Trying to get NextGen Slideshow to show on homepage of blog

I just installed the theme, "OnStage for Actors." I'm running Wordpress 2.7.1., and today installed the latest version of NextGen Gallery and NextGen Slideshow. For some reason, I can't get the NextGen Slideshow to show on the homepage or any other page. I have two pictures in the gallery that I am choosing to use in the slideshow.

The blog is on another page (I'm assuming you can't have more than one blog on a Wordpress site). It populated when I created a page called, "blog" and set its template to "blog."

Any ideas why I can't get the slideshow to show on the homepage or any other page?

Also, on the blog page, it has a whole bunch of widgets. But when I go in the widget section of Wordpress and choose to show the widgets that are on the blog sidebar, there are none. So, I can't remove any of them.

The widgets that are on the actual blog page are Categories, Archive, Tags, Calendar, and Meta. Can I remove them? If so, how?

Also, is there a better Wordpress theme that you would suggest for an actor website than OnStage? And any suggestions for a Personal Trainer site?

TIA

this happened to me; in my case the default widget disappeared when i added some of my own.

there is a tutorial video linked from the bottom of your theme's download page; that may answer a lot of your theme specific questions.

i always find themes through google.
