The Daily News: ‘Bard Talk’ reveals Shake on the Lake experience at Groveland prison

Members of the Shake on the Lake theater troupe have spent the past week inside Groveland Correctional Facility.
The troupe, which will begin to stage Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” throughout the Genesee Valley in the coming week, presented a series of theatrical workshops and helped inmates prepare a theatrical piece of their own.
The prison program was part of “Voices UnCaged,” a project created by Shake’s Interim Artistic Director Chad Bradford that brings theater arts into prisons. The project was awarded a Creative Community Fellowship through the National Arts Strategies organization, which supports the development of community outreach projects.
Groveland is among the first sites to take part in “Voices UnCaged.”

To Broadway Music

1975 Photo
George currently resides in Western New York. He has been married to his wife Diane since 1975 and has 3 adult biological children (Jason, Brian, Kristy) as well as 3 adopted children (Alicia, Anthony & Marina) and 4 grandchildren (Brianna, Colin, Logan & Paul).

Music has always been an outlet for George and after he joined the choir in his local church he was selected to sing solos. He now ministers in testimony and song, and uses his music to help people have a closer walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
 He has ministered in many countries and in many different venues.
George Miller uses Broadway music and even opera to express the
spiritual depth of some of these marvelous lyricists.
