JTMF Alumni News

Alumni News #3 - September, 2007

Coming Attractions:

Kathy Garofano (Sound Technician, Psycho Beach Party) and Brady Neiderer (The Altruists) will be appearing in Shakespeare 70's production of The Glass Menagerie, September 20, 21, 22, 27, 28 & 29 at 8:00 PM and September 23 at 2:00 PM at the Don Evans Studio Theatre in Kendall Hall on the campus of The College of New Jersey, Ewing. Kathy will be playing Amanda and Brady will appear as her son, Tom. For tickets and info, please visit:

Adam Fitting (Psycho Beach Party) can currently be seen literally makin' bacon in a series of new TV commercials for Hatfield Quality Meats. Adam plays a doting dad making breakfast for his loving family. Aww! (You can't miss those giant hands placing strips of bacon on the plate.)

The James Tolin Memorial Fund is proud to announce their Sixth Annual AIDS Benefit, featuring Joe Orton's madhouse sex farce, What the Butler Saw, on June 20, 21 and 22, 2008. The production includes our first ever Sunday matinee. After a trip to Psycho Beach, the only logical place to go? Why, the madhouse, of course. But this is no ordinary madhouse. Here, the doctors are crazier than the patients and no one is truly who they appear to be. Sex; drugs; cross-dressing and other assorted mayhem are all on the bill in Orton's 1970 comedy of errors. Ticket sales are already breaking records for a JTMF show, so don't hesitate; order your tickets now by clicking on the link to the Kelsey Theatre, conveniently located to the right of this entry.

Special Announcements:

The James Tolin Memorial Fund Board will hold the first of their monthly meetings to plan the 2008 Event on Monday, September 10th, in Bordentown.

In Case You Missed It:

Josiah DeAndrea (The Altuists; Psycho Beach Party) saw two major milestones last month with the premier production of his play Angels as We Fall at the Kelsey Studio Theatre, and his New York debut in the NYC Fringe Festival Production of Alex Defazio's To Be Loved, which was directed by Jody Person (Mr. Charles...). Angels as We Fall also featured Damian Geata (The Altruists; Psycho Beach Party) while To Be Loved featured JTMF Scholarship winner, Eric A. Rojas. Congrats to all!
