    Bill Farmer began with HLT back in 1989 in Pete Pollard’s Sweet Charity. A couple of years and several shows later, he took a few years off to raise his new family, having met his future wife while performing together with her in Oklahoma in 1990. He then returned to the stage in the late 90s, performing in Lost in Yonkers. Since then he has performed in many shows and had a great time. He is happy to call the HLT family his second family, and is thrilled to be cast in Arsenic and Old Lace.
