FC: Kevin Wurz | lmc mEMORY bOOK

1: "The three years I spent at LMC working on Kevin’s shows were wonderful and rewarding. I feel privileged to have been a part of The Mouse Trap, Inherit the Wind, The Nerd, Sweet Charity and Urinetown: The Musical. Kevin’s directing style cultivated a great sense of collaboration throughout each rehearsal process, and I made a handful of great friends in the midst of it all. I’m grateful for the time I spent under Kevin’s guidance; working with him has been instrumental in my pursuits as an actor." Enjoy your hard-earned retirement, Kevin Wurz! - Dan Maxon

2: Please thank Kevin for me- for being such a radiant shining star of positivity in my theater involvement. - Laura Gomex Adams

5: The year I went with a group to NYC with Kevin, we didn't sleep at all. One morning around 4am, three sheets to the wind, Kevin, I, and a couple of others were 'singing in the rain', dancing around the statue of George M. Cohan. The most fun I've ever had. And on a Chicago trip, Kevin needed a chaperone to 'get the best wings' at a local Hooters. I'm not too sure that he remembered that, except for the burning taste of the sauce after he came to later on. So long ago, we did Godspell - SO much fun, and I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to be involved. Being one of the (ahem) more 'mature' students, I'll never forget it. And the cast party - oy vay! Ah, life has always been a party, when Kevin's involved. What a dear man. I always think of him with a smile on my face and a warm fuzzy in my heart. Love you, Kev - - Diane Thompson Sample

8: The bestest of friends and the bestest of memories have been made on the Hanson stage. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you Kevin for being a great mentor, teacher, and friend. It's been an amazing 14 years and I feel very blessed to have been part of your team. -Emily Hosinski

10: Happy retirement, Kevin! You’ll be greatly missed there at LMC where you’ve helped a whole lot of young aspiring thespians get off to a good start (and given a lot of older ones – including me – the opportunity to exercise their seldom used talents)! If you’re like me, you won’t just fold up your tent and crawl off into the night. Some of the best years of your life are still ahead. Take my word for it, I know! So spread your wings! Come on out to TCP, come back and audition for some future LMC shows produced and directed by your successor. Volunteer your time and your many talents (I know a certain librarian who’s always looking for folks to read stories to kids). I retired in 1995 (had my retirement party right there at LMC after a performance of Little Shop Of Horrors, in which I played Mr. Mushnik) and have been going strong ever since, so I can speak with authority! So bless you, dear friend – and enjoy your next life! It’ll be great! - Steve Sizer

13: Working with Kevin has been a very enriching experience. I have learned a lot about theatre and how to improve my own acting skills from having him as both a teacher and a director. His shows were always of the highest quality, and I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to be a part of his productions. - Joey Huizar

15: I've only been able to work with Kevin for three shows and two classes. I was so incredibly excited when I was cast in Urinetown, not even expecting to be a part of the production and being shocked with a speaking role! I had a blast getting to know the entire cast and crew and knew that I just had to be in another one of Kevin's shows. When I enrolled at LMC last fall (2011) I learned about the upcoming auditions for Check, Please. Knowing that it was not a musical, I auditioned anyway and got to know K-Dawg on an even deeper level. Through Putnam as well, I've really grown as an actor thanks to the wonderful director in Kevin. I cannot believe that Kevin is retiring, but I really hope he enjoys his time and knows that all of the people he has directed will forever remember him as one of the greatest teachers we have ever had. - Ashley Bock

17: All through high school I was discouraged with the theatre department offered at my school. I didn't want that experience to damper my opinion of acting so I auditioned for a show at LMC hoping to prove myself wrong. When I auditioned for Fiddler on the Roof and was cast as one of the daughters, I was floored. The following year, I was one of the leads in The Fantasticks. Because of the opportunities Kevin gave me, I became hooked. He taught me how to be myself on stage or rather, how to be someone else. He taught me how to push myself as an actor and how to react to my cast mates. Most importantly, he taught me how to have fun on stage. When I heard he was retiring, I knew I had to audition for one of his last shows. I had the honor of being in his last fall play, Check, Please. Being in that show reaffirmed how much I love working with Kevin. I will forever remember the laughs his casts shared and the enthusiasm and hard-work he encouraged from everyone. I'm so glad to have worked with Kevin and wish him a wonderful retirement! - Aubrey Iwan

21: Kevin - Thank you for your years of dedication to the arts at LMC! For the rest of my days, I will draw on my time in your productions as a source of personal and creative inspiration. I really appreciated the balance between being accepted as a 'tight-knit, fun loving cast', to being challenged to improve as a performer and creative human being. LMC is an absolute gem of a school thanks to the earnest effort of professional educators like you. Enjoy your retirement -- all the best! -Brian Voss

22: Kevin, if I'd never met you I could have been an accountant or maybe even a real estate agent, who knows! Thanks for ruining my life. - Zak Sommerfield

26: In the fall of 2006 I enrolled in 2 of Kevin's theatre classes and was in the play a bad year for tomatoes. It was that semester that I realized I wanted to pursue theatre as my career. Not necessarily as an actor although it was my focus at the beginning. Kevin helped me tremendously. The time he spent in class and mainly our time one on one outside of it. He taught me the fundamentals of all aspects of theatre and which I apply today. I will forever be grateful for his wisdom and guidance through my time at LMC. He inspired to learn as much as I could about theatre in general. I hope he enjoys his well deserved retirement. - Brock Neubauer

27: It has been a wonderful, amazing, and fun experience working with Kevin. I appreciate everything he has done building the theatrical arts in Berrien County and improving the lives of others and only wish the best for him in the future. - Scott Burnett

28: After twenty-one years, Kevin has been an inspiration to many people as an educator, mentor and friend. With his talent and creativity he brought many people together through the love of the performing arts. As someone who has worked with Kevin through various shows over seventeen years, I can tell you that work with him is addicting and Lake Michigan College will miss his professionalism, enthusiasm for theater, and sense of community and family. Thank you, Kevin. It's been a wonderful ride and I hope it continues. -Becky Derbas Selvidge
