  • Ilana Bruce (Little Inez) is one of five alums from the FAC Youth Repertory program.
  • Carmen Vreeman (Penny Pingleton) has been on this blog before, in 2009!
  • Lacey Connell (Amber Von Tussle) can do impeccable child impersonations (source).
  • Marco Robinson (Link Larkin) works as a tap dance instructor at The Ballet Society of Colorado Springs (source), and takes amazing photos. For an example, see his Facebook album of the FAC's Resilience show, Within/Without.
