Spotlight on ‘Blythe Spirit’

February 8, 1989

This week CAT presents Steve Snyder and Barbara Ballas, who will play Dr. and Mrs. Bradman, in their upcoming production of “Blyth Spirit.” The Bradman’s are invited to attend the séance staged by Mr. Condimine to obtain occult jargon for a new book he’s writing.

Steve Snyder originally from Missouri, has lived in Johnson City for 4 years where he is a Park Ranger for the National Park Service at the LBJ Park. He debuted in a high school play he says no one would know, and tried to avoid acting for years but always finds himself involved.

Back home he worked for the Living History Farm where he portrayed a 1870’s doctor. He currently served on the Board of Governors for the Little Theatre of the Hills in Johnson City and was in their latest production “Wind Between the Houses.” He appeared in CAT’s production of “Barefoot in the Park” and helped with sound of “Marriage-Go-Round.”

Barbara Ballas moved to Blanco 7 years ago from New Orleans. She is the mother of two lovely daughters, Heather and Jessi. Barbara has worked behind the scenes in previous productions but will be making her debut in “Blythe Spirit” as Mrs. Brandman. She currently serves on CAT’s Board as Member at Large.
