Sunset could not be more thrilled to point the spotlight on volunteer, Barb Zaferos!
How did you first start volunteering at Sunset?
I began ushering for some Sunset productions in the fall of 2021, wanting to be involved and having been a fan of this theater since performing as a kid in children’s shows here and in two large-scale summer musicals in the 1970s.
Do you have a funny Sunset story?
To me it is funny that one of my first roles here in a children’s production was “Rumpelstiltskin” complete with a beard and as part of the ensemble in “Something Rotten,” the beard came back to haunt me. 🙂
When you’re not at Sunset, what do you like to do?
A few things include my work as research editor at the Milwaukee Business Journal; traveling to see my two daughters, two grandchildren and to granddogs in Boston and Nashville; a bit of summer vegetable gardening; and following UW-Madison and Wisconsin professonal sports teams when I can.
What’s your favorite part about theater?
Well, I’ve always loved the performance aspect of theater and being an integral part of the process of putting on a production – seeing the pieces all come together. Witnessing the dedication of so many workers and volunteers here at Sunset in many capacities is really inspiring and it is good to feel like a small part of that. But you’ll also find me in the audience, when possible, supporting the wide range of theatrical productions going on all around the Milwaukee area.
THANK YOU ON BEHALF OF SUNSET PLAYHOUSE AND OUR PATRONS!
