Carole starred in TV’s most successful regional children’s series, THE MAGIC GARDEN (for over 12 years) with her Co-Star, Paula Janis, leading to 3 albums (one Grammy Nominee), hundreds of live family concerts and recent viral posts on Facebook.
From its debut, The Magic Garden, which Demas filmed on her day off from Grease, was a hit. “Kids understood that we were really friends,” Janis said. “It wasn’t just some made-up show with two people who hardly knew each other.” In fact, the show only had a one-page script — the hosts’ banter was mostly spontaneous.
CAROLE DEMAS, who created the role of Sandy, in the original Broadway Production of GREASE, as well as the Title Role in THE BAKER’S WIFE, and created leading roles in numerous other shows, various Soap Operas and primetime TV dramas. She continues (in NYC) to be an extraordinary singer, an engaging speaker with over 60 years in professional theatre. more at www.caroledemas.com
