Bob Eichner Announced As Stage Manager
We are pleased to introduce our Stage Manager for this summer's production, Bob Eichner. He has been involved with Lakeshore Productions for over 20 years. Bob's first involvement with LPI was back in 2003 when his daughter Kaylin was a cast member in Crazy for You. Bob joined the board of directors later that year and then 'retired' from the board 18 years later. He was president of the board for 14 years and watched a lot of kids grow up on the LPI stage, including most of the current board members.
Bob started performing in 2005, portraying Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast, which is still one of his favorite roles. Once he heard the audience laugh at one of his corny lines, he was hooked. Bob has been either onstage or backstage every year since. He fulfilled a bucket list item when he portrayed George Banks in Mary Poppins. Other favorite roles of Bob’s have been Mr. Salt in Willie Wonka, Mr. Bumble in Oliver, Ali Hakim in Oklahoma, and Thing 2 in Seussical.
Bob is so excited to be a part of the production staff as stage manager, this year. He is very much looking forward to being a part of this side of the show.
