ATLANTA -- Are you a TV
junkie? A "secret soapie"? Then you won't want to miss the Behind the Scenes
program at the Atlanta Public Library in February. A prominent television
and off-Broadway theater director, Casey Childs, will appear at Behind the
Scenes on Friday, stopping off in Atlanta on his way from his Los Angeles TV
studio to his New York theater company.
The event begins with a reception at
6:30 p.m. at the North Greens Golf Course in Atlanta, followed by a
discussion with the artist at 7 p.m.
Childs has produced and directed
television for more than 25 years, working on such shows as "As the
World Turns" for CBS, "Another World" for NBC and "The City," and
"Loving," "One Life to Live," "All My Children" and segments of
"Spin City" for ABC. He also has directed shows for Turner
Broadcasting, Lifetime and Sony's Nick at Nite.
He has won two Emmy Awards for his
television directing and countless nominations for both producing
and directing in television.
Childs founded the New York
off-Broadway theater company Primary Stages in 1984 and since then
has produced over 100 new plays, many of them world premieres. He is
a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, with a bachelor's degree
in acting and a master's in directing. He has acted and directed all
over the United States and Great Britain and has taught and lectured
on the subjects of television and theater at leading theater schools
throughout the country. He also has made three trips to Russia as a
