Filmmaker seeks beautiful people for feature film


August 20, 1993|By SYLVIA BADGER

Exciting news for area actors and actresses: A major feature film, directed by Bruce Beresford ("Driving Miss Daisy," "Her Alibi," "Tender Mercies"), will be shot in Maryland this fall and they need people for supporting roles and extras.

Here's the scoop: Casting directors are looking for girls ages 6 to 11, including identical twins; boys ages 7 to 10; women ages 30s and 40s, including one extremely overweight and pretty woman; men age 30 and up; and girls age 17 or 18, who must be very beautiful and have very strong acting skills. If you fit into these groups and are interested, please send a picture and resume to: Eastern Shore Productions, Inc., 222 St. Paul St., Suite 3401, Baltimore, MD 21202, Attention: Casting Department. Good luck!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to 85-year-old Sister Charles, SSND, who has been ill but is recovering in the infirmary of the Villa Assumpta Mother House on Bellona Avenue. As a matter of fact, after a long teaching career, Sister Charles has taken up residence at the Mother House.

Over the years, this delightful lady taught thousands of Baltimore youngsters, including one of Maryland's best-known celebrities, Tom Clancy, author and part owner of the Baltimore Orioles. Clancy was in her sixth-grade class at St. Matthews on Loch Raven Boulevard many years ago.

Clancy was out of town promoting his new book, "Beyond All Reason." But as soon as he heard of her illness, Clancy placed several calls to Sister Charles. Every call caught her napping, so he left his number and asked that they call him when she could talk -- which indeed she did and they had a five-minute chat.


I'm so sorry that I will miss all the activities surrounding the Sunday wedding of Lisa Burgemeister, the daughter of Towsonites Claudenia and Wayne, and Dan Wildasin. The fun-filled nuptial weekend begins today at Grand View Golf Course, just over the Pennsylvania line, which the groom's family owns. The day of golf will end with a barbecue at the club. Saturday, approximately 150 wedding guests are invited to Camden Yards for dinner and the game.

Lisa and Dan will be married Sunday afternoon at St. Michael's Lutheran Church and the reception will be at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn, which is the only place two young Marriott executives would think of having a reception.

Congrats to Cleos R. Fenn, the widow of the Rev. Don Frank

Fenn, and soon to be Baltimore's newest centenarian. She'll be celebrating her 100th birthday Sunday . . .

I'm told that the officers of the Maryland Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America were elected in a most orderly fashion, unlike the election of the officers of the Advertising Association. The PR types will be led by president Katie Ryan, University of Baltimore; president-elect Dave Imre, Imre and Associates; first vice president Jody Buffington, Blue Cross Blue Shield; second vice president Richards Badmington, CEO James Holechek; treasurer Robyn Landry, American Heart Association; and secretary Catherine Campbell, Blue Cross Blue Shield.
