Keeping everyone updated...

It's been two weeks since I last posted, so I thought I'd give you faithful fans an update.

Hannah's play started last weekend, which means she is almost ready to film again. (She played the punk character in Godspell and was marvelous. And very un-Blanche. ;) )

Sharayah's play will be going for several more weeks, so we won't be able to do anything with her for awhile. (She is a chorus member in a local production of "My Fair Lady." I'm hoping to go see her soon!)

However, having finally gotten over the worst of my accident recovery I'm now working on finding the school to serve as St. Lawrences. If any of you have any connections with a Catholic school in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area, please let me know!

Oh! And Anthony (Fish) is safely back from Arizona at last! You'll be happy to know that he's growing his hair out for the part.

Glad you're recovering!

I do not have connections with this school, and I am not sure what they would think of filming a movie there, but this church has an old school.


Here is an aerial picture of the church and the school. Sorry, that I can not be of much help but I thought that I would just let you know. :)

Hey, Elena, I have a brother that goes to a Catholic school here in the Twin Cities. You might be able to do some filming there.
