Upcoming show

This Wednesday, October 25, the cast is doing a preview of scenes -- from A Tale of Two Cities.  This staged reading is being held at the The Bungalow Club in Hollywood (along with a scene from our upcoming production of Hamlet).

Tickets are limited to only 50 guests.  With a $45 non-profit donation, you are paying for your meal, plus supporting the The Charlens Company, the non-profit parent organization of The Hollywood Repertory Theatre.

Our producer, Chuck Harlander, intends this to be a lively evening -- full of fun and good spirits.

If you'd like to attend the show, just email me -- you can pay when you arrive.  First come, first served in reservations!

Friday, November 10 is approaching fast -- opening night of the Hollywood Repertory Theatre's production of A Tale of Two Cities.

We're about halfway through the blocking process, and we're right on schedule.  That makes me happy.

Within the next week, I'll have a link that you can click to reserve tickets for the show.

A bright young man that I tutor pointed me towards a link from Sports Illustrated -- the amazing story of Dick Hoyt.

Eighty-five times he's pushed his disabled son, Rick, 26.2 miles in Marathons. Eight times he's not only pushed him 26.2 miles in a wheelchair but also towed him 2.4 miles in a dinghy while swimming and pedaled him 112 miles in a seat on the handlebars--all in the same day.

Dick's also pulled him cross-country skiing, taken him on his back Mountain climbing and once hauled him across the U.S. On a bike.  Makes taking your son bowling look a little lame ...

By the way, at the extreme end of the article about Dick Hoyt, there's a link to a Youtube video.  Click on it. 

I was moved by this story.
