterflies Are Free".

Sandy Goldman - 4 to 7 y/o Instructor
Much of my life was spent
in Georgia where my love of performing first
began. Growing up I was a cheerleader,
model, and pageant winner, Community Theatre
performer, and lead singer in a local band.
If there was an
opportunity to sing or be on stage I took it. Thatís why I love Florida.
There are so many
small theater groups everywhere.
My husband and I owned and
operated a Pasco County childrenís gym for three
performances at the
gym for the 3 to 12 year old group included
Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Mickey Mouse Club,
annual Holiday performances and summer
I am the also the founder of H.I.P. Performers,
a homeschool performance group in Pasco County.
My passion for the theater and my love for
children is why I so excited to have the
opportunity to work with Showcase Youth
