As a child, our good pal Jamie Brindle (pictured to the left) played Christopher Robin in Theatre IV’s The House at Pooh Corner, the title character in Theatre IV’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible…, and a young ensemble member in Barksdale’s Carousel. Jamie’s now all grown up, and recently returned from his volunteer work with the Child Rescue Center in the African country of Sierra Leone, one of the most impoverished nations in the world.
Jamie filmed a lot of what he saw and many of the children whom he met, and now plans to create a documentary from this footage. He’s in contact with Whoopi Goldberg’s people in hopes of recruiting her to participate in this project. To that end, Jamie created a “trailer” for the documentary and has posted it on YouTube.
We couldn’t be more proud of this talented, young Theatre IV and Barksdale alum. If you’ve ever wondered how all those child actors turn out, please check out Jamie’s remarkable work at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fynZEXQNT5U.
We wish him the greatest success.
