Casting, Chatting and Reviews….

Casting for radio actors for Sherri’s Playhouse, I have three plays coming up and could use some heavy lifting.  No pay but a lot of exposure and you get to meet people from all over via our rehearsals.  We rehearse on Skype and perform on my Blogtalk platform. It is a lot of fun and we get to act in some truly amazing plays.  We do the radio plays live, it’s a high wire act like live TV back in the day, so if you want to do something completely different, get in touch with me.

Death at the Opera (Mrs. Bradley, #5)Death at the Opera by Gladys Mitchell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This books is so different, I had no idea who the murderer was, it was a complete turn around from the TV show starring Diana Rigg. I really enjoyed it. I don’t want to give anything away so I will just say its an excellent read and Gladys Mitchell deserved every accolade she had received.

Below is my review for a book I haven’t read since I was 15 years old, it is interesting and delightful to re-read it as an adult;

A BookA Book by Desi Arnaz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found this treasure in a box of books I was unpacking. I got it as soon as the paperback edition came out. I remember I loved it, but I haven’t read it in years. I take very good care of my books, the pages have yellowed but it is in very good condition.

I read it again, this is pure Desi. All his charm, you can hear his voice as you read it. It’s a wonderful book. Very honest, funny and sad. It truly touches the heart and it ended on a loving note. He always loved Lucy till the day he died. And he was a devoted Dad. He called his children, his treasures.

I have laughed out loud several times. He is so naturally funny and a great story teller. And when he writes about their fights on the phone when they were separated after making, “Too Many Girls,” I can hear their voices in my head after years of watching; I Love Lucy.

I was a teen when I first read it, but as a mature woman it adds another layer to it. Not only do I hear his voice in every written word, I truly understand it. It also made want me to re-watch “I Love Lucy,” I had not really watched it for years. So I have been enjoying re-watching episodes with the inside knowledge about what happened on the set, from Desi’s memory. It just makes me love it more.

I love Lucy but I also love Desi.

Cat’s Pajamas, Hamlet and The Chatty!!!

Well, I am going to try to bring my dreams of having one of my plays on stage come to life! I started a campaign yesterday on Kickstarter to get the financing to make it happen. So you can be a part of theater and put Cat’s Pajamas on the stage! http://kck.st/2meg7vY  I have some great rewards listed and even if you don’t live here in California, you can be a part of the theater, kind of cool, huh? 
I would like to thank everyone who listened to  Hamlet on the New Years Eve, we have had amazing numbers.  I think I can speak for the whole cast,  we were all stunned! To be honest I wasn’t sure about doing it as a recording, I like the live theater aspect of it but since it was a holiday it was nice to just press a button and let it go.  I would like to thank Everett  Robert who edited it all Christmas week, Nick Davidge for all the sound effects that he created for the broadcast, And C. B. Floyd for his help in editing the play.  And Anne Louise Fortune for adapting and directing the play for the radio theater.  For those who missed it please listen to here for our archive of it;  http://tobtr.com/10488099  
And to listen to the cast chat about the whole experience here is the link; http://tobtr.com/10488099 
If you would like to join all the fun of our next production please drop us a line; https://www.facebook.com/Sherris-Playhouse-1415103118746094/   

I am also working on a play for this season’s Sherri’s Playhouse and several books it is going to be a busy writing period for me.

I would like to send my special love and thanks to our winners of  this year.  They are Anthony and Julie Sharpe for most live listens!

Authors who would like to take part in my book fair this year please send me a message to let me know. I will need pictures of your books and sell links as well a very short description of each book. No more than three books per author please. Thanks, the Management. https://www.facebook.com/Book-Fair-920456447981808/

I have taken up with an idea about mentoring a few writers.  Just to get my toes wet. My mentoring is for a targeted period on a retainer for 10-15 hours specific targeted help. Non refundable.
If you like the support you can re-sign up. And as part of that deal you get a free interview on Chatting withSherri for your new book with all theadvertising that goes with that. Afterwards we can discuss how you did and how you can use the knowledge toward your own platform. Send me a note if your interested at; https://www.facebook.com/RithebardWebsite/
 We are doing Hamlet, it is a very short version so don’t worry but it is an amazing thing to produce Shakespeare. One thing I really find interesting is how many phrases and words come from this play.  If you think Hamlet is not your cup of tea listen to the words, you will be amazed how many times you hear his words in our modern language and people just don’t realize it. If you would like to take part in our next production please drop us a line;https://www.facebook.com/Sherris-Playhouse-1415103118746094/
