It Begins 

  The cast made it down after a long haul 4hrs drive in a van and Nic in a car but they made it. I really wanted to get them settled in but because of time we had to get ready for the show. Everyone flipped around flopped around but changed into characters as fast as they got here and it was showtime.

  
The crowd was thin but this was with the right people to get more out. With journalist, photographs,vlogers and blogers on hand all this meant was Friday was going to be the turn up show. In the end all that came enjoyed and event shed tears. Last words said I can’t wait to see this again. Let’s get ready people more to come..

  

Your In…

If there is one thing that we all know from experience,fitting in isn’t always that easy. In theater being able to fit in means more as it deals with having the ability to show fellow cast mates that you have what it takes to nail a line a character and all that within the first time they see you in rehearsal.

Like a bike the expectations are always to be able to get on and begin to peddle away but we all had to remember the best part is in the refreshing of the lines and positions we put in play from last time around. It was fun reintroducing everyone as well as introducing new members to the ensemble and there are still more members to come. Seeing everyone was a refreshing moment for me as it brought me closer to the understanding as to what my goal is in the accomplishment of the play this time around and that is to truly establish a facility in Philadelphia where this journey can take on its on course for the cast that many actors in philly don’t get a chance to say and that is in — at — ..

We live in a future that the average minority youth believes his life has a limitation. For many that means never seeing pass the ghetto, never imagining themselves as college graduates, never envisioning living, loving, breathing or just being. These thoughts are not limited to black or Latino children but many minority children within inner cities. The need for positive role models should not be limited to sports players or those in entertainment but even the Brother managing a bodega, the brother getting a masters in science to change the world, the brother working as a teacher in a system that wants to give up on children and the brother sitting in the park with his kids and lady teaching them how to ride a bike. Truth is these are the images that can change a life, these are images that resemble real life, these are the images many need to understand these men have a strive worth becoming why because it involves integrity, consciousness and wanting to build. These are images that speak choice and tell you what you can become and that you can climb out of the syndrome of lost souls…
