‘Alice in Cableland’ Cast Named

Executives from Time Warner, Charter Communications, Starz and The Sportsman Channel are among the volunteers who’ll sing and dance on behalf of HIV/AIDS initiatives in the annual Positively Cable event, on Nov. 1.

The musical revue – titled “Alice in Cableland: Down the Money Hole” – will include such cable notables as Tom Feige, president of Time Warner Cable’s National Division; Mike Hayashi, senior VP of advanced engineering at Time Warner Cable; and Charter cable marketing executives Maria Rothschild, Laura Brayton and Emily Somerset. 

Paul Braun, also of TWC’s National Division, and Jane Shanley, VP of business development for Batmann Consulting, are writing the song parodies for them to perform, following the lead of professional troupe Rave Reviews.

Other identifiable cast members include Multichannel News columnist Leslie Ellis, Barbara McCoy of Starz, Eric Claytor of The Sportsman Channel, Larae Marsik from October Strategies, Rob Stuehrk of ScreenPlays magazine, Shellie Rosser of SR Consulting, and Alex D’Addio of D’Addio Productions.

Tickets are available for the event, which will be held at the Cable Center on the campus of the University of Denver. Over the past 13 years, the event has raised more than $750,000. Money from the event has benefited local Denver AIDS Service Organizations such as Mi Casa's HIV/AIDS prevention efforts with teenagers and Denver's Rainbow House, a daycare center for children whose lives are impacted by the disease.
