Mr Eiler began his career in the National Company of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," then played Omar Khayyam in the National Company of "Kismet." He has appeared in many major stock productions, playing comedy leads in "The Merry Widow," "Peter Pan," "Oklahoma" and as Og, the leprechaun, in "Finian's Rainbow." At the Fort Bragg Playhouse he staged the musical routines and performed in a "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum," starring Imogene Coca and the late King Donovan. In 1985 he played Lord Brockhurst in "The Boy Friend," at the Royal Palm Dinner Theatre in Boca Raton, Florida. Then in 1987 he played the Viceroy (Cyril Richard's role at the Met) in Offenbach's "La Perichole" in the Berkshire Opera Company production. He is the Founder of the award winning Prince Street Players, for which he wrote, produced, and directed a series of eleven children's musicals, four of which were CBS-TV Specials for which the players won a Special Emmy Award. Mr. Eiler has also written and staged a new adaptation of John Gay's "The Beggar's Opera," which was produced by the Michigan Opera Theatre in Detroit, as well as a children's musical biography, "Let's Play Bach."

Ms. Bargy's career spanned several decades. Jeanne left us several years ago, but she is fondly remembered as a performer, composer, coach and accompanist with her own TV Show Blues By Bargy which ran for two years on CBS, as a composer of the off-broadway musical hit Greenwich Village U.S.A ., as an arranger and coach for a multitude of actors and singers, and as Co-composer and Musical Director for the Prince Street Players, Ltd.
