I will be appearing as Harry in the New Castle Playhouse's production of Company in April. This will be my first foray into Sondheim. Click Here to go to the NCP website for more information.
My one act play, The Many Wives of Bluebeard, is appearing on stage in February at the Avenue Theatre in Rochester as part of RACT's Fractured Fairy Tales. This is the sequel to The Princess and the Great Gold Dragon and features all of the same zany characters still trying desperately to make good theatre.

I have joined a team to participate in the 48 Hour Film Project in Pittsburgh. This will be my first time working with film and should be quite challenging and interesting. The project will be over the weekend of July 11th. I'm looking forward to little sleep and lots of creative collaborating.
If any of my theatre friends are interested in joining our team, send me a message. The more, the merrier.
My play, Sherlock Holmes and the Sign of Four, has gone through a table reading and a couple of revisions and is now in the rehearsal stage. I have cast the show with some promising and wonderful people and I can't wait to see it come together.
This will be the first time I will be working with a script I can re-write at will.
Show opens in May, so we better get to it.

We've set a time for the production. My first literary adaptation will go on stage at the Comtra on May 2, 2013 and run for three weekends.
This is very exciting. I have the entire script complete and I'm working on polishing.
I'll need lots of guys, several women and a couple kids, so if you're interested in auditioning, come on out. Auditions are in March. I'll post more later.
Well, after about 30 years, I finally get my wish and will be playing Oliver (Daddy) Warbucks at the Comtra Theatre. I did the show in high school many years ago and only got to play FDR that time. Not necessarily the part I've most wanted to play, but it is on my bucket list.
I've already styled my hair.
My biggest problem is that I have way too many other things to do in the mean time. Oh well, one must suffer for their art... hehe...
The show is in December leading up to Christmas because nothing says Christmas like orphans singing.
Well, I'm way remiss in posting this, but I am appearing in Comtra Theatre's current production of Spamalot as Sir Robin, and others.
The show is running for two more weekends until November 9th. If you're interested in seeing it, you can get more information and make reservations at Comtraplayers.com.

Thank you everyone who came to audition. As always, I wish I had a role for everyone and I encourage everyone to keep coming. My next directing adventure will be in the spring and I will be doing a Sherlock Holmes story with a large cast.
If you are interested in Tech or Stage Crew for Deathtrap, I am still recruiting.
