Needed: Young Italian-looking actress for pro-bono role

Please reply directly to Tatiana if interested and mention GIAA
"Tiziana Rinaldi"

Dear Mr. Fioretta,

It’s a pleasure to meet you. As you can see from the project description below, I need to make sure that the actress can be available for a pro-bono project. The production is very low key, and the video will appear online — I’m not thinking of any festivals, etc… Also, the video will not be monetized.

The goal is to experiment with visual formats and not to look for promotion or exposure with this individual segment. I’m honing a programming idea where poetry segments, such as this one, may serve as interstitials between field or studio pieces (instead of PSAs or ads, let’s say).

Kindly let me know if you could help guide my search, and if you’d like that I call you for any additional information and/or clarification.

Best regards,
Tiziana Rinaldi

Dooples Show at the Cherry Lane

Video Link:

Media contact: Susan Horn

Cell Phone: 201-519-1977



Limited Engagement at the Renowned Cherry Lane Theater

December 16th – 20th

Dr. Lynn Hunter, an established early childhood educator and the writer and producer of the acclaimed children’s show “The Dooples in the Land of Doo – The Musical!” announced that the show will return to the New York stage for a limited engagement at the renowned Cherry Lane Theater, 38 Commerce St., NYC from December 16 – 20, 2015.

After its original sold-out run at the 2014 Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival on Broadway last March, the show generated impressive reviews. WNBC-TV called the show “A musical treat for young bookworms…and adults too!” and said the show “leaps from the page to the stage!”

Lynn collaborated with composer Charles Mandracchia, (Valentino the Musical), who is credited as Director/Composer/graphic artist and co-developer, to create this motivational, live theatrical event that makes learning fun and exciting for young children. Mr. Mandracchia has Broadway experience as an actor and singer in Grand Hotel - the Musical, South Pacific, and the New York City Opera Company.

The Dooples are a colorful, friendly group of writing tools that live in the Land of Doo and come to life in the land of Doo. Together, they share many adventures and experiences through which children empower themselves with their own imagination and personify the conviction that “to learn is to do and to do is to learn.”

“I am so excited to bring The Dooples back to New York and to welcome everyone – both those who are familiar with the Dooples books to see it in this format and those who are not familiar with the Dooples to meet them for the first time live on-stage,” said Dr. Hunter.

Tickets for “The Dooples in the Land of Doo – The Musical are available for performances on Wednesday and Thursday, December 16th and 17th at 10:30 noon, Friday, December 18th at 12:00 noon and 4:30 pm, Saturday, December 19th at 12:00 noon, 3:30 pm and 7:00 pm and Sunday, December 20th at 12:00 noon and 3:30 pm. Ticket prices are $29.00 for adults, $19.00 for children and $11.00/ ticket for groups of ten or more children. To purchase tickets visit or the Cherry Lane Theater ticket site directly A free copy of “Meet the Dooples” will be given with the purchase of a children’s ticket.
