April Lopez


Producing credits include:

“Grease” Chandler Center for the Art Summer Youth Musical, AR Gurney's The Dining Room (Producer/Director) A Christmas Carol Dessert Theater-Radio Show, Just the Player Community Theater, Once Upon a Mattress, Bye Bye Birdie, Heartland Players Theatre Company, (Inland Theater League Award) Alice in Wonderland, Arts and Learning.

Serving both community and professional theater companies in different roles over the last few decades, April moved to Vermont for a much needed change, after working as a funeral arranger in southern California during the pandemic. Although she enjoys all of the different aspects of theater, character acting has always been her favorite contribution to the arts. Some of her favorite theater experiences include historical shows presented for students at Lifehouse Theater, acting at the awesome Legendary Productions, narrating Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker along with University of Redlands Symphony Orchestra and all things Redlands Bowl, Southern California’s oldest free outdoor venue with crowds up to 6,000 a night.. She can’t wait to see all the magic that the Chandler Stage brings to Randolph.

Joshua Huffman


Joshua Huffman comes from Randolph, Vermont. He currently lives in Chicago and recently finished his MFA in the physical theatre practice of Embodied Dramaturgy from Columbia College Chicago. His practices include directing, acting, and devised theatre. He's currently working on storytelling through puppetry and is featuring this creative work in a festival through Arthaus Berlin in Berlin, Germany. This is his third summer youth musical as director for Chandler Center of the Arts. He's excited to continue working with central Vermont youth as they take the Chandler stage for the 25th year of the program.

Barbara "Babs" Mills

Stage Manager

Babs is very excited to be the Stage Manager of the phenom called “The
Youth Musical” for The Little Mermaid production. Hailing from NYC, Babs’
experience in theatre and backstage work came early in life when she was
part of a summer theatre experience for a number of years and was Props
assistant, Costume assistant and Assist Stage Manager. She has also
assisted in many productions throughout her theatre musings. Mostly an onstage actor and singer, this is her first full stint as Stage Manager in Vermont and is very excited to work with the whole theatre staff, directors, and children for this well-loved work. It is my hope that Chandler continues with their wonderful offerings of live theatre in this historic and beautiful venue. And that she can be an integral part of it. Please enjoy the show!!
