I just found this!! How exciting-My sister and I both performed with Tom Thumb players for several years as kids in Chicago. We were active from about 1968-1972. I was in "Once Upon a Mattress", "The Sound of Music", "Heidi", and "The King and I". I have wonderful memories of the other performers, both my age and older, who left a lasting impression on me to this day. We also took ballet with Miss Melba.
I remember when Mr Netsky's daughter passed away. He still came to the studio to work with us. Unbelievable stuff! Any former students, please reply.
