Branden Bise estimates he spends 35 hours a week working and performing at Shikles Auditorium with the Capital City Players.

"Even my wife has asked me why I spend this much time here," he laughed.

"The best explanation I can give is that I've been doing theater since I was 6-year-old. It's just in my blood."

Bise started as a dancer working with his family with his mom, Gail, making his costumes and his dad, Frank, playing in a band. He's now the vice president of the theater group as well as technical director.

"They put in me in front of an audience and are may inspiration," he said.
