What began as a 16-year-old's hobby is now a 78-year-old's full-time gig.
Director Pat Davis mines the talent of young people to create musical productions. She directs the young performing missionaries who sing and dance through Nauvoo each summer, as well as at-risk youths who perform at the Heritage School each year in Provo. The Heritage School will perform "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" this weekend.
"If you ask me about my training it came through the LDS Church and a bishop who cared about me," Davis said.
She was asked by her bishop at age 16 to oversee the ward roadshow, which she wrote, directed and starred in. She's been in show business ever since.
