Stan and Carol are long-time Kearneyites who are enjoying their retirement – Stan from teaching Geography at UNK and Carol from the Central Mediation Center. Both Stan and Carol (and their daughter Jessica) have been involved in Kearney’s theatrical scene for more than 40 years. Stan’s first stage adventure was as Charley Cowell – Anvil Salesman in Kearney Community Theater’s 1984 production of The Music Man and his most recent role was opposite Chuck Peek in their reprise of The Sun Shine Boys (2001 and 2015). In between there have been some 30 other KCT roles from The King in The King and I (1987), the Captain in Mr. Robert (1986 and 2002), Horace Vandergelder (Hello Dolly 1991), Grandpa in On Borrowed Time (1989 and 2004) and Mr. Potter (It’s a Wonderful Life -1998 and 2009). The Dart’s other interests include enjoying their grandchildren, book clubs, Senior College classes, golf, summer nights listening to Kearney’s great musical family and that special winter month in the Arizona desert. “Hey, Steve – Thanks for asking.”
