It's directed by the talented Jennifer Blackmer from a script by local playwright Kirsten Fentz based on O. Henry's classic tale. I'm fortunate to be in a wonderful cast full of amazing actors.

Thursday was a good day. I took the day off from Touchy Feely Fotos to hang out in Farmland with some wonderful people (You know, Sean Orlosky, Wendy Carpenter, Sean Heline, Bob Green, Missy Donahue, and Judy and Jerry Cole). We also performed a special episode of Tom Cherry’s Old Time Radio Show for a bus tour experiencing the wonders of Farmland. They were a fine audience, too! It was a fun show and we earned some good money for the Farmland Community Center. Later that same day, I auditioned for Indiana Public Radio’s Christmas production of The Gift of the Magi and yesterday I found out I’ll be part of the cast so Friday was a good day, too.
