PIPPIN, UCLA's Summer Camp and Best in Drag Show!

So much has been going on. My apologies for not updating sooner.

PIPPIN in the midwest was an extraordinary experience. The cast and crew were amazing. Thanks goes out to John at the Oster Regent Theater for inviting me back home and to everyone who made it possible.
UCLA's Summer Camp was specatular as usual. The students kept me on my toes and I think we all learned a great deal.

Best in Drag Show- the annual fundraiser for Aid For AIDS (aidforaids.net) brought in over $360,000! Pictures to follow.

My time at AMDA was met with a bevy of talent and nice human beings to boot! Love the students there. Thanks Barry and Jane.

November brings more challenging adventures. I am setting a piece on 15 dancers from the Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts which will be performed in February. I get to meet them very soon!

At the end of Janurary, I will hold auditions for GYPSY at Cypress College. ALL ARE WELCOME! Come on, ROSE! The show opens in April '08. I love this show. I got to play in 5 productions over the years with such stars as Betty Buckley, Karen Morrow, and Terri Ralston. I am looking forward to directing and choreographing this production.

Have a wonderful holiday season!!!

Best in Drag Show!, NAACP Theater Award and AMDA

Happy New Year!  Well, Best in Drag Show 4 was a great success, bringing in over $250,000 for Aid For AIDS. Thank you to everyone involved. Go to aidforaids.net for more info and to get a heads up for this years show in October.

I was just nominated for choreography by the NAACP Theater Awards for The Bubbly Black Girl... Congrats to Lindsey Gearhart, also nominated for Directing and Fredericka Meek, for supporting actress!

I am teaching a few Master Classes at AMDA in February before I head back to Cedar Falls, Iowa, my hometown. I will be teaching class, having production meetings, doing radio spots and newspaper interviews, and holding auditions for the Oster Regent Theaters production of Pippin, opening June 1st. I am so excited about directing and choreographing this production.

Hopefully, March and April will bring Movement to Music back to Hollywood. Stay tuned.

 

Best in Drag Show!, Musical Theatre Camp and College Audition Workshop.

Welcome to the brand new TomPardoe.com!

Currently I am producing and directing Best in Drag Show, our annual fundraiser for Aid For AIDS - a great organization. The show is October 22. We have seven contestants, twelve dancing drag queens known as the Doberman Pincher and over 50 people who volunteer their time and energy to make it a great show.

Also, I am scheduled for Musical Theatre Camp and College Audition Workshop for UCLA next summer.

I recently choreographed Melinda Clarke (Julie Cooper) and Artem ("So You Think You Can Dance" Season One) on an episode from The O.C.

And finally, I am choreographing two splashy numbers for the Hot n Dry convention in Palm Springs in September; I'll be doing two master classes in Theatre Dance for AMDA in Los Angeles; and I'll be directing and choreographing Pippin in the Midwest in May 2007.

My Moving to Music class, which happens in Hollywood, will resume shortly. Have a great summer, wherever you are.
