Final dress went well last night, with just enough “crisis” to ensure that opening night will be brilliant! I am so pleased with my actors…a combination of seasoned actors and newcomers. They are awesome. Plus, I hopefully found someone to run sound for me on closing night, one of the last little details that has […]
Final dress rehearsal tonight for Prelude to a Kiss…it is always thrilling to see a show come together. And I have a GREAT ensemble cast…they have been fun to work with and I will miss them in a couple of weeks. Here’s hoping that my intimate little audience set-up has all the seats full for […]

I shepherded them through school, drove them to dance and music lessons, soccer, baseball, softball, football, swimming…you name it…I sat on the sidelines (errr…except for swimming…after developing a coccyx problem from sitting on the concrete risers […]
