MESSAGE (right).jpg

President’s Message


As I sit here pondering what message to share with all of you, my heart and mind continues to want to say something about what happened two weeks ago in Orlando. It has been difficult to put in writing the words to adequately communicate my condolences, support and grief. We lived in Orlando for 12 years and worked within the theatre & entertainment industry during that time. We left Orlando to return to our home in San Francisco 17 years ago, but we still have many many friends and colleagues who are there and we feel their pain.

My friend, Elizabeth Dean, who is a CTI coach and actress, posted on FaceBook about the event. She shared a link to the Galaxy of Broadway Stars’ recording of "What the World Needs Now" And I listened. Then I listened again. They are addressing a need for love for one another to be present in the world - but what I think it is really addressing is for us to consider the question, “What would happen if we could drop all of our conditions, just for a moment, so we can be present with all of the magnificence, purity and light that dwells within each one of us? To experience UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, even for a moment?

So, my message is to all of our members, who give of their time to help make the world a better place. Elizabeth Dean expressed it so eloquently, “Thank you. Thank you to all of you that are sharing your heart, sharing your grief, sharing your support, sharing your talents and sharing your LOVE. The world is watching. And you are helping. I’m so very proud of all of you and our community, and so very grateful to be even the smallest part of it. Thank you.”


--Ricci Victorio, President
