The Bright Side of Life

Today I joined my fellow thespians in the Arts Walk Santa Clara 5K fun walk held in Central Park.  My team raised money for the Festival Theatre Ensemble, the troupe that produces the Los Gatos Shakespeare Festival.  Founder and Artistic Director, Bruce De Les Dernier and I led our quest.  And in the spirit of fun and frivolity I played “Patsy” to Bruce’s “King Arthur” while the rest of our crew marched behind.  It was a great afternoon and we raised $4,370 for FTE.  Huzzah!
