    "Heath Ledger died from method acting.” Unfortunately, too many people think Method is all about wallowing in emotion: pain, self-pity, self-indulgence, being out of control, and selfishness. Time and time again when people label what some actor has done to prepare for a role, they call it ‘method.’ Unfortunately, this is not accurate. It is not a dangerous system of acting that is unrepeatable and created specifically for film. It’s derived primarily from the work of Stanislavski, Eugene Vahktangov, and Meyerhold, and it can be used without making trips to the mental hospital. It is the most misunderstood, misrepresented and mis-taught of all acting techniques. Come out and discover the truths and expose the myths with Lisa Formosa-Parmigiano — a Life Member of the Actors Studio.

    Sideways Stories from Wayside School - by John Olive
    Based on the book series by Louis Sachar
    Directed by Kari-Anne Innes
    You can imagine the confusion at Wayside School when the builder made a terrible mistake. Instead of building 30 classrooms side by side, he built them one on top of another. Perhaps this accounts for all the wacky goings-on in Mrs.Jewls' class where children are being turned into apples or dead rats are wearing raincoats, and little girls are trying to sell their toes. Based on the best-selling book series by Louis Sachar, these Sideways Stories are a ridiculously good time for the entire family.

    HILARIOUS COMEDY: It’s 1939 and Hollywood is all abuzz! Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s novel. The screenplay just isn’t working so the Hollywood mogul who is being hounded by the film’s stars and gossip reporters, enlists the help of famed screenwriter, Ben Hecht and pulls the formidable director, Victor Fleming off the set of The Wizard of Oz to fix it. For the next five days, locked in a room on a diet of bananas and peanuts, it will be up to these three men to fashion the screenplay for one of the greatest motion pictures ever made. Based on actual events, this tale of  desperation and genius makes for an engaging and hysterical night of entertainment.
