The Clarion is a classic cameo character

One of the things I love most about attending theatre at Lee is the occasional cameo appearance of the Lee Clarion.

Whenever there's a character reading a newspaper on stage, you can usually count on it being an edition of Lee's student newspaper. The last time I noticed the paper was during a production of "Enchanted April" on the Dixon Center stage.

Today the Lee Clarion was featured in another role, as a set piece, in the terrific Vest Building production of "My Children! My Africa!" You can see it crumpled up on the stage in the above photograph.

Acting isn't the only alternative use of the Lee Clarion, however. I previously wrote about other ways that the newspaper can be recycled after you're done reading it here.

I say all this to make a point, though.

If you're making a short film in your dorm room or even if you're a character in an upcoming Director's Showcase production, give me a call. I can make an excellent product placement deal.
