this is wonderful! how do we get in touch with the author to see if she'd be interested in an author's night with a arizona-based non-profit?
So proud of Mr. Almquist and the work he does, the work all our teachers do, in our community. Thank you, Art, for being a stellar example of the importance of teaching and the arts in our schools!
Too bad we don't have a HS Theatre month where all the drama departments compete with their best show. I had friends that invited us to a Desert Christian performance at TCC and it was phenomenal! Would be fun to showcase all this local talent.
He is the best and the performances he creates are incredible! Don't miss any performances of his students at Tucson High!
Great artists and teachers. They support and encourage you to explore your inner creativity.
Nice picture guys. No framing, no interesting angle, no drama captured.
Jesus christ, it almost makes the article look good by comparison.
I assume the process went like this:
"Hey we have to write this article about this Live Musical or this Man-theatre or whatever... what do we do?"
"Easy, we don't talk to ANY of the students, take only one picture which shows off none of the things talked about by the single person we'll ask about any of this."
"Well what's the point?"
"I dunno'. To be honest this is don't really matter none as we assume that it's been this way for years, and it's not like this is new or whatever."
"Couldn't we ask?"
"No, and shut up, I need to take the single picture we're going to use for this article. *snap* Okay, now we can leave."
Although I'm probably just salty as I'm not in it. [>:/
In all seriousness I hope that C.R.E..A.M. is not legally protected because what these guys are doing is awesome. Tucson needs more people like this!

Hopefully U of A can get it back together. Meanwhile, thank you Etherton!
So happy I came across this! Can't wait to get to know Sophie and the family! I also have a daughter with Down's syndrome and have worked hard on getting her involved. When people get to know "Jenna", they forget about the Down syndrome :) Here's a link to one of the articles about an experience Jenna was able to enjoy recently. http://on.si.com/23YtMDA Look forward to reading your book!
I will order this book.A lifelong interest but only lately I have learned about books like this.I own quite. a few books about the. First Nation but I am hoping to hold soon this book in ny hands.Thank you. Veronica Bolay,rha,fGerman born,Ireland,Dublin
The article does capture the enthusiasm and love of theater present within the cast and Director.I trust readers recognize the use of the word "amateurs" as stated by the reviewer 'in the true sense of the word' means someone who engages in a pursuit on an unpaid basis not someone who is inept.The cast does a beautiful job. Go and see for yourself!
Please correct the director's name to Mike Wilkinson for the well done Mousetrap article. Thanks, Ross Rohde
I have worked with children for over 20 yrs. but only once with a child diagnosed with Down Syndrome and he was also profoundly mentally retarded so I am very eager to read about Safie. I did once go bowling with an aquaintance and her 21 yr old brother who was, more than anything, very bossy. He was a completely different example of Down Syndrome. Like all of us, the diagnosis does not make the unique individual who carries it any different deep down. This story will be about Safie who has Down Syndrome, not Down syndrome that has Sofie. I want to learn about DS but even moree I want to get to know Sofie and her family.
I really appreciate being able to visit artists in their workspaces and some even in their homes to view their artwork and talk to them about it, making that personal connection.
Primo! Margaret Reagan has done it again!! What a wonderful write-up of the Artist-run (with Dirk Arnold's leadership, once again) Open Studios Tour. And our Nancy C. highlighted! Amazing Kudos! Nancy, Greta, Dirk, Margaret, and all of us Tucson Artists willing to face the heatful elements for the next two weekends. Crowds and Sales welcomed!!
Thanks Margaret....Your attention to the work of local artists is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for caring, Pasquale. As you may have noticed, I've been invited to give a talk about YOU, FASCINATING YOU at a yacht club in Naples, Florida. Interest in the novel and musical continues to build.
I don't know what happened to my old friend Jim Hatch that I told you I would get you in touch with 3-4 weeks ago. He never got back to me, but I m sure I will hear from him one of these days. Good luck with Margit & Pasquale.
