Tarradiddle Players

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte has a wonderful troupe called the Tarradiddle Players, which is their resident touring company.  They do some performances here in Charlotte on CTC stages, but also travel from Virginia to South Carolina, “performing in schools, community centers and towns big and small for audiences who might otherwise never see a live play.”

And their newest company member is Mr. Salvador Garcia. 

What’s REALLY amazing about the opportunity is this:  It’s a full-time job, with salary and benefits, which means he can support himself fully on his acting career alone.  And the season, for which he is contracted in its entirety, runs from August to JUNE.  Yes, that’s a ten-month contract, here in Charlotte.

Looks like there’s been a long delay for the lip-chewing, fingernail-biting question of, “What if Sal is ready to move back to New York City, which we had both thought we’d be doing in May, before I’m able to sell some of my real estate and move there?”  I can rest a lot more comfortably now that any prolonged separation is A YEAR AWAY.  That is such a tremendous relief!

My heartfelt congratulations to Sal for this wonderful new role as a full-time working actor!  (And three cheers for not having to get up at 5:00am for work on a daily basis!)
