News and a Message From Cindy
Hello Everyone! Hope you're looking
forward to gourging on some turkey
this week. There are many exciting events happening, so
I will be as
brief as possible with my update:
**Thank you to everyone who attended
VOICES FROM CHORNOBYL at the
Empty Stage Theatre.**The UK
Conference of Chernobyl Charities asked me to speak at their
conference in March and explain how my adaptation of VOICES
CHORNOBYL can raise money for the children they help. We
present a Demo film of the play at this conference, along
providing the materials needed for future fundraisers.
Voices From Chornobyl has been invited
to perform in Washington D.C. &
New York this April to raise funds and awareness for the
Children's Project International.
The ultimate goal is to present the
play around the world on the 25th
anniversary of the accident, April 26, 2009, and for all
benefit Chernobyl charities. Information on how you can
forthcoming, and will also be available on our website at
www.voicesfromchornobyl.com by mid-week. Reply with your
address if you'd like a hard copy of the materials.
**needtheater hosted a reading of
TEN, a play I wrote that we will be
workshopping in early 2008. With all the great feedback,
feverishly working on a second draft! www.needtheater.com
**Feb. 8th is the opening night for

Felde, which I am directing as part of Towne Street Theatre's

I currently teach playwriting and
acting for FREE in schools, through
a non profit called Safe Moves. The program takes middle
school students through the process of creating and performing
own production about DUI and peer pressure to drink alcohol.
