“Funny and warm … a middle-aged couple on the brink, figuratively and literally, light up The Empty Nesters.” - San Francisco Examiner
Helicopter parents facing the question of what they want to be when their kids grow up is the focus in the new comedy-drama The Empty Nesters by award-winning playwright Garret Jon Groenveld. This warm and witty look at a couple who drop their youngest child off at college and then take what may be a life-changing trip to the Skywalk at the Grand Canyon, is directed by Richard Seyd, and stars real-life empty nesters John (JW) Walker and Pamela Gaye Walker, who reunite on stage after a 20 year hiatus.
In The Empty Nesters, hard working parents Greg and Frances stop for a visit to the Grand Canyon’s breathtaking Skywalk, a not-to-be missed sight, after delivering their final child to college in Phoenix. But instead of seeing a limitless horizon full of fresh possibilities, one half of the couple faces an empty chasm, while the other begins to wonder if freedom is only a loss of solid footing.
John Walker is a film producer (The Incredibles - Academy Award®-Best Animated Picture, Tomorrowland, The Iron Giant) and actor, whose extensive theatre background includes 30 stage productions with his wife. Pamela Gaye Walker is an award-winning actress who has appeared in film, television, and on stages in New York, Chicago, and across the country.

She Sings is a truth inspired, original one woman musical show, derived from an amalgamation of many survivors' experiences. Its message is to empower and elevate those who have endured verbal, emotional and economic abuse telling the story of triumph over injustice in a world where love and kindness must prevail. The timing for adding a melodic voice to the radical healing movement already begun in our communities today could not be more crucial.
Bobby Braddock, Hall of Fame Songwriter says, "She Sings is a one-woman musical and the one woman is the incredibly talented Rebecca Magnuson. Rebecca is giving a voice to the voiceless...to survivors! It is called a "soaring musical," and I can emphatically say that it soars mightily! I will be in the front row on opening night. This is a must see!"
Singer-songwriter, composer, and concert pianist, Rebecca Magnuson, first caught the attention of Bob Doyle, Garth Brooks' business partner in Nashville, TN, who signed her songs to Garth's publishing company, Major Bob Music. Since then, Rebecca has had many songs published and recorded, and she has performed and concertized extensively throughout the US and internationally, including at the Kennedy Center.
