Ode to late actor, shows, ‘Doubt” review and more

October 4, 2012
By MICHAEL PULLIAM (mauibackstage@gmail.com) , For The Maui News

This week's column was supposed to be all about the openings of Maui's 2012-13 theater season. But sadly Maui lost one of its most influential, talented and beloved members of the theater community on Friday night. Bill Schnitzer, most recently seen in ProArts' "Cinderella," has passed of a heart attack. His contributions on stage and off, as well as his kind charitable donations, will be sorely missed but not forgotten. Bill had recently auditioned to participate in the upcoming Maui OnStage production of "the Wizard of Oz." Perhaps it is apropos that he won't be able to perform because when it came to heart, brains and courage, Bill had plenty to spare. He will always be remembered by those who had the luxury to perform with him as a man with a smile on his face, a beautiful laugh and an awful lot of love and knowledge to share. So until we meet again, Bill, as you sang in last year's production of "A Christmas Carol," God rest ye merry, gentle man.
