Center Stage


April 29, 2001|By Sloane Brown

It's hard to figure out the best part of "Center Stage Presents."

Maybe it was when the 400 guests got to catch up with old friends during the cocktail hour at the theater. Or perhaps when they were treated to delightful entertainment by cabaret performer Malcolm Gets, who included a song he wrote about his experiences playing Richard on the canceled sitcom "Caroline In The City."

Was it at the silent auction when Center Stage board member Terry Morgenthaler won a walk-on role in next season's production of the musical "The Pajama Game?" (We'll let you know when this star-of-tomorrow makes her debut. You can say you knew her when.)

Or perhaps it was the more than $156,000 raised for Center Stage.

Among those enjoying it all: Susan Bancroft, event chair; Jim Brady, Center Stage board president; Lynn Deering, John Keenan, Ed Bernard, Neal D. Borden, Juliet Eurich, Arthur F. Fergenson, Suzan Garabedian, Carole Goldberg and Jonna Gane Lazarus, board members; Irene Lewis, Center Stage artistic director; Tim Vasen, Center Stage resident director; Ann Pechar, Trahan Burden & Charles vice president; Bill Cassidy, Long & Foster sales manager; Caserlo Doyle, BGE vice president; Julie Wittelsberger, WJHU underwriting sales representative; Dr. Emma Stokes, Johns Hopkins University organization and development consultant; Bill Crowley, Arthur Andersen managing partner; Barbara Wilson, Forest Hill artist; John Cogar, Mercantile Bank & Trust senior vice president; Jeanne Ball, Charles Blazek & Co. actuary; Maurice Simpkins, Ryland Homes vice president; Kim Cavanaugh, Cavanaugh Homes owner; Louis Thalheimer, Lord Baltimore Capital Corp. chairman; and Kurt Decker, Washington disabilities lobbyist.
