Where it all Began
The Regis Ramblers musical theater club was started in the fall of 1995, by Regis computer science professor Dr. Dennis Steele and his daughter, Shannan. Shannan at that time was a student at Regis, and together they began what has become an important piece of the Regis experience for hundreds of students and alumni. In the spring of 1996, the Ramblers performed their first musical to a sold out audience..."Li'l Abner". The following years would bring new challenges, teamwork, and a collection of Ramblers alumni who have continued to support and be entertained by the thriving club to which they once belonged.
Since its beginning, Dr. Steele has been, and remains, the backbone of the club, continuing in the role of faculty sponsor. He has contributed as a music director, band member, set builder, and overall source of support for each and every production. Shannan Steele has choreographed all but two of the annual productions and has served as director/choreographer/vocal music director for the majority of the shows Ramblers has produced. Shannan is a professional actress in the Denver area, starring in award winning productions at the Arvada Center and at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
