Martin A. Follose has served as the drama advisor at a small school in Southern Oregon for over 35 years. He is also the director and founder of JUST US, a high school theatrical troupe that entertains elementary students with music, acting and general craziness throughout Oregon, California and Hawaii. He also directs at community theaters in Oregon and is presently on the board of directors at Umpqua Actors Community Theater in Roseburg, Oregon.
Martin had never stepped onto the stage until after his third year of teaching when his principal forced him to be drama advisor for the following school year. That summer, Martin joined the cast of his college’s musical and has been hooked ever since. Soon after, he began writing plays and musicals for his students.
