Amy was an accomplished actress when we met in the 1970s and worked for a while as the resident heroine on The Goldenrod Showboat on the Mississippi River in front of the St. Louis Gateway Arch.
In fact, it was her experience as a heroine that led the Alton Little Theater company to bring her in as the resident professional for a summer melodrama production in 1977. They asked me to play the villain and the rest is history.
Also a part of history is the Goldenrod, which has fallen on hard times in recent years.
The video above is a short history of The Goldenrod that I found on YouTube.
