    Dena Martinez (Lydia, American Night), age 13, as Moth in A Midsummer Night's Dream at Berkeley Shakespeare Festival, 1979. “Liza Chugg made my costume. My father took this photo. This is the only professional show he saw me in as he passed away when I was 18. We swung from trees, lived in the hills and paths and really believed we were fairies. I had my first kiss on the swings at the park. I remember stage manager Meryl Shaw telling us teens 'to stop having so much fun, this is serious biz.'"
