“I Use Antlers In All of My Decorating”
I recently coached a gifted group of playwrights through TRU (Theater Resources Unlimited) and helped them prepare their elevator pitch for producers. It was wonderful to explore what new works are being created and the passion and dedication these playwrights have to getting their work out there. If you’re a producer and you’re interested in hearing about any of these projects, shoot me an email and I’d be happy to connect you with a playwright/project that might be a good fit for you.
In September I went back to my old stomping grounds at Jean’s Playhouse to direct Almost, Maine. This theater gave me my start in directing, and I’m always thrilled to return to the White Mountains for a dose of nature and some good old-fashioned Summer Stock.
In May I had the honor of teaching my Business of Acting workshop to the theater students at SUNY Sullivan. I tailored this workshop specifically for their program, and the students and their professor were delightful to work with.
In April I had the pleasure of directing two children’s theater tours: Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun and My Mouth is a Volcano for Stars Within Reach Productions. We rehearsed in Hamburg, Pennsylvania, and were thrilled to discover that they use antlers in all of their decorating in this remote town. A personal highlight for me was finally visiting Hershey Park and experiencing Amish country for the first time.
