Cool Odds and Ends:

Our boy Phillips Wagner made the cover of the Hill Country Journal this week! Why? He was elected Tivy Homecoming King!

Casey Hubble seems to be doing great up in Lubbock. He's got his own website now. Check it out here. And be sure to follow the link to CD Baby to get a listen to his stuff. Very, very nice . . .

OLH lost their homecoming game to NYOS 31-30, though they were threatening at the end of the game. Peter Navarra scored once and finished with 18 carries for 118 yards to lead the Hawks. I've also been neglecting to mention that Tyler Brown has been doing some stout running for ITM lately. Irec Hargrove doesn't get mention in the press for his work at ITM, but i can assure you he's anchoring the line, and anchoring it well. Wyndham Burney seems to having a great season for the Tivy freshmen too.

Speaking of front pages, also on the cover of this week's Hill Country Journal is Clifton Fifer.

Went to You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown rehearsals at ITM Monday. Marie Cearley is directing. Quite a few excellent auditions that day -- and zero duds. Cadi Hawkins' voice has really blossomed in the last year -- that girl can wail. Also, a kid i just met at Streetcar, but who looks to have real promise if we can sway him to stay in theatre (he's also ITM's current quarterback as a sophomore!) is Wade King. What a fine, fine voice. And he's a step beyond animated. Look out seniors. Although i have to say that the usual crew did exceptionally well at auditioning. This is clearly going to be one of those really fun shows, everyone is so hyped already.

Be sure to go backwards on my blog here and catch the news about The Producers.

And if, you somehow don't know, i'm directing Lend Me A Tenor at The Point Theatre right now -- this is the last weekend. I'd love nothing more than to see old friends, and have you all see the show. Besides being funny, the money, all of it, goes to a scholarship fund in the name of our friend Roy Burney, who passed away in August. He is missed by all his ITM students, and this show is our way to come to some closure, celebrate him and local theatre, and do some good for the future. So please come check it out. Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday 3:00 pm. Get hold of me if you need more info or want to reserve seats.

See, or will write to everyone soon! Love ya, tony g
