Angie Kinnett (Director, Playwright) is so thrilled to be part of such a beautiful project and would like to thank everyone for helping make it possible for her to work on it. Being a mother of a three-year old, working full time, and the wife of a local actor who works out of town over the summers, she is happy to find a place where she can expel her creative energy with people who are willing to work around her needs. This is her third show she has directed for DTP, and she could not be more pleased with the talent and beautiful energy everyone has brought to the show. Angie has also directed two shows for another amazing theatre company, Theatre ‘d Art, and a student production while attending UCCS. Aladdin is her first full one act show she has written/adapted, and she is so happy to see how everyone made it come to life. She would like to thank everyone for their wonderful support and the many, many hands that were involved all over the community; she has truly loved every moment of this.
