JOANNE HAMMERLY

 JoAnne is making her debut on the Historic Academy Stage tonight but is not without stage experience.  JoAnne, the youngest of 3 Puerto Rican sisters in New York City, started singing, traveling and recording her first album at the age of 13. Married to Jim (MD) for 33 years has given her the opportunity to sing and direct on stages across the United States.  Her greatest achievement is being the mother or AimeeRose, (NINA), Joseph Lawrence and James Fenton II;  three incredibly talented musicians in their own right. JoAnne’s favorite part of being a part of this cast is the diversity in the cast.  Everyone is beautiful in their own unique way!!!!!
