ACT THREE materialized from the persistent dreams of three Southern California friends, Lynn O’Hearn Wagner, Judy Whitmore, and Bill Grubman. Each had planned on a life in musical theater but–no surprise–real life responsibilities sent them down different paths. Bill was an executive in the paper industry, Lynn was an executive in the advertising business, and Judy was a Marriage and Family Therapist and author. At a time when most people would be planning their retirements, Judy, Lynn, and Bill decided it was time to resurrect their old dreams. ACT THREE has embarked on a musical journey, and there’s no stopping them now. The three singers are featured in the award-winning documentary film “Once Upon A Dream,” which chronicles their journey to Carnegie Hall.
