Hi,

I was looking for anyone that was active during the early 70's that might have been in Fiddler on the Roof. My father and step-mother were in that play along with a couple more. My father is back in town and I was just looking for him for some long lost friends.

My father's name is Harry McDaniel and my step mother's then was Patty Mayo.

Thank you,

Hey!!!!

Our daughter, Shannon Murphy, is still enjoying college theater. However, now she is enjoying it much more after her transfer to New York University. She is currently in her 3rd year there, and finding herself totally immersed both in the theater world and the big city. She is in the Strasberg studio and is looking forward to spending the summer in New York this year. This will be the summer of trying to make a few things connect before her last year at NYU. It's been a long time since her first show as a Munchkin with the Actorsingers!

Good day to the Nashua ActorSingers! http://www.actorsingers.org/ It is exciting to review your web site and see all the fantabulous things you have done since I enjoyed my first musical performance (beyond the chorus of HMS Pinafore in 1958!) in 1983 as Joe Cable. It was a very moving experience for me to work with so many dedicated and enthusiastic people to realize a truly entertaining show. Since moving to Ohio. I have been very happy with the Loveland Stage Company (just outside of Cincinnati Ohio) where I was first cast in a dream role, Arthur in Camelot (1997?) which was my second musical!

Five years later I was selected to become Capt. vonTrapp starring with my wife, Barbara Rugen, as Elsa. What wonderful experiences with so many fabulous people in cast and crew! I sent the video of our The Sound of Music to Barry Bonner (your My Fair Lady 1992) a very dear friend who is no longer with us. He was struggling so with chemotherapy at the time. My very vivid recollections of Moe Coutu as Billis and Patricia Stanhope as Nellie will stay with me always - along with the perfect portrayal of Bloody Mary and Nancy's lovely dancing as Liat. What a powerful group, what a happy audience.

I will be blessed to turn 60 this year and, in February, returned to my 1958 roots in the chorus of another Gilbert & Sullivan joy - I was a rowdy but noble Penzance pirate. GREAT FUN! Next month I will be on stage again with Barbara for Jerry's Girls in which we will do "I Won't Send Roses" and finally to the drag queen phase of my career in the La Cage number! When asked if I would be okay with that assignment my reply was my overall approach to entertaining, "If the audience is happy, I am happy."

Break a leg!

Yo!!

This is Jeff!! How are things in chilly, snowy NH (here we just have the chill...no snow).

So, this was definitely a good move. Love the job...good mix of challenge and creativity. I'm working on state books (K-5) for Social Studies for California. Big states like that demand their own books. What's nice about CA is that, unlike other states, where making a "new series" involves just looking over the old program (C) 2002 and throwing in some state-specific stuff here and there (there are a handful of people working on 11 different state books), California is PICKY PICKY PICKY. That means that we (just two of us) get to design a brand new program. Innovation is STRESSED--how cool is that?

In other news (you'll like this), I'm doing Barnum at a local community theatre. This one is a tad bit different than ours, however. We have hired a circus company in Chicago to TRAIN US! We've been tumbling and juggling like crazy. Barnum will be walking the tight rope and I will be juggling pins and such (not that I've juggled before, mind you) as well as throwing people up onto my shoulders to stand on top of me. I will also be on (drum roll please) the trapeze, dangling from my legs and spinning some poor girl around praying that I don't drop her...quite the visual, huh? Actually, I worked on the trapeze for the first time last night and it ain't that bad...sorta fun, actually. Fun enough that I told the people I work w/ that they'd better be good to me or I might consider another career change :0) In any event, they are pulling out all the stops (and the waivers) for this one; it should be pretty interesting.

Anyway, hope the family is well...say hello for me. Any news from Nashua??

Oh yah, by the way, my new address here in Chicago is 822 W. Roscoe Street, Chicago, IL 60657. If you could send that along to Schneider that would be great...I'll pay her my $10, I promise!!

