WARICK Warick is a Los Angeles native who has been working as a professional actor, television writer and teacher for more than 15 years. He was a longtime member of Los Angeles Theatresports, and trained and performed with The Groundlings and The Second City. He has per- formed comedy with the likes of Wayne Brady & Ryan Stiles of "Whose Line Is It Anyway," Mar- cia Wallace of "The Simpsons," Fred Willard, Larraine Newman of "Saturday Night Live," Julie Brown, Bruce Vilanch and Nathan Lane. He is a member of Actors Equity, the Screen Actors Guild and the Writer's Guild. Warick has also worked as a professional teacher, of both adults and children, for The Los Angeles Unified School District, and has led various outreach pro- grams, bringing arts education in- to the schools and community. Most recently, he cocreated the popular Los Angeles stage show for young professional actors, "Laugh Out." He is currently the sole licensed presenter of the world-famous Theatresports Im- provisation show, developed by Keith Johnstone, in Delaware and is planning Delaw0re Comedy Theater's first shows for summer of 2005 in Rehoboth and Dewey beachs. "I look forward to starting these classes and bringing professional improvisation training and shows to the area," Warick said. "Re- hoboth Beach is a natural choice for starting a venture such as this - given the high number of cre- atively inclined people, both relo- cating to the beach and already living and performing here." The classes, with a curriculum based on the work of famed im- provisation teachers Viola Spolin and Keith Johnstone, are designed to stimulate creative play, uncover the innate comic potential in each student through no-fail games and 'Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical' set for April at Possum Point Players Hyde," it really drew me in, and made the story new."

"Sometimes it's the chorus, or one principal or another, or there's one duet that catches me every time." Some song titles people may recognize include: "This is the Moment," "Bring on the Men," "Someone Like You" and "In His Eyes." Frazier said that important as it is in a show of this nature, the mu- sic is just one small part of what makes the show great. Director Jim Hartzell of Georgetown has commented about his delight in the talent of the cast, and Stage Manager Cas- sandra Petersen of Milton is anx- ious to see all the technical as- pects come together, as it will in another month. "Jekyll & Hyde" will be spon- sored by Wilmington College in Georgetown and presented at 8 p.m., April 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23; and at 2 p.m., April 17 and April spired a dedicated following. The production will be presented by Possum Point Players in George- town, beginning Friday, April 15. More than just a musical play, "Jekyll & Hyde"features dialogue that is also sung. The transition between speech and song is sub- tle. "Before I ever heard this music, I was familiar with the story of Jekyll & Hyde," Musical Director Bob Frazier of Dover recently ex- plained. "We all are. What I was not pre- pared for was the depth and breadth of this music," he said. The story of Jekyll and Hyde most know has a dark, macabre theme, although "Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical" adds romance and tenderness. Part of that is exhibit- ed through the music. "Like when I did 'Christmas Carol'," said Frazier, referring to another time he acted as musical director. "You're looking for something fresh in a familiar story.
