“Committee of Two” and “Committee of Eight”
Some 50 years after Joyce studied Speech at Northwestern University, her path crossed with a 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 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! based at Oakton Community College in Skokie, Illinois. From 2009-12, she created and directed the intergenerational Spotlighters at the Wilmette Theatre in Wilmette, Illinois. For 23 years, Joyce was a member of the Joseph Jefferson Awards Committee, which awards excellence in Chicago professional theatre.
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 in Surprise, Arizona. The Music Club also produced the premiere of Committee of Eight in 2019. She has directed several productions from the ArtAge catalog for the SCG Drama and Comedy Club Cabaret Players.

In the show:
Allan Kaye’s musical expertise has enhanced the Chicago musical scene for over five decades, as a concert pianist, musical conductor, orchestra leader for social and corporate events, and director of an entertainment organization covering musical groups, dancers and vocalists. Though he is retired from the business side of music, he loves the continuing challenge of ongoing musical opportunities. Allan has been musical director for many of Joyce’s musicals in the Chicago area and has been delighted to continue partnering with her in Committee of Two, Committee of Eight, and An Intergenerational Salute to Movie Music at Sun City Grand.
Committee of Two is available for bookings in the West Valley/Phoenix area.
