Find A Way.jpg


This weekend, the theatrical debut of Find A Way will be screened in Greensboro, NC.  The tragic story of Harry Cohen and Alamance County football player.   Harry was a person that always wanted to find a way to do the things that needed to be done.  Either in his life or on the football field.  

 As captain of the football team he was a role model and someone his friends and the Burlington youth could look up to.  He always had a smile on his face and was there if you needed him.  Harry quarterbacked for the Bulldogs the last time on Friday, August 26th, 2011.  He was found unresponsive in his bed the following Sunday and was rushed to the hospital and passed away the next day.

This film is not about how Harry died, it is about the way he lived. That's what inspired Cornelius Muller to write the screenplay.  "Find a way" are the words his teammates clung to in order to cope with Harry's death.  It involves four fictional families who discover that relationships are what matter most.






 



Meme Simmons Loves Theatre

Meme Simmons HS1.jpgThe theatre is something special.  Meme Simmons knows that.  She was drawn to it as a child.  First singing in the choir at age four then performing in high school plays for five years since she did her first musical with the high school when she was still in the eighth grade.


From high school she went straight to college in New York City.  Eventually landing roles in off-broadway productions and touring companies.


Now she's back in her hometown bringing her theatrical talent to the people of Jacksonville, North Carolina.  Here she has established Debbie's Angels Productions to produce shows and teach acting with the help of her relatives and friends.


In Jacksonville she has helped produce a musical at Southwest High School and directed theatre classes for the city's Parks and Recreation Department.  Debbie's Angels produced a musical called Broadway After Dark last year and has plans for two more adult performances this year and one for kids.
