Abby Frank to Make Directorial Debut

Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. is thrilled to introduce Miss Abby Frank as director of the upcoming production Guys & Dolls!

You may recognize Abby as Dorothy Gale, Ariel, or Philia from ASPI’s productions of The Wizard of Oz (2015), Footloose (2019), and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (2021).
Miss Frank has been involved in ASPI since 2015, her sophomore year of high school, and she brings with her 12 years of theater experience.

Abby currently works as a nanny and in the Fall of 2022 she will begin classes at NWTC to become an automotive service technician. When not acting, Abby can be found on the stage at the Green Room in De Pere, as she has gotten back into comedy. Outside of theater, Abby also takes pole classes at Aerial Dance in De Pere.

For the past 6 years, ASPI has been a second home to Abby. One special memory Abby holds is from her junior year in high school when she was part of ASPI’s production of Annie. Unfortunately, one of the showtimes was on the same day as her junior prom. Though she tried to make it work to attend both, she ended up having to miss the prom. When the rest of the cast, crew, and production team found out, they all threw a ‘prom’ at the theater for her. Everyone put on big dresses from the costume room, played music, and Abby was named “prom queen”, tiara and all.

Abby, with her experience both on and off the stage, along with the talented cast and crew, are ready to transport audiences to the streets of New York to meet a gambler, a crap game manager, a showgirl, and a missionary. Will opposites attract? Place your bets!

“I’m honored to have such a wonderful cast, crew, and production team behind me as I make my directorial debut. And I can’t wait for everyone to see it [the production]!” – Director Abby Frank
