Totem Pole Playhouse Awards 2015

by admin | May 22, 2015

Eric made a surprise visit at the Totem Pole Playhouse Awards last Monday. I’ve added one picture from Eric at the award ceremony to the website (credit: gettyburgtimes). Quite some people were lucky enough to meet him, you can see their pictures with the following links: Monica Blair, Chloe Yang, Aryanna Lupey, Lexi Lupey and @britt_nichole26.

Here are parts of two articles regarding the ceremony and Eric:

Bermudian Springs High School took home the top prize, the Carl Schurr Award for Outstanding Production of a High School Musical, for its production of “Seussical.” Eric Szmanda, from the long-running CBS series “C.S.I., Crime Scene Investigation,” surprised the sold-out crowd when he came on stage to present the final award. Szmanda is currently in rehearsals for the comedy “The Nerd,” which opens Totem Pole Playhouse’s 65th season May 29, and runs through June 14.


The night concluded with a few words from “C.S.I.” actor Eric Szmanda, who encouraged the area’s young actors to apply their love of performance to whatever they decide to pursue next in life.

“If you approach it with the same enthusiasm you did on the stage tonight, you’ll do just fine,” he said.

CSI: Two-hour series finale

by admin | May 13, 2015


I’m not sure yet how I feel about CSI being officially cancelled, but I’m glad we’re getting a two-hour series finale with both Grissom and Catherine back! The ‘movie’ will air on Sunday Sept 27!

You Don’t Want To Miss The Epic CSI Series Finale

It’s been years since fans got to see Supervisor Gil Grissom and Asst. Supervisor Catherine Willows together.  CSI will fix that — and fans will get their last fix — during an epic two-hour series finale airing on September 27. The star-studded farewell will feature original cast members William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger, along with current faves like Ted Danson.

Petersen anchored the show’s first nine seasons and Helgenberger was a mainstay for the first 12. Despite staying involved and making occasional appearances (Peterson even stayed on as an executive producer), fans just couldn’t get enough.  “We actually got a little misty-eyed about this one,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment. After 15 years and over 300 episodes, it’s the end of an era … but the legacy will continue.
The iconic series has already led to three spinoffs, and not all the characters are going away. Supervisor D.B. Russell, played by Danson, will move to CSI: Cyber, where he’ll team up with Academy Award-winner Patricia Arquette. After the CSI finale, CSI: Cyber will air on Sundays at 10/9c.
