This production by WEST Performing Arts at West End Studio Theatre on 2, 3, and 4 July 2009 was the culmination of a two-week camp (13 4-hour days).

I believe that this was the first performance Abe was in after West End Studio Theatre changed their name to WEST Performing Arts—a change prompted by their taking on the management of the Broadway Playhouse for the Santa Cruz Art League. I did not make a note of the name change at the time, and only reconstructed when it had occurred several years later.

The pictures below have links to larger images.

As one of the youngest actors in the teen group, Abe did not have a lead in this play, but a fairly substantial character role: Father Mulcahy.

He was also on the graphics team and did all the computer work for the graphics (using images from the web, Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0, and Pages):
