The Penny Award Winner...
Catherine Z. Andruskevich


The Actorsingers are honored to present Catherine with this season's Penny Award. This award is bestowed upon an Actorsinger member whose efforts and excellence excell all expectations of our membership.

The organization celebrates the contributions of this dedicated "Renaissance woman". During her history with The Actorsingers, Catherine has donned several hats-as a Past President, a vital chairwoman of several boards including auditions, building and planning, hair and make-up, sets and props, as well as various other production and technical committees. In addition, this Actorsinger is a superb performer and is the director of this production!

Whether on-stage, back-stage or off-stage, Catherine's hard work and determination illuminate her as a true shining star. We thank her for all her efforts and are proud to know Catherine as a director, a performer, an Actorsinger and as a friend.

We applaud and thank you!

Coming Next Spring!
BARNUM

Before Radio, Before Special Effects, There was BARNUM!

This musical offers a guided tour of the highlights of Phineas Taylor Barnum's career from 1835 to 1880, when he joins James A. Bailey to create "The Greatest Show on Earth". Along the way, we are treated to such legendary sucker-bait attractions as Joice heath, George Washington's alleged 160 year old nurse, the midget Tom Thumb, Jumbo the elephant, the Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind and the three ring circus. The story of Phineas Taylor Barnum (America's "Prince of Humbug") promises a circus atmosphere full of color, light, tumbling, clowning, marching, twirling and juggling. Noteworthy songs from the show include: "There Is a Sucker Born Ev'ry Minute", "The Colors of My Life", "One Brick at a Time", "Bigger Isn't Better", "Join the Circus" and "Come Follow the Band".
