PerformingView – March 2016

A Time to Perform in March 2016
By Kaye Osborn

There is nothing more rewarding than directing and producing a musical with young performers. The actors in the Lakewood production of Sleepy Hollow have rehearsed with enthusiasm, energy and vibrancy. I am so very proud of this year’s show. We would love to see you in the audience.

I also had the opportunity to meet with Leslie Larson of Central West Ballet. If you haven’t seen CWB dancers, catch them this month when they perform Rat Pack in Revue. Do read my interview with an amazing Celtic group Golden Bough and catch them at Beth Shalom also in this issue.

Here’s what happening in our neck of the woods!
