    As you may or may not know I use to work for Sierra Repertory Theater. While I was there I worked back stage for "Miracle Worker" the play about Helen Keller. Well Helen Keller was played by Leah Bateman. She's grown up and has already appeared on TV the same weekend as the new season of Transformers Prime.

    Shake it Up - S02E13 Copy Kat it Up Part 8 HD - YouTube

    That's her with the glasses and the pink sweater. The glasses are fake, just part of the costume. The show actually wrote her name wrong in the credits so according to Disney her name is Leah Batman. She's commented in the credits of this video as well her YouTube is LilLeahBate.

    I still talk to her and her mom every so often on FaceBook so I've known about this and other projects for a while and not sure how much I'm allowed to talk about publicly. This has already aired so I thought I'd just bring this one up. I'm so proud of her, going from live theater to the screen is quite a big leap. Won't be long before she moves on from doing bit parts like this to getting her own show.

    I was on TV once. Then the salesman said I couldn't sit on it anymore :D 

    I'll be here all week. Tip your waitress.

    I blame the fact that nothing else was on at the time. Yeah, lets go with that...

    There are 2 theaters and one of them is in Sonora yes. I mostly worked at the Columbia theater though which is where "Miracle Worker" was playing when I met Leah Bateman.

    Awesome.

    I was on TV once. Went to an Atlanta Braves game.

    MY glasses weren't fake, but my foam finger was part of the costume.

    The Fallon House theater. Been there.
    There's also a Playhouse in Murphys- Black Bart.

    I originally hail from that area.

    It would be... if she were a man. Batgirl maybe but Batman she is not.

    I should look that up because I'm in need of a new job. I was in "Dial M for Murder" not that anyone would ever know that was me because I never got credited for it. After 7 years of working for SRT I got fired all because I complained about not getting credit for a play I was in. :p