Alrighty. Well, need to get back to work. Look forward to hearing from you...

Hello everyone. WOW, it has been a very long time since i have spoken to everyone.

i first joined Actorsingers (auditioned) for Guys and Dolls. It was my very first play and i remember how important it was to me. the rehearsing, and rehearsing, and REHEARSING......LOL

Of course 5 days before opening night... i fall off a ladder and break my leg. It was then i found a group of people who were and are the most supportive and caring group of inividuals i have ever met. Well i was able to still perform on opening night. It was the best feeling in the world to be on the stage.

so it was GUYS AND DOLLS, HELLO DOLLY, THE WIZ, AND GREASE. Although i was only in chorus, my fondest memories were at Actorsingers. Finding this website, has allowed me to look back at some of the fun times.

Hopefully it will allow some of us to stay in touch. I now reside in the San francisco Bay area. California is great and no i don't miss the snow. Also my career has taken me into the Bio-Medical field. Reasearch and all that scientific stuff..... Feel free to write if you remember me it would be great to hear from everyone...... who knows maybe a reunion someday.... (id fly home for that)

All my love and best wishes to a wonderful group.

Subject: Mark the Date!! TNC, 12 Plays and Moises Kaufman!

Just wanted to fill you in on a benefit coming up next week which will feature an excerpt from my new play,
"THE CUTICLE KILLERS"
performed by Sekiya Billman and Cindy Cheung
with Rick Hip-Flores on piano

THE CUTICLE KILLERS is an irreverent and satiric comedy set in New York City's present day China Town, and concerns two down on their luck back-up singers, Tina Tanaka and Renee Fawn Hong, who, after causing an international incident (while on tour with Belinda Carlisle in Taiwan), are left with no choice but to become hired undercover assassins for an Asian Tong (or mafia) in the Fancy-Pants Spa and Nail Salon on Mott Street. They provide special services for underworld undesirables, such as the "hot-prussic acid bikini wax" or the "switchblade manicure" until one day, Tina unwittingly falls in love with one of her victims and resolves to spare his life and change her ways. Four actors will bring to life the many characters who cross the paths of our heroines as they strive to overcome shady, back-alley violence, familial disharmony and Asian-American interracial intolerance while searching for the perfect emery board.

Thanks,
Carl Andress

Hi from Wendy Mahoney - some of you folks may remember me from days past...you'd usually find me behind the piano, although I spent some time in other roles as well. I joined Actorsingers way back in 1974 and worked on productions through the 1980s. In 1996 I relocated to Oakland CA where I still reside. Of course there's plenty of theater out here, including community, but I've been a spectator instead of a participant. I'm preparing to go back to college (again!) which will actually give me more free time for a while and I hope to get involved once again. If there's anyone out there who would like to say hi...please do!!

What a terrific website, and a delight to stumble across while circumventing cyberspace! Can it really be about a decade since I trod the acotrsingers boards? Guess so! And though i've stayed active in theater and a performer in general, the Actorsingers still holds a warm place in my heart. (As does last night's chilli).

Very happy memories are associated with seven season's worth of shows in Nashua, from Sky Masterson to Julian Marsh, and many roles in between! Have finished a seven year stint in the morning on Springfield, Ma radio, and am generally free lancing at the moment doing voice overs (If you see or hear Hinsdale Racetrack spot on TV or radio--it's me doing the amped up announcing!) and even on the concert stage, as i join forces with two other gentleman to form a gentle send-up of the Three Tenors...we are The Three Baritones! It's a joy to sing stuff from Broadway and opera, pop tunes too, and get paid for it! Doing occaisional stand-up as well, and have had the pleasure of "opening" for Jackie Mason, and the Late Steve Allen (he was alive at the time). Been active in some revues , and worked in WILL ROGERS FOLLIES and CHICAGO! Off to Boston for an audition tomorrow, but sending out good wishes to all Actorsingers who might remember me! You can email me at Shepcom947@aol.com.

