ABOUT THE AUTHOR/DIRECTOR

Stephanie Reif

has a passion for life that comes through
her voice, her music, and her written word. Her taste in music
is eclectic, and over the years has included British folk,
Rock & Roll, R&B, Middle Eastern, Arabic, Eastern European,
Salsa, Reggae, and World Beat. She has sung at venues
ranging from the Renaissance Faire to Reggae on The River.

All along she’s had a special love for musical theater, on stage
as well as behind the scenes. Stephanie feels that, in this all
too serious world, we need to laugh, including at ourselves.
Left of Oz is guaranteed to lighten the hearts of all who see
it.

By day, Stephanie has worked in health care all of her adult
life, caring for the underserved. She strives to spread good
cheer and hopes that what she brings to the stage will also
be a healing art, spreading smiles and laughter.

One of Stephanie’s mottos is, Life is a Series Of Song Cues.
