This afternoon at 2:30 p.m. is your last chance to catch the delightful Once Upon a Mattress at the old Huntington High School at 900 8th Street.
My lovely wife and I caught last night's show and we had a blast. The performances were better than ever!
I also had the honor of making the official presentation to the winner of this year's Jim Stone Scholarship - it went to Cody Verbage, a talented young actor who's now studying at the prestigious NYU Tisch School of the Arts. He received a check for $1000 to apply toward his education.
Cody's yet another young performer who got his start on stage with the children's theatre. With First Stage, he was in Children of Eden, Peter Pan and Into the Woods.
So congratulations to him for a well-deserved honor - and one last recommendation to you, gentle reader, to check out Once Upon a Mattress while you can - it's a keeper!
