If you have never been to a talk-back, they can be a lot of fun. Everyone stays after the performance and people involved with the production, sometimes the actors, or the director, come sit on the stage and talk about the production and answer the audience questions.

Driftwood has scored a biggie for their scheduled talk-backs on December 4 and December 11, Martin Charnin, creator and first director of the hit-musical "Annie."

"Martin Charnin is an American theatre director, lyricist, and composer. He started his Broadway career as one of the Jets in the musical "West Side Story." Perhaps his best-known work is as creator, lyricist and director on the musical "Annie," the show that inspired countless young people to get involved in theater. His Tony award-winning Broadway production of Annie celebrated its twentieth anniversary in 1997 with a return to Broadway. He subsequently directed the national tour."
