THe Guys – The Walpole Footlighters

” The Guys ” is a two person play about a NYC fire chief who lost many of his men on 9/11 – he contacts a writer to help him compose the words that he will use to talk about his guys at their memorial services.

The Walpole Footlighters in Walpole, MA presented the play on September 9 – 11 2011 … it was the tenth anniversary of the tragedy. The play is in memory of those who lost their lives and in honor of the Walpole Fire men. All proceeds went to the fire department.

I had the opportunity to photograph 12 of the Walpole Fireman and the play.

Here is a short video of the images.,

It’s All About the Music … Man! Norwood High School – Dan Busler

Yes,  it’s all about a sleepy little town, a con man, some groovy musical numbers and Shipoopi  … lots and lots of Shipoopi  when Norwood High School in Norwood, MA presents … or “presented”  The Music Man!

And of course there are people making faces, dancing around like fools, dancing the “Shipoopi” and in the end the musician gets the girl …. which is the way it should be.

Today,  when you’re walking down the street or standing in the elevator or in a business meeting with your boss … Stand UP and yell “SHIPOOPI”  and then sit down.  You’ll either get fired or get a vacation.

The show opens ( or did open ) on September 16, 2011.  Wicked talented actors – here’s a fusion video from the rehearsals.
