MJ Hartel

Appeared most recently at TheatreWorks in The Game's Afoot!  She cannot think of a better place to have a mid-life crisis than onstage at this well-loved theater.  M.J. thanks Debbie for this opportunity and for putting together such a great team. Favorite Theatreworks shows in which she has performed include:  Barefoot in the Park, Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge, Brighton Beach Memoirs, and Fuddy Meers.  M.J. has also performed at The Brookfield Playhouse, Ridgefield Theater Barn, Musicals at Richter and D'Art.  Presently, she is performing daily as a middle school English teacher at Talcott Mountain Academy for gifted and talented students. M. J. dedicates her performance to Liz Marek, her close friend and theater mentor who was killed in the terrorist bombing of Pan Am 103.
