To Kill a Mockingbird in Long Beach

Our friend Alison Frazier is one of the most amazing women I have ever met.

Not only is she incredibly beautiful, but she is just talented beyond belief. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the U.C. Berkeley Theatre Department. Following that, she managed to secure a job as a sculptor for Disney's Imagineering and created a lot of the tools and objects for Roger Rabbit's Toon Ride at Disneyland. During her many years at Disney, she also did a number of plays in small community productions, homing her comedic timing.

Disney laid off a number of Imagineers in recent times and she was among the casualties. So, she decided to take the plunge in her mid-30's and try to eke out a living as an actress. We missed the first play she was in, but we caught her on the Cingular commercial she was in as well as when she had one line in Chris Rock's Everybody Hate Chris.

We just got word from her that she will be appearing in Long Beach's To Kill a Mockingbird, playing at the Long Beach Convention Center between October 17th through November 12th. This will mark the first time that I'll be seeing Alison in a serious role.

I'm hoping we can fit in a trip down south before November and the launch of NaNoWriMo.
