Frank Roberts

Technical Director-1999-2022

Frank Roberts was in the Performing Arts in some capacity for over 30 years.  As an actor he appeared in over 250 productions and as a Director he worked on over 100.  In 2006, Frank became a member of Actor’s Equity, the Professional Actor’s Union in Chicago.  Frank appeared as the Baritone soloist with the Wheaton Symphony and in numerous leading roles in various theatres throughout the Chicagoland area.  Collaborating with Brenda Didier on many theatrical productions including “Victor/Victoria” and “Mame”  was always a joy!  Frank enjoyed his collaboration with her in running the Annual June Performances as lighting, tech and prop director at the Lincolnshire Academy of Dance for 24 years. We lost our beloved Frank to cancer on October 5, 2022. We dedicated our 25th Anniversary Performances to Frank on June 10-11, 2023. Frank will live on in all of us at LAD and he will always be watching from the “best seat in the house!”
