Marlaina Pacifico Wills has photographed shows and events at The Mishler Theatre for years. On today's show, the local photographer and owner of "Grin Gallery", shows us her unique view, through her camera's lens.
Marlaina has lended her photography talents to Altoona Community Theatre, J and P Productions and the Allegheny Ballet Company just to name a few.
Her mother was a choreographer and asst. director at ACT when Marlaina was a child. Marlaina says her mother's involvement in the theatre sparked a love of performing.
Her dream was to be in musical theatre. Now, she has taken that love to a whole new level by photographing productions. Her work offers a new and unique perspective on theatre life and the bonds it creates between all those who are involved in each production.
