									                                Our staged reading of panic last Sunday was received very favorably.
                                    We played to a full house of family, friends and industry folks.
                          Thank you to all who made time in their busy schedules to come out and support us!

                                         John and I are now off to the Poconos to our timeshare.

From Ellyn Stein
Great article on Actors getting hurt while rehearsing/performing - [ed. - a must read]
[ed. - mine and John's lives have been irrevocably damaged by actions that could have and should have been prevented by theater
management and/or other actor's negligent actions. Please, PLEASE read this and demand that all combat/confrontation scenes,
however insignificant you think they may be - BE CHOREOGRAPHED to your satisfaction. No role is worth what we've been, and are
still, going through. For me it's been six years and I have just started additional treatment for pain management. John's injury was
nearly two years ago and he is also in treatment. It doesn't stop when the show ends and is put out of the minds of those responsible.]

From Robin Sabella
Hi, I am a member of the Loyal Order of the Moose women's chapter in Lindenhurst. I want to create a theatre program there, I have a
degree in Speech and Drama and I know the mechanics of putting on a production. What I would need is directors, choreographers,
musical directors, and technical experts. I plan on starting this program next year but I would like to know if there are anyone out there
who would be willing the donate their time and expertise in this project? By answering this e-mail in no way commits you to my project,
I'm just trying to find out if there is an interest. The Loyal Order of the Moose is an organization that helps children and seniors in need.
We have various fund raising events to raise funds.I thought that by having a theatre program would be an excellent way of fund raising
but I didn't want to get in over my head. You can send me an e-mail at Thank you all in advance for any
advice you can give me.

I have just completed sequencing a 1980's retro musical called Back To The 80's

seen through the eyes of Corey Palmer, who is now 30-something.

Instructor - Karmine Alers (Mimi Marquez in B'way's Rent)

performers, Casting Directors, or other working professionals. Each student will be given time to perform 2, 16-bar cuts of a Pop-Rock
song as they would in an actual audition for a Pop-Rock musical. In this mock audition, students will be given feedback and advice that
