Dave Williamson reaps praise in Circus 1903

'But the heartbeat of the show is David Williamson’s ringmaster Willy Whipsnade engages with the audience as well as his young volunteers in a manner that is warm, inviting, spicy, spiky and hilarious. He has the voice and charisma of US actor Sam Elliott. There is no higher praise." https://ww...

Brad,

You need the FISM card membership number ... not your AMA number in order to qualify for the reduced registration.

Genii Online mystery tweet

Genii Online tweets:

“I'm sad to announce that due to circumstances beyond our control, Genii Online will be going silent for a while.

But don't fret. Every vanishing act ends with a reappearance. We'll be back some day.

In a puff of smoke.”
