Carenna on her 9th Birthday
Carenna Katague Thompson is my youngest grand daughter.( Age 9). She is the only child of my youngest daughter Ditas. She loves to draw and sing, but I did not realized she can also act. I have two other teen-age grand daughters who are active in musical theaters in Walnut Creek. But Carenna's debut as a professional child actress is indeed a surprise. There are two other children in the cast ages 11 and 12, so Carenna is the youngest but she is as tall as the older kids. I am very proud of Carenna's accomplishments.
Here's Ditas announcement to all her friends and relatives on Carenna's Debut at the Sacramento Theatre Company (STC) dramatic play “ The Miracle Worker”. Carenna is playing as “Martha”. The play is scheduled from October 4 until the last week of October. If you live in the Sacramento area, I will appreciate if you attend this presentation of the Miracle Worker. I AM INDEED A PROUD GRAND PAPA!
Hello Carenna's Adoring Fans!
So here it is, Carenna's Debut at the Sacramento Theatre Company's "The Miracle Worker" on the MAIN STAGE! Some of you may know that she opted out of soccer this fall for obvious reasons so I was looking for something fun for her to do. We went to Sacramento Theatre Company asking about musical theater workshops and they asked her to audition for a speaking part in the dramatic play. She was immediately cast as "Martha" and has been a trooper attending 6 days a week rehearsals (Tuesday-Friday -4:30-8:30 pm and both Sat and Sun most of the day). Because this is an "equity" house, she was asked if she wanted to start earning toward her equity card?? but I opted to not do that right now...she's 9 for goodness sake! I did have to get a work permit for her.
As a full part of the cast, she needs to get credit for selling a certain amount of tickets, so if you do come see her, kindly tell the box office that you are coming to see Carenna Thompson as "Martha" and to credit her. Come see it early in the run as tickets will run scarce toward closing.
The box office # is STC Wells Fargo Pavilion Box Office located at 1419 H Street, Sacramento, CA 95814 Call For tickets, call 916.443.6722 or go to http://www.sactheatre.org/BoxOffice.html
Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you!
