An exciting - and exhausting - time at the NETC conference in Sturbridge, MA Nov 12- 14, 2009. Andy Tighe and Lorin Zackular won first place in the Musical Theatre Cattle Calls. Josh Gordon and Kassondra Glen won first place in the Set Design contest. Adam Sperry won second place for makeup. In addition, Adam Sperry was asked to join the costumer of Wicked in NYC and Kassondra Glenn was asked to join the Stage Manager of Wicked backstage and run the show. WOW. Billy Goldstein, Josh Gordon, Andy Tighe and Lorin Zackular were asked to perform infront of the final banquet. Audience members included Laurence O'Keefe and Mike O'Malley amoung other prominent people in the industry.
