In real life he goes by Ted Christensen and he says:
‘When I was young I heard that you got to kiss girls in plays. I tried out for the lead, George, in Our Town and got it, but was too embarrassed to kiss the girl and haven’t had a chance since.
When I tried out for The Music Man I tried for a lead role. They told me to try the chorus. When I tried out for the chorus they told me I was a dancer.
For Carnival I was the Doctor (veterinarian) and a dancer. In Carousel I was the Star Keeper and the Doctor. This was my one and only solo. I was never invited to sing again.
My career in acting also included roles as the Father in Aurelia, a parent in Because of Elizabeth, Mr. Byrd in A Byrd’s Christmas Carol, the Mime in The Fantasticks, Judge/Dancer in Hello Dolly (I still can’t do the Russian dance), a Son in Rat Catcher’s Daughter, the Announcer in Sunshine Boys, the Cardinal (Villain) in The Three Musketeers (a melodrama).
I participated in Lights Up On Broadway where lots of people got to laugh at my singing. They laughed at my monologue too. Those conducting the training said my monologue was good enough to get me a part on Broadway — If you can believe that.
More recently I participated in Bible videos which can be seen online. If you look closely you may be able to recognize my back or my feet or my hands.”
Hey! I’m Annie Jones, most charming and brilliant resident of Idaho Falls. I love running, music, art, reading and writing. I am Queen of the Bookworms and Captain of the Nerds. If you get me talking about something I like, you won’t be able to shut me up. So beware.
I volunteer at my local hospital, and I love science and literature. Math is… less than my favorite. I have also been reliably and repeatedly informed that I am really, really weird. So, that’s me: the nerdy, running oddball.
