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?”

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.

Hannah Spool Gets Some TV Time

According to her Facebook page, Port Orchard actress Hannah Spool will be doing “featured extra” duty tonight on the season-finale episode of the TNT original series “Leverage.”

The show (on Channel 54 for most cable systsems), airs at 9 p.m., and — it being cable — probably will be re-run at least once later in the week.

Spool recently was in the cast of Western Washington Center for the Arts‘ production of the musical “Company,” and worked as an extra in the feature film “Twilight,” which was shot on the Olympic Peninsula.

She wrote,  “I’ll be wearing all black with my hair in low buns, a headset, and possibly wearing a clipboard.” She didn’t say when in the show her scene might be, and hinted that, well, it’s probably not huge. So don’t go to the kitchen for a refill until the commercials.

Anyway, it’s a start. And “Leverage” is a cool show.

WWCA’s Excellent ‘Fiddler’ Adds Two More Shows

I could have — and should have — predicted that Western Washington Center for the Arts would be obliged to extend their run of the current excellent production of “Fiddler on the Roof .”

The show, which was to have closed May 24, will add performances May 29 at 7:30 p.m. and May 30 at 5 p.m.

Reservations will be required to secure seating, as houses have been filling throughout the run. To make sure you’ve got a place to park your heinie and enjoy this show, call (360) 769-7469 or go online at wwca.us.
