Whirlwind Weekend... Have A Great New Week!

Top Photo: Vivacious Actress Tanna Fredericks and co-star Tom Ayers greet guests after a great performance of their new play, the comedy  "Sylvia" at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica.  Tanna does a terrific job playing Sylvia the dog and designed her own costumes...  Tom plays 2 roles and is hilarious.  The play is  definitely worth checking out and plays 'til August.  She and friend Kat Kramer (above) play sisters in the upcoming film "Little Nikita"...  Karen Black plays their Mom....  sounds like a very, very, very colorful family!
