A message from Blue Fire Theatre:
We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. As we all navigate this very complicated time in our country, we wanted to try our best to keep up some normalcy. Part of what we do for our community as a local community theatre is help our volunteers and patrons, learn more about the craft of performing arts.
How do we do that? We do that through workshops, discussions and various classes.
So, we decided to go ahead and keep doing that, by hosting Facebook Live workshops / discussions Saturday afternoons at 1:00 pm.
Kristin Graf Sakamoto has served as a music director, director, choreographer, and/or performer for
over 50 productions in theatres across Florida and North Carolina. Recent work includes the roles
of Svetlana in Chess at CPCC and Nancy in Oliver! at Theatre Charlotte in Charlotte, NC, and directing Ebenezer: A Christmas Carol and helped create the Summer Musical Theatre Camp at ACT.
Kristin has also appeared in various roles at Walt Disney World as a singer/dancer, and she
performed with “4 Girls Only” in the Mel’s Drive-in 50’s Show at Universal Orlando.
Other favorite roles include Ruby in Dames at Sea, the title role in Peter Pan, Shelby in Steel Magnolias,
and Peggy in The Taffetas. Kristin is a classically trained pianist and accompanist, and she has
composed original vocal arrangements and collaborated on orchestrations for four musicals and
one operetta written by Frank P. Trimble. She currently lives in Huntersville, NC with her
husband Robert, 6-yr-old daughter Kate, and the kitten, Princess Mira Jemima Sakamoto.
One of our favorite theater quotes at Blue Fire is by Oscar Wilde:
“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”
Since we can't share being human beings in the theatre live and in person and together, we wanted to try to stay creative and connected in some way. So, until we can see each other face to face again, take good care and stay happy and healthy. Please remember, we are all in this together. We'll see you on the other side wiser and stronger from this experience and ready to take on the world!
