“A Hatful of Rain” is A Wrap!

by on Sep.01, 2009, under News & Announcements

Thank you everyone who came to see “A Hatful of Rain.”  We closed this weekend and what an incredible journey it has been.  Created as a scene in my acting class at The Beverly Hills Playhouse with cast member Alicia Klein and former BHP student Brian Frederick, “Hatful” quickly took a life of it’s own.  With stunning performances by the entire cast, “Hatful” has created new opportunities for everyone involved.  Thank you to Dean Kreyling our director, The Katselas Theatre Company, and all of the Cast and Crew for making this Project a success.
