Phil Walnock works hard during the week as a Manager of Strategic Projects for a utilities company in Cherryville, Pennsylvania. But, when he is not at his desk, he likes to be out with his family taking in the local theater productions. He and his wife greatly enjoy their nights out on the town, and even bring their two sons along for the excitement from time to time.
Most recently Phil Walnock could be found taking in the production of 'A Christmas Story' at his local theater. This musical rendition of the famous holiday movie favorite was an entertaining spin on the story of Ralphie we all know so well. Phil Walnock stated, “It was really enjoyable and we all had a great time together. The actors were great, the songs were fun, and we definitely plan to see it again if it comes back next year for another tour.”
Phil Walnock has not be active in theater himself, preferring to act as a youth coach for football, baseball, and basketball, but he has a great appreciation for the art of Broadway and really enjoys treating his wife to dinner and a show. He himself has a BA in sociology from Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania, as well as an MS in management from Stevens Institute of Technology.
So, even though Phil Walnock has ended up on the corporate side of things with his most recent education and job position, he still has that sociology background that leads him to be interested in human social behavior. Phil Walnock believes that this background is what makes him so interested in the characters portrayed in plays and Broadway shows.
Phil Walnock and his wife do not always bring their sons along, sometimes preferring to spend time alone, but they really hope to instill the same love of theater and the arts in their children. He believes that a well-rounded education, as well as an appreciation of many different forms of expression, are some of the great secrets of success and happiness.
Phil Walnock anticipates seeing more shows in the coming year and hopes that they all prove as enjoyable as 'A Christmas Story' was.
