I am having so much fun being a part of The Young Professionals of The Actors Fund! In the past couple months we have really gained some momentum… In October, we hosted The Actors Fund Community Arts Festival, which included a Halloween screening of the cult classic and ultimate “sleepover movie staple” Clue with an amazing talkback with Michael McKean and the director Jonathan Lynn.
