Alexander Craig-my fifth grade teacher at Philip Sheridan bought me a drink after my show at the Ismailia Shrine Center. I remember that he was a fantastic teacher-and I'm so glad we have stayed in touch over the years. I will never forget the day JFK was shot-Mr. Craig getting the call in the classroom and then having to share the news with the class.
It was a special treat to do the show at Niagara University Theatre-great venue-top notch staff and my friend John Smeathers (a real actor from the U.K. who plays Scrooge in the annual Alleyway production) came to see the show! I think he liked it! John's been doing the Alley Production for 15 years-this year he retired-so they will be looking for a NEW Scrooge for next year! John will be a tough act to follow!
