Little King is a vocal/chamber ensemble, featuring the music of Michael Sachs. Along with roommates and friends, the group consists of Andrew Halchak-clarinet, Michael Sachs-bass clarinet, Tomas Cruz-voice, Richard Saunders-voice, and Tim Norton-bass. Genre comparisons might be made with "the jazz", "classical", pop-singer-songwriter (not sure if this is a genre). We sincerely hope you enjoy the short but sweet sounds of our music.

Work In Progress Workshop


A table-read is one of the most valuable forms of feedback in screenwriting. The Work In Progress Workshop is a place for writers to bring screenplays or scenes to read out loud and workshop with other writers. If necessary, we ask that people with longer scripts (30+ pages) have specific scenes picked out so we can accommodate a higher number of people present at a given session.

Everyone is welcome, including beginners or actors who only want to read.

Tom Stathes OUTDOOR Cartoon Carnival


Its time for summer fun, Cartoon Carnival style! TSCC #15 will be held in LaunchPads awesome backyard*! How often do you get to see rare, ancient 16mm cartoons projected outdoors? Hmm? Thats what I thought. Be sure to bring all your friends to this very special event!

And thats the theme of the show--the great outdoors. Tom has hand-selected a group of weird, wacky, funny and obscure 16mm cartoons from the 1910s to the 1930s that feature or take place in the great outdoors.

Tom Stathes is a "Cartoon Cryptozoologist" with a rare film print collection comprised of over 1,000 shorts. His archive consists of pivotal series like Farmer Alfalfa, Felix the Cat, Out of the Inkwell, and many more. A native-New Yorker, Tom turned his passion for the citys animation legacy into a preservation mission. With his Bray Animation Project, he has worked with several film and comic historians to document a historic NY studios invaluable output. For more information about Toms work, go to cartoonsonfilm.com or brayanimation.weebly.com.

$10 at the door--includes popcorn!
Some grilled goodies will probably also be available for a donation.
