A founding member of Arizona Broadway, Rio appeared internationally in The Phantom of the Opera, and directed last season’s Leader of the Pack.
Director Dan Sharkey, who is a veteran of many Broadway productions, including The Music Man, Bridges of Madison County and Spider-Man; Turn Off the Dark, makes his FPST debut.
