Linda really enjoys a good stage play. She sat many times watching and saying to herself “I can do that”. Her wish finally came true and her love for the performing arts rose to a new level when she performed as “Roxie The Jazz Singer in her first ever stage play “The Do Drop In” at the Publick Playhouse in June 2014. The "acting bug" took hold and she did not stop there.
