AREA ACTRESS HAS VISIT FROM FAN CLUB

Glendale resident Fiama Fricano Traxler, who is appearing in the San Francisco production of “Wicked,” was visited by her fan club, a school drama group led by Kay Yamada Roberts, a 1986 graduate of Hoover High School.

Traxler joined the cast in early 2009 and performs the role of the midwife, as well as understudying the show’s star, Patty Duke, who appears as Madame Morrible.

Traxler auditioned and rehearsed for the show in Hollywood, while the show was playing at the Pantages.

Traxler met Roberts through a mutual friend in the Glendale Philharmonic Committee. Roberts teaches drama at Clement Middle High in Redlands.

Roberts’ sister, Jennifer Owen, of Burbank and her daughters, Katie and Zody, also participated in the trip.
