The Fort Findlay Playhouse family is truly saddened at learning of the passing of Barb Hennigs. Barb was a professional dancer who appeared on Broadway and major television variety shows in the 60’s. She was a major contributor to FFP as a choreographer and directed several musicals for our theatre. She was one incredible character who did a lot for theatre and dance in our community. Red hair was her trademark. RIP !!!
