For those Fans on-line, we hope you enjoy our official web site. We will be updating it each month with new cast and fan profiles. (To fully appreciate the site you should have Netscape.) .... As the Fan Club grows with the advancement of modern technology, we will be starting an E-mailing List to automatically send out the "New News" on-line. Please E-mail me at: email@example.com. Do not E-mail me from a temporary address -- this would be useless. You can also use this to send any problems with theaters and prints, etc. But do not expect me to answer all questions. (I am one person.) .... Anyone who is not on-line can still get the "News" the traditional way.
