All the s'mores,
Camp Rolling Hills the Musical will be produced by the On Tour Company at Calhoun High School in Merrick, NY! I'm particularly jazzed 'n' honored since Calhoun is the high school I went to and loved. Being a part of the On Tour Company - actor, scribe, head of props, head of media, and eventually president - changed my life. It's what got me writing and acting and gave me the confidence to pursue a career as a theatre maker. The production will be in May 2020 and I'll be involved - meeting with the Drama and English classes as well as signing books. I seriously can't wait. :)
All the s'mores,
An incredible production of Hoboken Children's Theater at Mile Square Theatre. We could not be more impressed!
Excited to announce that Camp Rolling Hills the Musical will be produced this May, 2019 at Hoboken Children's Theater in Hoboken, NJ and by London District Catholic School Board in London, Ontario!
Another glowing review, this time from Theater Pizzazz. Favorite pull quotes below! Read the full article here.
"Under the exceptional direction of Jill Jaysen, this celebration of all things pre-teen summer features a bright score, smart lyrics, and a tight, comic pace.
The sizeable cast of young adults feature some of the best at-age acting of NYMF’s year. James Ignacio as Smelly makes a wonderful coming-of-age protagonist. Beatrice Tulchin plays the romantic interest, Slimey. Her heartfelt and intuitive scenes prove her wise beyond her years. All of the pre-teens wow, each with their own fully fleshed-out and textured characters.
The excitement of the cast’s sheer talent and zest makes Camp Rolling Hills more than worth the price of admission."

"'All the Songs on My iPod' is a searingly straightforward declaration of affection...could not possibly work better or hit harder...when paired with those ... honest lyrics and Ignacio's unadorned portrayal, it became the highlight of not just Camp Rolling Hills - a Musical, but of New York Musical Festival 2016 overall....I involuntarily wiped away a tear. At the Festival, as at camp, you never know what you'll find if you keep your eyes and your heart open."
