(Friend/Miss Casablanca 1958 Brianna!)
You all know Brianna don't you? Well true to her duties she has been sharing the good ways of the Casablanca all around! A few weeks ago she took a "masters acting class" with a local and international celebrity named Rich Affannato who is not only from Wichita Falls but has made it big on the Great White Way (Broadway).
-Mr Affannato's Broadway and National Tour credits include Les Miserables (as Cosette), The Producers (as Karmen Giah), and Civil War. Off-Broadway he was in Forbidden Broadway-20th Anniversary Edition, Slut, Illyria, and many more. He co-produced "Peter and the Starcatcher," the origin story of Peter Pan. The play was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and won five of them, Best Actor in a featured role, Best Sound design, Best Costume design, Best Scenic design, and Best Lighting design.
As I mentioned before Brianna was fortunate enough to take part in an acting workshop with Mr. Affannato.
(Rich Affannato & Brianna!)She also managed a little something for the Casablanca from him too!
"To the Casablanca!
Thanks for the Good Times.
Here's Looking At You Kid!"
HOW ABOUT THAT?!!! Not only did he sign it but graciously played along and added a fun little message. Thank you so much Brianna, I am going to have to get a frame and hang this up somewhere!
Holy cow I'm still in shock!
