Colin's Story

1985

Early Childhood
Colin put on plays and musicals in his backyard, basement, and family home in the Catskills with friends and neighbors. He was always the director, producer, and usually star of the show at just 5 years old.
St. Mary School
Colin had his first solo in the 3rd Grade when he received a standing ovation and his parents realized that he could sing... he was bit by the bug. In 5th Grade, Colin co-wrote and produced "Miracle at the Mall" (loosely based on Miracle on 34th St.) for the whole school.  He played Santa.

Colin Meets Rosie
As his 8th Grade Class President at St. Mary's, Colin appeared many times on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show." He ended opening up Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure with her and co-hosting the show for a week. He was always OBSESSED with Rosie because of their similarities and for her love of Broadway. He just knew he had to be friends with her.
