Once again, The Angelina Project goes forward as part of Texas’ state-wide high school competition. This time it will be done at Uvalde High School in Uvalde, Texas, directed by Nathan Prater who has staged The Angelina Project previously. Nathan is the second director to repeat a staging of the play at another school.

Scott Taylor of Flower Mound High School has also chosen The Angelina Project as an entry for the competition; this marks the 22nd production of The Angelina Project in the Texas high school circuit.

Most recently, Melody G. McDaniel of Coronado High School in Lubbock, Texas will stage Angelina, making this the 23rd production in Texas.

In addition, The Angelina Project will have its first production by a community theatre at the CATS Playhouse in Lubbock Texas in February, 2013 as part of a statewide festival.

The Playwrights Guild of Canada has published The Tango Ladies Dance On, which I co-wrote with Yanira Contreras and Beatriz Pizano, in its online Stage Ready Scripts program. Check it out at:  Hit the “Purchase A Play” or “Look Up A Playwright” button, then fill in my name or the play title.
