Neal R. Alvarez (writer) contrary to a prevalent range of belief, was, not the fifth Beatle. He was a student of the late, playwright and actor, Gardner MacKay, and wrote many works in his late teens and early twenties. For the next twenty-five years, he worked up from usher to a staff manager of one of the major theatre centers on the West Coast, negating his true calling, yet in this time, he recruited, hired and trained hundreds of underprivileged, inter-city teenagers, who have since become doctors, teachers, soldiers and police officers. He had the privilege to meet and speak with Groucho Marx, Cary Grant and Akira Kurosawa and became acquaintances of Danny Kaye and Gregory Peck. It was there that he met his, forgiving and beautiful wife of nearly thirty years, Peggy. Since then, he has worked as a set designer and prop master for Ray Bradbury’s theater company and is a house manager for the City of Downey. He thanks’ Kevin, Mark and others and he is honored to be a member of this group that consists of Mark Wild, Tim Toyama, who won an Academy Award, Jon, Karen, and so many others, and let me not forget our fearless leader, Ms. CheRae Adams, who sifts out the sand and finds the seeds.
