About this site...
This site is unofficial which means that although Stephen Buntrock is aware of the site and has even mentioned it in an online interview, he is not actively involved in its design or maintenance. There is no guarantee that he approves of any specific content
on this site, and any opinions expressed on the site are not meant to speak for him.
I do my best to keep the site current with the information and resources that I have, and am sorry if occasionally I miss something.
The primary aim of the site has always been
to provide a central location for information regarding Stephen Buntrock's
onstage career; a secondary purpose is to provide a way for fans, friends
and family to articulate their support for his career. (i.e. by signing
pages were born in 2000 out of my sincere respect for Mr. Buntrock's work and
it has always been my desire that they reflect well on him.
Since I think he deserves an awesome website, I try to keep the site as up-to-date and spiffy looking as my time and ability allow.
I'm a Software Developer by profession, so I'm pretty adept at the technical issues related to creating and running websites.
I like to continue to challenge myself to improve
upon my work- both technically and artistically, and I hope that keeps
this site fresh. I know this may never be the best site ever created-
but I want it to be the best site I
can do; I guess I am a little
bit of a perfectionist. So please contact
if you have any constructive criticism regarding this site or if something doesn't appear to be working properly.
I welcome any contributions of production photographs (especially
, Beauty and the Beast
or any shows Stephen had
done prior to 1997). It would also be greatly appreciated if you could
take a moment to share your thoughts, and sign the guestbook
do not take any scripts, text or graphics from this site without permission.

This website was founded on Jan 30, 2000. It is best viewed in a current browser
at 1024x768 resolution or greater. It looks best in Firefox or Chrome; it should look OK in recent versions of Internet Explorer but you may miss out on some of the finer design features.
The webmaster would like to thank her family and friends for their support and opinions
related to this project. Special thanks go to Barbara
for sending the photo of Stephen from the May 2002 article on understudies. Many thanks also
to everyone who has taken the time to sign the guestbook!
I've been fortunate enough to have seen a great many talented musical theatre
performers, both in the U.S. as well as around the world; it really
says something about Mr. Buntrock's work on stage that I wanted to do
this site in the first place... especially since I knew little about him
other than that he'd told someone else that he did not want a site and
that he'd given me a bit of a hard time when I'd asked for an autograph in
May 1999. ;) So I must finally extend a very special thank you to Stephen R. Buntrock-
both for always giving 100% onstage, as well as for respecting my work on the site.
Finally, on a personal note, here's a huge shout out of gratitude to both Stephen and Erin for their kindness throughout the years.
