Pam Munson Steadman

Librettist Playwright Lyricist

Pam has travelled extensively with her family, and has lived outside of London, England; and in Singapore; as well as in eight states. Having taught elementary school for a few years before starting her family, Pam soon caught the acting bug and graduated into an arts career as a performing artist for children...aka "Lady Amuck."   For fifteen years, she performed zany antics and told countless interactive tales to children and adults in NJ, Singapore, NC, GA, and VA. She's also conducted workshops for adults..."Becoming YOUR Story.

While living in downtown Savannah, Pam wrote and had published a trilogy of "Hannah Savannah" Books for Children", concerning a ten-year old with a mind of her own.   She's also written humorous prose, "The Lives of the Wits and Famous!" Through the Windmore Foundation for the Arts (VA), Pam founded the "Pen-to-Paper Writers."   She was a board member of 'Black Box' of Asbury Park (arts incubator), Windmore Foundation for the Arts, as well as a board member with "The Little Theatre" of New Milford, CT.

Pam collaborated with a member of 'The Blue Man Group,'  David Anania, penning her  lyrics with David's music and arrangement: "Bobbing for Apples in a Tub of Moonshine."  Travis R. Steadman created the title of the song. "In Asbury Park"  is Pam's latest song...encouraged by her creative partner, Susan McCarthy.  It is now awaiting a musician or band to put a melody to it.  If interested, please contact Pam.
