We've all been there - you are late for a meeting and try to make up the time by scaling the escalator steps in a single bound. When suddenly a clueless individual is ... wait for it ... standing on the LEFT. How do we teach these naive individuals? We send them to Sparkles Guide to New York class!

Eric Fletcher (Sparkle/Playwright) is the week one winner of the ninth annual June Players Theatre Short Play and Musical Festival - NYC. The short musical was directed by Michael Capecci will skill and whimsy. Sparkle takes us through the lessons we all need to learn in her own feisty style, leaving the audience feeling ready to take it to the streets of NYC. And they must have agreed with her since they voted her show Best of the Fest - week one.
