Producer, Playwright and Songwriter: Susanne Sims

Susanne Sims is the former manager of the Twice Blessed Thrift Store at Unity Church of Hawaii. Inspired by the humorous and unexpected events that can happen only in a thrift store setting, Susanne was compelled to write this musical. Her first stage play “Conversations with Todd,” is a spoof on Neale Donald Walsch’s best selling trilogy “Conversations with God.” Susanne’s passion is singing, songwriting and stand-up comedy. Her performances can be seen on You Tube.
