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.

As a child he was inspired by the magic career of his great grandfather Howard Thurston, which makes him the fourth generation without a real job. Most children aspire to be a fire fighter and protect the public, or a doctor to protect the health of others, but Teagan aspired to be a magician and protect his virginity. After pursing magic in NYC and earning his B.A. in Political Science, he is putting his degree hard at work as a bartender when he isn’t doing magic shows.

Taking the dance halls, open mics and karaoke lounges by storm, Michael perfected his singing and dancing talents. He has been a country western dance instructor, a KJ show host and a lead singer for a very insignificant pop/rock cover band. Aside from profession and performances, Michael enjoys spending time with friends and family including 4 kids that are slowly ensuring his hair turns grey before he’s 50.

Ella Yates - Vaudevillian ~ Ella is from Fort Collins and was a public muralist for twenty-two years. The aim of her community murals was to guide multigenerational teams in transforming and beautifying their neighborhoods, churches, and schools, so the underserved could feel a sense of pride and ownership in their communities.
From Ireland to Thailand, The Gambia to Tasmania, and a dozen other countries, Ella directed her mural-painting teams in performing poetry, song, dance, skits, and motivational speeches for large assemblies, to commemorate the new murals. After these performances, many people asked her "Why are you not an actor?". Ella has been an avid lover of recitation and a lifelong musician, playing piano and harp for events and parties since her early teens. But she truly took to the stage after her move to Carbondale in 2020, eventually performing in Aspen Community Theater's "Mary Poppins", and the 2023 Spring and Holiday Shows at the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue.
Rio - Dogvillian ~ Rio is thrilled to be part of this show this season. As a young mom living on the streets of Livingston, TX with her 13 puppies, some wonderful folks realized she was bound for bigger and better things and helped her make her way to Glenwood Springs in the spring of 2021. When her foster mom brought her by to meet John, it was love at first sight! She is so happy to be able to come to work with John and learn the tricks of the trade from all the wonderful actors here at the Vaudeville. Rio’s favorite past times are watching John fly fish for hours by the side of the river, time up in the high country and visiting her foster mom and playing with Adeline and Cody. Rio hopes you’ll enjoy the show and remember when looking for a new pet “Adopt, Don’t Shop”. All pets deserve a chance to be stars!
