Student News


News for 2010: It's been a great summer of "Summer Stock."

COURTNEY BASSETT has been performing in 'SWONDERFUL a Gershwin Review, directed by Ray Roderick and choreographed by my fellow BEAUTY AND THE BEAST original cast member Vince Pesce at Pittsburgh CLO. And . . . COURTNEY got her Equity Card!

ROD BROGAN not only did a show at Bard Summerscape, but managed to find time to get married and run off on his honeymoon.

COREY MASKLEE had a busy summer playing multiple roles in MAME, WILL ROGER'S FOLLIES, and PETER PAN at Mt. Gretna Theater. He's also just starting his first year at Penn State and has already been called back for THE DROWSY CHAPERONE.

AMY BLACKMAN got the wonderful opportunity to perform at the storied St. Louis MUNY (It was around when I was in college . . . also at U. of Michigan like AMY) in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, TITANIC and THE SOUND OF MUSIC. And . . . just got cast in one of her dream roles, The Baker's Wife in INTO THE WOODS at the University of Michigan.

 

AND COMING UP . . .


JON FICO will be appearing in this year's NYMF in THE MOST RIDICULOUS STORY EVER TOLD. For any of you who missed the beautiful film OPUS JAZZ when it appeared on PBS, (starring GEORGINA PAZCOQUIN, the magnificent ballerina/Anita in WEST SIDE STORY SUITE at New York City Ballet) Friends of the High Line is presenting a free public screening of the film on Friday September 10 at 7p.m. You can link in to see and hear a great TV interview and performance with the fabulous CONNIE EDINGER on Channel 69/WFMZ.

ANNA LEWGOOD will be scaring all the children as the SAS Bodyguard or Head of Security for Prince John in "Hood" this October. For those of you who know Anna, you know how terrifying she can be.

TINA XENOS (who is one of my "miracle students") is a finalist in a showcase coming up this fall for a comic monologue she wrote. It may not be a singing gig, but TINA is one funny broad.

 


I look forward to adding more news as you send it to me . . .
