Bill Schelble

Press, Assistant
( b. Apr 11, 1930 Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - d. Jan 09, 2012 Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA ) Male
Also known as: William Schelble
In a varied and rich career, Mr. Schelble acted in stock, studied at the Pasadena Playhouse, danced in the chorus of "Singin' in the Rain," was personal assistant to writer-director Burt Shevelove, and press-repped dozens of shows in New York and on the road.

In 1955 he moved to New York. After working odd jobs, a friend invited him to speak to a theatre man who was looking for an assistant. The man turned out to be the well-connected writer and director Burt Shevelove, who hired him to be an assistant. Schelble assisted Shevelove for nine years, on shows including TV productions with Dinah Shore, Phil Silvers and Judy Garland, and Broadway's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Hallelujah, Baby!. A job in the subscription office at Lincoln Center Theater led to a position as a press agent in 1970. He repped such LCT plays as Playboy of the Western World with David Birney, A.R. Gurney's early effort, Scenes From an American Life.

Working in several press offices, including that of leading press agent Merle Debuskey, Mr. Schelble also repped such New York and out-of town shows as Good Evening; An Almost Perfect Person; the Australian Ballet staging of The Merry Widow with Margot Fonteyn.
