Getting ready to film our fourth movie. This time at Canal Park.
They are now looking specifically for Hispanic men in their 30's. Apply now!
Hi there! I'm casting for a commercial to be used on the web/social media and I found your page while researching kids' groups in the area. I thought you might be a good resource or might have kids and families who would be interested! Would you mind sharing this message with any families you think might be interested and/or in any other facebook groups/community forums you're a part of? I'm looking for 10 families with children ages 1-6. Families do not have to be limited to just parents and kids; can be aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews etc. We are just trying to find existing structures of people that are already spending time together due to COVID-19. The shoot is in mid/late September and will take place in Northeast Ohio. Pay is $2000 and the time commitment is 2-5 hours. All different types of people are welcome and encouraged to submit! Please reach out if you have any questions about this! Here is the link for families to submit:
We need a soccer ball - for the play - Kinky Boots... anyone have one to share? Let me know if you do - Pam
The West Side Leader didn't give Memphis a very good review. The cast and crew must have stepped it up. Memphis was fantastic. Strong singing, great energy, very funny and told a wonderful story. Love Jonathan Merechant! Have seen him rock many Weathervane roles! Lead characters were very strong. Great job by all!
My husband and I saw Memphis tonight. Shout out to this AMAZING cast. It is an incredible production! If you are able to get a ticket, go see it!! 😃🎭🎟❤️
Tonight’s performance of ‘Memphis’ exceeded my expectations! If you are considering attending a performance, I encourage you to do so. It’s a strong storyline mixed with some humorous moments and a seriously talented cast! The music will make you want to dance! A well deserved standing ovation on opening night! (due to some of the language, I personally wouldn’t recommend for children)
Bravo to all cast and crew of “Memphis”!
I'm doing props for Memphis at Weathervane playhouse...the play is so good..and..it makes me want to cry.
Do NOT miss ALIAS GRACE, a riveting sorry with excellent acting. So glad I saw it yesterday!
Thank you for volunteering for the cast supper January 12. This includes Jill Forster, Clarissa Moser, Fran Korman, Nancy Mahoney (every time), Nancy Schafer and me, Wendy Cooley.
Thank you to the volunteers who gift wrapped at Barnes and Noble this holiday season. They include Bev Ricks, Helen Vari, Marta Williger, Mary Kay Finn, Mitzi Mild, Brenda Costarella, Alex Van Allen, Kevin Lambes, Harriet DeVito, Ralph Cooley (3 times) and me. We had fun and made over $300. Love you all, Wendy Cooley
