Susan Metzger has appeared all over the metroplex in many theatre roles, but Always, Patsy Cline remains one of her all time favorites! Susan’s country roots go deep. She was once a regular on the Grapevine Opry (performed with Box Car Willie and Shoji Tabuchi), she appeared on The Jonnie High Country Music Review and her first job out of Baylor was as a disc jockey for KCLE right here in Cleburne! Add to that, she is married to Rob, the very best two steppin’ partner you’ve ever seen! Much love to my beautful daughters who bless my heart with their strong faith and their sweet encouragement! Thanks also to the wonderful Plaza producers, JTAM, to the band for their talent, to Soni for her seamstress skills, and to Shauna & Jay Lewis for their hard work on this show. I dedicate my performance to my beautful Mother, Linda Stovall who will turn 80 years young this July 13th. Happy Birthday Mother, your life is a beautiful inspiration to many, I love you! Psalm 104:33
Shauna is happy to be back on the Plaza stage, most recently being seen as Mrs. Medlock in THE SECRET GARDEN. Favorite past roles include Ouiser in STEEL MAGNOLIAS and the Wicked Witch in WIZARD OF OZ. During the day, Shauna spends her time in the halls of Smith Middle School here in Cleburne. TCU alum with a MS in Speech. Baylor alum by marriage.
