Theatre Detrick, Nancy and Sean Fighting on Stage
History of stage fighting • in January 1990, film legends Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Stuart Granger were inducted as honorary SAFD members. In July 1990 the first SAFD Advanced Actor Combatant Workshop took place. • The AACW was designed and taught by J. Allen Suddeth and Erik Fredricksen, and focused on advanced techniques. "The SAFD is moving ahead," reported new president Suddeth in the Fall '90 issue of The Fight Master, the first under new editor Margaret Raether. The Fight Master moved to twice-yearly schedule, with the Cutting Edge published six times per year. 1990 also saw the first attempts to represent the SAFD on a local level. Eight representatives were selected to help distribute information to the membership.
