CHOREOGRAPHER
TJ Mundell
TJ has been a thorn in OhLook’s side for over 14 years now. Shows with us include “Little Shop of Horrors”, “Les Miserables”, “Jerry Springer the Opera”, Angel in “RENT”, and most recently Berger in ”HAIR” which required no acting whatsoever. This dirty hippie has almost 20 years of dance experience and has danced all over the world. Other productions include “Choices: Off Broadway”, “A Music Revolution”, “Fame on 42nd St.”, productions at Six Flags over Texas, and more... 
Unrelated, he’s also a licensed massage therapist and massage therapy instructor. Him and his husband own the Green Lotus Spa in Dallas and is regularly (voluntarily i promise) a sponsor for OhLook’s fundraisers as participants with no threats to our bodily harm from Jill....
Also, Bernie would have won.
