Curtain Call Meet and Greet with Christie Baugher
The next composer in our meet and greet series hails from Floyds Knobs, Indiana. Christie Baugher has been honing her theatrical skills since high school. Music, however, has been a constant presence in her life since she was young due to family traditions and piano ear training. You may wonder why musical theatre? She shared, “Musical theatre in particular drew me in because, to my mind, it’s the perfect art form. It fuses storytelling and visual art and music in a way that creates empathy for and explores the dignity of characters that an audience might not otherwise care about.” I can personally think of so many musical theatre characters who commit wrongful acts, but we as audience members still feel empathy towards them.
