Wes Wetzel was involved in the theatre and saw the ever-increasing need for senior plays for the many theatre groups in his area. So he attended courses in creative writing and began writing plays in 2006. His plays have been produced in his local area and are popular and very well attended. Wes’ plays in the ArtAge Senior Theatre Resource Center, Grand Moves and Hi Tech, are so popular that they have been staged all over the US and Canada but Wes thinks that Navy Bean Soup may be the best show he’s written. Wes is a graduate of Oregon State University and a retired U.S. Navy Commander.
