Ron Abdouch: hello

Ron Abdouch:

Steve Bross: Hi Ron, is this you that is on, or a Caravan person?

Ron Abdouch: Hi! It's actually me, Colleen Crawford - a CAravan person

Steve Bross: I have had Linda on here at OCP. She is fascinated with what is going on. I thought about

coming out with you, but thought since I could log on at the playhouse I would stay here. Duwain wants to

see what is going on too.

Ron Abdouch: okay

Steve Bross: Molly, are you on yet?

Steve Bross: Hi Colleen! This is Linda back at the Playhouse--you awake?

Molly Watson: Yes, our class is ready to ask our first question.

Steve Bross: Go for it!

Ron Abdouch: HI Molly! Go ahead

Molly Watson: Hi, my name is Ashley and i wanted to knowhow did the play relate to you as a person

Ron Abdouch: Hi Ashley! I realted very strongly to the play as a person. I know I've had my fair share of not

fitting in - especially as a kid.

Molly Watson: very interesting some of us thought the same

Molly Watson: Is it nerve wrecking or sometimes embaressing to act

Ron Abdouch: I think that if you scratch the surface - most people can relate to those feelings at some level,

don't you?

Ron Abdouch: Oh - yes sometimes it 's neve-wracking but, I'm used to it. I enjoy the nerveousness of theatre.

Molly Watson: Yes we wrote some poems about this we'll push them to you

Ron Abdouch: I saw them - they are absolutely incredible!

Molly Watson:

Ron Abdouch: Yes, I've got them on my screen right now!

Molly Watson: Hi! This is Logan. How long does it take you to remember your lines?


Molly Watson: How many plays have you been in and what's your favorite?

Ron Abdouch: oops - I accidentally hit CAPS LOCk!

Molly Watson: That's alright.

Ron Abdouch: I've probably been in about 60 plays in my life. My favorites are Pygmalion by George Bernanrd

Shaw & The Playboy of the Western World by J.M. Synge

Steve Bross: Are you folks going to show the Caravan your web pages?

Molly Watson: Yes we'll look at the poems now.

Molly Watson: Hi this is Cassie

Ron Abdouch: Hi Cassie!

Steve Bross: All you do is type in the web address.

Molly Watson: Would you please read my poem

Steve Bross: who are you?

Ron Abdouch: YEs - Just a ses Cassie

Molly Watson: I'm a sixth grader at Fullerton

Steve Bross: No, I mean who wants his poem read?

Molly Watson: Cassie

Ron Abdouch: It's a wonderful poem, Cassie. I'm glad you wanted Anatou to be herself. Besides. with her fair

skin she could get skin cancer!

Molly Watson: thanks for the reply heres Joe

Ron Abdouch: Hi Joe!

Steve Bross: Can you push your website again Miss Watson? I haven't got it yet.

Molly Watson: Hi i'm joe! If you star in a movie/play with any actor/actress who would it be? why?

Ron Abdouch: I would love to work with Meryl Streep - I would love to be challenged to meet her at that high


Molly Watson: thank you here's Danyelle.

Ron Abdouch: Hi Danyelle!

Steve Bross: Hello Danyelle.

Molly Watson: In the play was it hard working with all boys?

Ron Abdouch: It was fun - I have four brothers, so I'm used to boys!

Molly Watson: Why didnt Anatou stick up for herself in the play?

Ron Abdouch: Good question! She didn't have a whole lot of support. But, I think she tried to stick up for

herself as much as she could. Once she felt betrayed by Tarto and her parents were gone, I think she felt

hopeless and just did the only thing she could think of - she escaped.

Molly Watson: Thanks for devoting your time to answering our questions. We wish we could stay and talk

more about the poems, but nmwe have to go to math.

Ron Abdouch: Thank you! It was a lot of fun!

Ron Abdouch: Oh - and thank you for the incredible poems!

Molly Watson: Signing off from Fullerton! Thanks you!

Steve Bross: Have you ever been in a situation were you were the only one who thought something was

wrong, and all of your freinds thought it was right? It is hard to fight everyone.

Ron Abdouch: Yes it is!
