Michael Cappetta -- Congratulations to Michael Capetta for accepting a position as a producer with Nightline News in California. Formerly a producer for ABC in New York, Michael has worked on Dancing with the Stars and other shows. Michael played Detective Schrank in our 2000 production of West Side Story (and did a phenomenal job). While in Cleveland at age 12, he completed an intern program with TV5 and Tracy Carloss. Keep up the great work, Michael! We'll be watching more Nightline News these days!

Brandon Fleming had the part of Gene Kelly in Singing in the Rain (2001). And yes, he actually danced in rain on our UpStage stage! What a trick that was! Brandon, who also has the title of "First UpStage Kiss," just moved to Los Angeles to perform in Memphis the Musical. We are so proud of you, Brandon!
