Biography
WWelcome to my website. Since I’ve always loved reading stories and listening to music, it’s only natural that I’d try my hand at creating some of my own. I hope you’ll enjoy the ones you find here. Three youtube videos offer brief introductions to my three produced Broadway style musicals. Two free-download CDs show the wide range of my original tunes. And there are six of my published short stories, plus my blog. Here’s a bit about each of the stories: “The Blind Man” is about, well, who’s willing to cheat a blind man at the court house. “Stalking Jennifer Lawrence” is about a wacko who claims the movie star’s handlers keep stealing his ideas for her movie plots. “The Expert” is about Hemingway and an intense scuba diving experience in the keys. “Robin’s Installation” is about a sly saboteur wrecking an avant-garde art show. “Where It Rains” is about two young American hitchhikers who wind up in a vivid mountain town in 1970s Mexico. “Thirty-Six Rockers” is about the extreme effect of an auction on a grieving daughter. Thanks for dropping by my website. Leave me a message. I’d love to hear what you think.

David and Bathsheba

“The biblical story of David and Bathsheba has it all: bravery, intrigue, love, betrayal and retribution... A huge evening of family entertainment”

--Greg Gapsis, Jeffersonville Evening News

 

The story of Israel’s greatest king and warrior, who as author of the Psalms also is its greatest poet and song writer. From the young shepherd boy’s stone-flinging victory over Goliath to his consuming desire for the tempting Bathsheba, the show blends memorable music, a dramatic love story to wring the hardest heart, and a smattering of comedy.

Mark Twain On The River

A musical comedy fantasy by Bill Corcoran & Rick Neumayer

“The haunting number “A Pap Has a Job to Do” is filled with minor chords and roaring arpeggios that sound like crashing waves.... fast-paced, with quality songs and interesting choreography...”

--Sherry Deatrick, Louisville Eccentric Observer

 

A bankrupt city is about to turn its floating theatre into a casino when Mark Twain miraculously appears. This is a musical fantasy about miracles, fathers and sons, and love’s redemptive power. Some scenes have a familiar charm, but it’s a brand-new story that will surprise and delight a broad audience of all ages, but especially those who love Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Among others, the ensemble cast includes Twain, Tom, Huck, Aunt Polly, Pap Finn, Jim, Becky Thatcher, and Judge Thatcher.
