Rappahannock News - - THE RAPP -

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.
