Carol Kassie

Carol Kassie has had a deep and abiding love for the arts, particularly theatre, since she was a small child and her parents presented her with an original Broadway cast recording of "My Fair Lady". Armed with a degree in Theatre from Sir George Williams University (now Concordia University) in Montreal, Canada, she became a librarian. She spent 30 years in Ottawa, Canada, raising two children with her husband, Ralph, working first as a librarian and then in the family's Army/Navy business, all the while actively participating in many of the Ottawa Community's cultural events. A move to South Florida in 2001 offered her an opportunity to return to her first love, theatre, and she jumped at the chance she currently does freelance theatrical marketing, public relations, and audience growth and development for various local and national theatres, theatre companies, and cultural organizations, and serves on the board of directors of the South Florida Theatre League as chairman of the Marketing Committee . www.carolkassie.com

Audience response to Pigs Do Fly Productions' first outing, Fifty Plus -- A Celebration of Life... As We Know It confirmed what the company's producer and artistic director, Ellen Wacher already knew - that the short, humorous plays she and her production team chose to present last May in Ft.

The show sold out at Empire Stage, and sold even more tickets than anticipated when it ran for eight 'encore' performances in Boca Raton in August. The company's newest production Fifty Plus -- A New Attitude! will run at Empire Stage from September 11th through September 21st.

Evening Star Productions' August production has just about everything any theatre-goer would want to see on stage: comedy, romance, suspense, adventure, several cases of mistaken identity, and a happy ending. William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors might have been written in 1594, but it's as funny and witty and sharp in 2014 as it was 420 years ago.

"Kevin and I have wanted to work together for a while, and this was a terrific opportunity," says Leeds. "And then, of course, the question became - what should we do?!"

The reviews for Leonard Gershe's Butterflies Are Free were unanimously raves when it opened on Broadway in 1969, and the play ended up winning a number of awards that season. The play focuses on Don Baker, blind since birth, whose over-protective mother is forced to come to terms with her son's bid for independence when he sets up in a Manhattan apartment on his own. He soon makes the acquaintance of his off-the-wall, liberated, actress neighbor Jill. Don learns the kind of things from Jill that his mother would never have taught him! And Jill learns from Don what growing up and being free is really all about.

Avenue Q has been called the 'funniest dirty musical' or 'the dirtiest funny musical' ever. Written by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Frozen) the Tony Award-winning show is a clever and irreverent look at the world through the eyes of the residents of Avenue Q as they explore and address the issues associated with growing up in the 'real' world, rather than the one their parents - and Sesame Street - described to them. Using a unique combination of humans and puppets, the musical chronicles its characters' struggles to find decent jobs, stable relationships, and their purpose in life.
