Learn the Mary Thoma method!

Mary Thoma will present two workshops for kids and teens on Feb. 2. Who's Mary? She's very active in the local theater community. She teaches at Southfield Middle. And she gets parts in local TV and film projects. Need more? Email her at

Don't think she's a method actress, but you never know. I'd personally love to see an 8-year-old pull off the line, "You don't understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it. It was you, Charley."

WHEN: Feb. 2.
AGES 8 to 10: 9 a.m. to noon. $50.
AGES 11 to 17: 1 to 5 p.m. $60.
WHERE: Shreveport Little Theatre, 812 Margaret Place.
TO REGISTER: SLT box office at (318) 424-4439 between noon and 4 p.m. Mon.-Fri. Or, email Mary at
DEADLINE: noon Feb. 1. Payment due in full.

Well, you won't find a better actor, teacher, or a NICER person. She's absolutely wonderful. I hope to be able to do a another show with her someday!

Alex: I am, I do, and they can!

However, The Method is but ONE of the methods I teach. You should come check us out sometime! : )

Thanks for your help promoting the workshops. As you know, I love your blog and follow it closely.

8-year-old Terry Malloys. How can you not love that.

Ladies and gentleman, Mike Martindale! An infamous grocery store killer from "The Mist."

Do not, I repeat, do not make this man mad in a checkout line. I've seen this man wield a bag of puppy chow like a ninja.

Mike Martindale is a bad man!!!

He killed my kittens in front of my two small children. All because I told him I didn't like one of his voice-overs. My daughter is in therapy now.

Thanks a lot Martindale!!!

Alexandyr Kent said...

Easy, now, Patrick. We know what you did one summer.

patrick kirton said...

D'OH!!! Curses, foiled again. Sucks to have blackmailers in high places!!

Alexandyr Kent said...

See, Mike? I got your back.

Haha! Thanks Alex! And I didn't kill any kittens... but I can stack dog food and 50lb bags of manure like a dockworker...
