Theater like many of the Arts, was deeply impacted in the past 18 months by COVID-19. As you can see in the photograph above, some members of the cast who were too young to be vaccinated wore masks at times.
The above photographs were used to promote the show to local media outlets. The show was scheduled to take place on an outdoor stage at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Lebanon, NJ. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate the first weekend. Fortunately someone in the cast had a connection with the South Ridge Community Church in Clinton. They are blessed with a large indoor gathering place. The opening weekend shows where held there.
The above photographs are some of the seniors who, for them, was their last SKIT show!
Look for an upcoming posting of actual show photographs.

What we feared most has sadly come true. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there will be no 2020 Freddy Awards. But wait – all is not lost. WFMZ and the wonderful State Theatre will be having a television special on Thursday, May 21 at 6:30 pm. Details are still being worked out on what will be in the special but I can’t wait!
My favorite photos from last year’s Freddy Awards are currently on display at the Easton Hospital Gallery inside the State Theatre. Of course, no one will be able to see them until we return a little more to the old normal and are able to re-open the theater. In the meantime, I wanted to share a slide show of my photos that are on display in the gallery.
If you see one you love they are for sale by the State Theater. Please contact them to find out how to purchase. Get in touch with me if you have any questions.
Composites are a wonderful option if you are in love with several photographs. I can take several and blend them together to make a single treasured memory. The number of photographs that look good in a composite depends on the size of the composite. Generally up to 5 looks good on 8×10 and 11×14. Up to 7 or more can work for 16 x 20 and larger
I create all of my composites on either single weight matboard or in the case of 5×30’s, double weight. These make the final product more durable and strong. In fact you could even display them as is or they fit perfectly in a frame.
These composites can have a show name on the top (as pictured) or for dance, a popular dance quote. I have several to choose from or we can use your own! On the bottom can have the name – year, just the name or nothing at all. It’s customized just for you!
Here is an example of a 5×30 composite. These are individual prints printed on a double-weight mat board. These can contain 5, 6 or 7 photos. This product can be horizontal (as pictured) or even vertical. These are great for unique spaces in a room like above a doorway or on top of other pictures. It’s durable enough to be displayed as-is. If you prefer a frame, they are available on Amazon. If you can’t find them, let me know and I’ll send you the link.
I have the ability to show you an online proof of what your composite will look like before it’s created.
