Hi guys…we’re in this weird “in-between” time right now, with nothing SUPER significant to talk about. But at the same time, lots of little stuff. Here’s a rundown:
-On Monday, we kick off 100 HAMILTONS for 2011. It’s going to be exciting, with prizes given out throughout the 2 week campaign. Make sure you check it out.
-We just put a job posting on Playbill.com looking for Associate Producers for the 2011-2012 season. Basically, we have a ton to get done, and a ton of ways we’d like to see the company grow. To do all that, we need more help. If you know anyone who might be interested, get in touch. Each person will work directly with Chris, Sue and me, and will play an integral part of the season.
-We’re really close to finalizing the space for the next Rep season. Nothing official to report, but a venue we are really excited about with some outstanding partners. Rep will open March 1st, 2012, and will include The Heliotrope Bouquet by Scott Joplin and Louis Chauvin by Eric Overmyer, Spring Tides by Melissa Gawlowski, and one more production TBA.
-We’re getting closer to also announcing our plans for Much Ado About Nothing. Stay tuned for that.
-I recently sent a report to the Department of Parks and Recreation in an attempt to get their help in restoring the lawn near the Boomerang Rock, to make our outdoor Shakespeare productions more comfortable for patrons and safer for our actors. Hopefully we’ll have some answers soon, even if it means 2012’s HAMLET will need to be in a different location while they work on the area. I’ll update you as that conversation continues.
-And finally, it’s Fringe Time, baby! Lots of excellent shows to see. Here’s what I’m seeing: Ampersand, An Average-Sized Mermaid, Dancing in the Garden, Theatre of the Arcade, Back to the Garden, and The Three Times She Knocked. Get out there and see some shows!
