JOY SLAVENS

Joy Slavens grew up in Trappe, Maryland, graduated from Penn View Bible Institute, and has lived in Sussex County, DE with her husband since 1988. They have two boys, Chris and Scott.

Joy began studying piano at age seven, and has been giving lessons for more than twenty-five years. After seeing a harpist at her own church, she became fascinated with this unique instrument, and began studying under Rebecca Smith of Crofton, MD for eight years. Joy teaches over 35 students which include piano and harp.

Presently Joy is on staff at St. John’s U.M. Church in Seaford, DE as church accompanist and assistant music director.

Joy loves to create new arrangements of many styles of music, and writes original compositions and publishes her music which is sold throughout the U.S. and has been favorably reviewed by harp publications.

Joy also has a harp ensemble, Expressions of Joy, which performs several times a year. They perform for churches, libraries, retirement communities, with a variety of styles of music.

“Music is my passion”, Joy says, “and I am forever grateful to have been blessed with the gift of music. I find it to be rewarding that many others get to share in this gift through my music, or by learning for themselves.” Serving God is also my passion, doing whatever He asks, whenever He wants, while being His vessel to be used by Him bringing others closer to Him.

Scott F. Mason celebrates over ten years of impersonating Dame Edna and has performed throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Broadway, Florida, Las Vegas, DC, and Sedona, AZ.

In February 2010 he auditioned for the real Dame Edna, Barry Humphries, for the title of “Honorary Understudy to Dame Edna” on Broadway, NY, while Humphries and singer Michael Feinstein were prepping their new show “All About Me.” Mason won the title over a dozen other contenders and appeared in the show’s Playbill. Greenwich Village Voice theater critic, Michael Musto praised his performance and invited him as a special guest at his birthday party that year.

In 2010 and 2012 he won “Best Comedian” at the Las Vegas Reel Awards which is akin to the Oscars for the Tribute Artist Industry.

He was one of three finalists for the “Agent’s Best” (meaning the best act out of dozens that agents reviewed) award in 2010 and 2012. In 2011 he was awarded the Silver Best Showcase Award 3rd place and in 2012 he won Gold (2nd).

His Dame has been seen on the Rachel Ray show as well as Fox News 35 in Orlando and the national CBS Sunday Morning news. He is also featured prominently in the award winning 2010 documentary short subject “Just About Famous” and its full-length follow-up in 2013. Information on the film and Mason can be seen on IMDB.com.

As Dame Edna, Mason has emceed galas and variety shows, made guest appearances at weddings, bridal showers, and birthdays, as well as doing corporate shows. He is most popular for his full length two hour shows (complete with intermission) performed at regional, community, and dinner theaters.

Mason has been active in theater since 1985, and was a member of the National Dramatists Guild, having written over 25 plays produced in Delaware and Off-Off Broadway. As an actor, he has acted over 100 roles, and appeared for 30 years with the Delaware Dance Company’s “The Nutcracker” . He has also directed over 100 plays for community and regional theater.
