Well, Jim...there have been a few things going on that would have made you happy, had you the balls to stick around for them.
For a start, Brandon Harris has been in a Broadway show. May still be in it, for all I know. You would have loved that. He graduated from North Carolina School for the Performing Arts, did a summer in LA, and headed to New York, where he seems to be managing quite well.
Sean Arnold is singing at the Met. He has been in Europe this past summer, singing with various operas. At least, that's the impression I get from his Facebook posts. Is that awesome, or what!
Amanda Harris has a thriving theater tech career going on.
Michael Fariss is at Webster, which I know you would have been excited about, as it was Jason Boyd's alma mater.
Rob Morris (not "Robbie," any more) is at NCSPA. He came home in 2010 and directed "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" at Sam Bass. You would have eaten that up with a spoon!
All these successes are a tribute to your teaching. You started these people on their path. You did for them what you did for me at Sam Bass--gave them confidence in their own talents and made them see that theater is worth the work it takes to make it good. I'm sure there are many more...these are just the kids who allow me to keep up with them on facebook.
As for me...well, I'm still with Ramona at A Cut Above Costumes, and that will probably be my last job. However, I've been asked to be costumer for a new Austin theater company (in my spare time), and actually managed to screw my courage to the sticking place and audition for The Baron's Men. Oh...I'm directing "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" at Sam Bass (again), and using your teaching there, too.
Life goes on, my love, and your influence, with it.
