Port Orchard Woman in Top 10 for Spot on ‘Survivor’

A note from our friend Amy Anderson, who we’ve been enjoying in shows at Western Washington Center for the Arts in Port Orchard:

My name is Amy Anderson and I have just been chosen from 2,100 applicants as one of the top 10 to win an audition for the TV show “SURVIVOR.”
I live in Kitsap County, and I would like to get the word out that I need votes to move on in the competition.
The link to vote is: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/survivor/casting_call/video_player.php?vid=3225&vs=Default&play=true&section=videos <http://www.cbs.com/primetime/survivor/casting_call/video_player.php?vid=3225&amp;vs=Default&amp;play=true&amp;section=videos>
I have also competed in the Port Orchard Idol (third place) at the Bayview Java Deli and have participated in community theater at WWCA — (“Fiddler on the Roof,” “Steel Magnolias,” “A Year with Frog and Toad” and coming soon in “Harvey” and “Guys and Dolls”).
Wouldn’t it be great to see a local person on “Survivor?”
Thanks,
Amy Anderson

WWCA Needs You to Light Things Up

This from our friend Jan Ewen, who’s directing “The Fantasticks” at Western Washington Center for the Arts in Port Orchard beginning Jan. 29:

I need an additional person to run lights for “The Fantasticks” and we open this Friday night. I want to have at least two people to share the job and so far I have one. We run Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights until Feb. 28. It’s going to be a great show and I promise you won’t get bored. I will know tomorrow what dates I need to fill. I would need the willing person to come to rehearsal Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 6 p.m. to learn the cues for the show. I have someone doing the lights this Friday night for sure and will know the rest of dates tomorrow as I stated earlier.

If you can help, call WWCA at 360.769.7469.
