Tuey's personality on stage is an unlikely blend of “regular guy” and “quirky oddball,” which means everyone can relate to his charm and humor. Tuey’s show is a perfect blend of family-friendly comedy, jaw-dropping skills, and danger.

Retired Costume Designer Anne Holen will instruct the first workshop in the series. Ms. Holen enjoyed a career that took her across the country teaching costume construction at universities and working at a variety of theatres as a Costume Shop Supervisor, Seamstress, and Dresser.
