   Creative Director - Paul Webster-Greene

Paul D. Webster Greene    Is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with the talented members of this production. His theatre background spans over 40 years with multifaceted roles and responsibilities. Early in his vocal career, after building a following with his show band, Paul discovered that performing up and down the eastern seaboard and the cross country trips for his demands as a performer in Las Vegas, was “living his life out of a suitcase”.

 

Having discovered his comfort on-stage and in the spotlight, Paul began a long and rewarding career in Musical Theatre. Playing major lead roles and honing his craft on-stage, he began to study the role of the behind-the-scenes discipline and creative rewards of set design, choreography, lighting, costume design and eventually Director.

An eager student of the arts, Paul founded The Friendship Company and produced popular Dinner Theatre at the Cardinal Restaurant. He continued to play lead roles with local companies including Marblehead Little Theatre, Revere Playmakers and Colonial Chorus. These venues afforded him the opportunities for his passion for Directing as well.

Following a stint for The North Shore Music Theatre, as a Drama Director for the Children’s Theatre Department, Paul simultaneously founded the North Regional Theatre Workshop. Paul will be the first person to admit that the demands of the Performing Arts can be exhausting, clearly it is also his oxygen. He has studied dance and has taught at Boston area studios including both the Gourley and Galli Studios. Over the years he has been Music Director for The Union Congregational Church and the Martins Pond Baptist Church in North Reading, MA. Despite all of his training, studying, accumulated degrees and certificates, Paul takes a great deal of joy in describing his greatest accomplishment as “ Having earned his Masters Degree in Musical Theatre from ‘ The School of Hard Knocks ‘ “

 

Today, Paul continues to be the Resident Director for NRTW, now in its 39th year, is the Minister of Music for The First Church Congregational, Methuen, is the Chair of the Methuen Cultural Arts Council and serves on the Methuen Historical Society Board of Directors and the Methuen Festival of Trees and continues to run his business, Webster Greene Antiques and Interiors. Paul’s motivation for his long and illustrious career is summed up in his oft quoted mantra…”May the Music never end…”!

Choreographer -

 A native Bostonian and former scholarship student and apprentice with the Boston and Joffrey Ballets, Ms. Mazzulli received her BFA with a major in Theatre/Jazz Dance and minor in Dance Education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA where she was presented with the “Outstanding Jazz Dance Performance” Award in her senior year.  Upon graduation, Ms. Mazzulli returned home to Boston and, in 1992, joined the ranks of Rainbow Tribe, The Dance Company in its first year of existence performing under the direction of fellow Boston native, the late great Carleton T. Jones.  She has since transformed the ensemble into Rainbow Tribe, Inc., a 501(c)(3) Massachusetts non-profit organization dedicated to embracing and celebrating diversity by educating through the art and joy of dance in all its different shapes, forms and sizes.  As a recipient of a choreographer’s grant for the 1999 “Boston Moves” sponsored by Dance Umbrella, Ms. Mazzulli is known for her innovative and original choreography which has been showcased at diverse venues throughout the East Coast.  In 2003, she was honored to be guest speaker at the Eastern Association of Colleges and Employers (EACE) Conference ”Pathways to Success in the Arts”.  Ms. Mazzulli was appointed to the Executive Committee of The Boston Dance Alliance in March 2006, and passionately served until December 2010.  Concurrently, she served 15 years as Rainbow Tribe, Inc.’s Executive Artistic Director and President and retired her position in June 2012 after celebrating the organization’s 20th Anniversary milestone. Today, she holds the titles of Rainbow Tribe, Inc.’s Artistic Director Emerita and Honorary Trustee and remains an active Member on the organization’s Board.  After a 15 year hiatus, Ms. Mazzulli is tickled pink to be welcomed back again to choreograph for the Winton Club family (prior Cabarets 1997, 1998, 1999, 2002).  "A Message in the Music!" is especially meaningful to Mary for it marks her 5th Winton Cabaret and 20th year of kindred friendship with the fabulous Avis Somerville, the Winton Organization, and many of its selfless, talented volunteers.  Ms. Mazzulli is also a freelance choreographer, dance instructor, advisor and mentor for Lynnfield High School Music Department, Northeast School of Ballet, Lyric Stage Company, City Year, DEA Youth Dance Program (a part of the DEA Educational Foundation) and Youth Protection Advocates in Dance (YPAD), as well as a proud Foster parent for Quincy Animal Shelter.
