Paul R. Nichols is performing as one of the Sailors on Shane’s Crew in Mara The Musical.

When asked where did you grow up?, he replied “I haven’t yet, but I went to school in Palo Alto.

Paul has been performing for fifty years “after one show in high school, I rediscovered theater. Mara is my twentieth show in 6 years, with lead roles in Scrooge, Aida, Bright Star, My Fair Lady, Newsies, Tarzan, and others.

Paul likes to write reviews of shows that he’s not in. “It’s nice to sit back with a small role and watch this miracle unfold from the inside out.”

Paul teaches piano – specializing in the Suzuki Piano approach. He has also been a Historian of the American Custom Gunmakers Association for 25 years – “I make custom rifle stocks and I love involvement with theater.”

Paul is a father to seven children and would like to be part of a movie sometime. “I love being around creative people – happy to be part of this amazing adventure to see MARA become a reality!”
