Audience of One Productions began with the vision of having Broadway quality theatre available in Wilson County. Angie Dee, founder and director, walked into Capitol Theatre and envisioned talented young actors performing Broadway shows on this remarkable stage. With a dream and the help of the Holy Spirit, Angie began to take flight with launching Audience of One’s first production 2015 Into the Woods followed by sold out productions of Beauty and the Beast and A Christmas Carol Musical 2016. The summer of 2017 was a huge success with our first Jr. Show: Peter Pan Jr. Broadway version followed by the outstanding 10 show run of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! The 2018 Season is off to a strong start. With Singin’ in the Rain and Little Women Broadway Musical, Seussical Jr. and West Side Story in the books we are focused on MARY POPPINS!
Angie Dee is the Founder and Director of Audience of One Productions. Having the honor of directing in this amazing venue is a dream come true for Angie.

Rebecca Poole was trained classically from a young age, and continued her study at The School of Nashville Ballet, Vanderbilt Dance Program, and various summer intensive studies such as North Carolina Dance Theatre and Nashville Ballet. While a student, she was selected to perform with the Nashville Ballet Youth Ensemble and Vanderbilt Dance Theatre.

She continued her dance studies as a dance minor and performed with MTSU Dance Theatre. After graduation from MTSU, Rebecca began a career as a professional Ballroom Dancer and instructor.
Rebecca is passionate about sharing the gift of dance, because she knows it is given from God. She has been blessed to not only share in the United States, but abroad as well. Her first experience teaching ballet internationally was in 2011 on a mission trip to Haiti with the organization myLIFEspeaks. In 2014 Rebecca studied abroad independently in Uganda, where she taught ballet and photography classes at a school and home for orphaned children. She loves how God uses dance to break down language and cultural barriers and allows people to connect, celebrate, and worship together as children of God.
