The Klein Family

Three generations of Klein’s: Grandfather Jim, his son Aaron, and Aaron’s children Abby and Fisher

• What got them started at ASPI?
o Jim- “Getting back on stage and doing the Wizard of Oz was on my bucket list in 2015.”
o Fisher- “Then Grandpa got us three into it.”

• What draws them to ASPI?
o Jim- “It’s just like a big theater family.”
o Abby- “They’re friendly!”

• How does it feel to be involved in ASPI as a family?
o Aaron- “It’s a very rewarding experience to be here with my kids. Fisher has helped me run the sound, the audio, the video. It’s rewarding for me to be able to see him see the benefits of that. It’s cool for the younger siblings to be able to see grandpa, dad, and two siblings up on stage.”
o Jim- “It’s pretty cool! This is probably the only time it’s ever going to happen that we can all be in the same production at the same time. It takes a lot of support from the home front. My wife (Kim), she’s all behind this 100 percent. She helps out here too sometimes.”

• Favorite family activity outside of ASPI
o The Klein family enjoys tubing on the Oconto River, canoeing, fishing, and having campfires.