Miss being a part of your productions, but proud to be part of the history!

Just thought I would let people know that our daughter, Shannon Murphy, is well and getting ready to battle another winter at school in SUNY Fredonia!! (a 40 minute drive PAST Buffalo, NY!!)

She is currently a Sophomore in Musical Theatre, and loving it. This coming weekend, some of us are traveling all the way out to the shores of lake Erie to watch her perform in a one-woman play about the last night of Marie Antoinette, alone in her cell, contemplating the guillotine that the morning would bring. It's been a long time since we watched her in her first show with Actorsingers, as a Munchkin in Wizard of Oz!

In December, we return to Fredonia to see her as the ANGEL in Angels in America, Parts One and Two. What fun for us to see her so totally immersed in the world she loves...

I know I will light a candle for her in my window and remember her and her mother's strenghth through all of everything. I have included a story that I wrote last year of what happened and how it effected me and I'd be sooo happy if you shared it with everyone. No one should forget her smile or her song.

"Weave, weave, weave me the sunshine out of the falling rain.

Hi Jed, et al.

I thought I'd drop a line to my "old" friends in the Nashua theatre circut.

This year, after a 7 year run at the University of NH, the sometimes thrilling, sometimes chilling, but always exciting show "My Degree" will finally come to a close. (And the winner is: Theatre, Technical Emphasis).

Over that span, I have gotten married and now have a bouncing baby boy, Patrick. You can go to www.dunhom.com and see all the pix of this heartbreaker!

I've done more shows in Portsmouth over the past few years than UNH, with my last one being a very successful (in all senses of the word) production of Sylvia at the Player's Ring theatre. As usual I produced, but it was my directorial debut (Directing class REALLY paid off). Yes, you too can blow money in theatre and reap the rewards. Actually, I had great returns and we all shared a piece of pie on that one. (It was blueberry, actually).

Anyhow, I am now employed full time at UNH. (Been here so long, they figured I was qualified to work here). I am a manager of a testing lab for network hardware. (It's called the UNH InterOperability Laboratory, for all you geeks who might know what it is...).

Once my son is a little older (7 months going on 17 years), and I am more secure in my marital bliss, I will return triumphantly to the theatre to act, sing, and dance, produce and direct once more. When and where, I am not sure. But I ALWAYS respond to calls for parts (hint, hint, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say NO more!).

I'd love to hear from anyone back there! I've seen the names in the recent cast lists, and I'm happy to see there are some that I still recognize! My home e-mail address is dunhom@mediaone.net

Hi all!!!

For those of you that don't know, I got offered a job in the San Francisco Bay area, and I accepted and moved out here already. It went really quick. I just got here, got my apartment, and started work.

I'm working as a Software Developer at Vertigo Software http://www.vertigosoftware.com and I'm going to be put on a project at http://www.opentable.com - check it out. It's neat - some restaurants are connected up and with this web site you can make REAL TIME reservations in Boston.

Anyway, the trip out here was interesting. I got a flat tire in the middle of the desert - out in nowhere-land, and I have one of those baby tire spares. My Dad drove out with me, so we changed the tire and drove 50 miles till we saw a sign of civilization. Luckily, we found some joe schmoe dealer who happened to have a tire he could sell us, and it went very well. Then we got here, and as I was driving over some train tracks, a piece of metal got stuck in one of my other tires and blew that one. My dad was still here, so he got it fixed while I went to work. <<phew>>

I have a little kitty cat, and she went along with us in the car. I wasn't supposed to bring her in the hotels, but what was I supposed to do?? So one time on the way we stopped at Las Vegas and got a hotel for 3 days on the first floor. Well, apparently, when we were out gambling, Kitty decided to sit in the window the whole time. A maintenence guy spotted her and almost had us kicked out of the room. Luckily, he didn't spot her till right when we were about to check out anyway.

