RAAC in BOOM
Three RAAC Community Theatre actors are featured in the premier edition of BOOM, a new magazine published by Piedmont Media (The Fauquier Times) in Warrenton, targeted to the Baby Boom generation.
The story, written by RAAC Theatre artistic director Patty Hardee, highlights the ways some boomers turn to creative activities to balance and enhance their work lives.
Veteran actor/director Stephanie said she has always been enthralled with theatre and finds that many of the principles of acting also apply to her work as a speech pathologist in the Fauquier County public schools. Warrenton dermatologist Larry Finkel, who appeared the RAAC productions of “The Old Couple” and “Arcadia,” said he finds that the requirement to be in “in the moment” on stage also extends to his listening skills with patients. And RAAC newcomer Peggy Emmling, retired from the Foreign Service, said she turned to acting to relieve the monotony of her work overseas.
BOOM, a free quarterly publication, can be found at popular spots around Fauquier County.
