Hello everyone!

I just finished playing Beth in Neil Simon’s California Suite at the Actors Workout Studio in NoHO for three weeks. I also got to play the role of Diana for a week while the other actress recovered from the flu. Very fun and very challenging! I especially loved the Brittish Actress role of Diana (a bit of a diva) but she has a great heart and really loves her husband…it’s a touching scene of unrequited love, and I got to do my Brittish accent! Fun!

Neil Simon’s writing is awesome to work with and we had a very talented cadt and crew, so all in all it was a good experience.

Now I’m preparing a scene from the one act play Rosemary With Ginger for an intensive master class with my favorite acting teacher Larry Moss. Larry has coached several actors in academy award winning roles such as Hilary Swank and Leonardo DeCaprio. He is truly a master of the craft and one of the most inspirational people I’ve ever met; so when I get the chance to take his workshops I do so with relish! It’s very demanding work, but the best training I’ve ever received.

As for the short film my writing/producing partner and I are working on, we have a couple of new investors and hope to have all the necessary funds together tyo begin filming in the next month! If any generous philanthropists want to donate money to the cause, you may send money to Sonia Curtis C/O Get Real Productions at PO Box 57632, Sherman Oaks, Ca 91403-57632. This will be the first film I produce and have a starring role in. It is about a female hostage negotiator who has to deal with choosing between saving her own family and terrorists possibly succeeding at an attack. Jill and I have also been getting a couple other scripts we wrote out around town and are excited to get them into the right hands for TV production on a major network.

That’s it for now as far as business goes, but let me get in a quick plug……please adopt stray cats and dogs and love each other!  Peace!

Sonia
