Cliff Cook, Costuming
I was born in Alabama and raised in New Jersey. I was a registered nurse in the Philadelphia, PA area from 1971 until I retired in 2008. My only musical entanglement was as a member of the Youth Choir in the AME church and occasionally humming a happy tune while listening to the radio. But that all changed when I met Judy Hurley (Way Way Off Broadway Players producer and director) who heard me singing at karaoke in 2009 and encouraged me to audition for a singing part with a local community theater group. And, as they say, the rest is history. I have been a member of The Dorels since its inception in the spring of 2011, contributing as a lead singer, second tenor, baritone and bass. I have been married to my lovely wife Marcella (The Stage Wife) for 42 years and have lived in The Villages since 2006.
