Catherine Miller (Production Assistant)
Catherine Miller (Production Assistant) first fell in love with Kit Goldstein Grant's music in 2001, when she was in the chorus of the Niskayuna Acting Troupe's production of Tapestry: The Knight's Quest and could not stop singing the songs! Since then, she has crewed several of the Schenectady Theater for Children's productions of Kit's musicals, including The Mermaid of Edam, It's Raining Tamales! and Androcles and the Lion, and most recently served as assistant director and stage manager for a children's production of The Mermaid of Edam at Steamer No. 10 Theatre. Catherine was delighted by The Wrong Box when she first saw it performed at Union College in 2002, and has been thrilled to be part of the process of making this studio recording. She is often aided by Albert Einstein, at right, who likes to sit on the piano or in a chair during rehearsals, sit in a "wrong box", and otherwise help out the production team. Einstein's favorite characters in The Wrong Box are Uncle Joseph and George Wickham, and his favorite song is "What A Mess", because it accurately describes the state of his hair (among other things).