So now, I have no furniture. The movers screwed up, and my furniture's coming a week late. It's not coming till Saturday. I had had a puny little twin bed, so I had planned on getting a queen bed anyway; so the first day I was here, I bought a queen bed. That's the ONLY piece of furniture in my house. So there's me, Kitty, and the bed. And the fireplace, which I haven't figured out how to work yet. <hee hee>

I babysat for the boss's kid last night. He was all apologetic and said he had never asked an employee to do that before, and please don't feel like I had to just cause he was my boss and all that. They paid me and gave me a plant. The kid was really cute, and was a terror, kind of, but really no big deal. At least I didn't have to change his diapers.

Well, I guess that's it for now. I don't have a computer at home, cause that's part of what the movers have. I'm supposed to be getting that on Saturday, and the guy is supposed to come on Tuesday to install a Cable Modem so I can get back up on the internet.

Well, I probably should go do some work. I'll talk to you all soon. Please feel free to write me here in work if you'd like.

My name is Kate Bliss, and I'm an alum of Actorsingers and Jr. Actorsingers. I'm currently a junior writing, literature, and publishing major and public relations minor at Emerson College in Boston. It's been such a long time since I have talked to any of you, I hope you are all doing well. I am so impressed with this website! What a great way to showcase Actorsingers! Keep up the good work! If any of you out there remember me ;-) feel free to drop me a line!

Hello! I finally got myself to visit the Official Actorsingers website. It's great! You really should try to dig up more photos from previous productions. It was fun looking at the ones from Guys and Dolls. We take all kinds of photos backstage but I hardly ever get to see them! Anyway, I wanted to drop a line to say that although I was hoping to be involved with "The King and I", my existing commitments will prevent me from doing so. My theatre group out of Bedford is repeating "Bethlehem's Big Night" this December and I am on board as the choreographer and a dancer. We will be putting up 4 confirmed shows, 6 possible, at this time in 2 or 3 venues, which is a bit more than our 2 last year. Then in January we begin work on "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" which will go up in June with 6 performances in 2 venues. I have already received a couple of calls regarding Fall 2000 work, but I think it's a little early to commit myself. I'm going to have to crash this summer after 10 solid months of rehearsals and shows. My regards to whoever reads this that I know. I miss working with the great Actorsingers group, but hopefully the next year will pass quickly and I'll get to be back on stage with y'all again. Keep on singing, dancing and acting. You guys know how to do it so well!

This is a great website! My name is Stephen Ahearn. Some of you might remember me! haha! Well, I graduated from Emerson College in Boston in May with a BFA degree in Acting. Since then I got a job with Broadway In Boston (We own the Colonial, Wilbur theatre, and the Charles Playhouse). We bring in Broadway National tours into Boston. I work in the group sales Department. I got offered a national tour of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD that starts in September. I will be playing Jem. I am waiting to hear how much I get, which will determine if I take the job or not. If I don't take it, I will hopefully be going on tour starting next July with UP WITH PEOPLE. I am sure everyone and their cousin has heard of that so I won't bother everyone by explaining what it is! I miss ActorSingers a great deal! I have yet to find a theatre group down here in Boston. that has the same "family" atmosphere as ActorSingers does. I hope I can make some future shows. If anyone ever wants house seats for any shows at the Colonial, Wilbur, or the Charles Playhouse(this is where Blue Man Group is playing) let me know. I would be happy to do it. My e-mail address is SAHEARN100@aol.com. Hope to see all of you soon!

I was surfing the Web when I found this site. Its quite interesting. I worked on the productions of 42nd St, Mame and Singing in the Rain as well as with the Jr. Actorsingers. I am glad to see that you guys are still keeping up the good work. In case any one remembers me, you can tell them that I'm working on my MFA in Stage Management at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music. I really enjoyed my few year with the compnay and wish you all the best of luck.
