Act Two: Personal Stories of Second Careers

Wednesday, November 10 at 11:00 AM
Central Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia
1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia
Room # 108, open at 10:45 AM

Sylvia Kauders: "I want to do this until they lay me in the ground. I plan to go down kicking and screaming, 'I haven't finished yet!'"
The Central Senior Services at the Parkway Central Branch of the Free Library of Philadephia is saluting Philadelphians who in mid-life or later, embarked on second careers that were radically different from their initial choices. Sylvia Kauders is scheduled to share her story on November 10. Sylvia was a Philadelphia civil servant who has become a very successful film and television actress. She has appeared in major movies such as Witness with Harrison Ford and The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke.  On television, she has appeared on Seinfeld and the Sopranos. 

Sylvia is currently shooting not just one, but two movies in New York City. Since there is always the possibility that she will be called to the set on November 10, a compelling back-up guest will be "waiting in the wings." 

Sheila Weiler is a former teacher and legal secretary who has become a cabaret singer and an actress in musicals.  She has sung at Judy’s and Danny’s Skyline Room in New York City and on stage at the Walnut Street Theater here.  Sheila received a scholarship to study at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in New London, Connecticut

This promises to be an entertaining and fascinating morning--whether you listen to Sylvia or to Sheila!
