Latest Show Bio

Christie Vellella (Mrs. Johnson) is excited to be returning to the Community Players stage with such an amazingly talented cast and crew!  She and her husband, Paul have performed in numerous Players productions, the most recent being Sister Act.  Some favorites have been Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, 1940s Radio Hour and Smokey Joe's Cafe. She has been seen in Holiday Spectacular, Celebrate America, and Broadway in Bloomington.  She has been fortunate to work with current cast members in productions with Coalescence Theatre and the Cemetery Walk. She thanks God and the production team for this opportunity to tell a truth that is often ugly, but ultimately full of hope.
