Radio Theatre: The pursuit of dreams, the defeat of obstacles ... (and a dash of sex and violence)

Renegade Theater Company is not just in the middle of three shows right now: Seminar runs through May 14, Marie Antoinette opens in July and auditions are coming up for Stephen Sondheim's Assassins.

They also hope to set the 2017 season by next month ... and Development Director Andy Bennett says the emerging theme of their season selection seems to be people going after their dreams despite unexpected obstacles -- but, of course, with a Renegade twist.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
