Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit rolls out the red carpet for a preview of
this week’s Count Basie Theatre Awards, the annual event that honors the best of Monmouth
County’s high school performing arts productions.
We’ll give you the local
color, including the names of the nominees from greater Red Bank area schools
plus we’ve got an exclusive interview with Siobhan Fallon Hogan, the
TV-movie actress (and Count Basie board member) who should be instantly
recognizable as the bus driver in Forrest Gump, Elaine’s annoying roommate
in Seinfeld, and dozens of other high-profile roles.
But that’s not all: order in the next ten minutes and we’ll throw in,
absolutely free, a look at 2009’s Bobfest, the yearly Bob Dylan
birthday tribute concert organized by and starring favorite Shore saloon
singer Pat Guadagno and his Tired Horses. It’s going on tonight at Two River Theater, and a few tickets are still up for grabs as we post this, so you
know what to do.
Old friends, tomorrow’s talents they’re all right here, in the pixelated
pages of Red Bank oRBit.
