John was recently in a play "Crazy for You" in which he was an actor, singer, dancer and played the Bass!

Below are some pictures of John in the Play at Community Christian School in Tallahassee, Florida



John is 16 and in 11th grade. He enjoys mechanics, piano playing, and now acting! Although he played bass in the orchestra in Beauty and the Beast, this is his first acting role. John has wanted to get into acting for a while, and he really likes Gershwin music, so he's excited to be part of this production. John hopes to become a restaurant/event pianist. He would like to thank Jesus, his dad, his sister, and everyone involved in the CCS plays for getting him in Crazy for You.

Besides the piano, John also is a tremendous Bass Player!

Hours a week were spent in practice and rehearsals.
