Brian Hampton and Christina Morano (BigBean Productions) are joining forces! For the FILM adaptation of Brian's play, "Checking In" which world premiered at the Actors Guild of Lexington and had its New York Premiere at the June Havoc Theater Off-Broadway in the Midtown International Theatre Festival this summer!

Checking In, the movie has 60 days to make its goal!! We hope you'll donate what you can and pass this along to everyone you know that might love to help out and be a part of this exciting endeavor! Twitter, Facebook, Blogging, Email, Word of mouth. Every little bit helps!

Starring Natalie Buster, Allie Darden, Brian Hampton, Beverly Lauchner, Anna Nugent, and Jennifer Hyman Zimmerman – the cast from the New York Premiere!

"Checking In" is the story of six mixed-matched friends from high school now struggling to make their way in the world. Reuniting for a weekend of fun in Atlantic City, they rehash the past and catch up on the present. But, when they discover one of them has been hiding a shocking reality, the reasons send them all into a tailspin. Is there more to their bond than a case of beer, a carton of cigarettes, and a room full of high school nostalgia?

Take The Breakfast Club, mix in Steel Magnolias, shake with The Big Chill, and chug!
