TV Dinner Show -

R-ACT Theatre Productions

 Director's Message 

I would like to thank my creative team/planning committee, Amy Joseph, Dave Joseph, and Valerie Boyce. Amy for the "Reading Retro TV show" idea and for giving me the creative license to run (jump/skip), go wild, and try new things with it. Dave for taking on the commercials this year, and for all your help and creative ideas. Valerie for jumping and helping with producing, costumes, and anything that needed done. This show would've  never happened without you guys. Thank you! Thank you!


I, also, wish to thank my Assistant Director, Vicki Mann for all her help with the show. Carey Carothers for helping out with filming, painting, tech, and doing whatever she could to help. Veronica White for helping with props, stage managing and her mad organizational skills. Burt Mamula, Mike Nelson, John Proper and Dave Joseph for helping with filiming, editing, lights, sound, and all things technical. Kris Hurley for her lovely artwork and stage graphics. And a huge THANK YOU to Cody Schoeffer for putting on paper, creating, and building the set I wanted.


Finally I am thankful and blessed to have a such a talented and creative cast. Thanks to you all for chipping in to paint and build the set. Everyone has been lovely to work with, and I am so glad and grateful to have you all be a part of this TV Dinner Show. You Guys Rock!
