DIY Network is casting families in the Atlanta area for its new series: Mega Dens! This is a show where awkward or under-used family rooms get a much needed makeover……but this ain’t your mother’s makeover show! We’re not talking about new TV trays and a coat of paint. We’re talking movie theater, high-end game room, wine snob’s paradise, techno-geek Shangri-la, sports or music shrine, the possibilities are endless! If you’re interested or know someone who might be, please email me at marygrace@picturewindow.tv and I’ll send you more information. Thanks!

Night Blooms @ Horizon Theatre

Last Two Week for this world premiere at Horizon Theatre.
Box Office 404-584-7450

Wednesday, 29 September 2010
By Manning Harris
“Night Blooms,” the new play having its world premiere at Horizon Theatre, is going to win the Pulitzer Prize
for Drama.
Granddaddy Stafford (Tom Thon), who’s on oxygen but still manages to smoke and drink and cuss with
hilarious vigor.
I can’t say enough good things about this cast. Ms. Clements, Ms. Cochran, and Mr. Thon, for example, are
giving the performances of their careers, ….

through October 24, 2010
Margaret Baldwin has woven an incredible fabric out of the history of the March on Montgomery in 1965 led
by Martin Luther King, Jr., and a family living in Selma and how they dealt with the movement. What is truly
unique about the play is how she has managed to deal with the matter in a way that provides more laughter and
compassion than anger and sadness.
… the grumpy old geezer, Granddaddy Buzz, (is) played to perfection by Tom Thon.

‘Night Blooms’ provides intimate view of civil rights era
By Wendell Brock
For the AJC
September 27, 2010
In a fall theater season with an unusual outpouring of Southern stories, this Horizon Theatre world premiere
directed by Karen Robinson shines like a hidden gem. Marrying a delicious sense of comedy with a Chekhovian
affection for her subjects, (Margaret) Baldwin shows a careful understanding of the quotidian details of
Southern life, circa the 1960s, and the complicated relationships born from the genteel racism, and escalating
violence, of a segregated society.
Tom Thon is terrific as Lucille’s dying husband, who carries a flask, cusses with talent and sneaks smokes
even though he’s tied to an oxygen tank.

“Acting as Casting Director “

“Acting as Casting Director ”
Workshop
Tuesday, NOVEMBER 9TH

C&J Casting Charlotte Office
5:30 PM – 10:00 pm (dinner included)
$150.00
Age 16 and up

This commercial audition workshop focuses on the actor learning audition skills and techniques THROUGH THE EYES OF THE CLIENT/DIRECTOR/CASTING DIRECTOR

YOU, the actor,
will take on the roles of Client, Director and Casting Director

YOU, the actor,
will ‘audition’ other actors with sides from various spots

YOU, the actor,
will also take on the role of Actor, auditioning for the other ‘Clients/Directors/Casting Directors

At C&J we have had the privilege of watching thousands of auditions and seeing what audition skills work, and which ones don’t. We also have had the benefit of speaking with the client, the producers, the ad agency, and the director so that we know what they are looking for in terms of a performance. This workshop shares this information with you, the actor, so that you may audition with a renewed understanding and clarity of what is expected from you.
