From da O2B2 BOD President!

Hi, everyone,

This is a reminder that the annual membership meeting of O2B2 will be held on Saturday, July 12, at 10am, at my house. Directions: [redacted – comment for more information!]

The primary business of the meeting is the election of Board members. Nominees for Board members are Bill Jones, Betsy Delaney, Greg Mangiapane, Sandra True, Lise Mendel-Kramer, Penny Martin, and Jo Rake.

I perform in Coriolanus at 2pm at Warehouse in DC, so I have to leave shortly after noon, but my wife Ginny says you can stay a while and chat after the meeting.

Good news: O2B2 was awarded a “Judges’ [Discretionary] Award of Excellence” for Then, Now, You at the NVTA Festival. Jo and Greg were the actors in it. We got a plaque that Betsy will bring to the meeting.

O2B2 has received approval to put on Catch-22 at Greenbelt Arts Center the weekends of June 5, 12, and 19 (though we may decide to make it only the last two weekends). I will direct. We will discuss details at the meeting.

Sorry about the short time slot for the meeting (I’ll have soft drinks available, though no lunch), but I’m pretty busy right now – I’m directing Measure For Measure at GAC, I’m playing Rev. Gardner in GAC’s Mrs. Warren’s Profession, I’m playing Citizen #3 in the Rude’s Coriolanus, and I’m producing a Children’s Theater version of Comedy Of Errors for Labor Day (when you take out the sex, you get just 20 minutes of slapstick and farce).
