First Moment Performing For An Audience

Tubbs made his stage debut at 6 years old in his summer camp's production of "Going Buggy" playing a cool judge with a lot of style. "I only had one line and still remember it clearly, 'Bugs in my courtroom this cannot be this is a catastrophe.' When I think of this line and this moment it reminds me how long I've loved performing and why I do it."
