John Goss - Artistic/ Managing Director/ Vaudevillian ~ John started his musical/theatrical life with the Albuquerque boy's choir where he quickly became a featured soprano singer representing the U. S. in a European tour in 1976. Having caught the musical bug, he became very involved with the Community Theatre in Albuquerque, having performed in 20 different productions including Bye Bye Birdie where he played the title role.
His first professional job was with the Great American Melodrama in Pismo Beach, CA. where he not only played “Fernand” in The Count of Monte Cristo but had his first Vaudeville experience. John spent the next 12 years bouncing from small resort-type theatres performing in over 100 different plays/musicals with vaudeville type after shows. Having directed and created many of these shows, this is where he learned the art of putting together a fun vaudeville type revue.
His more prominent acting roles include; “Dr. Jykle” and “Mr. Hyde”, “The Beast”, In Beauty and the Beast, “Dr. Frankenstein”, “Will”, in Oklahoma, “The Dentist”, in Little Shop of Horrors, “Matt”, in Fantastick’s and “Raoul”, in The Phantom. He later found himself at Boulder’s Dinner Theatre going to and from there, to working in Denali, Alaska and performing on cruise ships.
The Crystal Palace brought John to the Roaring Fork Valley where he met some of the most talented people in the state and decided to finally plant himself in this beautiful setting where he has directed or performed in virtually every theatrical venue around. He has choreographed many shows for Aspen Community Theatre where he directed and choreographed "The Music Man" in 2009.
John has had the dream of opening a small vaudeville theatre for over twenty years and it has finally come to fruition. With a wonderful building, in a beautiful location and an incredibly talented cast he hopes this will eventually become an icon and focal point for the people of the Roaring Fork Valley.
