Passing Through II - 1978

In April 1978, I had a lead role in a musical comedy called "Passing Through II."


It was the third in a series of productions written by Lawrence Lebin, an English professor at Lock Haven State College, in Lock Haven PA.

Here are 42 pictures from the show, rehearsals, cast parties, script, publicity & program. (Plus one old 16mm movie.)
