"My Necklace, Myself" co-star J.G. Franklin has recently joined a very good cause for the community of San Diego by participating in a series of interactive one-act plays. Created by hypnotherapist Wendy Hill, the Interactive Personal Growth Theater showcases simulated one-act plays that engage the audience to help them through their own personal problems and pains.

"Everywhere you went, it seemed, people were hurting, trying to resolve that pain inside them," Wendy says. "I wanted to help and thought that this would be a good way for me to give back to my community." (From Ozzie Roberts, SignonSanDiego.com. Read the full article here.)

Right now there are very small crowds witnessing this wonderful act of forgiveness and understanding, and although they do ask for donations, the entire experience is free to the public. For more information or to enjoy this terrific experience, click here, or if you are an actor and would like to participate in the process and gain some experience in improvisation, click here.
