    Good question. It is a Seaside Institute program using the Rep's room, so I'm not sure. You can call them here: The Seaside Institute (850)231-2421

    Please post your findings.

    OMC, if I had known of the Hop/Boyle kiss and groping I would have had the camera ready. To the Rep, actors, and Rich Orloff, BRAVO!!!

    The play was hysterical and if you missed it you missed one of the funniest plays I've seen in years.

    Five amazing SoWallers on that stage last night, and they completely brought the script alive without a set, props, or costumes- just reading. Well, OK, their idea of reading a script is a bit more involved than reading.

    Rich Orloff's play was a giggle from start to finish with quite a few belly laughs thrown in. Thanks to Escape to Create, Mr. Orloff, and the Rep for another great night in SoWal.

    Stay tuned for info on the Rep student show- the cast of SWHS students will be following up last year's production of Blythe Spirit with another Rich Orloff play, The Whole Shebang. A fun choice, especially since the students get to meet the playwright. How cool is that?
