Taking the lead
Woodbury resident Aleks Knezevich was on his way to medical school in Iowa this summer when he got what he considered the opportunity of a lifetime -- a chance to perform at the Guthrie Theater.
Knezevich was offered the role as a swing character -- essentially an understudy for the chorus -- in the Guthrie's current production of "H.M.S. Pinafore." Knezevich decided to follow his heart and defer medical school so he could appear in the show.
