3-5-13 – Jgar Hellwig discovered very young that he was “different;” he liked to invent characters, have conversations with the trees and talk to his imaginary friend. Even though his family was “not artistic,” they appreciated, enjoyed and encouraged his talent as a performer and by the time he was twelve he was playing the guitar and entertaining his family and friends with his remarkable voice, which he understood even then, was his “ticket.” Although he had a teacher who criticized his voice Jgar was able to overcome this criticism and continue to do the thing which brings him not only work and recognition but extraordinary pleasure – sing. Listen to him tell his story and hear that remarkable voice in a cut from his CD. Also come see and hear him as the outrageous Miles Gloriosous in the delightful and hilarious Manatee Players production of “A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to the Forum”
3-12 13- – Actor, dancer, singer, director choreographer Rick Kerby says “his life has been one big wave, which he’s ridden wherever it took him.” Opportunities did seem to pop up in front of him but Rick was always ready – listen to the charming and funny story of how he learned to dance for his college audition. While on a trip to NY with his college to see shows Rick courageously placed himself in front of the wave by walking into Actors Equity and, as a non equity actor, auditioning for the tour of Oklahoma. He got the job and never looked back. He was continually working; touring and touring and touring in Oklahoma, The Best Little Whore House in Texas, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers he worked in Las Vegas and he taught. Today he brings that wealth of skill, experience and expertise to his position as producing artistic director of the Manatee Players Theater in Bradenton Florida, which is opening their brand new space with a production of Miss Saigon.

3-19-13 Bill Wagy is a much in demand “video producer” but this is only his most current identity. He says that he has had to keep re-inventing himself and believes that he will continue to add new identities. Confirming my belief in the importance of teachers, Bill tells the story of his “rescue” by Irene Planaseck, his high school speech/arts/drama teacher who “pulled him up and got him to do a public speaking something” and then put him in all the school plays; effectively turning a skinny (5’6 and 85 lbs) “scaredy cat shy guy,” into a high school star. And being “skinny” got him his first job as the “spotter” for the Redskins, who were broadcast on WMAL in DC, where he was hired because he not only knew football but could fit in the tiny both between large commentators Sam Hoff and Len Hathaway. From there he jumped to the job as the Sports Director at WIS the biggest radio station in South Carolina where by the age of 25 he’d won states Sportscaster of the Year Award. Listen to this charming, funny man talk about his stint in television and how got into video production.
