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!!!
