'Kevin' E. Smather's is the Senior Naval Science (Navy Junior ROTC) Teacher at Farragut High School and a retired Navy Commander. After a 5-year absence, he is happy to return to the Tennessee Valley Players' stage. Most recently he was seen at Oak Ridge Playhouse as Peter Austin in It's Only a Play. His debut at the Playhouse was as Frederik Egerman in A Little Night Music. He has also appeared in TVP productions including: Curtains (Frank Cioffi), Guys and Dolls (Sky Masterson), Anything Goes 2008, (Moonface Martin) and Girl Crazy (Gieber Goldfarb). Also, The Fantasticks (El Gallo) with Pellissippi State Technical Community College; and Fiddler on the Roof (Lazar Wolf) with Foothills Community Players. The acting 'bug' bit many years ago at Appalachian State University when he was cast in Bus Stop (Bo Decker). Many thanks to the many directors who understand that he is always the last to be 'off book'.
