“Committee of Two” and “Committee of Eight”
Some 50 years after Joyce studied Speech at Northwestern University, her path crossed with former classmate. They shared life experiences only to discover they both still loved and were performing musical theatre, now as ‘aging ingenues.’ Thus, Committee of Two was born, and then came Committee of Eight.
Joyce Stern Greenberg, who wrote and performs in Committee of Two, was a show biz kid and has worked over the years as a singing comedienne, actress, teacher, director, producer, writer, and host of a cable television series. From 1986-96, Joyce was producing artistic director of the senior performing troupes, Acting Up! and Acting Up Too! From 2009-12, she directed the intergenerational Spotlighters at the Wilmette Theatre in Wilmette, IL.
In addition to performing Committee of Two in Chicago and Arizona, Joyce directed An Intergenerational Salute to Movie Music, featuring a cast of 35, sponsored by the Sun City Grand Music Club. The Music Club also produced the wonderfully received premiere of Committee of Eight in 2019. She is on the script selection committee and has directed several productions from the ArtAge catalog for the SCG Drama and Comedy Club Cabaret Players.
