RTC's Youth Celebrate With Music And Magic
The Rockaway Theatre Company hosted a soiree at Aviator Sports on Saturday, January 17, to thank all the talented, young thespians who contributed to the five blockbuster productions of the 2008 season. Among the special guests were Moshe Acevedo, Griffin Brackley, Emily Bibby, Valerie Browning, Caitlyn Byrne, Kate Calciano, Reilly Charles, Nicholas Compagnone, Miranda Cornell, Chris Dawkins, Amanda, Carly, Celene and Peter Ebert, Laurie Klein, Kevin Logar, Samantha Mackoff, Catherine Muldoon, Joshua Nelson, Michael Newman, Kimberly Omezi, Hayden Signoretti, Nick Tastsis, Andrew Wagner and Judith Wanderer. RTC teens Judith Wanderer, Amanda Ebert and Samantha Mackoff acted as DJs while King Henry, the magician, entertained with a magic show which included his "lovely assistants" Hayden Signoretti and Matthew Smilardi. The kids performed some of their own magic on the ice, executing a variety of axels and spirals as well as a few flops after lunch and the entertainment.
The RTC thanks the staff at Aviator Sports for making the event so enjoyable. Lead chaperone, Jodee Timpone, wishes to thank all the chaperones and volunteers who made the day such a great success. The younger members of the Rockaway Theatre Company are "pumped" for the 2009 season which begins on February 6, with the RTC Young People's Theatre Workshop production of Willy Wonka Jr. For further information or to make reservations, call 718-850-2450.
