More About Tommy Martinez
After graduating from Bowie High School in 2001, Tommy Martinez traveled the globe, from cruise ships in Europe to regional theaters across the U.S. to Broadway ("Newsies") to "Hairspray Live!" on NBC. Tommy sings, dances and shares his story in this high-energy show. Joining Tommy on stage are his "Putnam County Spelling Bee" castmate, Laura Dadap, who is as talented as her stage persona, Marcy Parks, and Nimmy Weisbrod, a classically trained opera singer who got a full-ride scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory at John Hopkins University, but ultimately chose a more predictable career as a pediatric nurse. The trio brings an evening of fun and entertainment to the stage as they share what "living the dream" really looks like.
