Lavern Norris Gaynor’s foray into live theater was inauspicious, but the venture led to a much more meaningful path. With a 9-year-old’s vision of taking center stage by playing different roles, the young Lavern, her sister and a friend penned and produced a play that they believed would draw crowds. Unfortunately, Lavern’s imagination was brighter than the production’s promise because, as she describes it, the play was a “total failure.”
The audience wanted their money back, but Lavern somehow managed to make 20 cents from the piece. She was proud because it was the first money she earned on her own, and she had thoughts of sharing it and buying penny candy.
